This ambience, evident in the architectural elements used, was successfully achieved, and further enhanced by well-placed furnishings and interior design elements. The use of volume throughout the home as well as a plethora of natural sunshine creates light and airy living spaces.

The overall design concepts stemmed from the owners themselves, and as a result the services of an interior designer were only needed for the finer finishing touches.

The main bedrooms centre around an array of pale hues consistent with the rest of the abode. This is further accentuated by soft embroidered voiles and Roman blinds as window treatment. The tones of the children’s bedroom, too, followed the house theme with muted hues of pink, white, cream and soft greens creating a feminine feel while still keeping the designs age-appropriate.

The entrance hall is almost a triple volume space flanked by a staircase on either side beckoning one down towards the living areas. Breaking the staircase on either side is an elegant floating staircase in the centre leading towards the second level.

The kitchen boasts an attractive “cream-washed” interior, with the island being practical by providing both a workstation and a dining area. Certain areas within the kitchen were given added flair by using beautiful arches, cornices and elegant flower woodwork detail.

A muted palette throughout ensures that serenity and calm exude above all, laying the foundation for a dream.
