Sliding glass doors were added throughout this midcentury modern-style home to allow views out to the atrium from many different areas of the house. The serene outdoor space mixes midcentury and zen influences.
The exterior of this 5-bedroom, 7-bathroom home in Potomac, Maryland is grand enough. But wait until you peek inside. There's a cathedral-like foyer, marble floors and a lavish atrium with a wading pool!
The bottom of the wading pool gets an incredible mosaic tile design with jewel-rich colors. The exotic setting, inspired by Versace's mansion, is continued via columns, more mosaic designs and palm trees.
What was once an overgrown outdoor area is now a tranquil atrium that mixes midcentury modern and Asian influences. The space features a modern infinity pour koi pond and a statue of the Indonesian goddess Sri.
Imagine walking through the courtyard, listening to the hum of the afternoon and enjoying spectacular views of the villa and atrium. The courtyard's gravel paths not only make this possible, but seem to strongly encourage it as well.
Adding a small tabletop atrium to your kitchen can give it an organic, earthy feel. In this kitchen, designers with homebuilder Lennar carry the vibe through the room with a textured tray on the console and earth-toned pastas in glass containers on the back counter.
