House in the cave: an unusual story about love on the ocean

Is it possible to make a house out of the cave? To find out, we go on a sea voyage, on the southern coast of Uruguay. We are sure that what you see will be so impressive that you will look for all possible ways to repeat this interior. Man and nature can exist together, without harming each other. A striking proof of this is the amazing cave house built on the ocean. It is located in Punta del Este (south of Uruguay), and lives in it a loving couple.

Love conquers the rocks

The uniqueness of this house is that itBuilt in a rock, next to the ocean. Boulders, wooden beams and sand became building materials, which formed the basis for it. The idea to create a home here was born to a man and a woman, when they met here on the ocean, more than ten years ago and fell in love with each other. On a memorable place for them, they decided to build a joint house. The rock was the peak that they needed to conquer together. And they did it with success. No wonder there is a saying that love can turn mountains. This is the very case. The lovers built their own house. It took a lot of time to do this. But their home is filled with warmth and love and is the only one of its kind that they are insanely proud of.

Natural building materials and marine style

Inspired by the owners of the house from nature. Simplicity and naturalness formed the basis of the interior. It is not surprising that the owners chose the universal naval style. It can be used both in luxury villas (in the fashion of luxury yachts), and in urban apartments and, as it turned out, in such unusual houses. Characteristic features of the style - rough design, natural raw materials, wooden beams on the ceiling. All this gives space a feeling of intimacy and comfort. Apparently, the owner of the house is a former fisherman, so he transferred his love of the sea to the interior. Once in this cave he kept nets for fishing and mussels. Now this is a full house.

Cave tour

One room is occupied by a kitchen with a large woodenTable and open shelves. Part of the wall is not painted, it also serves as original shelves for various small objects. The other room is divided into three zones: for sleeping, for rest and for work. A minimal set of furniture and interesting decoration items make the house special. In the recreation area, the role of the sofa is performed by a special place of stones. To make it comfortable to sit, there are decorative cushions and a thick veil. This decision once again points to the naturalness and simplicity of the interior, its connection with the surrounding cave by nature and the sea. And the effect is enhanced by pebbles, which are collected in a round metal grid standing in the middle of the room. By a cozy atmosphere, which reigns in the cave house, we can judge that it is created by the mistress. It softens the roughness of materials with pleasant decor items, pillows, bedding of own production. We can assume that in her youth she worked in a fashionable studio and was engaged in sewing.

The colors of the sea

The color scheme of the sea style is light and light. To the room did not look gloomy, the stone walls, the floor of clay and the wooden ceiling were painted white. Light blue textiles and some decor elements were picked up in the same color palette. It turned out simply and beautifully. Classics of the genre - white and blue color and strip. Our opinion: - If you want to decorate an interior in the marine style, which will remind you of the cabin of the yacht, instead of the classic white and blue range, choose beige, brown and green colors.

Porthole and stained-glass windows

Daylight enters the dwelling through smallWindows are triangular in shape. On one of them we put a stained glass window. The sun's rays pass through colored glass and color the space in different colors. A small detail of the interior underscores the uniqueness of this house. Of course, accessories to the marine theme is added by the porthole. It looks stylish and emphasizes the individuality of this interior. Thanks to the smooth lines and bends, he gives the room a softness. Through it, the owners of the house enjoy ocean beauties, which fascinate their space.
