From Margaret on November 3rd, 2010 in General Remodel
Nothing speaks to idyllic simplicity and calm like the architectural white-sands look of this private Tinos house designed by Greek Zege Architects. Owned and designed by Marilyn Katsaris, this residence has us dreaming of all things Greek.
The most immediately striking element of this dwelling is its natural plaster walls creating curved white forms throughout, balance by exposed stone and wood beams. Natural plaster is a material grabbing attention in the building industry—find out what it would cost to remodel your own home in dreamy (and safely non-toxic!) elements here.
The whole structure is open and flowing, creating a pleasantly rudimentary boundary between the outdoors and indoors. The aesthetic creates the essence of freedom and uncomplicated joy.
The white plaster walls provide a sturdy and simple palette for the details throughout that individualize this dwelling: the 1930’s mirrors, the marble around the fireplace, and the more delicate details in furniture and décor throughout.
Overall design concepts both calm and intrigue, and make the visitor—even a virtual one—never want to leave.
