A Modern Miami Home contemporary-kids
 

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 blue stuff on the wall - To me, that looks just like braille. Is that what it is? Never saw it like that before.

post question - Could you please take the race of the couple off this post? It is so insulting and totally unnecessary to put the race of your clients on your post...but.the design is fabulous!

I believe that bit of information is totally relevant. As an architect, I find that a client's nationality (not race) could sometimes be very indicative of their aesthetic.

I would certainly hope and anticipate they would be proud. If "Mexican" was swapped out for "American" do you still think it should be removed ? I am American. Both are good things. Thank you

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The eldest boy's room is futuristic, cool and fun. It gets a loads of bright blue color from painted Inhabit textured wall flats, an FL/Y pendant lamp and an Eero Arnio Ball Chair. The wrapping theme is continued from the floor up the wall and across part of the ceiling. The occupant's favorite thing? The bright green headphones. "My clients were very scared, but their complete trust let us accomplish this project together," says Donadel. Their leaps of faith resulted in a unique and beautiful home that works for their family. Donadel is now working on transforming the yard. We look forward to seeing it when it's done.

3. Modern, Entertaining Home in FloridaThis Florida home proves that modern and minimalist don't necessarily mean sparse. Color makes its presence known in each room. Yellow office shelving, blue and orange art, a chartreuse children's room and the fun teen room shown here all help bring the clean-lined home to life.
