Colors and Design Elements Blend Natural Elements with Elements of Modern Design
This beautiful, eco modern kitchen is the focal point for the house. With natural elements, such as the live edge wood shelving, the natural green and yellow of the walls and the wood trim around the doors and windows, and the modern touches like the clean lines and smooth edges of the cabinets and the countertop, this design perfectly encompasses the homeowners' desire for a kitchen that reflects their love for nature as well as their attraction to the modern design style.
Tri-level decks make the most of this California home's outdoor space while adding living area for a modern family. Sliding glass doors on the top floor, pocket doors in the center and a roll-up garage door at ground level are flexible and fit with the home's unique, modern architecture. The bold pink, yellow and teal color palette reflects the fun personality of the owners.
In a go-big-or-go-home design approach, these homeowners paired bold color with bold texture for a fun, fresh kids bedroom. By using the space wisely, this room easily accommodates two twin beds with ample area for a play "yard" comprised of green carpet tiles.
Sunny Modern Kitchen With Yellow Wall Paint, Light Marble Countertops and Woodgrain Cabinetry
Bright yellow walls catch the natural and artificial light to create a bright atmosphere in the open floor design. Marble countertops and the woodgrain cabinet finish keep with the light and spacious look. Keeping the countertops and walls free of clutter accentuates the modern style and allows the surrounding mountain view to provide natural decor.
Wood Shelving Blends with Modern Kitchen to Create Eco Modern Design
The homeowners are very environmentally conscious, and, naturally, wanted that consciousness to show up in the design for their kitchen, so they insisted on a design that blended natural elements with modern elements to create an eco modern feel in their home. The design includes wood shelves with live edges to bring in some of the raw beauty of nature into the space, while the straight, clean lines of the cabinets and shelves add modern flair to this stylish kitchen.
Alex Ray, of Five Senses Art Consultancy, was inspired to illustrate a move away from technology back to the basics of communication through an installation of hand-cast bronze letters and ancient symbols, as seen at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2014. An overhead view from the staircase shows the letters tumbling down a white wall where dark brown hardwood floors are accented by a yellow carpet runner.
Light and Bright Open Concept Living Space With Exposed Beam Ceiling
Wall-to-wall sliding glass doors allow natural light to floor this living space, while also providing access to the outdoor pool and patio areas. The exposed beam ceiling adds a Southwestern touch, while natural hardwood floors finish the look of the space.
Bold, yellow contemporary cabinets and stainless steel stove appliance juxtapose nicely with the original pine flooring in this modern kitchen. The removal of a wall between the kitchen and dining room provides for a bigger spot to entertain.

Lavish Seating Area by Designer Shelly Riehl David
Black and yellow damask chairs surround a round, black leather ottoman in this space from designer Shelly Riehl David. The chandelier is highlighted by a mirrored inset with white ornate frame. Ample seating and luxury appointments help make for formal but comfortable space for relaxing and conversation.
Soft Yellow Open Plan Kitchen With Nearby Dining Area
This kitchen features a yellow accent wall and brown wooden cabinets. Blue pendant lights hang above the kitchen island, while the nearby dining area boasts a wooden table. Exposed beam ceilings throughout and countertop succulent plants add a Southwestern feel.
In the master bedroom, color-blocked drapes have a strong personality that's softened by playful art. The color combination carries over from the window treatment to the walls, lending incredible structure and visual interest to the design.
