Modern homes that are focused on light and white are great, but isn't it time for a little twist on the norm? This home has all of the touchstones of modern design but it's emphasis is on black, stark, and sophisticated materials. The result is a grounded design, as opposed to the light and airy homes we're all familiar with. 

The plans for this bold home come to us from Polish architects Home Koncept. The 1,463 ft² (136 m²) is open-concept, with a smooth and modern fireplace in the living room. It feels cozy, concealed, but also blends outdoor and indoor space phenomenally. How did they pull this off unusual atmosphere? Let's find out.  

From the exterior this home looks familiar, with the white overhang, large windows, layered patio, and blend of wood and white. But the core of the home is black and traditional.

From here the peaked roof, stone chimney and black bricks are clearer. They create a strong, bold impression.

This fabulous open-concept main floor has a dramatic edge to it. Not only are there black decor pieces, but look at the soft grey couch and the subtle carpet. It looks so comfortable!

How often do you find black wall in modern homes? Yet there one is, perfectly balanced by the wood for a bold look. The matching double oven is quite the luxury too.

The living room has a subtle view of the outdoors that keeps things both private and bright.

That main living space felt quite spacious, but the floor plan reveals the architects found room for a bedroom, office, bathroom, and more.

The lovely connection between outdoor and indoor space is beautiful. But, it remains private with the blinds, and grounded with the dark poles.
