Before: New Construction
Busy attorneys Caroline and Kevin are building their dream house from scratch. They love the way the exterior of the home is coming together, but unfortunately the interior doesn't match up. They want a space that is great for entertaining and brings in their love of the outdoors. They'd also like it to match the exterior of the home's modern style, and they want to use as much natural material as possible. Because the floor plan is open and big, the couple wants this large area to serve as a living/dining room and still leave enough room for a pool table.

By blending modern style with natural elements into a multifunctional living space, the homeowners dream home is now a reality. The use of natural materials warms the cool contemporary design of the home and comfortably brings the outdoors inside.
