If you are not familiar with what a Mid-century modern home is, allow me to give you some idea. For a Mid-century modern style, its emphasis is on pared-down forms, contemporary patterns, and natural materials. You can also observe that it would have a seamless flow between indoors and outdoors combining function, comfort and chic style. Organic and the man-made items are combined together in the house which we will see the house we will feature today.

Dexter Residence is located in Austin, Texas that has a warm and inviting mid-century modern design. The look of this house connects the past with the present with simple volumes, clean lines and a tastefully selected palette using stucco, concrete and glass. This single story residence has a flat roof and clerestory windows. It also features a clean concrete walkway leads up to the home and adds to a great curb appeal. The interior of the house demonstrate beautiful forms and functional design. There is a great harmony in the living, kitchen and dining areas.

The interior has a bright and airy feel with its sun-drenched spaces flooding with light since it used white walls and clerestory windows. The exterior of the house has a sleek line with geometric design. This house is designed by Stuart Sampley Architect who did an amazing job for this project. I like how they did the exterior as well as that wooden cube that separates the living and dining areas while functioning as a storage space. How about you, what do you love most about this house?
