A charming little house with a calming gray interior is made magical by a really low white picket fence. The functionality of the fence is not a priority in this case – it’s all about the strong decorative value! Picket fences have been around for decades growing in popularity with each year. Seeing an old-fashioned house with such a fence shouldn’t be a surprise but we’re still stunned about how much fresher a setting looks like all because of a white fence!
But there comes a time when the basic bones of a house are no longer reusable and an entirely new edifice is the best options. Facing a similar situation Kennedy Nolan created this beautiful even while cleverly combining it aesthetically with its more Edwardian neighborhood! The combination between elegant modern aesthetics and the traditional silhouette feels both whimsical and organic.
Set in an idyllic landscape filled with majestic mountains and a lush green landscape that comes alive each summer in Merishausen brings modernity to a relaxing rural setting. Designed by Dost this contemporary residence in gray sits on a sloped lot (not a surprise) and overlooks the village below.
It is rough kadappa and brown kotah stone that dominate the interior and courtyard while black granite takes over in the contemporary bathrooms. Locally sourced valsadi wood puts the final touches on a vacation home that places emphasis on nature and serenity. Contemporary homes are increasingly combining the idea of a lovely vacation and a relaxing ambiance with a functional modern home that does it all.
Apart from the timber slats it is the delightful use of Cumaru wood for the creation of the expansive deck and the living area concrete walls on the lower level and exquisite stone finishes that usher in plenty of textural contrast and an air of sophistication. Each space flows into the next effortlessly with sliding glass doors delineating space.
While green roof and the spacious rear year allow the homeowners to enjoy quality gardening time the inherent minimalism of the interior presents a polished contemporary look. Combining nature with modernity the design aims to bring together the best of both worlds; with a hint of sustainability!
To say that is a place for glitz glamor and all things affluent would be a great understatement. It is home for the rich and the famous and a party zone that is studded with the most luxurious homes and retreats that you will ever come across.
