Modern design is sleek and clean with large open spaces that can feel aloof and unwelcoming if done incorrectly. On the other hand, if done well, a modern home can still have the open floor plan and clean lines while being inviting and warm. A great example of a welcoming modern design is this Fallen Maples home.
The contemporary exterior features an uncluttered design with expansive windows to let in the view of a woodland meadow. Keeping the home at two stories, along with the wood siding, helps it blend into the forested surrounding. On top of being aesthetically pleasing this home is also 4-star built green certified making it eco-friendly inside and out.
The interior space in unencumbered by walls but still features distinct areas for the living room, dining room and kitchen. The cabinets and wood trim come from trees that were harvested onsite. It doesn’t get much more local than that.
Not every space is wide-open. A rustic wood screen next to the front door creates an entryway and maintains the privacy of the larger interior space.
If you like the fresh look of a modern interior but don’t want the home to feel like an art museum then there are ways to design a home that is both uncluttered and inviting. Let the experts at Gelotte Hommas design you a home that fits your personal design needs.
