The exterior walls on this classically styled American home tells one story. Beyond the front door, however, a surprisingly different world awaits. Almost entirely white, the furnishing, décor and accents appear in an undoubtedly sparse manner. Everything has a permanent place, even if there is plenty of room to house it somewhere else. Staunch, deliberate and utilitarian, something as simple as a throw rug would appear out of place. Each wide, open space has been treated as if every inch was precious. Winding staircases and oddly drawn angles shape the walls and ceilings. For each room that appears to have been minimally designed, there is a unique element that takes it from ordinary to exquisite. Pairing white with light in the proper proportions and the right space are the principles of modern minimalism. Designed by Ambuske Architects.
