Caroline.ruszkiewicz is the winner of the April Homebyme project of the month contest! Her winning project is AFRIQUE DU SUD MAISON RÉGIS. That puts it in a subtropical part of the world where I bet the pool and patio get a lot of use. Huge windows let it soak up the sunshine and it certainly is a home that encourages entertainment for family and friends alike! Take a look around and you’ll see what I mean.
You’re greeted by an inviting entry way lined with luscious plants. The intriguing vertical slit window is echoed by the sidelight by the front door.
Tall, narrow openings also allow a glimpse of the pool and patio. In contrast, the three wide windows give a wide open and welcoming look.
A plan view reveals the whole layout. We’ll go inside at the yellow arrow.
Immediately we find ourselves in the cool, sleek kitchen with a view of the whole interior.
The kitchen, dining room and living room are all in one long open space where everyone can mix and mingle.
The dining area benefits from extra light and interest provided by the narrow window.
Elegance is the key theme for the living room.
Luxurious fabrics and patterns contribute to feeling pampered and comfortable.
Functions are playfully mixed around in the patio area. There is room in the shade to relax and talk while the dining area is closer to the pool and row of lounge chairs.
Tucked away on the right and just beyond the big palm tree is the guest room.
It’s a big, bright room with lots of space to work or play.
A checkered tile floor and semi-wall help the bathroom to pop.
Let’s head up the stairs (yellow arrow) to see what we find on the next floor.
The master suite takes up the lion’s share of space and has the best views too.
Giant windows on two sides complement the graceful neutral tones and let the colors in the painting really stand out.
Even more checkered tiles add to the fun mood of the master bath.
Double doors are a great touch that make the room feel grand as you enter to relax or party all night!
All the bedrooms are large, nicely furnished and have their own bathrooms.
And they all have great views!
