Architects designed this modern home so that the entire structure has either access to or a view of the patio and swimming pool, creating a unique, inclusive design. On the first floor, large glass doors and tons of windows allow direct access to the back patio and backyard, while the second floor bedrooms are given a clear view of the spaces at the rear of the home.
Warm yet modern, this open kitchen with large eat-in island is ideal for the whole family as well as entertaining. White oak hardwood is used for the floors, while the cabinets were made from local materials and craftsmen. Windows over the sink bring in natural light and overlook the gardens.
With its many windows, the nighttime view of this Hyde Park home from the street gives off the impression that the home is glowing from the inside, highlighting the openness of the design-even from outside.
The homeowners love to entertain, so designers brought in a long dining table and comfortable modern chairs. The table seats eight and provides plenty of room for a dinner party. To define the open space, a tan rug and modern pendant light chandelier highlights the dining area and creates a separation between it, the living room and the kitchen.
A farmhouse sink nestles in the gray granite countertops and sleek white cabinets, designed by local Texas craftsmen. White oak is used for the flooring, while a wall of windows brings in tons of natural light. The island not only acts as dining spot but also houses extra storage.
A limestone fireplace takes center stage in this relaxing living space. White oak floors ground the space, while pecan French doors lead out to the gardens. Furniture with sleek, curvy lines nod to the contemporary style of the home.
This is a modern take on a farmhouse kitchen with all white floor to ceiling cabinets and walls, panel refrigerator, vent hood, and work island with midcentury modern stools and black pendant lighting.
