And now, dear travelers of our fascinating forum, we will travel with you to Germany, the city of Solingen. There we will see a quite mature house with a great interior, built in the seventies of the twentieth century, but modernized and renovated in 2013.
This amazingly massive, austere, elegant mansion reminds exactly the image of a representative of the German state –equally refined, clean, surrounded by order and harmony, dark and gloomy on the outside, but unusually bright from the inside. This building – a reflection of the essence of the real German. On solid foundations, like a fortress, the building reminds of a rich hermit. The size of the building, and the size of the windows, balconies, and terraces, suggest the prosperity of the owners. And restraint in colors and decorations – about their modesty.
The striking porch-corridor that surrounds all the facades and is draped in a concrete colonnade leaves you feeling centuries-old and conservative. The interior decoration of the rooms is up to date with today's interior fashion trends. The huge spaces are further enhanced by the white color that covers all the walls and ceilings. Solid modular furniture, interesting accessories made of metal and shimmering glass reflect the –constructivism style of the interior in a very restrained and laconic way.
Softening up this ascetic picture, the luxuriant garden and lawn surrounding the building. The soft silky grass in front of the driveway, the old trees with huge crowns – that's exactly what the house lacked in its gloomy concrete garb.
