A fusion of styles, layering of materials, and elegant design are the prominent features of a home designed by interior designer, Keren Niv-Toledano. She designed it for a thirty something couple and their son in one of the most pastoral community settlements in the center of Israel. The urban-industrial concept, with a minimalist nod, provides a warm and cozy ambiance thanks to surprising combinations of elements. A glimpse of a refined, meticulous living space which matches the spirit, desires and tastes of its owners without resorting to trends.
在一对30多岁的夫妇家中，一对年幼的儿子实现了创造一个精确、细致和有趣的住宅空间的幻想。这座住宅位于以色列最宁静、最葱茏的社区之一，由建筑师Eyal Ben Ayun设计，完美地包装了Keren Niv-Toledano的室内设计。她成功地为这个家庭创造了一个优雅和吸引人的生活空间，通过规划木工细节，选择墙壁覆盖物、照明装置、家具、纺织品和丰富的艺术，增加了文化和个人维度。该设计为居住者提供了一个完整的功能解决方案，包括存储解决方案，使空间整洁、通风和有组织。
The fantasy to create a precise, meticulous and fun, residential space was fulfilled in the home of a couple in their 30s with a young son. The exterior shell of the home, located in one of the most tranquil and verdant communities in Israel, was designed by architect, Eyal Ben Ayun - a perfect wrapping for the interior design entrusted to Keren Niv-Toledano. She successfully created an elegant and inviting living space for the family by planning the woodworking details and selecting the wall coverings, lighting fixtures, furniture, textiles, and the abundant art which adds a cultural and personal dimension. The design provides a fully functional solution for the occupants of the home and includes storage solutions that leave the space neat, airy and organized.
As in all her work, Niv-Toledano was meticulous about the treatment of the inner shell of this house too. Beginning with the wooden and stone floors, to the walls that are highlighted with shades and textures, and, finally, on to the ceilings. These all provide a precisely detailed setting for the additional elements: woodwork, lighting, furniture, textiles, art and accessories. Her process, the layering of materials such as concrete, wood and iron, alongside soft, refined and transparent materials such as linen, velvet, crystals, and rattan, produces full-depth environments with a sophisticated and rich look.
The house is located on a half-dunam plot and is divided into three levels: an entrance level with an impressive foyer, a sculptural staircase that rises to a double-height, kitchen, dining area, living room, guest bathroom, and pool and yard access. A patio bridges the entrance and living floors, allowing natural light into the house.
The design is not pretentious or chintzy. On the contrary, it is urban, industrial and somewhat masculine with a minimalist touch, simultaneously transmitting an abundance of warmth and tenderness. Niv-Toledano diligently used strong, dominant and rough elements and created strata of materials, textures and patterns, built in layers, rendering an original, updated and innovative look. The exterior remains classic, almost neutral. The large, massive elements serve as a background upon which the secondary elements were based - tone on tone, graduated from light to dark. Small items like pillows, art pieces, and accessories are what infuse the space with a fashionable and colorful dimension and provide an aspect of drama and interest.
