Contemporary Courtyard is Minimalist, Sophisticated
The Oak Court home in Dallas, Tex., features a simple yet elegant courtyard, perfect for entertaining. Ferns are planted along the entry wall for softness, but the the real showstopper is a sleek water feature with jets that light up at night.
Sleek and sophisticated, this contemporary kitchen features neutral walls and cabinetry with a textured look. The minimalist design carries through to the dining area, where an elegant chandelier adds a touch of glamour.
A wall of glass separates the tiled, walk-in shower of this contemporary California bathroom from a sleek, sophisticated freestanding tub. A glass exterior wall joins the room to the outdoors and offers a view of a tiny private courtyard. Modern tile swathes the shower floor and continues to the ceiling for extra impact.
Designer Ana Donohue defines this contemporary living room as "Bermuda in the city," as it suggests a subdued glamor with its soft color palette and minimalist approach. The unusual shade of blush in the grass cloth wallpaper sets the tone for the room and allows the club chairs to make a strong, ultra-sophisticated statement. The mirror and the opaque glass chandelier add yet another modern touch.
