I’ve been watching Extraordinary Homes on netflix and of all the many spectacular homes, this one made my heart leap and soothed it at the same time.
While I always dream of buying my parents a place that helps them live well in old age and with dignity, this architect built it for his mother.
And that’s just too amazing.
The cedar planks on the outside make it look like a model of magical woodland creatures’ homes. Or if 5 out of the 7 dwarves moved to Japan.
The eclectic interior decor works so well, but it’s the bath that got me. Japanese baths are already awesome – but this one, spirals down gently and creates such a soothing swirl that I feel relaxed just by looking at it.
