The preference of clients to build mid-century modern homes has become prevalent and is here to stay. The exterior style of these homes is designed with flat or hipped roofs, stone and stucco exterior finishing’s, along with an added touch of wood elements. Windows are constructed taller and grander bringing in sought after natural light. Elements of nature are brought into the interior, with natural finishes such as smooth stone tile or slabs, wood features, crowned with a fireplace that has become the centrepiece in a space that is dominated by horizontal lines. Rooms are stunning, featuring tall ceilings that may have open beams and wood features. Kitchen islands have become art pieces designed with horizontal lines such as a waterfall edge or thicker island countertop cantilever over a seating area. Adding large sliding patio doors melds the interior and patio space into one. Finally, the addition of historic furniture such as an Eames chair beautifully brings the leathers and woods into your home. These design features are today’s modern twist on mid-century design, bringing nature indoors.
