All images from Arch Daily Combine the old and new for a warm and inviting look. Cold concrete floors and walls? Check. Roughly hewn wood? Check. Clean modernist lines? Check.  And yet there's something about the triangular House at Big Hill that speaks to all the warmth and comfort of wintertime. Rugs and wood create instant warmth in otherwise cold spaces. To figure out what that is, let's trying re-framing how we look at the space: Concrete warmed with heirloom rugs and time-worn woods? Check.  Modern floor plans often allow for more shared communal space. Open lines that invite conversation and family-time? Check.  Add in a  small desk lamp  beside the bed and  contemporary pendant lighting  to provide just enough (but not too much) light, allowing the woodfire stove to take center stage.  Simplicity in the bedroom can often be most effective. Seen for what it can become rather than what it is, a stark modern space can also be the model of warm and inviting.
