This cute modern home features a symmetric shape and soft blue siding. A natural hardwood deck is left open to expand the feel of the home and the yard. A large window from the kitchen takes a unique shape extending over the door and providing a connection to the light and modern style inside. Red chairs add a small touch of color to decorate the exterior.
A window-filled bedroom by McAlpine features floor-to-ceiling windows and the "elegance of a Parisian apartment," according to the book, "Poetry of Place: The New Architecture and Interiors of McAlpine." The room is designed by Betsy Brown. Bobby McAlpine is the architect.
As seen on Good Bones, designers Karen E. Laine and Mina Starsiak added walls to this home to bring in more natural light to the space, highlighting the elegant, industrial design these ladies pulled off in this dining room.
In this corner of the office, a leather Holly Hunt chair sits agains a brick wall under rays of sunlight. Surrounding this elegant chair are antique portraits and a collection of books on which a live orchid rests.
The focus of the interior of the home is on the view of the nature that surrounds it. Geometric windows on the front wall of the home allow in plenty of filtered sunlight and a prime view of the lot's design inspiration-the Live Oak Tree. A neutral color palette and stained concrete floors reflect the sunlight and make the space feel connected to the outdoors.
The custom railing, wood stair treads, beams, and stained beadboard ceiling treatments all collaborate in making this a successful updated brownstone. White walls add to the spacious feel of the design by keeping the room bright and airy. Neutral furniture in the sitting room blends beautifully with the floor and keeps a classic and timeless look to the design.
Pale pink brings the perfect sweet look to this girl's bedroom, but black details bring an unexpected pop of accent to the design. The wood shingle theme is tied in with scalloped awnings in the same style, bringing visual balance to the room.
Wood framed windows cast bright sunlight into this connected kitchen and dining space. Hardwood flooring and exposed beams create a cohesive design of wood detailing throughout the room. Patterned seat cushions and a throw rug below the kitchen sink add calm color accents to the design.
Natural light from the windows enhances the bright look of this bathroom. The large bathtub is nestled into this nook leaving open floor space and creating a cozy place to relax. White marble tile creates a polished and sophisticated look throughout the room. Crossed beams on the walls add subtle texture to the room without overpowering the design.
By using clean lines and blending natural and industrial materials, the space is both masculine and inviting. A wall of windows gives this compact loft a spacious feel by opening it to the outdoors and the gorgeous view. Wood details appear in each section of the open design with a wood dining table, wood barstools and wood cabinet below the television.
The neutral sofa in this pale blue sitting room is anything but plain. With its curvy shape and fringed bottom, it complements the curved window design. A skirted armchair, small end table and metallic floor lamp complete the look.
In front of the bay window, designer Ashley Yeates Lathrop created a sophisticated sitting area with a traditional-style chair and a tall side table with spiral legs. A coral-inspired lamp adds a beachy touch to this ocean-side guest suite.
This window design brings connection and functionality between the patio and living areas of the home. The large sliding window creates a dynamic space that can be opened up to accommodate more guests or just to enjoy the outdoors. The trees provide natural shade over a small patio and bamboo plants.
Just on the other side of the doors, light streams into this beautifully decorated hallway. A massive suzani textile hung as wall art provides all of the color and pattern this entryway needs, paired with the intricate geometric web traced by the shadows that the window design casts on the floor.
