New Addition With Midcentury Appeal

A large overhang and warm ipe cladding give this new addition a hint of midcentury style. At the same time, sliding glass doors create a smooth transition into the family room.

Light-Filled Family Room

Inside, guests will find a midcentury family room with a collection of furniture classics: an Italian leather sofa, a wicker egg chair, a natural wood coffee table and a modern light fixture. An area rug softens the floors, while windows fill the room with natural light.

Bold, Black Tile Wall Treatment

On either side of the mounted TV, black tile becomes a bold wall treatment. Matching armchairs in teal give the space a touch of symmetry as well.

Reading Area With Reclaimed Breezeblock

In this little reading area, a wicker egg chair offers a cozy spot to curl up with a book. Its enviable position near the window is sure to be the best seat in the house.

Secret Kid's Nook

Kids love secret play spots, and adults love to tuck the mess out of sight. A play nook may just be the best invention ever; even a small space can provide a world of possibilities to kids and their imaginations.

Patio With Modern Fire Pit

On the patio, four cushioned chairs and a modern fire pit allow for year-round entertaining. While the kids play on the lawn, the owners and their friends can exchange casual conversation.

Exterior Includes Ipe Cladding

From the side, guests can really see how the ipe cladding warms the home's crisp white exterior. The reclaimed breezeblock adds visual interest as well.

Neutral Hues Smart for Warm Climate

If you keep the exterior, trim and accent colors on your home light and neutral, you can put any color you desire on the front door. A rich wood tone works great here. This is a smart color scheme for a home in a warm climate, as lighter hues reflect the sun's rays and keep the space cool.
