Container Guest House, San Antonio
Though it would make for an ideal tiny home, this Container Guest House in a San Antonio, Texas backyard functions as the perfect accommodation for visitors. As is the norm with container homes, environmentally friendly practices were top-of-mind, explaining why Poteet Architects kept its original blue color, along with the exterior text. There are plenty of other green features as well. The addition of a floor-to-ceiling window adds natural light, while sliding doors provide plenty of fresh air. The roof garden is watered by grey water (runoff water from the sink and shower). The bathroom contains a composting toilet, and recycled soda bottles are part of the deck’s building materials. If that’s not enough, the exterior light fixtures are local tractor blades, and the foundation consists of — you’d never guess — recycled telephone poles.
For a pair of young homeowners, the designer of this home wanted the dining room to feel playful, stylish and a bit more youthful. Putting a darker color on the ceiling, then painting the walls fresh white cozies up the space while maintaining an open feel. A few bold accents—like the leopard print curtains—add edge.
Crisp Midcentury Modern Kitchen Design With Marble Backsplash and Octagon Pendant Lights
This beautifully crisp kitchen design features a polished light color scheme and sharp lines. A trio of octagon pendant lights hangs over the island marble countertop. The backsplash echoes the marble finish between light, neutral cabinets.
The modern interior design of this luxurious living space features two brass chandeliers that double as art pieces. Light colored walls pair with warm wooden tones that define the open concept space, from the dining table to the plush living room.
Luxurious Master Bathroom With Glass Walk-In Shower and Green Accents
This stunning master bathroom features a marble enclosed tub that offers a view of the enclosed glass double walk-in shower. Green leather benches flank the shower, while tiles with onyx and mother of pearl inlay cover the floor. A Fortuny chandelier hangs above.
Modern Glam Dining Room With Gray And White Accents And Midcentury Modern Crystal Chandelier
This dining room mixes modern and glam, with gray and white print wallpaper and upholstered dining room chairs, a contemporary round dining table, custom window shades, and a gray painted tray ceiling with a midcentury modern crystal chandelier.
White Transitional Dining Room with Graphic Wallpaper
A weathered wood farmhouse table teams with tailored upholstered wingback chairs, creating a fun juxtaposition in this breezy dining room. Graphic wallpaper adds interest on the wall, while natural wood beams turn the ceiling into a focal point in its own right. A sputnik-style chandelier with a dark bronze finish brings an additional unexpected touch.
Eclectic Living Room With Purple and Yellow Furnishings
The fun Moroccan-style coffee table lights up making this living area the perfect party pad. The patent leather yellow sofa brings a punch of color to the space, and the circular cutout in the ceiling allows for the over-the-top purple crystal chandelier.
In front of a window partially covered by a shade and sage drape, an oversized cream-colored chair and ottoman sit, alongside a small side table with table lamp. Behind the chair, on the room's tan walls, hang three framed pictures of botanical prints.
