Beauty Made In Stone
This whitewashed stucco farmhouse villa named D & C Villa, incorporates the earthiness of nature with modernistic trends. With strong hands and amazing craftsmanship, this stunning edifice uses techniques from long ago encrusted with deep architectural roots of the island.
Beaming with charm and originality, this well-built villa has carved various spaces each with their own unique ambiance, yet effulgent with an indistinguishable theme. The spaces are divided up with private entrances starting with a living room with an extended space, bedrooms, en suite bath, a spacious deck, exterior kitchen, luscious gardens, and a large pool and patio.
The farmhouse structure is a great protector during various types of climate as well. It’s structurally beautiful, yet practical and designed with a fortissimo of passion and respect for the region’s culture.
The exterior design of the edifice flows right into the interior. There’s no differentiation except for furnishings and various lighting. The exterior views are striking and works beautifully with the composition of the entire home.
The living room area has a cave type ambiance. It’s a mixture of natural, hard surfaces with soft comforts to create balance and homeliness. The neutral tones quietly merge and maintain the overall serene appeal throughout the dwelling.
The space leading to the living room area awards grand dining experiences and infuses simple accents like the unique wall art. The space requires little enhancement as the walls speak for themselves. Within their own secretiveness they have a life of their own. In fact, throughout the dwelling the walls are the main feature, somewhat like a blank canvas that is modest, yet axiomatic.
Small enclaves like the area just off the dining space decorated with soft seating, show an amazing attention to detail. It’s surprisingly imaginative. There are various nooks-and-crannies throughout the farmhouse that make it incomparable.
The sparsely decorative theme continues into a broad foyer with aureate hardwood floors and a dark wood work desk and door. The natural light beautifully illuminates the space.
The kitchen area is sparse yet functional. The elongated bricks that trim the kitchen counter-top are magical. There’s nothing more required except what is needed for cooking and keeping produce fresh. The sconce lighting adds the perfect illumination while not interfering with the natural light. The soft colors add a fanciful dimension while the cozy sitting area completes the vision.
The bedrooms are very much like the remainder of the dwelling. Comfort with minimal décor. The bare necessities exudes a feeling of calm and tranquility. It’s beautifully warm yet gelid. It’s comforting, yet distant. The bathroom flows into the same genre with simple fixtures and sui generis highlights. A home with such interesting contrasts is a dynamic display of genuine sincerity to home decor in the fickle world of interior design.
