The Desert House—designed by Ken Kellogg and located in the Joshua Tree National Park—looks like a retro futuristic science fiction set outside. Inside it is the kind of place I imagine as Khaleesi's holiday home, where she goes to chill out with her dragons. I want to call this style space age medieval futurism.

And she would chillax indeed—even while the $3,000,000 home is in the desert, it seems quite fresh and comfortable inside. Here's the official description:

The Desert House: The most important architectural house you may have never seen. It is physically of the desert, a part of its surroundings. The strength of the hard and rugged protective shell exterior is drawn from the desert. The interior is a warm intimate space of flowing organic shapes wrapping gently around its inhabitants. Light enters through continuous openings that separate the towering concrete panels. The textures provide the touch and feel of the desert as materials were meticulously selected from the desert. The property highlights the masculine and feminine forms that are the hallmark of organic architecture.
