I have been searching for inspiration to use for my home and the wooden details on this house helped a lot. I love natural colored wood in a home, it makes it feel alive and look extremely cozy.
This house is located in the Santa Lucia Mountains in an area of oak forests and steep meadows. The construction was provided with overhanging roofs planted with tall native grasses and solar roof. The interior has a loft appearance with vast windows and tall ceilings. The colors used for the interior decoration are rather natural – butter beige, white, natural wood, dark brown and black. The master bedroom has a great view on the forest through almost two walls of widows. Regardless of all the wood used inside and outside, its green Energy and Sustainability Honor award (received from the American Institute of Architects), this House Ocho looks rather cold, wouldn’t you say?
