The concrete beams that are lit ever so elegantly make up the ceiling of the living space and steal the show with ease. Plush décor in white and grey is used throughout and walls in muted tones bring in the contemporary style. Stone and glass are the elements that are largely utilized with wooden surfaces being sporadic and largely relegated to the kitchen and the deck space on the outside.
Though the color palette of the home is neutral with pristine white dominating the scene a touch of warm wooden surfaces and dash of color here and there offers balanced contrast. Modern art on the walls and accent pillows help add further color to the space.
Brilliant bright and sporting ample space the main challenge in designing and decorating this luxurious home came in the form of filling up all that space on offer! The designers had to be careful in ensuring a presence of visual and textural balance even as splashes of color brought in inviting warmth.
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.
The interiors are kept largely neutral in white and gray with a bright red accent couch in the living space stealing the show. Stylish use of skylights make sure there is appropriate natural light even in the private areas while an expansive deck to the north allows the residents to be at one with the bamboo and Japanese maple backdrop. A beautiful wooden staircase connects the lower level with the top floors and a concrete path above the water surface in the backyard makes for a cool walkway.
