There is a fine line between ‘contemporary cool’ and ‘new but really weird’. The images below are of that first category: modern houses that come together really well to highlight all of the best things about contemporary architecture. I love this style because it always feels so clean and bright, and there’s so much that you can do with it. Bonus points to houses with water features out front – probably my favourite thing ever.
While I definitely encourage experimentation with contemporary exteriors, you have to be really careful to keep all of your materials in balance. One wrong choice can completely unbalance the beauty and make it look plain old peculiar. Even your landscaping can have an impact on how your house looks. Make it beautiful!
