A Modern Miami HomeContemporary Living Room, Miami
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:
Make a material change. The juxtaposition of wood paneling (horizontal to keep it modern) and stone breaks up the wall on the left.Pick a material to repeat and use it to break up an expansive wall. It's beautiful how the wood tones on the wall echo the wood tones of the flooring here.
I'm a bachelor who made a lot of money in technology. I let my designer pick out everything, and I can control it all from my iPad.
The design moved some rooms around and opened up the floor plan. Past the front foyer, the home opens up into this living and dining space. It was extended out the back beyond the column as part of the renovation, because the clients needed a dining table that would seat 14 people. "The clients entertain all the time," says Donadel. "My client is like Martha Stewart; she always has a beautifully set table." Donadel differentiated the two spaces with a dramatic change in floor texture. The dining room floor is elevated and has lighting underneath the platform. Stone wall: Vena Grigio limestone; chandelier: Atlantis Suspension Light, Tarzani
