This is a design made for a client to show her Oriental inspired guest suite at the end of the courtyard garden. The main focus on the house was in the guest suite and the living/dining/ kitchen area that was created for the use of the guests. They worked with a dark and more traditional Chinese palette and style with the dark ebony walls and floors. An with it the touches of Red which is so traditional a good luck color! The neutrals was also highlighted with blue tones and the use of a rich gold!
The house was planned with a courtyard which connected the guest suite with the main house. The spectacular courtyard garden is one of the main attractions of guests coming back to this establishment. In the aerial picture the two interior doors was blown up to the sky😒! 🤷♀️🤦♀️. Not planned!
