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.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The artwork draws the eye upward and fits the space perfectly. "We needed something bold that could stand up to the scale of the wall," says Donadel. "Each panel of this triptych is 60 inches by 60 inches."Floors throughout the home are covered in Kerlite, which is a very thin porcelain. "This is a great product that comes in 48-inch by 48-inch by one-sixteenth-inch pieces. Though we didn't do it here, it can be laid atop existing flooring," says Donadel. "It's very durable, easy to maintain and it has a seamless look." Art: Blue Movement, commissioned via Art Design Resources; dining table: two bases by Minotti with custom glass top
Judith Taylor Designs added this to How to Work With a High Ceiling
Add art. But keep it large scale. Pick pieces with bold subject matter that are best admired from across the room. They will work beautifully in this unexpected placement.I just love how the cobalt blue in the paintings here complements the yellow-orange in the paintings below. This sense of connection makes the towering area feel more intimate.
Becky Harris added this to Cobalt Gets the Red Carpet Treatment
Cobalt artwork steals the scene. All of the furnishings in this chic Miami home are calm and neutral, which draws the eye up to this energetic cobalt triptych. Triptych: "Blue Movement," via Art Design Resources
