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.
A neutral color scheme defines much of the interior with large wall art additions bringing in some much needed color. It is the dining room that acts as a transition zone between the interior and the small rear yard even as the living area and kitchen sit at the front.
This was conceived and brought to life precisely on this principle by AworkDesign Studio – an open and versatile interior that caters to the needs of an urban family with kids. It is hardwood that shapes the interior of this serene setting where open living spaces can also be turned into ingenious and fun play zones with ease.
It is the living area along with the kitchen and dining that sit at the front of the home with the study bedrooms and other private spaces shielded away from prying eyes in the rear section. A captivating rooftop deck with 360 degree views complete a residence that was shaped as much by the landscape as it was by the choice of the homeowners!
The last few seasons have seen midcentury modern style take a backseat to industrial and rustic elements when it comes to home design and decorating.

But still the interior feels strictly contemporary (with a fun twist) and the kitchen and dining space on the lower level continue this theme.
Walls clad in wooden boards create beautiful corridors a light-filled stairwell and a master bedroom that flows into the balcony outside. From the kitchen to the bedrooms greenery is an integral part of every element of Casa O’ as one is left marveling at how contemporary and nature-centric design principles converge so effortlessly at this sensational residence.
