While the grand cabin has an exceptional style of its own the beautiful use of natural stone reclaimed wood cowhide-covered decor and other plush textures brings in that unmistakable rustic vibe. Yet the presence of large sliding glass doors brings an element of modernity and connects the spacious lower-level living area with the carefully crafted outdoor living space. The line between the two is instantly blurred as you would find yourself spending more time around the outdoor fireplace while the star-studded sky takes over each evening!
Additions like the bookcase on the home office level (built out of harvested birch trunks and glass panels) give the interior a distinct ambiance. Most of the colors are inspired by the many sights and sounds outside while iconic decor additions brilliant lighting and sculptural features like the spiral staircase elevate the appeal of the contemporary villa. Sliding frames with wooden slats shape the façade of the home while allowing those inside to switch between complete seclusion and unabated views with ease.
This continuous stone wall starts right at the entry and extends all the way to the shower area in the master suite! Visually connecting one area of the home with the rest it gives the interior an additional texture as it keeps away the street noise.
The first thing you notice as you step off of the elevator that opens directly into the penthouse is the soaring glass atrium that allows sunlight to flood the entire apartment. The design’s musical references become more and more apparent as your eye traces the rich wood of the floor and dramatic fret-like staircase that mimics the neck of a violin.
Sensible choices in terms of furniture and accessories helped in providing a beautiful bridge between the classic and the contemporary. Even though that backdrop of each room is kept neutral bright blues lovely yellows and refreshing greens create a lively elegant home.
