This time I would like to review a post written by Freshome, check my reviews below.
Elaine Cecconi is a designer of 6a Brockton House which will amaze everyone who knows the story behind it. This house which belongs to Cecconi is actually built in a narrow space between two other houses. Yet, people who come to her house will not believe that. It is because of the fact that her house looks amazingly spacious. After having a vivid look at this house, it comes to me that “A true designer can make the most of the impossible work”. Although her house is not wide, it is quite long and high so that it enables her to design spacious house in narrow space.
Another key of her work is simplicity. There is no much furniture in her house, for she carefully design the rooms based on what she needs the most. In the kitchen, for instance, there are only a white kitchen cabinet and a brown table. The kitchen and the living room are actually located in the same room as the living room. However, Cecconi cleverly put a big screen TV between the kitchen and the living room so that it looks like two rooms. By doing so, Cecconi maintain the spaciousness of the two rooms. Another innovation is locating bathroom and closet in the same room. Believe it or not, although the room is used for two functions, the bathroom has space for a bathtub, a shower, a sink, and a comfortable sofa! Most people would not deny that mixing two rooms with different function in a single room is quite a unique work.
Not only do the rooms are unique, the decoration of the house works nice as well. Using an advanced technology of lighting, Cecconi creates the same front house into three different nuances. In the daylight, she only turns on a lamp which has orange light on the left side of the house. The light of the lamp has the same color as the lamp inside the house seen through the window. It creates a synchronous color effect. When the day is getting dark, she turns on the small lamps with yellow light under two trees in front of the house. The lamps shine the trees delightfully while the inside of the house looks yellow as well. At night, the colors of the lights are changed into to brighten the night.
