The dark slate walls create a visual contrast indoors even as decor rugs and accessories usher in bright pops of color in a restrained fashion. The lower level houses the living area along with the family room kitchen and dining space while the bedrooms and bathrooms sit on the top floor.
The dining room and the kitchen embrace the muted color scheme of the living area with additions such as the Series 7 chairs and industrial-style lighting providing some much needed visual contrast. The unfinished texture of the walls also helps in breaking away from the monotony with a small nursery bedroom and bathroom completing this breezy home.
The use of cane for the false ceiling also creates some unique lighting patterns both during the daytime and after sunset. Beautiful pendants and dreamy ambient lighting add to the mesmerizing atmosphere inside the renovated beach house that fuses form and functionality in a creative contemporary fashion.

This incredible cabin was featured in the new Taschen book “Cabins” by Philip Jodidio and it’s easy to see why. Originally a boathouse that held boats and fishing gear the structure dates back to the 18th century. It was reinterpreted by TYIN tegnestue Architects to be a cozy modern getaway.
Located in Austin the was originally built in the 1970s with a ramp-like entryway that stretched 25 feet down from the street level to the living area below. When time came to revamp and redesign this old dreary structure into a cool contemporary residence the architects used a fabulous rooftop garden as the entrance to the house which sits elegantly at the street level. This new entrance offers ample privacy while giving the home sweeping views of Lake Austin from the newly built 160’-long cantilevered deck.
The decor inside the home seems to showcase a seamless blend of the vintage the midcentury and the contemporary as each room has a subtle touch of contrasting styles. A small entry leads into the living room that is filled with a couple of cozy sofas in off-white along with a smart blue rug that brings color and playfulness to the setting. The restrained use of color lets the few accent additions and the wall art shine through while the twin windows fill the space with plenty of natural light.
