The one-of-a-kind Toybox Home is the result of two guys running into each other at a Chicago reclaimed materials store. Frank Henderson, a music student, met Paul Schultz, a designer, and the two decided to design and construct a tiny house where Henderson could live while in school. It was created with the concept that home should be a fun place inspiring creativity while also providing peace of mind. The home’s exterior features include an energy efficient thermoplastic roof plane (TPO), natural cedar siding and colorful corrugated fiberglass.
The two-color exterior of this towering modern home give the design both depth and dimension. Easily maintained and minimal landscaping complements the bold lines of the home while keeping the space feeling clean and refined.
A canary yellow front with a green door mat is a bright and bold entrance to this striking modern home. Multicolor wood paneled exterior walls adds a neutral, craftsman look alongside the bright blocks of color.
Dramatic Front Doorway with Stained Glass and Pendant Lighting
A dramatic archway composed of wood slats and iron frame blend beautifully with a vibrant stained glass door in this front entry. Painted concrete containers sunken into the ground create a pretty space for planting while leveling out a sloped walkway.
Hawaiian Backyard Features Roomy Lanai, Custom Pool
A spacious, columned lanai overlooks an infinity-edge pool and lush, tropical gardens in the backyard of this luxurious home in Omao, on Kauai's sunny south side. Dense tropical foliage gives the home privacy and frames the view of the mountainous Hawaiian landscape.
Yellow Cottage Exterior with Blue Porch and Shutters
The exterior gets a color-themed upgrade, going from plain, flat white to a pale yellow with soft blue accents. The concrete porch is painted blue to match the new custom shutters and a single French door is added along with a new porch swing and outdoor furniture. The existing columns get dressed up with sash curtains.
Colorful glazed concrete blocks brighten the wall as visitors approach the front door of this modern beach house. Underfoot, large concrete pavers are situated in a bed of loose river pebbles, carving out a walkway.
