If you live in a dry environment with plenty of sunshine and cool nights, the desert modern look may be a perfect fit. Characterized by simple, low-slung lines, rough textures and classic Western patterns, desert modern is a good mix of contemporary and classic touches.
Clean lines and a cool color scheme makes this guest bathroom an attractive modern space, perfect for a long shower or quick clean up before heading out to enjoy all the popular outdoor activities available in this scenic Whitefish, Montana community nestled at the edge of Glacier National Park.
Like many of the rooms in this home, the kitchen, dining and family room feature floor-to-ceiling windows that provide a stunning view of the city skyline. A modern dining table and chairs make casual dining a cinch, while sleek white cabinets and stainless steel appliances complete the minimalistic look of the space.
Sunsets are sweeter from the back deck of this reimagined 1970’s home. Modern upgrades enhance the home’s architectural angles and additional outdoor seating from the pergola dining area to the covered outdoor kitchen make it easy to entertain and enjoy the beauty of the Northwest year round.
The beauty of Quartz goes way beyond its good looks. You can find it in array of colors and it’s more durable and stain resistant than porous marble and granite which can absorb stains very quickly. This quartz tub surround will hold up well to daily use and makes a bold statement in a Mediterranean inspired blue.
Matching metal and wood chairs line the outdoor bar to provide ample seating for an alfresco breakfast or end-of-the-day cocktail. Placing the outdoor bar under the covered area of the deck maximizes when the space can be used even if it’s raining or snowing.
Together with the dining room, the kitchen comprises an expansive space. The marble island helps divide the space while providing room for the sink and additional storage. The backsplash continues the feel of water in the space which is accented by a few well-placed pieces of art, including the designer's initials: MB.
This stunning view from the kitchen to the dining room and the lounge area of the great room shows the consistent color scheme and coordinated look for these main indoor living spaces of this lodge-style retreat.
Shiplap is a sought-after look these days, but one place to save is in the materials you use. Unprimed spruce is one of the cheapest options, says Austin Lineberry of New River Building Co., who found it at less than 90 cents per linear foot for this home project. Plus, he used shiplap instead of a tile backsplash around the cabinets, for a consistent look and cost-effective option.
