The story presented on these pages is the house I want to begin with the garden, a small pond and forest. Because the need to create a green area at home or near a characteristic of people of different ages and professions. The love of plants is not just a hobby, but also an opportunity to get acquainted with interesting and unpredictable world of living nature. How wonderful to walk around this garden, where you can enjoy a variety of scents of woods and herbs, to admire the reflections in the water and hear the joyful singing of birds, but most importantly, here you can relax, recharge your life energy.
A large wooden veranda
The owners of the house had in mind not a mansion or a Chalet, but a very ordinary suburban cottage with lilac, Jasmine and always with a large veranda, on which they will collect guests.

Coming into the house, understand that its space is filled with a measured noise of the forest and streams of fresh air; this space exudes peace and serenity imprison peaceful, natural colors and materials. In the home environment dominated by wood. Because, as you know, the tree breathes, so the house is optimal for a man microclimate. Good heat-insulating properties of wood are favorable for the creation of a comfortable environment in the home. Walls, changing shades from svetlorozovogo to pustozyorovo depending on the lighting, large rectangles of Windows, light niches, no walls between the kitchen and large dining room – it looks like an open space that can be enjoyed with complete comfort. The decoration of the facade perfectly combines the natural beauty of wood, the same color and texture of the walls, and inside the house.

Regular life is quite suitable large terrace, which can be a long time to contemplate the incomprehensible magic of nature.
The design solution combines extreme simplicity and thoughtful functionality. However, restraint design house has nothing to do with the refined minimalism, his captivating simplicity not binding, suggesting complete surrender. Massive leather furniture in the living room is wonderful for her. Although the skin is not a traditional attribute of a rural house, here it is completely relevant, because in a country house in the first place – practicality. Well, and what could be more practical for the skin? It all goes perfectly among themselves without disturbing communal harmony.
In a country or rustic style, the details are important, not less, than in any other. Carved or woven boxes, chests or chandeliers with fittings create a charming flavor of antiquity. In this interior look great ceramic things, especially without irrigation glaze is matte, ground, though dusty from time to time. Dry flowers, live flowers, bunches of herbs, tied with colored threads – these little things and synthesize the interior atmosphere of the country.
The second floor is a large and cosy attic, win-win option for the interior of a country house. Low sloping ceilings, window openings in them is the source of romantic inspiration.
The bedroom on the second floor looks like a bedroom in a small hunting Lodge. Form of furniture made of solid wood traditional and original at the same time. A small Cabinet by the window and a Desk made from old samples.
