Poetic LivingWith this design I wrote you a poem. A poem about living a slow and beautiful life.....of finding peace and harmony.....finding the best version of you. It's a poem about the color blue, of water and earth and fire and the breeze blowing away all the troubles of the world. It's a happy place designed for a good life....of caring deeply and sharing with love and compassion! I hope when you visit this house, you'll feel like living a life worthwhile.....like living in the most beautiful poem you've ever read!
Three different living zones was joined together with corridors on the top floor, flowing from one area to the other, and different staircases was fitted inside and out to create an indoor, outdoor flow. Big windows was fitted to show off the panoramic views.
In this house you'll find white with touches of blue in every room. Blue to reflect the magnificent views of the ocean which can be seen from almost every window.
Art were chosen carefully and with a story to tell.
This is one end of the building where the garden was developed into different entertaining spaces. Please take a moment to stroll through the pictures and to enjoy all the different areas and to drink in the views.
Narrow balcony on the side of the spare bedrooms and second bathroom. To go out and find the fresh breeze on your face.....
From the top balconies out onto the garden, pool area and the magnificent ocean view.
Bespoke balcony areas was designed for the two middle wings of the house and fitted with staircases to stroll down into the garden entertainment areas.
Special planting was selected for this design to bring the softness and nature and reminds us of growth and the importance to stay in touch with nature and the earth.
Walkways between the different wings, allowing you to stroll from the one end of the building to the other.
This is what dreams are made of: wide and white and endless possibilities!
In this picture the different wings and balcony areas can be seen. This house was designed to inspire living together but also finding your own space tp breath in.
Bespoke pool with a built in seating area!
The kitchen was fitted on the side wing and with direct access to the outdoors!
Another double guest bedroom. Beautiful and designed for the comfort of the guests!
The soft greys was mixed in with the aqua blue greens to keep it calm and serene.
A painting telling a thousand stories and wanting to be a song or a poem......
Guest bathroom with double vanities, good size shower and the best view!
In the bathroom they used the deeper blue green tiles to create an almost under water feeling with great success.
This lounge is upstairs in the middle one of the three wings. It was divided into an office space on the one side and a TV lounge on the other side. In between the two spaces is the stairs leading you up and down the levels of living.
In this picture is the hallway that leads to the master suite, but which also serves as a bridge connecting two separate wings. Crossing bridges in life is always a process of exploring and discovering more and more of yourself.
Screens was fitted on the edge of the staircase. The glass screens were made to create some kind of privacy or seclusion if you want to call it that, but also stay connected, which is an important part of life.
In t his picture one can see the corner windows that was fitted in the hallway bridges to ensure the best possible views out. There was also skylights fitted in the hallways to bring in the most beautiful light in the day and the starry skies at night! Poetic!!
This is the office side of the lounge and it has a balcony with a staircase leading out and down into the garden area. Also giving access to the house for the days that one should want to receive important clients.
Bespoke desk.....and a view of the skylight. In this design, just like in real life, light and clarity and vision are all important parts to living a purposeful life, so they were mindful about that.
Office seating area....
Television area.....understated and simplistic, but also elegant and sophisticated.
This is the seating and television area in the upstairs lounge.....
The master bedroom is spacious and comfortable and was fitted with it's own television area. It also has it's own balcony and staircase leading out and down into the garden.
The bedroom has a separate dressing room.
This is the bedroom of an dreamer who are always wanting to grow and to explore new ways of being.....who knows that as long as there's a dream and a poem, there's life and possibilities!
What a vision of elegance and sophistication!
The master bathroom is inspiring with its lovely bespoke glass vanity area, unique marble for the basins and bath and the magnificent view from all the different zones.
Yes there is a vanity......marble on glass!
Soaker tub with the views that will never end! The perfect start or finish to a day: to find peace and harmony and quiet reflection.
This is the downstairs living room with build in fireplace and with direct access the the garden.
A poem about blues playing together on a surface of white......! And how pretty do they play together....like the verses of a good poem leading the mind and the emotions to new places....
bottom of the staircase leading upwards.....opening up new levels of being!
The dining room is all about reflection and of pure living.....finding the best way to honor yourself and your body.....to find clarity and to live it to the fullest.
connecting the dining room to the kitchen is the hall of the thinking man.....what he is contemplating is a secret or a mystery....or maybe just something about finding a happy place.....
There he is.....our thinking man......maybe it's a good thing to pause in front of him and trying to catch his thoughts on life and on being ever mindful!
The kitchen is where Matisse found the best spot.....to sleep and to dream!
The kitchen was kept modern and with mostly concealed storage to hide away any signs of clutter which could maybe cloud the mind....but still was decorated with some warmth and welcoming touches.
Even when cooking in the kitchen, this special view is on site to remind you that you are more than just someone who works in a kitchen.....you are special and you have potential far beyond!
And this is the end of this poem! I hope you read all the verses and that you understood and saw in it how life can be peaceful, slow and happy....poetic and tailor made for you!
