A change in the paradigm of luxury homes

And the comfort and design have become the most striking qualities of a house from a relatively minimalist perspective. Certainly the lines of the designs have become more homogeneous. Everything must be in place and look harmonious and balanced manner.


On the other hand, this transformation of tastes (there will always be exceptions) is closely linked to the extent that, in recent times, have the new technologies. It obviously is a resource that improve our lives and spaces in which we live.
