With large glass windows that bring ample sunlight during winter months and a system of shades that can easily switch between privacy and unabated views this four-bedroom family farmhouse proves to be incredibly adaptable.
Giving an old home in a cheerful light-infused and modern revamp Heidi Caillier Design altered the ambiance and the style of this charming Seattle home. As with most modern homes the backdrop is kept strictly neutral with white painting a picture of refinement and serenity.
It is the lower level that holds the open plan living area in white along with the modern kitchen and a dashing dining space. A woodsy dining table and matching benches break the visual monotony here with natural light creating a cheerful setting.
It is the wooden balcony and the stained cedar-clad walls on the upper level that give a certain amount of contrast to an otherwise monochromatic street façade. Keeping out noise and unnecessary intrusions the basement home office towards the south corner of the house lets the homeowners work in peace.
We are often boxed in by traditional approach to design and this often means the same template for a contemporary home is repeated all over the globe without considering the specific needs of each site.
