Nature as an inspiration source for your home

This beautiful house in Western Latvia definitely deserves a spot on our ‘houses of our dreams’ list. From the first site visit, the owners knew that nature was going to play a major role in the design of their home. They opted for a sleek look for both the exterior and the interior of the house. They were able to add a warm feel to the sleek look thanks to our wide colour range of natural wood tones. Which, as you can see, turned out to be a successful combination.

Light wood tones throughout the interior
Do you want to use wood as the main material in your interior, in a modern way? Let this house be an example! For the owners it was clear: the natural wood tones had to be the binding factor in every room and ultimately ensure unity. To achieve this, almost all furniture in the house was finished with Rubio Monocoat Oil Plus 2C, colour Smoke 5%. From the kitchen furniture to the bedroom and bathroom furniture, all the wood got a Rubio Monocoat look.

In order to respect the natural look of the wood, they wanted to make use of light sources, both natural and artificial. The wooden ceiling was an important factor to consider during this exercise. The owners wanted to create a clear contrast with the light wood colour of the furniture and decided to go for a dark wood tone. The ceiling was then treated with our Rubio Monocoat Oil Plus 2C, colour Charcoal.

Reflections and dimensions
Rubio Monocoat Hybrid Wood Protector, colour Charcoal, was used for both the façade and the terrace. Throughout the day, this dark colour creates different reflections and adds a fourth dimension to the striking façade. So there is always a certain, but always different, atmosphere when you look at the house.

We would like to thank the architects of OUTOFBOX as well as Āboltiņš AG and Platte for this fantastic project! Be inspired by the beautiful photos of Lauris Hercenbergs and you might get ideas for your next project.
