Planning and design:

Keren Maimon

A house built in the 80s and recently renovated from the ground up is located on a long, narrow rectangular lot. The couple who purchased the property Contact the interior designer Keren Maimon and she, as you will immediately see, worked wonders on it. "Before the move, the family members lived in an apartment and really wanted to move to a private house that would suit their needs and include a spacious garden for the children," explains Maimon. "Although it is built on a narrow, rectangular lot because the entrance The house is located in the narrow part, the feeling is very spacious."

The original house had excellent features but it naturally aged over the years, according to Maimon.

"In some cases we used original elements that we renewed in order to fit the new design; for example, the travertine marble flooring on the entrance floor which we polished, brightened and renewed and now the floor looks homogeneous in terms of shades and blends in perfectly with the new elements. The result is modern-eclectic, rich in special furniture details and accessories that are added Character and soul to a home. As a general rule, as a designer, I believe that without them every home remains bare. I strongly recommend using accessories, but without exaggerating in order not to be drawn into the realms of kitsch. The dosage is important and if done correctly, you can use them to tell the story of the home and add chic to it and style".

As part of the comprehensive renovation, all wings were carefully treated, including the outdoor environment.

The original garden was removed and the entrance plaza that leads to the house was completely renovated.

Maimon chose shea gray stone flooring for her and replaced the entrance gate with a new modern gate made of iron in a copper shade, from which the entrance door is also made, which she styled with a unique bamboo handle that she made herself from a bamboo ladder that she dismantled.

Throughout the garden there are many bamboo elements and the handle completes the picture.

On the entrance floor of the house (which includes a spacious kitchen, living room, dining area and guest services) the original LAYOUT was preserved but Maimon refined the definition of functions by adding walls and accents.

For example, in the entrance hall, she built a partition wall between it and the living room: "Defining the functions in the space is important, and the new wall creates a resting place just before entering the public space, which is particularly spacious and very bright. I designed a wall cabinet for the wardrobe, where the electrical cabinet is also located. The front of the carpentry was painted in an oven In an off-white shade like the color of the walls of the house and I created asymmetrical geometric slits in it; a pattern that repeats itself in different areas of the floor, for example in the wall of the fireplace between the dining area and the living room. On the other side of the foyer I integrated a stylish console with a mirror above it. The same wall is used on the other side by the living room where the air conditioning systems are hidden and the sound".

The carpentry unit that Mimon planned in the living room is made of walnut wood - a material that has been used again and again in many places in the house, in different variations.

The furniture is eclectic and consists of a chaise longue made of wrought iron combined with saddle leather and a classic sofa.

Despite the size of the space, the feeling you get is warm and inviting.

In the center of the public space, the designer planned a fireplace wall that connects the living room to the dining area: "It's a very present wall and you can see it from every corner on this floor. In the plaster wall, we planted iron profiles in an asymmetrical pattern, identical to the example in the wardrobe closet at the entrance. The disconnections created by the profiles in the wall give it a modern and unique look." , she explains.

The dining area was designed with perfect symmetry and includes a pair of ornamental bookcases made of iron that are separated from each other, on their shelves carefully placed books and beautiful utensils.

The dining table in the center is made of an oak plate and iron legs, around which 10 diners can sit.

Above it is a modern lighting fixture that anchors the corner.

"I was looking for a lamp that was made as one unit, but would hug the table. The geometric motif that is present in the entrance and the wall of the fireplace is also evident in her case," explains the designer.

The kitchen in this house is particularly large, which allows the financing to divide it into two areas: in one, a large and dignified family dining area, behind it a large utility cabinet in a graphite shade that incorporates a VRF air conditioning unit, a wine refrigerator and plenty of storage.

On the other side of the space is the kitchen itself.

Maimon chose to paint the facades white and the surfaces were coated with Dekton.

In it, she created an open coffee corner that breaks the sealed mass and has oak shelves.

The front of the large island in the center of the canopy is walnut veneer: "Since the travertine stone has a slightly brown tint, some of the accessories I chose to work with in the house, and in particular in the kitchen, are shades of orange that create a splash of color and enliven the space. The bar stools are upholstered in fabric in an orange shade to which I matched two stools made of Polymeric, without a support so that they do not block the intimate balcony outside, which is used by family members for breakfast, among other things."

The designer lined the exit from the kitchen to the garden with an iron-like stone in an amorphous pattern with a contour of pebbles: "Under the large pergola we combined a seating area and a dining area that overlook the pool and there is also a BBQ station nearby. The colors I chose for the outdoor environment are pastel - soft shades of green and gray that on the one hand keep Classic and on the other hand allows you to create a light and contemporary look."

The guest services are located on the entrance floor level and they have also been completely renovated.

The carpentry unit designed by the designer is made of walnut veneer strips and is reminiscent of the one in the living room.

On top of it, she combined a brown dekton surface that blends well with the wooden facades.

For the wall she chose a golden covering.

She covered the sink wall with a mirror, which doubles the size of the space and the faucets emerge from it.

The two upper levels of the house were redesigned.

On the bedroom floor, Mimon planned a master bedroom for the parents and three rooms for the children.

One of the children got his own bathroom, while the other two children share a common bathroom.

On the upper level, a guest room with an attached bathroom was planned, which is normally used as a study.

The children's bedrooms were designed in a young and light style and at the same time they also connect to the eclectic concept of the house.

In the bathroom designed for two of them, Maimon used terrazzo tiles in shades of gray and white.

In the entrance hall of the parents' master, a mirror-covered shoe cabinet was designed that doubles the size of the space.

In the center of the sleeping area is a large bed and a TV on a column.

"The couple didn't want a closet, so I split the storage in two," explains the designer.

"I designed for them a closet in front of the bed and another closet that was built perpendicular to the bed and is also the transition to the bathroom. To maintain the height of the ceiling, I chose to avoid low ceilings and created cornices that simulate disconnections in the plaster. Like the entire floor, the master bedroom is covered with a walnut parquet floor. The shell is light, but here too I combined Touches of color, especially in textiles, in shades of gray, brown and orange, which go well with the walnut floor."

"The light, neutral color is also preserved in the couple's bathroom, where we used extra-large pressed porcelain tiles that create a homogeneous and continuous look. The couple enjoys a large and spacious shower with a large niche. The fronts of the bath cabinet are also made of walnut."
