Let's take a look.
From the outside, we can see just how beautiful this home is with its contemporary flat roof that merges with a more traditional gable roof.
Already, we can see there's an abundance of glass throughout the facade. This allows natural light to flow into the home and it gives us a little peek into the interior space.
The white facade is very simple but quirky with a gorgeous stone floor that brings a beautiful rustic look and feel to the space.
A simple little table and chairs gives the family a lovely little space where they can enjoy the sunshine, fresh air or stars while a potted tree adds a natural form of decor to the exterior of the home.
The interior of the home is simply delightful with cream screed flooring, pale walls and touches of grey and blue throughout.
The touches of blue and grey bring texture, tone and personality to the home, especially the patterned cushions and plush rug.
Here we can see how a living room, kitchen and loft all exist in the same place, creating a wonderfully interactive space.
