A Book Lover’s Forest Home in Mexico

A Book Lover’s Forest Home in Mexico

Are you a book enthusiast and looking for a home design that fully caters to your interests?

Then this 1,937-square foot home design by Paul Cremoux Studio will tickle your fancy. The home is both book and nature smart. It receives direct sunlight from the east, west, and south. And you don’t have to rely on the grid-supplied water, thanks to the rainwater that’s being drained through two filters.

Let’s take a walk around the home and see what it has to offer to book lovers.

Stepping into the home via the open-framed sliding door, you are welcomed by a Scandinavian living space. Your eye can’t miss the wall of books, and the striking white staircase zig-zagging over it.

The colorful shelves, framed in a wooden block provide a dazzling backdrop for the understated furniture.

Featuring similarly-toned floors, the living room and kitchen space radiate a relaxing aura. Holding a couple of pastel cushions, the powder blue couch sits opposite a table and two wooden school chairs. The two lighter-toned cabinets can’t go unmentioned.

The dining space, featuring simple wood, sits at a corner opposite a window. The window floods the space with natural light during the day. Likewise, a simple white dome light mounted over the dining table provides the much-needed light at night. And the MOMA bowl makes a beautiful dining table centerpiece.

A view outside reveals an ingenious joining of wood panels and plaster. And surrounding lush greenery provides a spectacular view. Hedges and ferns spread over an outdoor garage, while the large trees create a forest view and aura to the main interior.

Huge steel frames on the second floor create perpendicular grates. Extending into the home is a wooden-floored observation balcony with a small, rounded light. The vast window joinery provides a view in the days of rain.

Overall, the construction upholds a block look, which adds interest at the intersection of wood and plastered-white.

And what do we have in the private areas?

A wooden door leads you to the bathroom, a white-tiled space. Oblong furniture reveals a wooden-toned double sink and mirror panel. There’s a rainforest shower that matches the forest aura of the home. The toilet is separated by a misted glass panel, which upholds privacy with a light and bright touch.
