The most appealing part of the home is obviously the stone exterior and textured walls indoors that really drive home that warm inviting Mediterranean allure. An earthen color scheme coupled with age-old oak for the ceiling beams turns this Kiev masterpiece into a dreamy relaxing getaway.
The biggest problem that plagues old buildings built several decades ago is the poorly planned additions and renovations that they go through with time making them almost untenable as cheerful modern homes.
The use of large windows and sliding doors not only brings in ample ventilation and a flood of natural light but it also visually connects one room with the other in a seamless fashion.
The kitchen which underwent a complete makeover now features white cabinets with shaker-style doors open floating wooden shelves and a ceramic tiled backsplash. An inviting dining space in white sits right next to the kitchen even as large windows bring in ample natural light to create a bright breezy ambiance.
Modern decor in neutral hues an imposing fireplace and smart lighting end up becoming the showstoppers in this smart utilitarian makeover that showcases the brilliance of adaptive reuse.
