Yet step inside and you will come across elegantly placed stone surfaces beautiful exposed wooden beams that grace the ceiling and a tinge of copper here and there to invite the rustic exteriors indoors. A seamless amalgamation of the antique and the trendy the home exudes grace and tranquility.
These sumptuous living conditions and surroundings that we create for ourselves help us experience new truths and discover new stories. Luxury and colorful interiors seem to make a good home together when everything is balanced by carefully selected materials patterns and design lines.

The new and extended feature seems to steal the spotlight and falls in line with the trend of home owners opting for renovations clad in glass and protruding into a spacious backyard. The visual connectivity with the world outside combined with its contrasting presence makes the ‘glassy’ kitchen and family space an instant hit.
