A spacious and cosy private home in the Netherlands, a country with a distinctly cool climate. Mindful of the country’s never-too-hot temperatures, the architects and designers who oversaw the project opted for materials that evoke the warmth of living and the natural freshness of the outdoors. Two different, but complementary materials – wood and stone – were chosen for these spaces.
The wood-effect ceramic in the bedroom area pairs well with the natural material used for the sloping ceiling with exposed beams. The stone effect, evoking a feeling of freshness, is featured on the floors and various wall coverings in the living room and bathroom. The overall visual impact is natural and inviting. The space does not contain any bright or artificial colours, ensuring a totally relaxed and natural feeling from the first glance. The owners are completely immersed in natural light from the large windows that are also featured on the roof. This lighting is also diffused on the charming walkway with wood-effect flooring that joins the two areas on the second level of the flat.
