The aesthetic in this modern bedroom is "rock star gothic grunge with a modern twist." Custom mural wallpaper by Iris Maschek is recessed into an illuminated cove and framed with a custom silver leaf frame by Voila Gallery, becoming artwork in the space. The neo-Baroque Abigail Ahern light fixture above the bed is a masterpiece on its own.

Black isn’t only for interiors: It’s a bold, modern choice for exteriors of every style, too. “The black exterior allows this house to blend into its dark, forested surroundings while providing a bold contrast to the colorful foliage and bright interior,” say the architects at GSA Architects. “Painting the vertical tongue and groove siding a dark color helps hide the joints between boards, giving the siding a more homogenous and minimal look. Make sure to use a satin exterior paint to avoid accumulating too much dirt on the siding.”
“Our client had the fantastic idea to use rolling tool cabinets in her kitchen,” says architect Nick Pancheau. “We designed a simple kitchen island combining seating and storage in a single movable piece. We selected a lime-green finish to match the fritted glass lamp shades made by the client; a subtle dark-green soapstone countertop rests atop the cabinets.”

To create the illusion of a floating stair, designers hid the support in the wall behind the stairs. This support, along with the co-planar, clear-tempered glass rails and childproof open slots elegantly comply with New York's rigorous safety code as well as the highest child safety standards.

With the pool in front of it, the main house plays host to the living room and modern master suite, while the guest house contains the guest rooms and the home theater.

Translucent Finishes Accentuate White Kitchen Bar Area
Carefully placed translucent accents in the bar area play up the modern design of the kitchen and give the space a more pristine aesthetic. The white countertop, walls and cabinetry showcase each decorative item of color, such as the gold drinking glasses on the table and the orchid plant in its gold vase. The lucite barstools also complement the look.
Recessed lighting and LEDs in the pool illuminate this outdoor space for use into the evening. An infinity-edge both complements the home's modern design and showcases the natural beauty of the landscape.
