    The home is situated in a landscaped garden with additional outdoor living spaces. Weather resistant furniture and an eclectic mix of art makes this space ideal for gatherings and entertaining. The overhang of the roof provides shading outdoors as well as for the top-level clerestory windows to allow diffuse light in, while keeping heat out. Garden vegetation also provides natural shading for the windows, while allowing light in.

Homeowner Nana used natural light, luscious vegetation and eclectic and thoughtfully chosen art to create a home that takes advantage of the sun, climate and culture of Ghana. When creating your own home oasis, consider using large windows that provide natural light and views into your garden. In addition, use art to add personality to your space, both indoors and out. Create bright, airy interiors with lots of light and add color and texture with art objects. You’ll thank yourself every time you open your door.
