Gray and Yellow Modern Home Exterior

Origionally, the owners of this modern California home opted for a monochromatic grey facade. However, to show their personality and accent the double canted roof, they decided to add a pop of yellow at the front and sides. Board form concrete comprises the base of the structure, which is left exposed rather than painted.

Modern House with Indoor-Outdoor Emphasis

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.

Open Concept Kitchen with Barstool Swings

The swings-as-barstools idea in this modern kitchen came from the family's travels – they saw similar swings in a bar and never forgot them. The kitchen was designed to be a fun space for the parents, their kids and their friends. Since they often entertain, the goal was to make the kitchen and living room one open, flexible space with an airy feel and a strong connection to the outdoor view.

Modern Master Bedroom with Outdoor Connection

This modern master bedroom opens onto a deck with pocket doors that fold away and create the illusion of being outside. The couple opted for sleek, low furnishings that emphasize the room's high ceilings. White walls and pale oak floors provide a neutral backdrop for art and accents that add layers of color and texture to the space.

Master Bathroom with Clean, Open Shower

The master bath in this modern home features doors that open directly to a back deck, with wood privacy barriers on the deck outside.

A play of texture and color creates a calming space to take solace and pause.
