but as usual, i hate the pharmaceutical/sterile/medically clean stark white walls… and it’s not just in a few rooms, the kitchen has it, the bookshelves are like that, the bedroom is like that.. such a shame that it’s so white on white on white. the wood accents are amazing, yet get lost against such painfully white walls.
Not to mention, the fact that i’m from Quebec. I can’t imagine being inside that white house looking out on a cold winter day and seeing all the white snow covering everything!
The polished concrete has a nice warmth and compliments the timber in the house. And there is just enough balance of dark finishes to balance out the white walls. In fact the interior finishes mirror the exterior landscape beautifully.
But I think the beauty of this house is the perfect positioning of windows – the way the light and shadows are created in this house is magic.
