It's Sunday morning, and that means its time for another round up of the most popular articles of the week!
There was some stiff competition over the past seven days, and as always it was a bit of a David and Goliath story. Humble little Japanese houses battled it out against opulent Turkish mansions… and won! Meanwhile, kitchen cleaning tips, inspirational family homes, and tiny interior gardens all got you talking. But what did you love the most?
Malaysia, you have made your voice heard. Opting for modesty over luxury, you unanimously decided that you want to see these sweet and realistic homes all over again. Without further ado, here is your top five…
This elegantly minimal bungalow was your top pick of the week, and for good reason! The sleek design and well-manicured lawn is inspiring in its simplicity, and the aesthetic is carried on throughout the interior.
Japanese architecture is always a winner, but this home resonated particularly with you – perhaps because the pared-down style is in keeping with the latest Malaysian interior trends.

Too often, our entrance halls get neglected in favour of the big-bucks rooms like the living room and the kitchen. But we are all forgetting that, actually, the hallway is the first impression that visitors get of our homes. Surely we should invest a little more time and effort into making them look first rate?
Perhaps that's why you loved our collection of inspiring and amazing entrance halls. All too often, this small space can be a nightmare to decorate, but these varied examples show that anything is possible!
Country style chic isn't usually the most popular of styles in Malaysia, but this modern twist on traditional charm went down a storm. The Polish studio apartment leans heavily on a timeless rustic aesthetic, but exposed white brick walls and clean, orderly lines give it a 21st century edge.
What was most amazing, though, was just how much was squeezed into this tiny home without it looking at all cluttered. Check it out for yourself – it's a miracle!
We've shown this house before, but it is so universally adored that we couldn't help but share it again. Give the people what they want, after all…
This neat little house was designed as a retreat for a young family. Style is not sacrificed due to a lack of space – far from it. In fact, the inside of the home is remarkably spacious, and full of light thanks to the inclusion of subtle highlight windows, which supplement the bigger ones. This house is one of many minimal abodes on our
top picks list, but it differs from most in that quirky details are hidden around, just waiting to be discovered. Search them out here!
Everyone loves a happy ending, especially when the story involves an epic makeover along the way! This sad little kitchen is hardly eye-catching, but you were intrigued by the possibilities the space held. Quite rightly, too – these were some of the most impressive home renovations we've ever seen. Look past those dirty tiles and see the potential, then check out how that was sculpted into every person's dream kitchen!
That's all from us for now. Read, get inspired, and look out for our third homify Malaysia round up next week!
