Usually uber-minimal interiors leave me feeling a little underwhelmed... but a light touch seems entirely appropriate when you've got views like this one.

This is a vacation house located in the foothills of Morocco's Atlas mountains (and presumably not in the sight lines of any other buildings). The home's French designers, Studio Ko, have chosen to leave the walls entirely bare, in order to let the breathtaking views take center stage.

In one of the bedrooms, a huge door (window? windoor?) rotates on its axis to bring the outdoors in. I love how the neutral colors used throughout the home reflect the landscape. It makes the house seem like a frame through which to view the mountains... and that's a beautiful thing.
