Instead of flying several hundred miles during each holiday season or frantically trying to beat traffic and congestion a staycation makes things a lot simpler far more economic and also helps in bringing families together. And if you have a yard deck and pool like the in Mexico then the holiday at home seems magical as well! Designed by Augusto Quijano Arquitectos the refined contemporary residence was crafted for a couple whose kids no longer lived at home.
On the inside it is cement blocks that set the ambiance with some painted in bright red and others left exposed. A gorgeous and striking kitchen island in red and an equally dramatic staircase in bright yellow bring even more color indoors.
A large house can give the impression that it’s looming over the low picket fence making it appear even smaller than it is. Color-coordinated with a fence on the porch this white picket fence contrasts the house with its short height! A tall white house built in a Victorian style looks like it escaped out of a dream! The whole setting is absolutely magical and greatly perfected by the white picket fence that carries a bit of a vintage style itself!
Apart from providing a shaded outdoor area the verandahs also keep out scorching sun during hot summer days and help in naturally regulating the temperature inside. Cool breeze that flows from the South West further creates a comfortable living environment with the pool become the hub of frantic activity each evening.
A fold of natural light illuminates the modern kitchen and dining with the outdoors becoming a part of the interior. Space-conscious home workstations and unassuming minimal décor enhance the ‘modernist’ appeal of a house that has shed its classic cloak.
Even though concrete and wood are extensively used throughout the house it is a neutral color scheme coupled with curated décor and high-end art pieces that give the residence a sophisticated contemporary aura. This continues in the sleek kitchen and the inviting dining space where color is kept to a bare minimum.
Set in a picturesque landscape with plenty of rustic charm in Finland is a fabulous modern villa that seems to bring together different styles and even more contrasting worlds! Designed by Mer Arkkitehdit this seaside ecsape offers much more than a view of the waves with different vistas presenting a trio of completely different sceneries.
