PHX Architecture designs a new headquarters, called Venue8600, for the Scottsdale Area Association of REALTORS®. The building features large training rooms, a breakout hall, patios and second-floor administrative offices, as well as a coffee cafe.
Contemporary furnishings create contrast when set in a historic home. Designer Shelley Cahan combined a simple, white canopy bed, crisp white trim and olive-toned accents in the bedroom of this 20th century home for a look that is both modern and timeless.
Neutral stones, dark woodgrain and white siding create a patchwork exterior on this contemporary home. The mix of finishes works well with the intriguing shapes and levels of the architecture. A concrete walkway makes sharp turns from the driveway to frame the corners of the house.
Warm neutral tones and streamline furnishing compliment the lines and feel of the house's contemporary architecture. Natural light and breathtaking views from the walls of glass lend to the expansive feel and airiness of the space.
Landscaping lighting illuminates the walkway to a home that blends coastal and contemporary architecture. A small seating area with Adirondack chairs is perfect for taking in the sunset or the distant Olympic Mountains.
A unique, angled wood and metal doorway is nestled into a vermillion accent wall, creating a striking foyer that's made even more dramatic with a massive, grid-patterned skylight. Steel beams and metal rails fit with the home's contemporary architecture.
In the courtyard gallery garden at the 2016 San Francisco Decorator Showcase, landscape designer Megan Van Linda pays homage to the Venice Biennale, the biennial, internationally acclaimed exhibition of contemporary art in Italy. A custom mural by San Francisco artist The Apexer and a modern lounger add contemporary flair to the Italianate architecture of the home.
This room screams traditional style with its raised-panel walls, crown molding, high ceiling and ornate chandelier. But the floral plates hung on the wall, blue settees and matching chesterfield sofas give the space a fun contemporary twist.
A water feature with stacked stone accents ties this home's contemporary architecture to the surrounding landscape and provides a great view from the living room. A variety of native plants in built-in planters soften the linear architecture and bring color to the neutral vignette.
A sleek fireplace is the focal point of this chic living space that blends traditional architectural details and contemporary furnishings. The bold navy sofa and glass coffee table pairs with graphic-patterned and chrome chairs for a welcoming, comfortable seating area.
Architectural detailing — from the swirled columns to the intricate crown molding — draws the eye into this beautiful living room. Classic furniture pieces are updated with sleek, contemporary lines, and a furry area rug softens and grounds the space.
