Immaculate Vacation Home: Les Pradelles in Knokke, Belgium, by Dennis T’Jampens
Off the coast of Belgium, the Les Pradelles project by Dennis T’Jampens is an exercise in minimalism and complementary hues. Fairly new to entrepreneurial design, his firm packs a huge punch with its open layouts. Side Note: To achieve a fluid design, Dennis T’Jampens knocked down the interior walls in order to save the load bearing wall that separates the kitchen and living room space.
An area rug against veneer flooring is a welcomed idea to introduce texture into the space, and the use of espresso toned flooring to anchor the brightness of the interior wall treatment achieves an elegant atmosphere.
The contemporary modernistic viewpoint of this esthetic lends well to the candor of its geometric design while bursts of cerulean blue add to the calmness in the space. The focal point of the room is the center fireplace wall that divides both common areas. Tract lighting in the kitchen area does not detract from the natural lighting reflecting from the stark white walls.
A center island in the kitchen allows for ease of access, and the decision to create a bar setup makes this quaint space livable. This European room remains charming with recessed appliances, wood veneer countertops, and laminate treatments for the sink area.
The master bedroom has been left as a blank canvas, allowing the homeowner to freely express his or her character and creativity.
Untraditional spaces are fairly common in European countries, and this master bath is no exception. The clean lines and modern fixtures enhance the practicality of the room. Glass enclosures for the shower area maintain the contemporary aspect of this design.
