A dream home is the reflection of its owner’s personality and taste in home decor, and is planned with love, care and a good deal of thought. The house we’re going to see today is specially designed keeping in mind the owner’s Puerto Rican roots and her desire to recreate the rich flavors of her island abode in Washington DC. Ably executed by architects at Kube Architecture, Mi Casita showcases Puerto Rican architecture with the use of vibrant colors, optimum natural light and specific materials. Let’s have a look at the fascinating result!

​An imposing facade.

This double story house is an impressive sight with its exposed black brick walls, white borders and large glass windows! The monochromatic appearance of the facade is refined and elegant but we can see vibrant orange walls through the windows, indicating a more dramatic look within!

​Refined relaxation in the living area.

The living area is a sophisticated space with a white porcelain tile floor, elegant white and black furniture and a cozy beige sofa. Colorful works of art by Puerto Rican and local artists adorn the walls, adding a splash of color and enlivening the area. A unique pendant light near the window adds a beautiful touch as well.

​Bright and airy environment.

From this angle we can see that there are multiple large windows permitting the entry of ample natural light, while recessed lights dot the ceiling for a lovely effect at night. The slatted partition between the sofa and the staircase looks light and trendy.

​A cheerful kitchen.

The variety of vibrant colors brings Puerto Rican charm to the house. Also note the dark bamboo flooring on the second floor, in contrast to the white porcelain tile flooring below.
