Like many of the rooms in this home, the kitchen, dining and family room feature floor-to-ceiling windows that provide a stunning view of the city skyline. A modern dining table and chairs make casual dining a cinch, while sleek white cabinets and stainless steel appliances complete the minimalistic look of the space.
Shiplap is a sought-after look these days, but one place to save is in the materials you use. Unprimed spruce is one of the cheapest options, says Austin Lineberry of New River Building Co., who found it at less than 90 cents per linear foot for this home project. Plus, he used shiplap instead of a tile backsplash around the cabinets, for a consistent look and cost-effective option.
The inside of the boathouse is decorated with wicker seating with canvas-like cushions and a wooden coffee table. Nautical accents, such as a marlin mounted on the wall, add to the maritime atmosphere afforded by the wide windows overlooking Horseshoe Bay.
Half-inch steel plates and boards form work together as modern, sculptural retaining walls for a luxury touch on landscaping. The simple backdrop of the steel plate allows the decorative grasses to shine.
Plush love seats are arranged around a wooden coffee table on an upper levels of the terraced lakehouse. The seating area overlooks the boathouse and waters of Horseshoe Bay through windows that maximize the use of daylight.
The curving glass walls of this modern Switzerland home tie the sleek interiors with the surrounding courtyard and offer views of beautiful Lake Lugano and surrounding mountains. The house is designed by architect Milan Jacopo Mascheroni.
The sleek vessel sinks and rippling white wall tiles add texture and interest in this clean, modern double-vanity bathroom. The warm wood vanity, meanwhile, adds warmth. Tile and sinks are by Porcelanosa.
The close-up, side view of this Pure Design Interiors bathroom countertop shows the modern, minimalist style of the space. The modern chrome faucet, with its rounded center water spout, harmonizes nicely with the gray and white marble countertop of the vanity, while the small accessory objects to the left of the faucet give the space an earthy, natural touch.
