One glance at the images of the exterior, interior and outdoor areas of the house will make us realize how stunning this residence really is and you can already note the materials it used from this image.
On this side of the house, you can see a small seating area on a concrete paver. I like the idea that they used yellow chairs that bring some exciting pop of color into it. Notice also the modern landscaping used here.
The interior of the house looks really relaxing not just because of the colors and materials it used but also with the view one can get from it. What I like here is the fireplace and the furniture they used.
Glass windows are used around the house which complements with the wooden materials. In the living room, there is also white open shelving that stores some items on a basket.
The house has an open layout that connects the living area to the other area like the kitchen and dining.
With the tall windows, one can take a look at the view outside the house where the garden is located. The windows combine glass and wood too which makes it beautiful.
The dining room doesn’t just give you a good view of the outdoor area but it is also a nice spot to dine in. It has a wooden dining table and white modern chairs. Above it are silver pendant lightings.
The kitchen is just the right size to offer the owner everything they need for food preparation. It has a textured, marble countertop that looks lovely with the white colors and wooden materials in the space.
In the bedroom, it used contrasting black and white for the furniture and accessories. Like the other areas, this one also gives a good view of the surrounding.
The bathroom has a vanity combining an interesting countertop with wood. On the floor are gray mosaic tiles that complements with the marble wall near the bath tub.
Isn’t this nice? I like it that they used natural wood as floating vanity for this area. The plant on a white container added a fresh appeal to it.
This is indeed a nice place to rest and spend time with the family. Aside from the white chairs, it added some pop of colors with the blue cushions it used. Very relaxing space indeed!
The facade of the house reveals the use of lines and shapes as well as variety of materials. Even the lighting is nice too which adds drama to it.
The house is indeed a beauty from the exterior to the interior. What I like about the exterior is how it played with lines and shapes and put them all together to create a lovely home. Even the addition of glass and wood completes its look. This home is designed by JW Architects who also made sure that it will have a relaxing, cozy and beautiful interior making it an ideal home to live it. This is indeed a house that anyone would love to live. What can you say about it?
