One would assume that building a stylish and soothing retreat in a place like the New Forest National Park in UK is a delicate balancing act. Not only does the natural getaway need to be luxurious and contemporary on the inside but it also has to be a sustainable project.
The kitchen sparkles. It has plenty of cabinets and a kitchen island that provides more than enough storage space eye-catching glass shelves and beautiful pendant lights from Artemide to complete the looks. The open space environment also houses an elegant dining table and a very small home office space in case you need to search the Internet for a fancy recipe when guests are coming over.
Walk through the long hallways and you’ll reach the bedroom; it’s airy bright and graceful in form. From the bedroom you connect with a modern bathroom. It has a charming walk-in shower (with a wood planked wall) beautiful quartz composite sinks and custom made wall panels to support them.
Contemporary features of the home were enhanced further by adding a stunning floating staircase with a glass railing. Interesting art work on the walls and the iconic Eames Lounger complete the transformation of House 1005 with style and sophistication!
We have already showcased some gorgeous contemporary homes from Nico van der Meulen Architects and in Johannesburg is another one of these in this fabulous line of modern residences. Located on the side of a hilly terrain and surrounded by green canopy the home offers some wonderful views of the city below. Sleek and stylish to the core the interiors of this affluent home are as appealing as the façade on the outside.
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.
A multitude of colors speaks about the joy to live it’s a constant reminder of the beautiful things in life and their tendency to mix and match. As each life is different each home display the happiness impetuosity naturalness its inhabitants believe in.
