What do you do when you suddenly realize that your home doesn’t suit your needs and taste anymore? You start renovating! That’s exactly what a couple from Bellevue Washington decided to do with their home. But they didn’t settle with just any renovation. Together with Seattle-based they came up with a ground-up remodel that turned their residence into a real dream home.
A warm outer cladding allows the home to blend in seamlessly with the natural tones outside. Large floor-to-ceiling glass windows offer unabated views of the world outside as you escape from a mundane life in the concrete jungle!
An abundance of colors can also balance the cold feeling of materials used to create the living spaces. For example colorful glass vases accentuated by expressive paintings cut through the cold atmosphere buried in the steel and glass staircase thus lifting the floating staircase to new levels of expression.
