Delightfully-renovated Somerset West home

This beautiful residence is located in Somerset West, Western Cape. It’s a lovely home and it has a simple but charming design. It features a flat roof and it resembles a box with an exposed brick exterior. The house has been renovated in June 2010. It was a project led by Evi and Jochem Elsner who managed to transform the house into one of the most charming homes there are.

The house features a strong Nordic influences and it has many authentic details. It’s also a very well balanced structure. The exterior makes it seem humble while the interior looks very chic and stylish. It’s a combination between subtle and contrasting styles and the result is this unpretentious and yet elegant and charming design. The designers used a variety of natural materials to preserve the same authentic feel that house originally had.

The renovation brought with it a multitude of elegant textures and colors. Most of them are neutral and classical with a hint of vintage. The designers wanted to preserve the original charm of the house but they also wanted to avoid creating a replica of a design that lacks imagination. For that, they analyzed the history of the house and came up with their own version of the design. They made the house seem brighter and they did that by lifting the ceiling and the roof. They managed to create a chic Nordic décor for the interior where the atmosphere is serene and pleasant.{found on rosesandrustblogger}.
