Home Visit I – The Home Of Adrienne

I am so so excited and so so happy to share this home with you. Firstly, because it’s in my home country and secondly because I made the photo shoot. My first interior shoot actually.
It is the family home of my very good friend Adrienne, who is nearly as much into Scandinavian chic as I am (on my side, though, it is called OBSESSION).

It is a modern house of a family of four in Nagykovácsi, built in 1998, but it has undergone a serious renovation both inside and out in 2015. With respect to architecture, the house is a typical example of suburban dwellings outside of the metropolitan area of Budapest. Quiet neighbourhood, a garden of a reasonable size and a huge plus: hiking trails within arm’s reach. This small town is at the boundary of a nature reserve.

Adrienne is fond of designer pieces, has an exquisite taste and together with her friend Andrea, an interior designer, they changed the rustic style and also a little cluttered layout of the interior into a spacious, very elegant, yet reserved and welcoming family home.

Several pieces of furniture and lighting solutions have been sourced from Ambiente Direct and found their perfect place in this light-flooded home. Let’s take the tour.

The kitchen is one of Adrienne’s favourite spots and the sleek cabinets are perfectly suitable for all the essentials a family of four might need in their everyday life. Note the beautiful ceramic tiles on the wall.

The dinner table is made of solid wood and can seat a party of eight people. Other elements of the dining space are the long and cozy bench and the stylish dining chairs designed by Philippe Starck. We had a lovely coffee and a nice chat.

Grey hues and mustard are a very lucky combination.

The grey Philippe Starck Masters bar stools are lined up in a nice orderly fashion.

Note the interesting texture of the wall tiles.

Altogether they form an uneven surface as a playful contrast to the smooth, dark grey worktop.

The dining area includes two stunning pendants designed by British industrial designer Benjamin Hubert.

Another fine piece, this time in the reading corner: the Uncle Jim armchair made of polycarbonate – design also by Philippe Starck.

FLOS IC Table Lamp – 2014 design Michael Anastassiades.

The iconic 1959 WOODS wallpaper (design Michael Clark) adds a little Nordic birch forest vibe to the master bedroom. And not just the bedroom, as you could see further up.
