The streamlined design, the floor beds, and natural materials of wood, bamboo, and stone will certainly give you a relaxed state of mind. Keeping things clean and simple, plus capitalizing on good ambient lighting, are key to achieving this type of aesthetic.
A modern space with charming elements incorporated give Pnoe an undeniably luxurious yet quaint feel. Its high ceilings and huge windows allow for a lot of natural light, giving the rooms a bright and fresh vibe – perfect for this sunny island destination. White floors, walls, and ceilings add to the lightness and airiness of the space. Some homeowners are hesitant to go all-white, in fear of having their home look plain and boring.
