When you think of MODERN design, what impressions come to mind? It’s commonly thought that modern = cool or sterile. (Especially in a space that's quite large!) This stunning South Jordan, Utah, home, which stands at an impressive 10,000 sq. feet, proves that couldn’t be further from the truth.
MODERN = WARM & INVITING!
Through strategic use of texture and an organic/natural influence, this residence is cozy and welcoming — a perfect complement to the warm people who call this beauty home.
As soon as you open the front door, it’s clear that this home brings the stunning outdoors in. In fact, the stone that adorns the front exterior also wraps around and lines the entryway of the interior.
You’ll also find various other natural influences throughout, including gorgeous wood detail, plants, stone, and an earth-toned color scheme.
BRINGING THE OUTSIDE IN WITH TEXTURE
A great way to warm up the clean lines and geometric structure of a modern design is with texture. From bricks and wood to granite and metal, the strategically placed finishes add movement and a cozy feel to this home. They've even added water features to the organic mix! The lesson here: Don't be afraid to bring exterior elements IN!
Various beams and wall treatments were even made to look like concrete. Very cool!
LIGHT IT UP
Another way to brighten up a home? Windows!
So. Many. Wonderful. Windows.
We love the way these homeowners opted for minimal window treatments (electric roller shades), which they keep open most of the time. Not only do they allow natural light to flow freely in, they also treat the eyes to the gorgeous Utah surroundings!
THE FIXTURE IS IN
Various light fixtures throughout the home provide ample warm lighting, adding to the relaxing ambiance.
Isn’t this cabinet lighting in the bathroom a nice touch? It would be a great addition in a guest bath, as you could leave it on at night to guide guests without causing a distraction.
Of course, the chandelier above the tub isn't bad either. (Swoon!)
Don't be afraid to take risks with your light fixtures. Selecting pieces that make YOU happy will set your home apart from the rest and allow your personality to come shining through. Isn’t this linear light hanging above the two-story ceiling in the kitchen a cool statement piece?
The homeowners weren’t afraid to take risks with their lighting, and those risks pay off in a chic and unique way!

A NOTE FROM THE DESIGNER
I’m going to miss these homeowners and our regular encounters. After seeing them weekly for a year and a half, we've established a tremendous connection. I consider them dear friends of mine. That's the wonderful thing about an extensive design project like this. The designer and the homeowner(s) really get to know and understand one another, making it an exciting and rewarding process." --Denise Johnson, The Black Goose Design, Midvale, Utah
