Adding to the sheen of the steel façade are framed accent panels in perforated aluminum clad in bright red. The entry of the renovated home also features a tinge of red while the living area bedrooms and bathrooms showcase smart red accents. This creates a visual connection between the interior and the exterior despite the use of contrasting materials. Split into three levels the lowest floor houses a rental while the top two levels make up the owner’s duplex. The second level contains the living area kitchen dining space and home office / TV room of the duplex and the top floor houses the master suite along with additional bedrooms and bathrooms.
On the inside partitions are kept to a bare minimum as an open floor plan visually connects the kitchen the dining space and the family zone. One can see industrial-style lighting and glass partitions with dark metallic frames throughout the residence while understated contemporary décor fills each room. Lighting plays a major role in the overall ambiance of the home with natural ventilation flowing from one room to the next. Geometric tiles in the kitchen add pattern to the space while throw pillows and bedding bring color to the minimal bedroom in white.
Combining rustic simplicity with urban functionality and a hint of industrial flair this soothing home transports you into simpler times where life seems to jog forward at a more leisurely pace! Using an earthy color palette the soothing ambiance of the getaway is easily perceptible even through these beautiful images and the landscape around it adds to the distinct aura.
For those who are minimalists at heart decorating a home with both style and sophistication can be a real challenging task. Minimalism requires discipline order and an ability to keep the space as de-cluttered as possible.
Windows were kept to a bare minimum with just three large windows on the main living area offering scenic views of the mountain terrain outside. A smart air circulation system and a black corrugated steel exterior make the home even more energy-efficient.
