This home is simply an architectural gem. An open planned main floor creates one heart for the home where one would spend most of their time.

This small home is absolutely captivating.
The interior of this small home has been transformed into a beautiful indoor garden terrace. Creativity is at play with the use of stones and plants in the room. The space feels like a chic outdoor cafe. A slim staircase maximizes the space inside. Blonde wood and bright windows make the small home feel expansive. We love the minimalistic scandinavian design in the room!

Another kitchen makes similar use of a mixture of woods to create a warm and eclectic kitchen.
