There are only a handful of accommodations in the world where you can see fishes swimming past your window and Tanzania’s Manta Resort is one of these rare treasures. This remote getaway is almost like its own waterborne island with the chance to indulge in three separate experiences of the ocean: an underwater suite a sea-level deck and an elevated roof terrace that will make you feel like you’re on top of the world.
The staircase is often viewed as just a functional addition and few homeowners really pay attention to the aesthetic style it delivers. Fewer actually turn the stairway into the focal point of the sparkling modern home and let it define the ambiance of the interior. Accomplishing this with refined contemporary panache is the lovely South designed by Mitsuori Architects and this stunning abode places emphasis on a posh multi-zone family setting. The double-story terrace house was revamped and refurbished to bring in a trendier look and its sculpted timber stairs end up being the showstopper!
Large glass windows also offer spectacular views of the city while a splendid green wall becomes the star of the show in the moody dining room. Since it was designed to fit the sleek lifestyle of its single homeowner low-maintenance decor and finishing were key aspects that defined the many choices made inside the loft home.
Apart from the warm color scheme it is the use of natural stone and glass that instantly captures your attention and fabulous French doors and large windows with dark steel frames enhance this look. The fusion of a multitude of styles is evident here with custom decor additions ranging from the rustic and vintage to the industrial and modern coming together effortlessly.
A relaxing water feature in the courtyard gives it a tranquil Zen style and fabulous lighting elevates this enchanting appeal to a whole new level. On the inside a classy contemporary kitchen from Boffi a poured-in-place board form concrete fireplace and unassuming décor complement the neutral color scheme perfectly. Exquisite ergonomic and contemporary this charismatic Santa Barbara home offers the perfect escape just a few steps outside your living room!
