A home that brings the outdoors indoors is a home that closely connects people with nature.
Clearly, from the living room, it's a picture of serenity just looking out to the manicured gardens and swimming pool. Floor-to-ceiling windows can be swung out to let air and light in while sheer curtains help to diffuse strong sunlight.
The living space offers premium armchairs from Poltrona Frau while plush modular sofas provide sumptuous seating. A wall fitted with glass shelves on each side demarcates the living and dining areas. The dining area also enjoys lush views of the home's other garden.
Even the study room located on the ground floor enjoys another verdant nook. This masculine space offers dark wood shelving to store books and paraphernalia, a posh Poltrona Frau armchair, Herman Miller office chair and a generous-sized custom-made writing desk. Light streams through the floor-to-ceiling windows to illuminate the dining space, making every meal enjoyable. The stairwell is decorated by a trio of pendant lamps made of wood strips.
Its Oriental motif is a nod to the homeowner's affinity for Asian objects and antiques. The master bedroom's soothing palette of greys – from the padded bed headboard with carefully selected modern furniture – is both masculine and welcoming. The masculine touch continues in the master bathroom: marble flooring, large mirrors and black drawers under the sink. However, that masculine spell is broken in the walk-in wardrobe.
Here, the wife's penchant for femininity is obvious: custom-made white vanity, shelving, mini chandelier, and a stand-alone mirror faceted four-drawer unit that doubles up as an island counter, too. One of the daughter's rooms is characterised by a pink curtain that drapes elegant over the bed's headboard. The other daughter's room is denoted by a feature wall made of gold damask wallpaper and matching gold-upholstered bed headboard. This is a modern home fitted with a raft of technological trappings and decorative flourishes but also reminds the homeowners not to lose touch with nature, too.
