A beautifully curated garden leads the way to the grand private entrance of the house. Architects used a mix of Brazilian Ipe wood and glass to shape the exterior of the residence while aluminum louvers were used to keep out the harsh Miami sun.
Wood is the predominant material used in the shaping of the interior with knotty wooden floors providing a sense of continuity from one room to the next. Subtle industrial touches such as the bar stools and the pendant lights in the kitchen along with other accessories give the home an edgy appeal.
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.
On the inside insulated structural panels and passive heating and cooling technologies have been used to make the house as energy efficient as possible. Embracing a minimalist design with clean straight lines the box-like outline of the home sets the tone for the decor and color choices inside.
Renovating an old dreary home into a beautiful modern residence can be a demanding task at the best of times. In fact many of us find a small kitchen renovation or a bedroom makeover to be a task too cumbersome to undertake and therefore put if off infinitely!
