This white-walled window seat gets a jolt of color, pattern and texture from a fun array of pink pillows. A custom Roman shade blends with the walls, keeping the space crisp and clean. A reading lamp and built-in shelves add function to the space.
Sleek, modern rooflines and windows stand in sharp contrast to the earthiness of the front door surround and lush landscaping at this Eugene, Ore., home. A Japanese maple offers a pop of color against the gray exterior.
A custom Roman shade almost disappears above this modern window seat, keeping the space clean and crisp while lowering to block light when needed. A built-in shelf, wall sconce and custom cushion topped with pillows are all functional touches that make this reading nook a dreamy space for a young girl.
Walls of windows surround this outdoor space, too, and so allow the owners to appreciate views of the courtyard from almost every room. With landscape lights right in the water, the pond becomes an especially stunning focal point.
The designers of this spectacular modern home wanted to flood the interiors with natural light. One of the ways they achieved this was to add clerestory windows that have the added effect of making the ceiling seem to float above the walls.
This spacious kitchen gets its modern style from the sleek white walls and countertops and minimal decor. But lack of decor doesn't mean lack of style, as is evidenced by clean lines and a stunning wall of window.
