The interior of the house is a combination of modern and minimalist, with some details added from materials and furniture. Wooden floor dominates the house details for both the first and second floors, and it offers a natural and beautiful interior view.
To ease the furniture arrangement and also give more free space to move, the homeowner places a sofa in the living room. Then, there are only freestanding/wall-mounted kitchen cabinets and a dining table adjacent to the cooktop and oven cabinet.

The focal dwelling colors are bold white and some earthy tones. The living room, for example, accentuates its minimalist and modern design with white and natural wooden sofa and floor colors. Also, the kitchen looks warm by the contrasting view of the radiant reddish-brown color of cabinets and white walls.
