Exterior of the house is coated in glass, allowing light and fresh air inside. “Shutters clad with sawn timber battens adds a balance of texture to the rendered and glass façades. Black stone floors used throughout living spaces with carbonised oak flooring and timber detail to compliment the stone. Simple and elegant bathrooms that combine matt white with additional use of the black stone.” The striking simple design as well as the serenity encompassing the house played a key elements in completing this wonderful, uncluttered home.
In addition to furs we are also seeing lots of leather, suede and even metallic leather. The metallic hues are bringing traditional leathers into a whole new light, giving the contemporary image an even more modern edge. The metallic hues also add a touch of glamour and sophistication. Concurrently, lace is making a grand comeback. We saw it first on the runways and we’re seeing it again in the shelter magazines. It’s time to dust off your grandmother’s heirloom table cloth. What’s old is new again!
Of course, this is not a design marriage for the faint of heart. One would have to be daring in order to have the nerve to try it. Obviously, it is best to attempt this only under the supervised watch of a skilled design architect. The good news is that you can have the best of both worlds —modern and traditional.

Everything from the vaulted ceilings, to the exposed structural elements, to the unusual linear elements— all equate to a unique, artistic design that you cannot help but be amazed by.
