The result: the dingy dark interior was transformed into a bright and beautiful setting. As is the norm these days the home has a new rear extension that flows into the backyard as the Nest Architects completely revamped the ambiance of this small family residence.
Exposed brick walls at the entrance wooden ceiling turnbuckles and beams blend in effortlessly with contemporary elements while a refined color scheme that is dominated by white and gray defines the cool cultured ambiance indoors.
While it might seem like a revamped and rejuvenated old farmhouse from the outside the residence is in fact a brand new structure that was intentionally designed to bring some old world charm indoors.
The lower level of the house contains the double-height living area along with a kitchen and dining space that showcases vibrant yellow and orange accents. The top floor houses five bedrooms with each having their own color scheme along with bathrooms and family areas.
Along with various shades of blue it is the presence of gray in the living room and the dining area that gives the home its distinctly contemporary flavor and helps it move away from the typical beach house ambiance.
Exclusivity is a big part of the design of with the designers taking special care when it comes to choosing authentic décor and finishes that give the interior a distinct yet authentic Tuscan style. Carefully selected furniture pieces were brought in from Italy Germany France and other parts of Europe to ensure that every little detail fits in with the overall narrative.
Designed by Pinheiro Martinez Arquitetura the home features a distinct nautical tinge in every room of the house as the décor and accessories add this touch of beach-inspired beauty. Model sailboats ship wheels throw pillows with a nautical motif and colors such as deep blue and vivacious red come together to create this wonderful fusion of modern and coastal.
