Designing a Landscape to Match a Mid-Century Modern Home
Imagine stepping outside your mid-century modern home into a beautifully designed outdoor space that perfectly complements your interior decor. For one modern young family with two small children, this vision became a reality in a recent landscape design project. In this blog post, we’ll explore the challenges faced by the family before the project, the goals they wanted to achieve, the design elements incorporated into the project, and the final outcome.
Before the installation, the yard was exposed to the street, lacked a gathering space, and didn’t provide a safe area for their kids to play. The main aim of the project was to build a luxurious yet functional outdoor space that matched the client’s style and needs while enhancing the beauty of their mid-century modern home.
The upper planting area uses native trees for low maintenance and future screening of the upper property, while the lower woodland area boasts native plants. The project prioritized craftsmanship, particularly with the entry raised planter and walkway and the woodland dry stream with bridge rock. To enhance the luxurious feel of the space, we added subtle lighting fixtures and created cozy seating areas where the family could relax and entertain guests.
The end result is a modern, luxurious outdoor space that perfectly complements the client’s mid-century modern home. “The design exceeded our expectations, and we’re thrilled with how it turned out. It truly feels like an extension of our home,” says the client.
In conclusion, the landscape design project for this modern young family aimed to create a functional yet stylish outdoor space that matched their stunning mid-century modern interior. Investing in a well-designed landscape not only enhances the beauty and functionality of a home but also adds significant value.
