1950s Family Home Receives Modern Makeover

Originally designed and built by architect Claus Moberg in 1952, this spacious home in Hollywood Lakes, Fla. needed to be renovated for modern homeowners. Thus, Annie Carruthers and team opened the interior and infused it with warm wood tones for a more contemporary floor plan.

Warm, Contemporary Curb Appeal

This beautiful contemporary home is the star of the neighborhood thanks to its warm, geometric design. Palm trees frame the front door for a dramatic entrance. 

Entry Features Wood Tones

A closer look at the home's front entrance reveals a pair of double doors in wood. Their warm nature easily complements the trim on the windows, while also adding natural texture to the smooth exterior. 

Wood-Infused Foyer

Those warm wood tones carry into the home's foyer, creating a natural flow between the indoors and out. A floating staircase and open-concept floor plan balance the material for a sleek aesthetic. 

Stylish Kitchen With Dual Islands

To the right, a stylish kitchen waits at the ready for meal-prep and entertaining. Here, twin islands double the storage space, while a blue tile backsplash and pendant lights add a dose of coastal color.

Open-Concept Living Area

The warm hardwood floors continue from the kitchen to the main living area, thus creating one cohesive design. Overhead, large panels overlap and add visual interest to the ceiling.

Chic Silver and White Bathroom

Gray and white striped tiles cover the floor, bathtub surround and the entire shower of the master bathroom, adding major appeal to the minimalist design. A delicate, purple chandelier hangs above the bathtub for a feminine touch and a pop of color. 

Backyard Includes Private Pool

A private swimming pool fits seamlessly into the backyard, with concrete pavers adding texture and pattern to the lawn. At the same time, the stone provides a smooth surface for lounge chairs.
