The renovation is already noticeable at the entrance to the house.

The flooring of the outside stairs was replaced, a thin elastic slate stone was put on the outside wall and creates a feeling that you are entering a luxurious, modern and impressive house.

The color of the wide front door was matched to the wall covering and a pleasant sitting area was placed next to it.

The public space consists of a living room, kitchen, dining area and guest services.

The designer doubled the area of ​​the kitchen and created a functional and elegant space in graphite gray color with touches of walnut wood.

In the center of the kitchen is an island with a large work surface and low seating around it, so that it will be convenient for the couple's grandchildren who often visit on Saturdays and eat around it.

To create maximum functionality, the kitchen is equipped with induction and gas stoves, three large integral refrigerators and a hot and cold water system under the sink.

Another important space in the renovation was the living room, where family members and also famous and high-profile guests regularly stay.

"It was important to me to create a respectable and impressive TV wall that would also combine storage spaces so that a clean and orderly appearance would be created. We created a wall with a 'barcode' front - an asymmetric stripe pattern combined with black brass stripes and next to it a showcase for drinks. In the center of the living room is a large and impressive bright blue sofa With a lot of seating, combined with 'Papita' armchairs," explains Wax.

The dining room table chosen is also particularly large and can accommodate a large number of diners around it.

In front of it, a power wall was designed identical to the TV wall in the living room, continuing the design concept, and to soften and warm the atmosphere a little, transparent white curtains were chosen.

The guest toilets were also renovated from the ground up and covered up to the ceiling in the same flooring chosen for the entire entrance floor - in a shade of gray with pink touches.

To complete the look, a pink sink was placed on a light wash basin.

The closet wall that divided the suite's space before the renovation was removed to create one open and spacious space, and in its place were placed two parallel closets with white matte glass fronts combined with brass-colored partitions that create a rich and unique look.

And to get a real treat at the end of the day, all the couple needs to do is enter the bathroom that was renovated inspired by a hotel bathroom and in which, among other things, a gold toilet was installed.

The bathroom is a kind of cube, one wall of which is actually another closet.

Another wall has been replaced with glass which can be hidden by moving the curtain.

"To give a luxurious look of a hotel, we broke a wall and replaced it with a glass wall. The bathroom is completely covered with the same dark-colored tile as a continuation of the design line of the house. I chose golden bronze faucets that complete the luxurious look and give the feeling that it's a boutique hotel bathroom," describes the designer.
