This great room features a glass wall that offers sweeping lake views. Instead of using steel as a structural support, the wall is supported by stacked glass, similar to an urban skyscraper. An automated cabinet above the fireplace opens at the click of a button to reveal the TV. Meanwhile, ceiling beams and warm wood finishes give a nod to the home's Mediterranean design.
Keeping a neutral palette gives this bedroom design an air of sophistication and victorian class. The wall hangings behind the bed were displayed at the same elevation as the armoire; window treatments to the ceiling were used at the same height to reduce the skyscraper effect. The bed linens and tufted headboard add pleasing texture and depth to the design.
Night or day, this urban living room always has an incredible view. The white leather furniture mimics the white of the skyscrapers outside the window and makes a nice contrast with the dark wood floors.
Emerald green velvet chairs pair with a live edge wood table in the dining room, creating a look that matches the grandeur of the LA skyscrapers outside the window. For more texture, a sheepskin rug is layered under the table.
This urban roof deck cleverly incorporates structural details, like pipes and vents, into its overall design. Here, tall exhaust pipes were wrapped in aluminum frames and cedar boards. The resulting look mimics the city's skyscrapers.
This open plan living and dining area takes full advantage of its big city views, courtesy of a floor-to-ceiling window along one wall. The clean, simple lines of the furnishings and art echo the skyscrapers.
The panoramic cityscape of San Diego is the standout visual attraction in this loft apartment, so sliding glass doors and large windows on all sides help it be on full display. Thick white curtains provide privacy when needed without darkening the small space.
