The gorgeous home was designed by Fabio Fantolino and apart from black and white gray and brown make an appearance in every room. The living area features a plush couch in gray that stands out thanks to the all-white backdrop black side tables and a sleek entertainment unit in wood that barely makes its presence felt.
Spanish cedar and brick give the home a warm traditional ambiance while the decor is kept minimal and unassuming. Wood is the major component that shapes the ceiling in each room the modern kitchen and the lovely wardrobes while the neutral color palette stays away from gaudy colors.
Just next to it is the small dining area and the transition from the old heritage home to the new dazzling addition seems almost seamless. Next to it is the glass box with the sitting area and both new structures overlook the lovely pool and the backyard.
Not every cottage is tiny; this one has multiple chimneys indicating no fewer than 9 fireplaces—so you can enjoy a toasty fire almost anywhere. Other features like stone walls or in this case a bridge complement stone cottages and create harmony with the landscaping in some cases meaning that minimal attention needs to be paid to gardening.
The interior of the home seems to be connected with the garden outside at every turn and the smart courtyard with a freestanding bathtub separates the public and private space while ushering in plenty of natural light. With a narrow structure the home concentrates on passive heating and cooling techniques to reduce its energy bills.
Wooden surfaces a dining table and decor bring some much needed warmth to the interior while smart lighting accentuates this visual beauty. A tranquil bedroom that borrows from the color palette of the living area and a small bathroom complete what is a truly refined and relaxing modern home.
Again interiors in stone cottages can be unexpectedly modern; this staircase brings light and style in while keeping the traditional architecture intact. Which of today’s featured cottages is your favorite? Share your thoughts by leaving a comment below…
