The design of the ceilings and the walls remind of the vibrant 70s or 80s. Decorations are not just the features that get emphasis here the house also fulfills the demands of all the residents. Designed by Turkish studio Yazgan Design Architecture the has employed all those elements that go well with the climate of Ankara.
That obviously is the ideal way to demonstrate how renovations can be done with proper planning and abundant imagination and they set about the project by changing the floor of the house into an all-black surface. Beautiful carpets and colorful furniture were laid in the living room to offer a vivid and playful look.
The dining area takes advantage of the wide floor to ceiling windows allowing the natural light from outside to brighten up your breakfast. The trees outside provide privacy for a large portion of the year.
Really large interiors that are luxuriously decorated welcome you inside. Apart from the one and only grand bedroom there is a large dining room as well as a gourmet kitchen. A full bath and 2 partial baths find their place inside as well.
My favorite is the kid’s bedroom which in contrast is lavishly decorated and appears like a crowded space full of colors and energy. The outdoor seating arrangement is so cool with the simplicity of the furniture and the lamp shades. Though everything here appears quite simple a lot of effort has been taken to attain the perfection. So that is a perfect example of a countryside home in Ireland. Already longing for one?
Schnieders is but not satisfied with the small size of the bathroom and the style of the kitchen. He also does not like the ceiling fans. But we feel that the fans are just alright in terms of the traditional accessories the house has been adorned with. Well he is a man who believes that even if a space is very temporary it should feel like our own otherwise we will be miserable. May be that is why he is so cynical about certain aspects of the house. We wish him and his family that their house under renovation would truly be a dream home.
