Comfort is combined with aesthetics seamlessly at every turn with features such as the stone fireplaces in living area bedroom bathrooms and even the patio; exposed timber beams; and fabulous lighting creating an inviting ambiance. Masterfully framed views become a part of the home’s narrative at every turn and one stays constantly connected with the majestic peaks creek and dreamy walkways outside.
The interior of the spacious home has a light and cheerful ambiance with pops of color added to the living space using the vivacious yellow Togo Sofa. Color is otherwise kept to a minimum with white and gray dominating the backdrop in every room.
Lighting fixtures like the 85 Lamps Chandelier enhance the underlying industrial flavor of the home while custom décor pieces in the bedrooms and guest spaces add to the sophisticated atmosphere indoors. Color is kept to a bare minimum and the backdrop is kept as neutral as possible with edgy elegance becoming the predominant theme.
