Designed by Selina van der Geest, the beautiful private residence stands out visually thanks to its dark exterior, while the interior is draped in a more neutral color palette. The picturesque landscape around the home adds to its classic appeal, and the lovely use of wood and the pitched roof attempt to bring old world charm to this stunning home. On the inside, the decor cleverly combines modern comfort with a distinct vintage style, and the use of natural materials and diverse textures accentuates this sense of relaxed gracefulness.
