A modern building often comes in simple and minimalist details that can be left empty as to emphasize the minimalistic or used to place the decorative stuff as maximizing the empty space available.
One of the examples of decorating a minimalist space is by using the tiles to cover the walls instead painting them. This will result the texture as a part of the space decorating only in less sophisticated ways. Built in Illinois the Wheaton Residence project designed by SWA Architects will show you a modern residence which provides the texture in each airy and spacious room available.
The main area of this gorgeous modern residence is a wide one which can be used as the borderless family room kitchen and dining room. The airy atmosphere is perhaps created from the use of white and light gray tone covering the walls and ceilings while the floors are painted in walnut with wooden accent.
This spacious area may appear wider than it should be from the arrangement of furnishings as built-in on the walls as for maximizing the wall space available. For example is the shelves and kitchen cabinetry which are available in wooden tone. As for the cabinetry rather than appear to be rustic and old the silver countertops and pullers provide the modern touch for this furnishing.
The family room provides stunning accent from the textured stone reaching the ceilings from the wooden mantel. The textured stone is made of stone pebbles and available in its natural tone of white and gray.
The textured gray tiles are used to cover some part of the walls and are applied not only on the family room but also the kitchen as well. This space has the gorgeous vault ceiling providing stunning appearance for this room as a whole.
The use of tiled walls as part of this gorgeous modern residence design is also seen on the bathroom sink. The blue tiles are used to cover one part of the wall creating an accent for a space dominated in white tone. This space appears to be contemporary from the choice of modern sleek sink with a simple rectangular mirror is hanging on the tiled wall.
Another option is the use of small tiles in white and beige nuance to cover one side of the walls in a feminine bathroom. The use of stunning wall lamps which provide the beautiful golden tone will be a suitable choice as well as the oval mirror hanging on the tiled wall.
