The white color cream assumes that the wood in this case is obtained with a “bleaching” industrial process. It is in fact of a coating that is carried out, during processing, on rough wooden planks; is applied on the wood, a product, usually acrylic, that contains a quantity of pigments (in paste or ground) variable according to the white level that you want to have, more or less intense or opaque.

As often it happens in contemporary homes, living room and kitchen were placed in an open space where everything is in view while having kept sufficiently separate the functions. The master bedroom is complemented by a walk-in closet and a bathroom for the exclusive use with shower masonry; There are also another smaller bedroom, single, and a large service environment, with a bathtub.
