Modern Dining Room With Industrial Influence Featuring Black Chairs, Frosted Glass Paneled Door and Gray Stone Floor
An open gray stone floor gives an industrial influence to this spacious dining area at the foot of the stairs. Black chairs are a strong contrast to the white table, but they blend well with the room through the gray touches. A marbled look on the stairs creates an attractive differentiation from the floor.
Contemporary Exterior With Frosted Glass Garage Door
Exterior lighting mounted underneath the roof overhang gives the house a warm, welcoming glow. A frosted glass garage door lets in filtered natural light during the day and blends in with the home's black grid windows when illuminated at night.
Contemporary Exterior With Stacked Limestone Siding
Mismatched windows with black frames give this home a unique, contemporary look. Low-growing shrubs and minimal landscaping keep with the clean look of the exterior. A frosted glass garage door matches the windows to blend in with the rest of the exterior.
Custom Steel Bi-Fold Doors and Frosted Glass Add Privacy to Noho Loft's Street Level Entry
The Noho Duplex in New York City has street level entry. With the windows on the front exterior of the space, this left little room for privacy in the home's previous design. The homeowners wanted an industrial feel for their home, so they wanted to stick with a more modern design and didn't want the clutter of having to hang curtains to get privacy, so designers created a two-fold privacy plan. First, they replaced the homes existing windows with frosted paned windows to obscure the view from the street. Then, they added custom fabricated, full height, glazed steel bi-fold doors with frosted glass panels to create a sort of "foyer" in the space. These doors are retractable, so once the family is in for they night, they can fold up the doors and enjoy the open spaces in their home.
