Maison 51 is probably the kind of house that will amaze modern, practical people. At a glance it might look a little cold and plain, but if we look closer, this house actually has a very interesting design. Even though it seems to pay more attention to functionality, it also has several unique design features that make it extraordinary.
From the outside, the house is all squares and straight lines. The simplicity also applies to the inside of the house, which is minimally furnished and dominated with cool colors like grey, white, and black. The space is used very efficiently. There is almost no furniture that only stands as decoration; everything has its functions. The bedroom, for example, only contains a bed and an end table, with tall glass doors that double as windows and cupboards that double as walls or partitions.I think this arrangement is both creative and clever. Most houses rely on decorations to make them look beautiful and take a lot of space for the furniture, but this house manage to look good while also being compact.
Although the design of the house is mostly monochrome, there are also accents of bright colors like orange, yellow, and teal. These bright colors are used on smaller furniture or ornaments. For example, there is a yellow end table in the bedroom and orange table cloth in the living room. There are also box containers in cheerful colors, such as sky blue and bright green. These colors balance the monochrome walls, doors, windows, and larger furniture. With such a unique combination of colors, this house looks far warmer and friendlier.
At the back of the house are an open deck and a backyard. The wood of the deck is dark, in tone with most parts of the house. On the deck there are only two tables and several chairs, leaving enough room for various outdoor activities. The backyard makes the landscape feel fresh, since it is filled with green plants and grass. The grass and other plants are left a little untended, giving the garden a wild and natural look which is charming in its own way.
Are you someone who likes simplicity and functionality? If you are, then this kind of home designs will suit you well, because it reflects practicality, modernity, and sternness.
