A very current country house

A very current country house

Wooden beams and pillars, a gable roof, a beautiful porch ... When the owners of this house saw it for the first time, they were taken by it. They had been looking for a house in years Santander where the family - a couple with four children - will enjoy their vacations. Until then they had only seen dilapidated buildings and at a very high price. But this, rehabilitated by Jimmy Suarez de PugaIt was perfect.

This fact occurred when Jimmy Suarez de Puga joined an old house and a bar to make this house with three heights. Outside, he fully respected the architectural typology of the area, with the white painted facade and woodwork in green tone. The windows, with cuarterones, designed them slightly wider than the typical ones to facilitate the entrance of natural light. Inside, wood became the undisputed protagonist: floors in clear finish together with ceilings and pillars painted in white soften the environments without masking the natural charm of knots and veins.

The rustic architecture was soon personalized with a unique decoration. Pieces rescued in chamarileros and recovered by specialists as well as family members They began to fill the interior with life. With a mix of vintage and country styles, the furniture was combined with warm textures whose single vision - fluffy blankets, long-haired carpets and wool cushions - promises happy days, stories by the fire and children's laughter in the garden.

- Bring out the structural elements, such as beams and wooden pillars, and leave them in sight so that, in addition to their architectural mission, they contribute a plus to the decoration.
- Introduce furniture of own design, made by family members or close to it, which become unique pieces not only for their design, but also for their emotional value.
