To take this modern Austin, Texas home from drab to fab, designers used different colored paints to create depth and drama on the front of this home. The simple elevation of the structure required a unique color to highlight the depth of the home, so designers chose an orange color, highlighted by a neutral gray for the main part of the home and a brown for accents. These colors will carry into the home and create a fun, eclectic space on the interior as well as bring curb appeal to the home's modern facade.
To add texture, color and contrast, the walls of this bathroom were clad with reclaimed barn siding featuring different shades of gray, brown and white. In order to attach the siding, each plank was cut to size with a circular saw, lightly sanded to help smooth the surface, then installed to the wall with a nail gun.
Green stucco siding and brown shutters create an earthy color palette for this Craftsman-style home. White corbels and trim frame the windows and roof line. The transom window above the door and stone columns are typical of Craftsman-style design.
