The concrete box of a house looks so stylish under the blue sky and surrounded by a beautiful green lawn. Sleek wooden lines add warmth and homeliness to the stark structure.
The sliding glass doors add oodles of modernism and trendiness to the house. The sleek wooden steps look inviting as well. The rough finishing of the exterior walls exudes an industrial chic appeal.
A sleek steel frame holds the sliding glass doors that take you inside the house. The bold stripes on the living space sofa hint at the playfulness of the interiors.
The sleek and stylish lounger in the lawn is crafted from wooden slats and concrete, and is perfect for relaxing with a book or sunbathing. A couple of quirky tables lend to the fun look here. The sleek windows allow sunlight to reach the insides without hindering privacy.
To make the most of the available space, the house follows an open plan layout by integrating the living, dining and kitchen in a linear fashion. The effect is warm, airy, and expansive.
The unusual tripod lamp in the living area makes a creative style statement and glows mysteriously after sunset. The coffee table is extremely minimal.
A glass table with a single wooden base is attached with the kitchen countertop to serve as the dining nook. Stylish wooden chairs with black seats accompany it for cosy seating.
The kitchen is a very contemporary and neat affair, with sleek and smooth cabinets and smartly accommodated modern appliances. Floating glass shelves offer more storage room in the corner as well.
The kitchen wall is beautifully clad in patterned tiles which add a decorative look to the space. Bright yellow cabinets make the kitchen look lively and cheerful, while the sleek windows offer a sweeping view of the outdoors.
This black and white bedroom with its plush bed looks inviting and stylish. The study desk on the left comes with drawers and wall-mounted shelves for storage, while mirrored doors for the closet lend the illusion of extra space.
Beige stone tiles and minimalist fixtures make this bathroom very trendy and comfortable. Sleek niches help in organising toiletries, while glass doors for the shower enclosure add to the style quotient.
After sunset, interior and exterior lights come together to accentuate the beautiful features of the house. You can also easily see how neat and sensible the layout is, with areas merged and separated with panache.
