Architect Howard Backen of Backen & Backen, masterfully designed this light and airy retreat alongside Interior Designer and Artist, Kathy Taslitz. With a neutral pallet and the use of natural materials, inviting textures, custom furniture and artwork curated by Kathy Taslitz, this modern home embodies the best of indoor and outdoor living.

Beautiful oak floors, whitewashed wood ceilings and sleek blackened steel windows and doors that led out to gorgeous outdoor spaces, make this a comfortable and sophisticated sanctuary.
