What We Love: This urban contemporary home features dark and dramatic interiors with the use of wood elements for added warmth. The light fixtures used throughout the living spaces adds an elegant and glamorous touch. We are especially loving the living room with its walls of glass and brick clad fireplace surround… and the master bathroom is pretty spectacular as well. Loving the soaking tub with glass walls that invites nature inside. Overall, spectacular!

The framers created a box with the same reclaimed wood that is used on the front of the island. Plenty of cabinetry has been incorporated into this kitchen to keep clutter at bay. The flooring is polished concrete, with no color added.
