With its crisp white and green façade and casual, open-plan layout, this home located in a provincial family compound is welcoming and inviting. In choosing the design palette, the homeowners took their cue from their environment. What really adds character and drama to the house, though, are the various keepsakes found throughout, the product of many years of the family's travels to local and foreign destinations. The overall look of their home is inspired by the relaxing vibe of the great outdoors—with practicality, and a bit of personal magic thrown in, as a guiding principle.
