Modern style tends to be minimal, so it is important to choose the details with care so that the design has personality. Lighting, tile, and custom wallpaper are just the sort of important elements that I used to make this home special. Flooring and wall color are also vital in a clean design. The walls are a soft grey to add some warmth, set against the cool North-facing floor-to-ceiling windows. The backsplash tile is recycled glass in an uncommon size, which adds an organic element to the otherwise slick space. In the bathrooms we laid tile in interesting patterns to add additional effect and even hung custom wallpaper to the powder bath where steam wasn’t a concern.
