MN Custom Homes – Tour Home Living Room
Tell us about the Tour home – particularly any aspects that make it “modern” in terms of design or finishes. Is there one unique or outstanding feature that is particularly special?
The inspirational concept behind this home was to seamlessly combine practicality and serene interior design, featuring a warm color palette and a selection of exceptional material choices.
The home’s primary focal points are brought to life through the incorporation of natural stone, quartz, and porcelain slabs. You’ll find distinctive, one-of-a-kind patterns in the stone used for both fireplaces, the kitchen backsplash, and the powder room’s waterfall slab vanity. The integration of various stone types and colors lends depth and dimension to the living space, creating an inviting and timeless ambiance. Throughout the home, different hard surface materials echo the sandy hues of travertine, infusing warmth, tranquility, and coziness into every corner. Wood slats make an appearance in select areas, introduced through tile and patterned millwork, enhancing the concept of simplicity and visual equilibrium. To add a touch of elegance, brass-colored light fixtures and hardware act as exquisite accents, providing a glistening golden contrast to the dreamy material finishes.

What are your thoughts on contemporary homes in general – how does MN “push the boundaries” of contemporary design?
Contemporary homes offer a dynamic canvas for creative expression, with their emphasis on clean lines, open spaces, and the integration of modern technology. At MN we like to “push the boundaries” of contemporary design using innovative materials, smart technology and incorporating textured surfaces that add depth and character to the interior.
Our interpretation of a contemporary twist on the ‘mid-century modern’ design ethos incorporates oversized tiles and strategically integrates wooden slats through the use of patterned millwork and tiling in specific areas of the home. This approach underscores the concept of simplicity and visual equilibrium.
