This two-story residence uses natural light and outdoor vegetation to create a fluid environment rich in ochre tones. Golden sunlight pours in from the mullioned windows that, combined with bespoke furniture and oakwood floors and ceilings, result in a cozy ambience. The quarry stone texture contrasts with the smooth finishes found along the neutral tones of the rooms. A staircase wrapped around a tree in a double-height space articulates the different levels of the house. Custom made details, such as the kitchen floor pattern, along with the curated decor, complement the warm color palette.
