Respecting Ford vision

On every side of the house, walls of windows look out onto a verdant green yard shaded by live oaks.

The Parks wanted to incorporate a more modern style in the home, but one that would complement the mid-century aesthetic of the house. Taking a page adidas jeremy scott from contemporary design, they chose to keep all the walls jeremy scott wings 2.0 white for a cool, clean look. They installed recessed lighting that wouldn't interrupt the simple lines of the home, and poured self-leveling, russet-stained concrete for flooring. In other rooms they installed industrial coin grip rubber flooring. Kate liked the look of the material, and knew it would withstand daily use by her family and their four dogs.
