An exterior view of this modern home highlights its slender shape and large windows. The yard can be accessed on either side of the porch with concrete staircases. Orange chairs add a pop of color against the gray exterior.
This home is designed to be a functional space that complimented the backyard's mature trees. The yard is built to tolerate the hot central Texas temperatures but also be beautiful during the Spring and Fall months when grasses grow. The fence surrounding the yard is finished with a warm wood stain.
The house is nestled into masses of Hydrangea and windswept grasses. The full plant life gives natural color, texture and levels to the landscaping. The textured siding creates a nice finish against the smooth look of the white home outline and balcony stairs.
Utilize small spaces like this cubby by incorporating a wet bar. A tall, slim wine refrigerator supplies ample bottle storage, while glasses can be stored hanging upside down or in the cabinets. Finish the space with a stylish decanter and an ice bucket.
The contrast between light stone and dark-stained wood brings design distinction to this Spanish living room. A tall stone fireplace ties in with the stone surround of the room's entryway, which features a dark-stained lintel that adds architectural interest as well as structural stability. Furnishings are neutral and slipcovered, adding to the room's casual vibe.
The back of this home is almost as beautiful as the front, with a rolling green lawn and tall trees lining the fence. Once the sun goes down, the owners can take a seat on the patio and sip cocktails as the stars come out.
