A Modern Miami Home midcentury-home-office

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.

C'mon haters. The adjective was a descriptive detail. If it had said " a young British family", would you have lashed out with your snide editorial questions?
Thank you DKOR for sharing this beautiful room and for sharing personalizing details of the family enjoying the room now.

Seriously? What significance does the ethnicity of the homeowner have to do with the design?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The previous photo shows the translucent doors that mark the entry to this office. Donadel added them to provide privacy yet still let in light from the living room. She also designed custom cabinetry to make sure the room worked for everyone, as the entire family uses this room for work, crafts and homework.Pops of yellow inside the shelves and cubbies add some bright color to the space. Dashes of color like this are also used in many of the other rooms.
Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to 7 Tips for Making Contractors Your Allies
Effectively communicate the timeline and deliverables. Before each of the contractor's respective phases begins, each party needs to have a realistic expectation of the time it will take to start and finish the task. Timelines can be compromised due to delays from preceding contractors. Proper time should be allotted to meet expectations and maintain the contractor's level of workmanship.
Reduce visual complexity. Visual complexity is a tricky thing to explain, but it's really important. To prevent cognitive overload when you're doing thoughtful work, it's important that your space not have too much going on visually. This space has moderate visual complexity, which is what you want to strive for. There's some stuff out and about, and some things to rest your eyes on while thinking, like the complex light fixture, but the room is free of clutter.
