Homeowners wanted a modern redesign to their home's exterior, so designers kept the long front porch that meets the neighbors, but punctuated it with modern, vertical windows that penetrate the painted brick section of the home's front facade. Then, they added cedar siding to warm up the exterior space. Finally, a navy blue door adds a splash of color to the design of the home's front elevation.
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.
When the homeowners decided to completely renovate the interior of the Driftwood, Tex., home, the exterior needed an update, too. A new landscaped entry concept maximizes curb appeal and welcomes guests with style.
The open concept design of the home's first floor common spaces makes this home the perfect place for entertaining. The connectedness of the kitchen, dining room and living room create a functional flow between the spaces that allow people, conversation and food to move easily throughout the spaces.
The cypress ceiling of this gorgeous living room is highlighted by the transom windows. White oak millwork encloses the TV and entertainment center and is subtle enough not to distract from the trees and views outside. The coffee table is from Room and Board with a solid pecan top.
