This spacious hallway features the perfect nook for a small home office, complete with a desk and brown leather chair. A peek over the wrought iron railing shows off several metal and glass pendant lights that illuminate the foyer below.
This cute modern home features a symmetric shape and soft blue siding. A natural hardwood deck is left open to expand the feel of the home and the yard. A large window from the kitchen takes a unique shape extending over the door and providing a connection to the light and modern style inside. Red chairs add a small touch of color to decorate the exterior.
The modern home features clean lines and meticulous landscaping, and a large hangar with a small plane. The in-between outdoor courtyard includes a double sided fireplace, reflecting pool and outdoor kitchen.
This charming small house in Toronto, Canada built by architect Craig Race of Craig Race Architecture is founded on sustainability. Craig's previous home was a drafty 100-year-old home that was expensive to heat and cool. The whimsical design of this home is an effort to be accommodating to the varied setback plans of the homes on either side and be respectful of the scale of neighbors' homes. An important part of sustainable small home design in urban spaces is being conscientious of scale, the aesthetics of the neighborhood and overall, being a good neighbor.
Placing a barbecue and swimming pool in the side yard of this small home is an amazing way to expand outdoor living space. The yard's simple yet attractive landscaping provides privacy, and the grill is appropriately placed against the house for safety.
A white desk is positioned against pastel yellow walls in this small office area. A green electric typewriter complements the green chair and artwork. An antique bird cage, small three-legged table and floor lamp accessorize the quaint study space.
Decked out with copper gutters, French doors and two balconies, this Colonial style home mixes timeless tradition and style. A small brick patio encourages outdoor entertaining beside low rose bushes and a manicured lawn.
A fountain doesn't always need to be the center of attention in a patio. A small fountain or pond can be added to a corner and enhance the ambience with its soothing sounds. The landscape plan for this backyard in Edina, Minn., is by Southview Design.
