Jerusalem. Rehavia. An old, dark, crowded garden apartment decorated with supporting columns and plinth walls becomes a well-lighted, spacious and elegant home.

The apartment was divided into two living areas – public and private – with the public area facing the busy street and the private one facing a back, quiet and green backyard.

The public area highlights a classic entrance hall: entryway closet, console table and a big mirror hiding a fuse box.

The kitchen was carefully planned for a Kosher-observing family. The sinks were separated to produce a meat and a dairy countertop with the stoves sitting in the middle. Extra attention was given to many, accessible storage spaces. The washing machine and drier were hidden behind doors in the spacious kitchen, as the other kitchen cabinets.

A formal dining area was placed at the heart of the public space embraced by a holy book bookcase on one end and a white piano on the other.

To accentuate the dining area, the surrounding walls were painted velvet gold which radiates aristocracy, wealth and abundance.

The elegant living room was located under a special ceiling, which, in Sukkoth opens up to allow placing branches and creating a proper Sukkah.

The private area consists of a pampering master bedroom with a well-lit, ventilated bathroom and a white Onyx countertop for the bathroom vanity top. At night the LEDs underneath the vanity top can be switched on for a romantic, magical atmosphere in the bathroom too.

In addition, a bedroom for a teenage boy and a family spacious, pampering bathroom were planned.

The romantic-rustic style plays a leading role in the house, especially in the kitchen with rustic white and cream frames and knobs, natural oak countertops, and old-fashioned windows.

The floor is made of pale marble.

The color scheme chosen for the house consists of soft hues of cream, white and beige with touches of gold and turquoise.
