Today I wanted to review another freshome post.
This one is a beautiful little home in the small village of Bohumilec, in the Pardubice region, Czech Republic, and it was designed by Mimosa Architekti. Standing by a lake surrounded by weeping willows, this mesmerizing house looks like something out of a fairytale.
The exterior of the house is probably its strongest aspect. It is shaped like a simple traditional house: a rectangular block with triangular roof, but the faded wood surface of the exterior adds a special charm to an otherwise ordinary structure. This rustic style allows the house to blend seamlessly with its natural environment.The looks of the house when put in its fantastic surrounding makes such a dreamy picture.
The lake and the lush vegetation is not the only natural thing that this house can take benefits from. There is also an expansive grass field around the house, where children are free to run around. There is even a little playground consisting of swings and a slide. One side of the house that is by the lake has a strip of wooden deck that leads to a terrace in a recessed space of the house. A sheltered garage stands on another side.
Unlike other houses that tend to put expansive glass windows in order to make the most out of their natural surroundings, this house chooses to preserve its traditional and rustic style by putting reasonably sized windows, though it does have a large entrance made of sliding glass panels. There are quite some glass panels in the ground floor of the house, actually, but not too much to spoil itsnatural rustic charm. The upper floor has only long and narrow strips of sliding glass windows.
The inside of the house looks more modern than the exterior. The walls are painted white, and the floor is covered with the lightest shade of wood, creating a very clean, bright, and airy feel. Since there are little kids in the house, several of the furniture items use bright colors like blue or red, adding a cheerful and refreshing touch to the stark dominant color. All in all, this house is really almost perfect, looking dreamy and beautiful from the outside and comfortable on the inside.
