When designing a house, you cannot just think of the indoors; the outdoors is just as important for the overall impression of it.
In my earlier posts I wrote about my passion for contrast. There are so many different ways of defining contrast – contrast in colors, styles, textures, materials, elements, etc. So it’s all about getting right balance. If you use to much of lets say a color, then it might over power the other elements in the area/space.
For our house in Spain we choose white stones in the front garden, to give the house a cleaner look. Also the white stones creates a great contrast against the green grass.
