Inspire Me Monday: Sleeping Under the Stars in Chile

What better way to spend hot summer nights than sleeping under the magnificent stars of the Elqui Valley? The Elqui Domes are located in a remote area of mid-western Chile and specialize in all things astronomy. All of the tent-like domes and cabins on the property open upwards into the night sky, so that residents can literally sleep under the stars and stargaze all night long. The facilities also include multiple telescopes, star guides, and many of the amenities of a hotel resort.

Not every mid-century architect designed his/her own home, but when one did, the results were almost always breathtaking and unique. Below, take a look at some of the houses our favorite architects created as their own dwelling.
