Outdoor Design for Your Home, 4 Inspirational Photos

Outdoor Design for Your Home, 4 Inspirational Photos

A good exterior can make or break the living arrangements in your home. While North Hem?s design rules, inspiration, and product lines often focus on the interiors, we like to take some time to enjoy inspirational exteriors here as well.

The following pictures are inspirational for many a home. While some are a little more modern and less Scandi or Mid-Century modern, we think you will agree that they are all rather striking.

A Beautiful Desert Exterior

This beautiful desert exterior surrounds an interesting, if exotic, display of 20th Century modern design. While the neutral colours and geometric lines match our design, the stark concrete-like building materials makes for a rather austere feel that works well with a desert environment.

Modern Home with Beautiful Pavers

This modern home fits more with our contrasting neutral colours, geometric shapes, and the minimalist comfort of a mid-century modern design. Using the square pavers throughout the outdoor living space is a good contrast to typical concrete or brick patios and makes this exterior a welcoming and livable space.

An Outdoor Courtyard

A tree rarely feels so much a part of a designed space as it does in this modern courtyard. The shapes and colours of this courtyard are a perfect setting for a modern apartment complex, home, or even a business.

Outdoor Design: Living and Dining in Style

Finally, this is an inspirational setting for any home?s exterior. Although more colonial than modern, the outdoor armchairs are great uses of modern furniture brands, and the fireplace is a great addition to any outdoor living experience.

If you have noticed the new dinnerware lines on North Hem?s main website, you might be wondering about what inspires them, and how to incorporate our dinnerware collections into your modern, Scandi, or Asian styled home. Below are some of our thoughts on one of our new collections, the mizu-mizu collection.

Mizu-Mizu Dinner Dishes

Inspire Freshness

Design doesn?t have to be sacrificed for practicality. In fact, design can enhance the practical. Our mizu-mizu line of serveware, named for the Japanese element of water, hints at the vital, growing things of the world. Let the design of your dishes influence healthy food choices and present your meals in a way that inspires.

Inspire Elegance

Inspire Experience

If formal presentation of gourmet fare is what you need, clean, elegant serveware certainly does the job. Showcase your edible art on luminous porcelain. Impress that important person in your life, or show your appreciation with a beautiful dining experience – all provided by your own two hands.

Spice Up Your Interior Design

Spice things up by combining different items from our mizu-mizu line. Here a round, white cup pairs with the tawny, rectangular platter for a winning contrast of shape and hue. Lovely in any modern dining room; serve up varied condiments for a family buffet-style meal or present classy entrees with a pleasantly modest flair.
