The home’s flow maximizes the abundant light that floods in from a long wall of windows. During the day, the overhead lights are rarely needed.
The homeowners love good food and good coffee, so a built-in Miele coffee machine and Bosch appliances were a priority. A large walk-in pantry anchors the corner of the kitchen.

The stained-concrete floor handles life with two young kids and a large dog. For the walls, gray paint with a hint of blue picks up the tones from the floor.
An antique Turkish runner mimics the hues in the soffit, contributing warmth and charm.
