Home Of The Month: California Beach Cool
The dynamic composition of this attention-grabbing house along Kingmeads Road looks straight out of an architectural digest. That snazzy exterior has us stopping dead in our tracks. Just wait till you get a taste of what’s inside!
Now drop what you’re doing and read on – an amazing house tour awaits all willing to spare a few scrolls.
Enter the main living area. Enveloped in natural light, expansive windows not only give the illusion of a seamless space that melds into the outdoors, but imbues the home with a Californian beach cool. Low-slung furniture further amplifies the airy vibe going on, while the monochrome theme keeps it chic.
With two areas for dining – one featuring a long, 10-seater dining table for serious entertaining, and the other smaller dining space for more cosy, intimate gatherings – this home is the perfect setting for any type of gathering. Time to live it up with some wining and dining!
In the kitchen, a half-hacked wall has been fitted with glass for that outdoor, open-kitchen feeling. A trail of baby bamboo on the outside creates a zen atmosphere that calms the mind for a meditative cooking experience.
Further in, the entertainment room takes on a different look. The darker palette makes a cosy nest of a room. Movie marathon, anyone? We’ll be hibernating here for days. (Do you spot the horse motif running through the decor?)
The same dark wood grains run through the snug bedrooms. With built-in storage solutions in a myriad of arrangements, each of the rooms are tailored to their occupants’ lifestyle needs for optimal practicality.
Here's one of the most anticipated areas that's worth gushing over - the bathroom. Enjoy all this goodness soaking up - throw in a fizzling bath bomb and dip your toes into the luxurious bathtub with a glass in hand. They say your bathroom is a sanctuary, and it couldn’t be more true here.
Lastly, a Japanese-inspired room for you to Zen-out, or maybe strike a yoga pose. Introspect. Breathe. Escape from the hubbub and frazzle of fast-paced city living. Tell us - if you stayed here, what would you use this room for?
