Next we see another amazing Seattle property from Vandeventer + Carlander Architects. Highlights include frosted glass windows and a rooftop deck where waterfront viewing is stylish and serene.
In fact the modern floating home can be quite a showpiece–contemporary in style with sleek flourishes yet somehow cozy at the same time. It’s interesting how many of these homes are more modern than nautical when it comes to decor. And there’s nothing like watching boats glide over the water from the comfort of your couch!
Furniture textiles and ceramics were created by Dutch designers such as Hella Jongerius and Studio Job. An elongated table and artistic pendant lighting grace the dining area of this vacation rental which makes group dining a chic reality:
The dwelling features a stone courtyard with a natural spring hot tub the perfect place to enjoy the breathtaking view in comfort and style: The levels of the home’s interior are arranged like nesting concrete boxes. On the first floor is the living room kitchen and a bedroom that pulls double duty as a library. Dutch designer Thomas Eyck put his touch on the interiors.
The interiors have been arranged so as to ensure that no effort is pared in bringing out the very best and at times one can even accuse the designer of having tried a bit too hard. The display tends to deviate from the modern trend which professes uncluttered spaces with ergonomic design and an inherent sense of minimalism. Dark hues of brown and yellow have been employed extensively while the white backdrop offers a much needed variation.
