Chilly mountain air descends down to the valley from the lofty peaks each afternoon turning the prospect of an open outdoor garden into an impossibility. To get around this problem Aarón Carrillo Díaz decided to bring the greenery indoors along with the sight of the open sky and plenty of natural light and sweeping terraces.
Color is rarely seen here with a neutral palette industrial style lighting minimal bedrooms and the of glass and wood partitions shaping a smart space-savvy interior. A makeover that respects the old even while embracing the new!
Another distinctive trait of the house is the way in which the new internal walls and partitions sit some way away from the concrete beams and the niche between the two is illuminated using smart accent lighting. This creates a cheerful and well-kit atmosphere even as the living area flows into kitchen and dining space next to it.
A wooden accent wall steals the show in the entryway and the bedroom while the large living room in white is punctuated by a dark black feature wall with shelves fireplace and a cozy window seat. White is the color of choice indoors even as large glass doors usher in natural light.
A lovely walkway tall oak trees and a dashing breezeway welcome you at this exquisite Californian home. The Breezeway perfectly captures the relaxing light-hearted spirit of the house even as it offers a stunning view of the mountainous countryside beyond.
Connectivity with nature was the driving force behind the form of this Japanese residence and the unique L-shaped cutout in its living space that leads one on to the wooden deck outside. Large glass doors and cleverly placed corner windows bring the distant mountains indoors even as the many sights and sounds outside leave you spellbound.
In both the bedroom and the living area it is the fireplace that becomes the focal point of it all with inviting relaxation zones and conversation nooks next to them. White light gray and brown are used to shape the backdrop in each room with festive motifs acting as smart accents in a home where bright colors are a rarity.
