The exterior of this home was inspired by the color of a live oak leaf. The use of natural colors helps tie the home to its natural surroundings.

Modern Bachelor's Living & Dining Room With High Ceilings

While designing this modern bachelor's country home, designer Felicia Foster wanted the elements themselves to be the focal point. "We minimized on the design side so the materials could speak for themselves."

Minimally decorated walls provide the perfect canvas for this comfortable living room with beautiful views of the surrounding outdoors. The natural light which flows into the space enhances the warm wooden details in this minimalist space.

The design of this modern great room keeps things simple by sticking with the basics and letting them stand on their own. The open floor allows the furnishings and outdoor views to be the visual focus.

Modern Kitchen and Dining Room with Natural Wood Table

After moving out of a cramped city apartment, the homeowner wanted a functional place to cook and eat. The kitchen island is a workhorse with its built-in storage for cookbooks and wine, while the industrial look of the wood and sleek waterfall countertop blend with the rustic dining table and surrounding outdoor views.

Island Provides Book Storage in Contemporary Kitchen

The island in this contemporary kitchen was created as a hub for people to gather around and was made to look like a cube that rose out of the concrete. Since the homeowner didn't want to use stools, it also provides ample storage space on both sides.

Small Modern Kitchen with Quartz Countertops

Because this home is all about simplicity and efficiency, designer Felicia Foster used open wood shelving for display and storage in the kitchen that matches the light-colored cabinets. The earth-toned walls, backsplash and quartz countertops contrast the cabinets and appliances and mirror the views outside.

Whether you want to play, work or relax this room has a spot for everything. Designer Felicia Foster this space to work as efficiently as possible, so she added a compact desk, a pinball machine and a comfortable sofa to make this a multipurpose area.

Clean style and sleek lines in this modern master bedroom let the rugged furniture showcase itself. "Everything played on the next thing. There was nothing that we did in the house that was only for the look," says designer Felicia Foster.

Modern Bathroom With Industrial Look

Wall-mounted sinks and frameless shower doors create an industrial look in this bathroom. Leaving pipes exposed adds another modern touch and offers more room than a traditional vanity.

Back Patio with Limestone Fireplace

The firebox in this outdoor fireplace was placed higher than normal for optimum warmth against the southern breezes coming across the field. The fireplace is clad in Texas limestone.

Modern Home with Country Accents

Because of the "soupy" soil conditions, the foundation of the house was built specifically to keep it afloat."The house had to be designed so that it was like a box so it would sit on top of the ground," designer Felicia Foster says. The gravel landscaping was also instrumental in preventing drainage areas from impacting the home.
