Tatarko tells that the renovation of their house is an ongoing project and that inspiration from Houzz and its large collection of images was a key aspect in all of it. (And we are not surprised at all!)
Well and her husband founders of design & architecture website Houzz have decided to show the world that renovations can be done without any hassles whatsoever and they have shown this is in the best possible fashion — by in Palo Alto California.
This is the right place where you may find that the neutral sober kind of interiors that too for the entire house would not be so boring and dull. The owners were keen of not having any western styles and the designers attempted to make it in the desired way.
Inspired by the natural landscape surrounding this extraordinary property designers created a breathtaking exterior design that prologues inside through the large glazed walls. The fantastic view of the mountains from the living room area varies with the change of seasons creating endless variety ensuring you will never be bored.
All these for an unbelievable $21.8 million price tag which makes it (perhaps) the most expensive one-bedroom apartment in the world. So let’s say money aren’t a problem do you think such large single bedroom houses — 4434 sq ft (that’s roughly 412 square meters) — are a disadvantage or are they really good to live in?

An immense rock wall serves as a divider separating the East from the West and also functions as a temperature stabilizer. The use of wood gives you a warm touch visually and a beauty all on its own. The folded roof gives the building a modern look that also blends into the stately mountainous terrain.
