Architect Sunday, June 25th 2017.
One of the upstairs bathrooms is done in a neutral gray palette that is very calming and fits well with the rest of the house. The walls look like a matte concrete, and have modern cube wall sconces, which contrast with the rustic wood vanity and sliding barn door. A free-standing bathtub is the focal point of the bathroom, while rustic baskets and a ladder towel holder serve as well-matched accents.
Black is probably not a color you would choose on your own, but seeing how much it adds to a house might change your mind. It can easily take an old craftsman with good bones and make it feel updates and modern. All with a coat of paint. Who wouldn’t love to live in a yellow house? Yellow is such a happy color. Since craftsman style houses have so much trim, the white and yellow shades together will make the exterior seem so bright and fresh.
This distribution of the spaces allowed the architects to open up the ground floor to the garden. They gave this section of the house a glazed facade to the south which lets in lots of natural light and at the same time ensures a strong connection with the outdoors. As a result, the spaces feel open and spacious which was the second element the team had to focus on. Openness and a privacy and well-balanced throughout the house. At the same time, the spaces feel large and open even though they’re not particularly spacious. It’s an impression given by the overall simplicity of the decor, the lack of unnecessary furniture and embellishments and the use of white as the main color for the walls, furniture and various other features.
The Vidpusk story began in Romania ( a small country in Europe ) back in 2017 when founder and CEO Alouria Mackenzie launched a blog that would go on to become one of the most popular and successful online magazines to date focusing on interior design and architecture. Currently clocking up an impressive 3.8+ million unique monthly visitors, the site provides daily inspiration and advice to those who are seeking to improve, organise and style their homes. With an archive of 7000+ posts featuring over 90,000+ images of great interior products and architectural projects it is no wonder that Vidpusk has one of the most engaged online communities on the net.
