6 Design Tips for the Modern Family

May 21, 2017

Builder Ezra Lee infuses his family’s new contemporary home with cutting-edge style and ultra-livable design.



1. Casual contemporary furnishings, texture-rich area rugs and lively pops of color relax the interior’s clean-lined design.



2. An opaque glass window looks like a backlit backsplash, letting natural light to flow into the kitchen while preserving privacy.



3. Fade and stain-resistant outdoor fabrics provide carefree style to the lower-level family room.



4. An indoor climbing wall serves as an active backdrop to a crossbridge, climbing ropes and foam pit in the activity-driven lower level.



5. Featuring a large pivot door, the main entry welcomes drop-by guests into a roomy, comfortable space without providing access or views into the more private spaces of the home.



6. Part laundry room and part lounge, this view-laden, versatile space features a washer-and-dryer area as well as a craft table, sitting area and TV.
