To create this eclectic home, designers integrated the Austin outdoor lifestyle with casual, nice living. This spacious common area has high ceilings and added windows that allow in plenty of natural light and create a bright, open space. Off to the side, the sliding glass door opens onto the renovated back patio.
This 12,000-square-foot contemporary Florida home is located on one and a half acres of land. To keep the land eco-friendly, the lawn is synthetic grass. A sleek swimming pool seamlessly meets the lawn and is the perfect spot to relax outdoors.
The sleek, contemporary pool has a zero edge and flows seamlessly with the lawn. The outdoor kitchen features a bar, comfortable sitting area and flatscreen TVs, while a hot tub is the perfect spot to relax in this chic backyard.
The home's conference room is grounded by herringbone reclaimed wood flooring and comfortable gray chairs surround the sleek oval table. Sliding glass doors pocket into the wall, allowing for an unobstructed indoor-outdoor feel.
An oversized island with a sleek black waterfall countertop has plenty of room for eight chrome barstools. Matte-finished oak cabinetry pairs with a glossy tile backsplash for a masculine, monochromatic feel.
The formal dining room receives an abundance of natural light from the transom windows above. Herringbone-patterned wood flooring is reclaimed barn wood from a local barn, while a long, sleek glass table pairs with comfortable leather chairs. Oversized abstract artwork brings bright color to the room.
Large artwork makes a bold statement in the contemporary black-and-white living room. A gray shag rug grounds the space, bringing in texture, while a combination of sleek gray, white and black furniture make for a cozy seating area. Chunky wood coffee tables add warmth to the space.
This contemporary home seamlessly blends indoors and out. The chic living room completely opens up to a covered outdoor seating area. A black-and-white palette give the rooms a modern, sophisticated feeling.
Don't shy away from inviting guests over just because you have a studio apartment, small back yard or dining room that isn't as large as you’d like. By following these simple steps, you can still pull together a perfect party where guests will embrace the charm of your cozy space.
