This couple, being new to an empty nest, desired to build a home that would support what they enjoy the most: entertaining friends and family in a relaxed elegant environment. With that in mind extra square footage was allotted in the kitchen, family and outdoor terraces. Contrastingly, the living room was transformed into an intimate lounge complete with a wine cellar embedded into the staircase and cozy fireplace. The master suite was also a focus of “sacred” extra space. Transitional furnishings blended with modernity creates a fresh effect yet exudes a warmth to compliment the homeowners’ energy of comfort and love.
