Believe It Or Not: Upside Down Homes
Yes, you read that right!

Building a beautiful new home is always an architectural feat, but how about when the furniture and décor have been bolted tight to the ceiling? An upside-down house gives its visitors the illusion of fantasy and whimsy we thought we’d only witness in a Tim Burton film. Functionality makes room for design in these houses, and the results are fantastic.

The attention to detail makes each house fun to explore, because you never know what to expect at every turn. A popular upside-down house in Taipei, Taiwan (in photo) is a great example—check out the bits and pieces attached to those cupboards.

In Sabah, the famous “Rumah Terbalik” even features an upside-down car—definitely a spot for a quick photo op! The car, and its accompanying firebrick-red home, have been visited by curious tourists from Asia and beyond.

RL Tip: You can create a similar vibe—without having to nail your furniture to the ceiling—by hanging empty frames, accent dishes, or faux flowers on your wall.
