clean and simple lines in a charming environment

Usually simple things are more appreciated, no matter it is a simple way of regarding a certain situation or a simple object. If we refer to Villa Horatiuslaan, then we can talk about simplicity at high levels and good taste. Located in Utrecht, Netherlands, it was designed by the Dutch Sluijmer & Van Leeuwen Architects. A few words are enough to sum up the entire characterization of this house in an appropriate manner; these words would be clean and simple lines in a charming environment.

The building was divided into two floors, each room having wide glass windows, which provide a great view over the surrounding landscape, but also balconies and a special place for the relaxing moments at the end of a day. The interior keeps the same air of simplicity that makes you feel welcome; the open space of the living room fits perfectly in the pattern.

The blue chairs and the brown table are the expression of simplicity, while the kitchen, which can be seen from the entrance provides the perfect place for the specific household activities, having everything you might think of in the most appropriate atmosphere. The surrounding area completes the entire space with a dream corner, where you can relax in the sun or spend your time with your friends under the trees. If we have the loved ones close and a home in which we feel cozy, we see things quite different, from a better perspective.  (alina)
