The best of both worlds

One minute I love modern...and the next minute I love rustic. Every now and then I come across a home that has both, but this home is pretty much the extreme of what is modern and rustic. It is located in Jaffa, Tel Aviv and from what Google translator told me, it is at least a century old and has been restored and modernized. I am taken with the juxtaposition of the stone arches with the polished concrete floors and sleek cabinetry and furnishings. (via Mimdap)

It´s the same for me. At the end of the day, I like it all, as far as it has that something. No matter what style it belongs, if it has it... style.

Oh yes - just gorgeous! With views like that, minimal is definitely best!
Does anyone happen to recognise where the rug is from? I'm looking for something just like that for my space...

So... I'm alone in thinking that it doesn't work. That's okay, I'm used to it! At least it doesn't feel like a desecration - more like a photographic double-exposure.

Gorgeous!! Love!

It doesn't work for me at all.

Great space, great light. Modern minimalist approach is a good design choice but the execution lacks imagination and I find most of the spaces dysfunctional.

In a nutshell, great architecture, terrible interior design.

I love the stone walls, it feels like a light-filled cave :)

I'm with Oregonbird, seems like spaces are very contrived, not a livable home.

Amazing place. Just amazing.

S-t-u-n-n-I-n-G...... No plants in sight. Bare... Raw.. Yet it works!

indeed truly amazing, and every home needs a heart, it reflects the innermost, so I whish the owners to have that peace if heart.
Peace be with you!
