An interesting feature of the home’s design is the innovative use of black in every room that anchors the large open spaces and defines them in a minimal fashion.

The black white and wood color palette lets the home standout visually even while ensuring that the smart contemporary aesthetic is not lost whatsoever.

A blend of unique antique pieces collected by the homeowner and modern furniture finds creates an interesting and ingenious living atmosphere. An outstanding garden filled with lush green plants and a relaxing pool with a deck that can easily host a fun evening party complete a home that is both practical and elegant at the same time.
But that is not where the many eco-friendly traits of this house end. Every little element has been carefully put in place to enhance its overall ‘green quotient’ and absolutely nothing is random or coincidental. Large glass windows and sliding glass doors bring in plenty of natural light along with cleverly placed skylights even as the open lower-level living area charms with its cool sunken living room. With a dining area and kitchen that are equally relaxing and yet unassuming you have an interior where less is definitely more.
