A limited colour and material palette certainly doesn't restrict the style of this family home in Israel. Whites, greys and black play against bleached wood, concrete and interestingly a statement bamboo staircase. Love the double height public areas with light pouring in and the patio extending to the pool area. A beautiful home for four by Kfar Vitkin, Israel based Neuman Hayner Architects.
"A beautiful home is the result of considering the environment and the project as one, along with the interface between interior design and architecture."
Perched like a rocky outcrop above the valley this house by Vitale Design with views forever through its walls of glass feels like it should be there, that it is part of the landscape. Monumental and cave like yet open to the surrounding bush with the slide of a wall panel or window.
Why am I so attracted to old fashioned English kitchens? No bells, no whistles, appropriate to the age of the building and beautiful. I'm sure someone will ask where is the fridge and the oven and what about more storage. Perhaps they are on the other side of the room out of camera shot, perhaps not. Perhaps I'm just in love with the romance of these types of kitchens and am ignoring the practicality of everyday life with a family to feed but I don't seem to need a steam oven and a dishwasher, a cappuccino machine or a freezer drawer and drawers and drawers of gadgets.
