The country house is a place of refuge for those who like to rest and enjoy moments with family and friends. The projects of this type of residence merge with nature, so it is necessary to respect the surroundings so that there is harmony with the existing landscaping.
The idea for this type of house is a project that brings warmth and tranquility, being able to vary the style that goes from the rustic to a modern or industrial model. THE blue print should contain large areas - large spans of windows enhance the look of the outdoor area and offer a pleasant natural ventilation.
In the decoration, the ideal is to prioritize the simple furniture with a warm disposition. Usually, rustic materials such as wood, bricks and natural stone floors are used, in tones that contrast the environment. Make a composition with colorful rugs and pillows with foliage prints to leave the environment with a pleasant climate.
The materials of the facades can vary, the glass guarantees visibility with the external landscape and favors the entry of sun. The details of the facade can be composed of stones, woods, straw, mud and clay bricks, focusing on the natural climate.
