Think of space-saving interiors we often imagine quirky desks that disappear into the wall Murphy beds that only come out at night and uber-creative shelving which seamlessly blends into the backdrop. But there are times when smart utilization of available square footage is all you need to create a space-savvy home that serves the needs of a modern family.
The deck becomes a part of the living room visual giving it a more expansive vibe. A contemporary kitchen with black island and cabinets adds contrast to the open living in white while sliding glass doors bring in a flood of natural light.
Internal partitions on the living level are completely done away with as the kitchen and dining area create an interactive social hub. It is a wood and white color scheme that holds sway inside with an innate sense of minimalism apparent throughout.
Wood is the primary material of choice on the inside with the office oozing a distinct modern style with edgy industrial overtones. Specifically designated workspaces are combined with sweeping meeting zones which include both formal and informal ones.

As the day passes and seasons wax and wane the interior changes ever so subtly because of varying natural light even as the rest of the home remains distinctly minimal and stoic. Sporadically used arm wooden surfaces gently interrupt this concrete monotony while blue accents make a rare appearance in the bedroom.
