A great connection between past and present

When you renovate a house, you tend to keep a balance between the past and the present; to change what needs to be changed and to preserve the good old part at the same time. It is difficult to touch a perfect balance between past and present, but the house in the picture seems to be the best example that it can be done. The result is a successful combination of vigor and exquisite aesthetic, a space that preserved its local identity through many aspects. First, it was thanks to the materials used, especially thanks to the presence of wood.

The general picture is that of a house with a great personality, where green seems to reign beyond everything, both inside and outside if we look at the well-placed floral arrangements. The mixture of old and new pieces is perfect to create a warm and comfortable atmosphere and if we think about the fact that the owner is the fashion designer Jorge Vazquez, we will not be surprised to see that the details make the difference one more time.

The choice of tapestries, rugs, curtains, fabrics and plaids is certainly the result of a well-studied combination of colors, patterns and textures. The 300 years old stone house is the best example of the link between past and present and it seems to breathe this in all its corners.{found on nuevo-estilo}.
