Large oversized pendants above the dining table give a dash of industrial vibe to the dining area with empty corners being turned into the kids’ playarea with the simple use of a teepee. Comfortable bedrooms with attached bathrooms and ample closet room complete a stylish home that easily adapts to the various needs of its denizens.
Every home has a certain distinct architectural feature or design quirk that makes it special and ensures that it stands out from the crowd. There are times when it is the facade that does the trick and then there are other occasions when it is something on the inside that grabs your attention.
If there is one design and decorating trend that seems to be catching on fast and only growing with each day then it is the expansive use of wood in homes and offices. The polished plastic surfaces of the 90’s seem to firmly be on the out as homeowners long for a sense of serenity and coziness.
It is not very often that you find modern makeovers utilize wood paneling in such an extensive fashion and yet keep the ‘contemporary’ edge of the home intact. With a small bedroom that flows into the patio outside and whimsical additions like the small swing next to the dining space this French home is a blend of finesse and a whole lot of fun!
It is the entrance courtyard with its traditional Mexican style coupled with Mediterranean goodness and tropical vibe that leaves you breathless. Everywhere you look there is a carpet of green and privacy is never an issue.
A metallic mesh frame creates the other half of the edifice and provides the perfect balance between privacy and controlled ventilation. On the inside the living space is simple unassuming and a neutral color palette ensures that the focus remains firmly on the landscape that sits outside.
The street façade of this polished contemporary home sets itself apart from others thanks to a gorgeous brick wall and design that seems to combine contrasting textures with ease. It is this bold and yet seamless blend of different elements that resonates throughout the house making it both inviting and inimitable.
