Our clients loved the nature and lifestyle of being in the suburbs but also desired the modern and contemporary designs that are found in the city. So when they asked us to design a home for them to retire in, we wanted the space to bring together the best of both worlds. This retreat home (which was featured in Woodlands Lifestyle and Homes!) is a modern, efficient, no-frills space. It was designed to be functional and family-friendly but definitely isn’t light on the luxurious details.
City Meets Suburbs
Though the exterior is more traditional (typical of a suburban neighborhood), the interior is a bit of a surprise. It’s the perfect blend of crisp white walls (which allows their art to pop!), bold unexpected prints and lots of color. The sleek design centers on functional spaces – like the cool media playroom for their grandkids. And instead of having a formal dining room, they chose to focus on a kitchen and breakfast area they all could enjoy.
We also wanted to make sure that the couple had a luxurious space of their own in the house. So for the master bedroom’s sitting area, we created a spa-like retreat with crisp white walls, soft layers, and a soothing, cool color palette. The serene layers of textures and prints make this spot feel like a real getaway!
So, let’s take a peek into this modern, contemporary home that brings the city-life to the suburbs.
