A Warm, Bright & Modern Family Home
Joe and Sarah Knight of blackLAB architects inc. open up their cool, contemporary family home. See how they converted a 1940s house into a sleek and modern space thats cozy, inviting and kid-friendly.
The original layout consisted of small, dark rooms, so an open floor plan was the first step to modernize the interior. Adding a courtyard with floor-to-ceiling windows to the back of the home helped bring in natural light. They also warmed up the black and white palette with walnut flooring and millwork, as well pops of playful color for the kids. These accents create a space that has all the elements of modern design – an open floor plan, a monochromatic palette – yet is beautifully livable.
