The base shade of the walls and ceilings are off-white which enhances the already existing serene feeling. Arranged beautifully the living area is enticing with the shelves photo frames as well as the book shelf finding the perfect slots. Kitchen is quite big and is adorned with modest decorations.
Belgian studio Cocoon Architecten started from an existing farmhouse in Genk Belgium and constructed a modern oasis of comfort prepared to take on a new lifestyle. The Framework House now displays the existing building and an additional black volume facing the street.
In contrast the kitchen very simple and the main aim has been to make it more functional. The designer has succeeded in that. Like Andrews’ other projects vintage pendants light fixtures vases and the like are used aplenty here too. In short what you get to see is an amalgamation of all styles and periods. It has won the 2012 CH+D Award winner for Residential Interior Design. The house stands on 3000 sq ft of space.
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 interior is awe-inspiring. A relatively larger courtyard in the exact middle complements the whole design. Here the actual ground is maintained as such along with the trees. The pillars in black are another spectacular feature. Following a style that is quite simple and inviting the house uses white as the basic hue while off white and cream add support.
One major highlight is the entrance hallway with a 200-pair shoes storage unit which looks absolutely splendid. Nonetheless the other storage shelves and wardrobes are quite admirable too. The terrace of the building is inspired by Parisian style.
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?
