Cesme House designed by Escape From Sofa team, is a three-bedroom summer residence in Cesme, a popular resort of Izmir, Turkey.
This 200sqm. recently renovated house has 3 floors with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, a living and dining area and a kitchen. Inspired by the Aegean geography and climate, the designers have combined a modernist sensibility of light, soft neutral colours and simple, clean lines with a colonial style using natural materials and indoor plants. The result is warm, cosy and welcoming house created in harmony with sophistication, tranquillity and elegance. The interior décor is a combination of contemporary Scandinavian and South American design with a hint of exotic. All furniture is custom designed and manufactured inspired by mid-century modernism and colonial interiors. The use of natural materials such as wood, brass and marble provide textural variation and a subtle sense of luxury.
On the ground floor, a double-height open-plan space accommodates the kitchen and dining area and an octagonal living leading to the garden. The glass openings minimize distinction between the outside and the interior, letting the generous sunset in the house. Meanwhile, the front side porch provides a shaded spot to enjoy the morning summer breeze. On the upper floor, the master bedroom overlooks the living room through wooden shutters permitting more daylight to flow in as well as forming an airy, playful ambiance. The interior design follows in the other bedrooms and is enhanced with lush potted plants and tribal artworks.
