Beautiful Blend of Modern and Traditional


Talk about a home that respects its surroundings while maintaining its own individual character — this home in Uitdam, the Netherlands, strikes a beautiful balance. That’s it at the center of the photo.

The solid, dark timber siding and dark roof tiles blend in with the neighborhood character, while a portion of the home (not visible) is painted in gleaming white varnish. Solar panels, visible along the roofline, are just one of a host of sustainable features built into the house.

There are different ways for a home to stand out, and this one manages to do it in a very subtle way.
