Free Living: Bosch Net Zero House Tour

While we were at Serenbe yesterday, we stopped in to tour the Bosch Net Zero House. This house is built so green that a family of four could live here with no power bill! Wouldn't it be amazing if we could all live that green? Read more about how they did it here. 
My favorite part was the amazing decor. 
 Tiny gold chicken wire  in the cabinets. Wallpaper behind the shelves. 
 Look at this distressed mirror behind the stove, and on the backsplash. It was dark like mercury glass. 
 The living room was a small space, but perfect for reading a book, or coffee with friends. I love the sticks in the fireplace.
 The raw wood and natural elements paired with structured and tailored pieces are the perfect blend of Serenbe style. 

 The bed in the master bedroom is a refreshing pop of color. Note the green and natural tones are carried throughout the whole first floor. This helps create spacial unity.  
 The ikat pattern is carried into the master bath on this little setee.
There are cute little numbers on each step heading up the sisal covered stairs. 
The bedroom upstairs features more upholstered beds. Instead of window curtains, curtains are hung by hooks behind each bed. The horsehair rug, and hoofed stools bring the modern farm style into this room. 

Down the hall is a study. These books are printed on glass and resemble trees.
The house is so efficient even tiny spaces are used of storage.
This is a great solution to a decorative shower curtain, using regular 84" curtains.
There is a curtained, screened in sleeping porch on the side with a swing that doubles as a twin sized bed. 
I love the pop of design on the porch with these unexpected lanterns. I was very impressed with the attention paid to the outdoor spaces in Serenbe. 
I hope you enjoyed the tour!
