On the front of the detached garage, metal sunshades with cutouts protect the library from the afternoon sun by filtering sunlight through the cutouts to provide just the right amount of light, giving the library space a warm, elegant feeling.
As the afternoon sun pours onto this two-story building, the metal cutout sunshade helps to filter the light that makes it into the library. This helps regulate the temperature in the space, but it also dapples the library with an elegant glow that allows readers plenty of light to explore their favorite books.
The screen facade of this two-story construction is made from bronze anodized aluminum with patterned cutouts that are a nod to the original home's precast concrete window grilles. Though this is a contemporary design for this historic site, the building's form and exterior materials match the historic home.
The ceiling in this bedroom is comprised of interlocking dark wood panels, with lighter wood cutouts and shapes. A metal chandelier hangs from the ceiling above a white daybed and large white ottoman. Heavy drapery borders a glass door and windows, showcasing a stunning mountain view.
Add a fluffy white cushion to an antique chair, or any wood or metal seat, to give your room an instant touch of snowy elegance. Atlanta designer Robin LaMonte also placed glittery snowflake cutouts in the built-in display cabinet and filled in the spaces with greenery and jewel-toned items.
With a corrugated metal roof and large cutouts, this outdoor lounge offers shelter from the afternoon sun and encourages cool breezes. Throw pillows and an area rug in soft, neutral hues help showcase the subtle texture of the structure itself: the brushed concrete, the beams radiating from the built-in fireplace and the unique pattern of the tile flooring.
In this sophisticated kitchen, a floating metal canopy lowers the ceiling plane and cozies up the space. The light from the teardrop pendants goes through the cutouts making a compelling play of shadow and texture on the walls and ceiling. The wire brushed walnut island is moveable and detaches to serve as a wine tasting bar or buffet.
