The U-shaped design of this modern home in Lugano, Switzerland, is complemented by the undulating lines of the courtyards that surround it. Glass walls open the 3,658-square-foot structure to views of Lake Lugano and surrounding mountains.
Light and Bright Home Office With Pink Acrylic Chairs
Natural light illuminates this modern home office which includes two pink acrylic chairs positioned behind a wood desk with white metal legs. Pink tulips fill a light green garden pot and sit atop the desk, while a bright blue lamp on a nearby metallic end table provides a pop of color.
An attached bath gives the owners room to cool off after a long day by the water. Smooth gray tile surrounds the spacious tub, adding subtle interest to the white walls, while sconce and recessed lighting further the clean design.
Neutral Kids' Bedroom With Blue Ottoman and Whimsical Wallpaper
Wallpaper with a whimsical, retro feel dresses up the sitting area in this kids' room. The bright blue ottoman and chair along with the orange patterned pillow add another layer of color to the space. Sleek, white wall shelving and window seat under-storage provide stylish and space-saving options for books and toys. A patterned roman shade allows plenty of natural light into the room.
Exposed beams make this modern kitchen feel cozy, even with vaulted ceilings. Upholstered teal barstools with chrome legs fit perfectly underneath the counter. A wine fridge also fits snuggly under the counter for easy access.
Open Concept Living and Dining Areas With Natural Light
A wall-to-wall window allows natural light to flood these living and dining areas complete with neutral furniture and a wooden dining table. A metal strap globe chandelier illuminates the dining room, while the living rom features two gold metal shelves and a yellow area rug.
Built-in furnishings like the bed and nightstands maintain a small footprint in this not-so-big condo bedroom. A gray-and-white color scheme and floor-to-ceiling windows open up the space and make it feel light as air.
From dreary and dated to calm and sophisticated, designers restored the neoclassical plaster work in the living room to reveal a luxurious, yet comfortable space. They removed the old fireplace that was dark and too heavy for the space and replaced it with a monolithic slab of real marble and a fully functioning fireplace that is light and inviting. The room’s lower ceiling lends the space an intimate feel that is enhanced by the absence of a television, putting the emphasis in this space on face-to-face family time.
