This is my style of house, designed and built in Woodside California it doesn’t take much imagination to see something similar nestled on a 10 acre block in rural New Zealand.
What appeals to me is the smart and practical design. I love the way they have used the colours and the different types of cladding. The roof line is simple and clean. The windows are large and inviting giving clear vision to the outdoors. The front door is unassuming and offers an almost discreet access point into this home.
I have include a fun QUIZ I found which I though was interesting. It is based on finding what your style of house is, whilst completing this I found the questions were a bit random but the result was very accurate.
Quite often a lot can be said about your home, it can reveal a lot about you. Are you well travelled? creative? adventurous? Your personality and lifestyle can be viewed all over your walls. Have you ever considered what story your home tells about you?
If you don’t think your house represents you in the right way never fear, you can always re-write the story. This is where working with professionals and designing your own home can give you something that is exactly you. Finally you can have that big red front door you have always wanted, or the dedicated toy/media room, you can even include the 3 high bunk bed (built in) with a secret man hole to the play room in the roof. (I have seen this with my own eyes and it was an absolute crowd pleaser with the kids)
Next time you visit friends or family take a look around and see what their story is saying.
