That house is a dream, even if I personally don't like the final result (mainly decoration choices). The layout around a courtyard, wooden floor, scissor trusses, stone fireplace, windows framing the landscape, all beautiful features. I dislike the hyper-conventional color scheme (white, grey, wood) and especially the white glossy kitchen, ends up giving a stiff and hotel-ish feel (that most people would call "elegant" or "chic" I guess), a pity for such a beautiful house. I would have preferred a warmer and more relaxed atmosphere , especially for a vacation house. It's all too smooth and serious. But only a very personal opinion, it fits the taste of the owners and that's what counts.

vmbluelemur. Thank you for your comments. The Kitchen actually is a colour called Moleskin, which is a beautiful warm coffee/taupe colour. The floorboards are called Fendi which is a warm American Oak. The house is based on natural tones found at the beach, which harmonise with the landscape and garden. The central fireplace is basalt (bluestone) which creates contrast and a richness to the colour scheme. It is a very elegant home that also is very comfortable and relaxed. The client absolutely loves the result and all our designs are in collaboration with our clients.

All the best. Alishia
