You may love to give a country feel to your contemporary house. Applying wood textures is one way to achieve that. Incorporating textures of wood within your indoor and outdoor spaces takes both, excellent designer’s eyes and quality home furnishing skills. Here are some ideas you may be inspired from.
Create a Rustic Look to a Contemporary Backyard
This outdoor space is perhaps what everyone shall inspire from a contemporary house. Surrounding the backyard with walls made of wood planks is clever yet pretty simple. Standard carpentry skill should do the job. Similarly, arrays of planks arranged in such a way—dividing the yard asymmetrically—give a touch of flair to the overall design of the yard.
A plywood-layered barbeque pit warms the space, in addition to its actual functionality. All in all, a combination of various wood textures, stone pebbles, outdoor bushes and succulents, at a glance, portrays a rustic feel to this contemporary house.
Feel Warm & Cozy with Just The Right Lightings & Furniture
When you have such a huge space, pick some spots to set up a gathering area, or simply a small, cozy relaxation corner. Here, your furniture selection matters. Build your own hardwood table for your outdoor family dining area. And, for that cozy corner right there, pick out singles of rattan sofa with pillows of contrasting, light colors.
Amplify the warm and cozy ambience with an apt choice of lightings. Low-wattage, orange bulbs hung in strings across the top, with some fluorescent-light poles along the wooden pathway, illuminate this outdoor space in the evenings.
Get Creative with Outdoor Walls & Corners
Be creative with the walls. Instead of simple straight walls, give more by building in wood benches and planters off the walls. These extra features provide flexibility for you, your family and guests to wander and have a nice conversation at any convenient spot.
Mind Your Outdoor-to-Indoor Transition
Transitioning from your outdoor to indoor space, the similar wood-theme patio may be applied. As you can see, from back patio layered by wood planks to indoor kitchen space with wood-textured vinyl flooring, this contemporary house has indeed been consistent in its urban design.
Dare to Contrast with Two Color Tones
Inside, simplicity is featured through the use of dual color tones: white and wood color. From the kitchen cabinets and drawers, fridge and countertop, to the white ceiling and walls, their color compliment the other, wood-textured furnishing.
Stay Consistent Throughout the Hallway
Towards the hallway, you shall be inspired with its clean and consistent design. Applying wood-textured vinyl flooring even on the staircases and their landings, the dual-color theme is firmly incorporated with white walls, predominantly white painting and glass railings.
Add a Touch Of Personality in the Rooms
Again, consistent application of dual tone of white against wood-textured flooring is portrayed inside the rooms on the second floor. However, design flares give an extra ‘umph’ depending on the nature of the rooms. Tiled corner wall of shades of grey for the bedroom, and hexagonal, white- and teal-colored tiles in the shower. A touch of personality with unique pictures could not go wrong, too.
Sum It All Up with Wood-Textured, Open Balcony
Finally, a living area extending to an outdoor, open balcony—with, again, wood-textured flooring and wood railings outside—re-emphasizes consistency and firmness of design throughout this contemporary house.
Notice the thoughtful selection of carpets with strikingly contrasting red and blue colors, and the choice of an outdoor, wood-colored, hexagonal coffee table? What a showcase of ingenuity displayed throughout the whole urban oasis!Share
