Like many of the lavish residences that we have previously seen from this fabulous residence is filled with decor that is trendy and timeless. With the balanced use of rock steel wood and glass the exclusive house exudes inviting warmth.
With the orientation of the home also allowing ample ventilation to flood through there is never really a dull moment inside this sizzling beach retreat. Large sliding glass doors and glass walls further enhance the openness of each space.

Then there are others who are turning to groundbreaking designs like shipping container homes and versatile prefab metallic structures to cut back both on carbon footprint and costs. Embracing this green wave is the Main Street House by SHED Architecture & Design in.
In fact if you switched around some of the decor it may very well seem like an Asian-inspired home! With partial views of and Leschi Park the house is spread across three different levels. The basement features the entry and a bedroom and it leads to the more open levels above.
The owners of the home wanted to transform their old summer cottage which was a touch dark and dingy into a smart and stylish space that captured the essence of nostalgic summer evenings. This made the choice of a color palette inherently simple and the extensive use of white muted blue and light greens gives the retreat a subtle beachy vibe. But the designers stayed away from a more apparent nautical look by smartly placing decor and accents that created a trendy modern rustic style.
Both the bedrooms and the bathrooms have been designed to take complete advantage of the lovely views that the house offers. Each of the bedrooms is clad in diverse hues that range from a minimalist black and white to vibrant reds and bold greens. The accompanying bathrooms also embrace a similar color scheme. With a refreshing pool an expansive deck and comfy furnishings completing the home functionalism precedes form at the Serengeti House.
