Home Project: Contemporary Home Design with Natural Elements

wood and metal contemporary home backyard

Contemporary design is all about letting go of the strict design rules and embracing a more relaxed, open and minimalistic approach to home design. It is defined by functionality, simplicity and subtle elegance. Natural and organic materials have also found their way into contemporary design style with the return of green living and the need to conserve earth’s natural resources. There is also a renewed interest in homeowners to find natural and sustainable building products. Including natural materials into a home exterior or interior can help you achieve a contemporary yet timeless design. This home project by Jaffa Group Design Build and K. Rocke Interior Designs achieves this goal in style. Located within a pristine and green area in Park City, Utah, this contemporary home blends in seamlessly with its beautiful surroundings using natural elements on the exterior of this home design.

The home exteriors incorporate a beautiful combination of stone, wood, and metal to easily blend in with their natural surroundings. The backyard also has dining and seating areas for an outdoor family time. This contemporary home design has an open floor plan where the kitchen, dining, and living areas share the same space. The master bedroom and the family room have a distinctly modern but comfortable feel. Moreover, all the guest bedrooms have attached bathrooms and are well-lit and spacious. Designed in bold colors, the kids’ bedroom has lots of space to play and have fun. The consistent use of wooden flooring and functional furnishings throughout the house gives it a natural and contemporary vibe.
