Sleek Desert Home With Swimming Pool

H3K Design gave this desert home a major overhaul; they opened the floor plan, replaced old carpeting with smooth tile floors and brought in some seriously stylish, modern furniture. Blue accent pieces and a swimming pool out back make the home feel like a hidden oasis.

In this midcentury great room, some of the original details were preserved such as the wood paneled ceiling. But with walls full of windows and a lighter color palette, the space is now so bright and inviting.

Before: Kitchen Overview

This kitchen was tiny and dark and needed to connect with the rest of the home.
