Peek Inside an Architect’s Bright Modern Home in Ireland
In this episode of Houzz TV Live, architect Denise O’Connor of Optimise Home takes viewers through spaces inside her renovated 1950s open-plan home in Dublin. O’Connor knocked down walls to connect the kitchen and living areas, and added walls of glass sliding doors to connect the interiors to a spacious backyard. A mostly white palette — white kitchen cabinets, walls, ceiling and mostly white porcelain tile floors — enhances the natural light that floods in through the glass doors, a large skylight and a window behind the range (called a hob in Ireland). Subtle but significant black accents add a graphic element to the crisp backdrop, creating a timeless black-and-white color scheme.
