Stretched across a ridge in Austin's Spanish Oaks neighborhood, this contemporary Hill Country home was designed to overlook the valley below. The special feature of this home, the exterior entry, is a great combination of unique forms in rustic stone and smooth glass where you can see right into the house and out the back. The seamless blending of the exterior and interiors is accomplished by the exterior materials running right through the space and out the back, only separated by a full wall of glass at entry and back of foyer.
Bay Windows Brighten Newly Remodeled Open Plan Kitchen
To make this kitchen seem lighter and brighter, Chip and Joanna, of HGTV's Fixer Upper, made good use of the bay windows. By removing curtains and allowing plenty of natural light into the space, the neutral white color palette reflects the light, creating a bright, open, inviting kitchen with plenty of prep space and seating.
This family of five needed a kitchen that fit their active lifestyle. The main goal of the kitchen remodel was to create an open plan that flows into the dining room and home office. Slate tile flooring and shared cabinetry connects the kitchen and home office, which also functions as the kids' homework center.
Modern Dining Room Creates Statement Piece in Home's Main Space
The dining room in this open concept home stands as a statement piece in the main space. The dining set-a white, modern table and contrasting black chairs-and pendant lights draw the eye out the wall of windows to the beautiful view below the apartment.
