103-year-old Clingstone mansion set on a rock island in Narragansett Bay is owned by Boston architect Henry Wood. Even though the all-wood home with 360-degree view of the ocean is quite old and rough it’s still warm and beautiful. Three stories tall house features 23 rooms, 10 of which are bedrooms. Even though the house is quite expensive to maintain because of it’s made of wood, it still use modern technologies to cut pay bills. Solar panels heat the water, and a wind turbine on the roof generates electricity. Rainwater is collected in a 3,000-gallon cistern, then filtered, treated and pumped through the house for cleaning purposes. Besides that, Clingstone house use the latest technologies in filtering seawater and the most up-to-date composting toilets. The house is maintained by an ingenious method: the Clingstone work weekend. Held every year around Memorial Day, it brings 70 or so friends and Clingstone lovers together to tackle jobs like washing all 65 of the windows. Anne Tait, who is married to Mr. Wood’s son Dan, refinished the kitchen floor on one of her first work weekends. In wintertime, the House on a Rock stands out in the icy gray seascape. The house was abandoned in the 1940’s until it was bought by Henry Wood.

Create a restful haven with stylish furniture, cosy bed linen and chic accessories. You spend a third of your life in your bedroom, it’s worth making an effort! Your bedroom should be a serene oasis where the worries of the day melt away. Let big furniture pieces set the tone, while accent pieces, lighting, and color define your personal style.

There’s something to be said about achieving a unique look when it comes to decorating bedrooms, and while most people would love to add their own personal touches to their bedrooms, actually achieving this goal can be challenging. Many homeowners fear that they’ll commit a fashion faux pas while others feel that they just don’t have what it takes to transform a blank canvas into something interesting.

A bedroom is a private room where people usually sleep for the night or relax during the day.Many houses in North America, Australia and Europe have at least two bedrooms-usually a master bedroom and one or more bedrooms for either the children or guests.

Furniture and other items in bedrooms vary greatly, depending on taste and local tradition. For instance, a master bedroom may include a bed of a specific size, one or more dressers, a nightstand; one or more closets; and carpeting. In some jurisdictions there are basic features which a room must have in order to be qualify as a bedroom. In many states, such as Alaska, bedrooms are not required to have closets and must instead meet minimum size requirements. Nevertheless, some real estate agents may stretch the definition when listing a home for sale.

Designed by William O’Brien Jr., the assistant professor of Architecture in Cambridge, Massachusetts, this unusual vacation house plan is an A-frame house in the forest that stands out among the trees.  Small but sweet, this compact vacation cottage provides a retreat from all the hustle and bustle. The forest setting is as appreciated from the outdoors as it is in, thanks to the home’s expansive glass walls. Three asymmetrical A-frames culminate in this oddly shaped house. The Skinny A-frame houses the library, wine cellar and garage; the wide, central frame is occupied by the bedrooms and baths; while the kitchen, living and dining are to be found in the third. The house aims to undermine the seeming limitations of a triangular section by augmenting and revealing the extreme proportion in the vertical direction, and utilizing the acutely angled corners meeting the floor as moments for thickened walls, telescopic apertures and built-in storage.

Perched on a converted 19th-century Tribeca warehouse, this five-story glass house may look like it landed during a freak storm. In fact, it was more of a freak development move, which left an empty frame on the rooftop of 60 Warren Street until some artistic owners fixed it up with a shimmering white chandelier and a mosaic of Napoleon behind the tub. Now owned by retired tchotchke-maker Edward Bazinet, it’s got all the comforts of a $28 million home—including, according to the Sotheby’s listing, seven bedrooms, three terraces, a full-floor master suite and a rooftop gym.

A large bedroom chamber has a fireplace and windows that open to a another wide, west facing terrace. In addition to the sky lit dressing room that separates the bedroom area from the dual poopers, the children will take note of the dee-voon  and well conceived “luggage” storage room. We should all be so lucky to have a separate closet to store our luggage. The identically sized and fitted his and his poopers share a party sized shower.

Edward Bazinet, a retired businessman, has listed his beautiful Tribeca apartment. While Bazinet made his fortune in selling tchotkes  his apartment is a beautiful showcase of modern design. The 19-room unit has just two bedrooms but is spread out over five floors. What would be more bedrooms has been converted into a “work zone” with a reception gallery, office, studio space, study and storage room. The home also has three terraces plus a private roof garden. The master suite takes up a full floor and has a fireplace, bathrooms, skylit walk-in closet, a separate Jacuzzi room and a terrace. The kitchen has an adjacent breakfast room with a fireplace. Other features include 1,000-bottle wine storage, rooftop home gym, a stainless steel/glass staircase and private elevator connecting the floors. One of the most interesting floors is the media room which has a library and a large reading room. This apartment is listed at $28 million by Stephen McRae of Sotheby’s Homes.
