In my city where old country homes and log cabins are still common, it is so rare to find modern and contemporary luxury homes in residential areas. Since summer spells fun and relaxation, I think it is about time to turn these dumpy homes and cabins into dreamy summer retreat homes while retaining their old charm.
Just take a look at this infographic. Creating your very own summer haven may not be your typical dwelling, but you can create an atmosphere that evokes your simple and laid back mood with a relaxing water fountain and a gazebo while reflecting your fun, raring-for-summer attitude with an outdoor pool / hot tub. Believe me, your kids will love staying at home more during summer days and nights! Certain design elements like adding a fire pit and a gazebo help in creating a summer home that spells comfort and class. Installing an outdoor kitchen and creating shady areas to just lay back and relax also help to create a whimsy and relaxed vibe that makes the home very personal and unique.
No matter how many installations an design ideas were put in this beautiful summer home, everything seemed to have fallen into place. All these things and the different styles combined gave this haven a homey eclectic feel and its very own unique charm.
