A charming little house with a calming gray interior is made magical by a really low white picket fence. The functionality of the fence is not a priority in this case – it’s all about the strong decorative value! Picket fences have been around for decades growing in popularity with each year. Seeing an old-fashioned house with such a fence shouldn’t be a surprise but we’re still stunned about how much fresher a setting looks like all because of a white fence!
On the inside it is cement blocks that set the ambiance with some painted in bright red and others left exposed. A gorgeous and striking kitchen island in red and an equally dramatic staircase in bright yellow bring even more color indoors.
But there comes a time when the basic bones of a house are no longer reusable and an entirely new edifice is the best options. Facing a similar situation Kennedy Nolan created this beautiful even while cleverly combining it aesthetically with its more Edwardian neighborhood! The combination between elegant modern aesthetics and the traditional silhouette feels both whimsical and organic.
Wooden screens brise soleil and smart planning ensure that this elegant vacation home finds that perfect balance between openness and complete privacy. On the inside a neutral color scheme is disturbed by pops of red even as exposed granite and stone granule plaster give the escape a touch of rustic charm.
A gourmet kitchen open dining area and spacious sitting zone flow onto the deck outside and blur the traditional indoor-outdoor boundary. A restrained color scheme ensures that focus remains firmly on the use of diverse finishes.
Décor is kept intentionally understated with the focus firmly on the inviting yard just outside. Calming charming and contemporary – this Mexican residence offers a great template for anyone planning to create a home that can host a lovely staycation!
The great hall becomes the heart of the house with a neutral color scheme using gray and white creating a polished and inviting ambiance. Art work adds pops of color to each space with widen partitions and cabinets ushering in textural contrast.
