This beautiful modern home in the hills is a nature lover's dream come true! For it, the architect used two sizes of Western red cedar screening to vent the facade and create a horizontal pattern. Trees and plants become one with the building, and the large windows welcome the outdoors in to create an even more serene environment.
Low-profile furnishings were selected for this modern living room to keep all eyes focused on the view. A leather ottoman serves as a coffee table in the space, but can be cleared and double as seating when entertaining guests. Using non-traditional mountain house colors like bright yellow helps balance the home's bold architectural features.
