Home Sweet Modern Home

tocha1

There's nothing I love more than a little real estate browsing - especially high end, luxurious spaces that I have no business looking at as my current budget is more of the caravan variety - but nothing like a little fantasy to add a little fun to your day.

I was so impressed by this clean, modern space by Tocha Design.While I'm usually a fan of more classical architecture - I instantly fell for the calm, cool aethestic and, of course, all the fabulous amenities. Tocha has stated their intention as being - to create 'inspired and tranquil livable art' - clearly Rising Glen has embodied this.

This indoor water feature at the entrance is just stunning - I love the way this home seamlessly blends indoors and out.

tocha4The retractable wall in the kitchen makes every day al fresco...

tocha5This would be the perfect spot for a fabulous outdoor party - I'm picturing a balmy summer evening, lots of candles, cocktails, music and if things get a little crazy, maybe a dip in the pool...

tocha6I have always loved the idea of a quiet, private courtyard off a master bedroom or bathroom. You could enjoy an outdoor, or indoor shower or take a long bath - all while enjoying your favourite flicks on the retractable screen. I don't know about you, but I always enjoy Mission Impossible in the bath...

tocha7The master bedroom opens out to the swimming pool - and a delicious view (see below).

tocha9I'm sure I can think of a few trusty pals who could be counted on to help me clear the wine room - the only problem would be keeping it stocked...
