01 ARS IDEA – Modern Cottage The living room is stuffed with uniquely detailed furniture choices, like these contemporary armchairs and button tufted sectional, wrapped around a glass and metal coffee table. The mosaic area rug brings a burst of color to the space. Here’s a close look at one of the wireframe chandeliers above the living room area. From here we can see the high contrast between dark wood flooring and lighter wood walls. Viewed in the opposite direction, we see the kitchen area illuminated beneath a massive window. The rich hardwood flooring connects the far ends of this space and unifies the color palette. The bathroom is a bright burst of white in the home, with large format tiles wrapping the walls. The glass walk-in shower, floating vanity, and upper level window all enhance the modern look. The master bedroom is absolutely awash in rich natural wood, even across the ceiling. This space is the warmest on the upper floor, reflecting the open plan first floor most closely. Each bedroom is large enough to house a sitting area. This one features the most bold example of color in the home, with a bright red armchair and patterned drapes splashing across the neutral palette of the walls. The second bedroom boasts rich wood paneling in the corner, contrasting the neutral tone of the concrete walls and bringing warmth into the room. An artful chandelier supplements the lighting of a pair of sharp angled sconces. The dining room furniture evokes the home’s mixture of modern and traditional elements perfectly: natural wood construction meets sharp angled contemporary style on the chairs and table alike. The staircase is wrapped with glass balustrades and the same rich wood as the walls of the lower floor. This creates a continuity as one moves up toward the private bedroom areas. The bedroom also hosts a few idiosyncratic art pieces on the walls, in addition to a truly unique hanging sphere chair near the window. Touches like this add abundant personality to the modern space. The kitchen contrasts from the rest of the open area, with dark tile flooring, black cabinetry, and light grey walls. Upper cupboards feature glass doors for a striking contemporary look. The living room hosts this unique freestanding fireplace, acting as a natural heater and supplementing the larger wall unit. This touch of ultra-modern design helps foster the timeless look of the home. The open plan layout means that a wealth of options are available within these walls. To the left of the massive fireplace wall stands the dining room area, defined by a lengthy natural wood table and set of wireframe chandeliers. Here’s one of the bedrooms, where we see minimalist concrete walls meeting sharp natural wood beams. The furniture reflects the detailed look of the pieces found on the lower level, with subtle elements of color.
