For a classic, masculine spin, wooden taxidermy was made for the boys' room by tracing shapes to two-inch-thick cedar planks with a pencil, then cutting them out with a jigsaw, sanding and then adding a whitewashed finish for a clean look. Picture hanging wire is attached to the back for easy, level installation.

Stucco and Cedar Planking Give Modern Home's Exterior the Appearance of Sophistication and Restraint
Composed of crisply-detailed, considered materials, surfaces and finishes, the home is a balance of sophistication and restraint. The two-story massing is designed to allow for a bold yet humble street presence, while each single-story wing extends through the site, forming intimate outdoor and indoor spaces. The upper story is clad in stucco, articulated as a floating white box, light in appearance and also acting as a veritable “tree house” for the children’s bedroom zone. The knots in the exposed portion of the wood add a desired texture and contrast to the clean and minimal massing of the white stucco.
A colossal walk-in closet provides abundant storage for clothing and accessories. Cedar planks line the built-in shelves, helping to keeps the moths out. An island offers extra storage space and a surface for folding clothes.
This modern bathroom features a mixed use of hard and soft materials integrating the room's original cedar plank ceiling and beams with architectural windows. A lime green vanity countertop and backsplash add electric energy to the space.
The home's architecture was well planned to age beautifully. Rough-sawn, wide cedar planks on the outside of the buildings will weather to the soft gray of driftwood. The roof is zinc, and will get a pretty mottled patina with sun exposure.
