But this cheerful and glamorous home in designed by Maxime Jacquet takes a chic and playful approach towards the timeless classic. Combining pops of bright orange and yellow with silver grey and chocolate brown the luxurious interior of this fascinating home draws you in instantly.
A large opening above the kitchen allows light to filter through from the top floor even as the inimitable Tom Dixon Copper pendant lights add a bright metallic glint to the space. Long corridors double up as storage space with built-in shelves and hidden cabinets while an ergonomic home office is tucked away in the rear.
The garden that surrounds the house welcomes you at the entrance and also acts as a natural screen and a visual barrier. The lower level of the house features an open-plan living area with the kitchen and the dining space leading into the lovely backyard.
Presenting a sleek contemporary appeal from the outset the house paints a beautiful picture as the dark exterior complements the extensive use of glass in a balanced and aesthetic fashion. While the street façade of the house keeps away any prying eyes the backyard opens up to a lavish deck space complete with an outdoor lounge and a refreshing pool right next to it. An extensive garden around the house presents the perfect backdrop for this minimal home that charms with a smart use of diverse textures.
The clean and simple lines that define the home are also reflected in the decor choices and colorful additions are kept to a bare minimum. A gorgeous dining area with an oversized pendant light and a kitchen with a long breakfast bar complete the lower level.
Privacy was a key issue in shaping the overall contours of the house as the homeowners wanted a beautiful family house that kept away any prying eyes while letting in ample natural ventilation. A smart combination of skylights sliding screens with wooden slats and upper level windows were used to accomplish this task.
Bright pops of red yellow and purple enliven the home in the form of accent decor additions while a stylish stainless steel staircase with glass railing stands out visually along with a cool glass walkway!
