Residential Design Inspiration: A Play with Light and Shadow

By on February 8, 2018. Posted in .

A client came to us with magazines full of inspiration images, and we found a few common themes. One was our client’s love of the spaces that showed a sense of play with light and shadow. These playful architectural elements can be used in modern homes to provide shelter from the sun, privacy for inhabitants, or texture and interest for an otherwise ordinary space.

We’re sharing some inspiration images below that are anything but ordinary. I love that such simple design elements can create quite a dramatic affect!
