Looking at this magnificent abode, it is hard to believe that when the owners purchased the home it was in a sad and sullen state. Seeing its potential beauty, even when looking a little neglected, these home owners embarked on a massive renovation project and turned this house into a stunning home.
As with most houses built in an estate, there are certain guidelines that need to be followed – as was the case with this home. However, in order to make their home unique and distinguishable from the others in the estate, these owners gave their architects a specific brief stipulating their desires for a home that reflected a seamless merge of indoor and outdoor living
Whether you are decorating one room or a whole house, knowing what you want and following a few basic steps can make the whole process a lot simpler and easier. Many home owners may take on the task of decorating their interiors as a whole but this may become too daunting and the result not as satisfactory.
The brief for this home was fairly simple: an open-plan home with a seamless flow and design between the public spaces of the interior. “The brief to the architect was to create a space that has a nice flow to it – with minimal ‘constraining’ walls,” the residents explain.
Finding the story or intention behind any home is always an interesting discovery. Heavily inspired by the beautiful palm trees, which have been in this garden since its inception, the house forms a seamless backdrop with its neutral colours creating a serene yet invigorating outdoor ambience.
The discerning owners of this elegant abode chose this particular house because they fell in love with the Georgian look. “We envisaged a warm, comfortable family home that our children could enjoy as much as we could,” adds the owner. The graceful architectural style of the structure is also enhanced by the lovely wooden windows and doors throughout.
