This is not to say that a modern home cannot have pops of color or added character through decor. It is just that it needs to be done in a manner that adds to the architecture rather than takes away from it.
There are numerous examples of successful meshing of these two, seemingly opposing, styles together into one cohesive design. Look to the image below— it’s a exemplary illustration of a modern and traditional union. The mixture of cedar shingles with modern structural elements creates a very unique and appealing home.
The view from the house is of the pool area, and from this window, it is of the concrete and wood structure that provides privacy. The lounging area is completely shielded from the landscape, offering the utmost in privacy to this end of the pool.
Beyond the pool area, the house makes the most of its surroundings by using native plant materials that not only fit with the landscape, but are also very low maintenance. This is particularly good for dry summers when native plantings are sturdier. The concrete construction uses a large amount of glass to capitalize on the views and bring plenty of light into the interior of the home.
