A Modern Miami Home modern-living-room

A Modern Miami Home

A young Mexican couple approached us to create a streamline modern and fresh home for their growing family. They expressed a desire for natural textures and finishes such as natural stone and a variety of woods to juxtapose against a clean linear white backdrop.

For the kid’s rooms we are staying within the modern and fresh feel of the house while bringing in pops of bright color such as lime green. We are looking to incorporate interactive features such as a chalkboard wall and fun unique kid size furniture.

The bathrooms are very linear and play with the concept of planes in the use of materials.They will be a study in contrasting and complementary textures established with tiles from resin inlaid with pebbles to a long porcelain tile that resembles wood grain.

This beautiful house is a 5 bedroom home located in Presidential Estates in Aventura, FL.

The lamps in the ceiling? - Where are they from and how much are they? Do you buy them individually or is it a package deal?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Once the more open plan brought in a modern feel, Donadel needed to add in the warmth. "We cozied up the space with a careful balance of materials," says Donadel. "Using very clean sharp lines keeps things from looking cluttered." Case in point: To keep it as clean lined as possible, the glass railing you see upstairs has a support system hidden within the floor. Here, a sharp line between a limestone wall and more Plyboo wood differentiates the two floors. The wood continues up the wall and across the ceiling. "The element of wrapping is an important one we carried throughout the house, to give things continuity," explains Donadel.
