Size:
To make a good house size usually doesn't matter, what matters is that it looks good. Get started by choosing landscape that fits your style and choose how big you want it to be.
Design:
There are many different styles of building. For example there is modern which contains mostly wood and wool. There is also medieval which contains cobblestone and glass. Choose your design carefully depending on which kind of house you want.

Blocks:
Now that you have chosen a design we will be discussing what we will use to build said house. For example wool and diamonds do not looks good together, but spruce and glass do. Do not use a texture pack when building because not everyone will see the same thing you do. (only applies to multiplayer) Wool is a great building material (white wool) because it looks well with many blocks including wooden planks, leaves, glowstone (great for lighting), and glass. Consider wool and glass as a base for your buildings. Remember, wool has many different colors allowing many possibilities, such as flags or statues.

Redstone:
Keep in mind, that when making your house have enough space in it to safely hide redstone. You may say "I don't need redstone" but you might later. For example, what if you wanted to automate your farm or build a sorter. You'll need space to hide the redstone so people or creepers don't destroy it! I recommend building a chest room or whatever you want redstoned so to speak, underground. It will leave much space to hide the redstone. You can even build an elevator for style!

Building:
To start building a house is very simple once you've carved out your area and decided what you want to build. For instance say I want to build the house above. First I would start with the rough outline of wood. Then build the roof. After that, I would put in the windows and balcony. If you take about 10 minute out of your day to think about what you want your house to look like, you can start visualizing it in minecraft. Finally, after everything else is done, I would put in the finishing touches and then you have your house!

The final step:
This is the easiest part. Once you are done building your wonderful creation, show it off. Have a party with your friends.(multiplayer) Or invite some villagers over instead. (singleplayer)

Examples:
Here are some examples:

I would say size doesn't matter, as long as it looks good.

That is true but its a lot easier to fit your materials in a lager house. Ajust for size though.

A fair point, but there's basements for stuff like that.  I use small houses for looks, all my storage and stuff will usually be in a basement of sorts, or in some other location.
