SCULPTING DREAMS INTO REALITY

MODERN MARVEL

2+

Modern architecture is almost impossible to define. At times, it can feature angles and planes of glass. At times, it means curves and color. While I am no architectural historian, I find the charm of a modern house rests in its flexibility.

One of our all-time favorite modern houses is the featured here. Personally, my favorite part is how the house works with its native environment. The white stucco and warm wood give it a distinctive Florida feel. While the planes of glass reflect the native landscape and gulf waters.

Inside, I love how it the land disappears from view on the second and third stories. The suspended glass curtain wall system in this house allows for all the panes of glass to line all sides of the room. The floor to ceiling effect combined with the height gives you the feeling of literally being on the water, you cannot even see the grass or beach. It's beyond cool.

I think one of modern architectures worst reputations is for being cold and without color. I suppose you could go that route if you want. But I have found that color is such a wonderful element in every home. Certainly a neutral background for your main exterior and interior colors is a good choice, but then throw bright colors into the interiors whenever possible. It adds so much personality to a home.

In this house, the interior designer, Barbara Gordon, did a great job mixing in the eye-catching primary and earth tone colors. It all combines to create a really great house that invites everyone to kick back and enjoy the sunsets.
