MODERN COURTYARD HOME
The owners of this Kirkland home wanted a design that was welcoming and full of life, while maintaining a look of timelessness and the ability to accommodate a growing family. The walkway leading up to the front doors is inviting, and the different materials provide a fun yet subtle variance of color. The back of the house has an all-gray exterior that lets the modern design speak for itself along with a covered deck area perfect for outdoor dining. The rest of the backyard is designed to take advantage of the abundant space and allows for plenty of outdoor living throughout the year.
Inside, high ceilings and the clerestory windows create an illusion that extends the ceiling even higher. Direct access to the deck through the glass doors opens the space even further and seamlessly connects one room to another. The large kitchen island is a perfect area to gather around for special occasions or for daily activities like homework for the kids. Keeping efficiency in mind, the kitchen is well equipped with plenty of storage space as well as natural light throughout with the many windows and glass door. A neutral color palette is modernized with glossy finishes, a subway tile backsplash, and stainless appliance accents. The master bathroom is a light-filled space with a large bathtub, spacious shower, and tile backsplash with a modern finish and every convenience to make this a room of leisure.
