I am reviewing a nice post by Freshome here, take a look.
I am sure that all of us have been familiar with this proverb: “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” This is what I am going to say about the residence constructed by architect Frazer Crane during the 1970s in Wilmslow, Cheshire. Located above the land of peace and serenity, this grey house may look ordinary at the first place due to its monotonous color and “regular” shape. When we step inside, however, what we see will be the vice versa. Despite the modestly-designed façade, the house’s inner part is surprisingly gorgeous as it is beautified with the touch of modernity in terms of interior design, ornaments, and furniture.
The family room is designed as an opened space connected to the upper floor. This aims to create imaginary boundaries between the upper and lower level and makes the room look bigger, too. There is also a huge glass windows opening up the room to the outdoor scenery which can be enjoyed by sitting on the chairs put just before the large window. The presence of a round grey carpet fitted under the white square table supports the image of modernity, showing that the floor covering produced nowadays is not always four-sided. Works of arts are placed in many parts of the residence and building up the image of everlasting classiness. For those who are fond of reading, the comfy single sofa on the second floor near the glass window could be the best corner in which people can be seated for hours.
As the white spiral staircase linking the family room and the room upstairs is exclusively designed, it stays adorable no matter how small it is. I especially admire the bedroom which directly connected to the garden through—again—a large glass window. All bathrooms and bedrooms are located in the upper level to distinguish between shared space for daily activities and private space for taking a rest and having me-time. Last but not least, trees surrounding a large garden at the back of the house facilitate personal space for the residents. So, has it been fascinating enough as a dream house for you?
