The best of both worlds

Posted on Tue, 6 Sep 2011 by KiM

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)

Thanks so much cabbagerose!

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!

LightDot says:

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!
