Perspective drawings of a modern house

Here are a few drawings of a house I did at a time I was learning about perspective and redesigning the layout of an existing house, thinking about my ideal house. Few years later, I would still like to live in it!

With the LA house plan I was given I made the space flexible so that part of it could be a large studio that transforms as a gallery for art shows.

I'm showing below the final plan with furniture layout. The whole place is basically open, with all the rooms joining one big space (except for the master bedroom suite). When the house is used to show artwork, the private areas of the home can be made off limits with sliding panels.

I like a contrast of wood and metal for the kitchen, and also that the sink is facing the dining table so you can talk to people while doing the dishes. In the back there is a counter that can double as a working surface and a place to have an aperitif while cooking.

For the dining room I chose a lot of warm wood tones with splashes of bright colors. The patio doors let plenty of natural light in during the daytime, and when it's warm out they can be open to get that typically californian indoor-outdoor feel.

As you can easily notice in pretty much every drawing, I love mood lighting..

A cozy bedroom, with wool on the walls, windows, and the bed. They don't show on this drawing, but in the plan you can see two large doors opposite the main wall which opens onto the backyard - which by the way has a pool, how nice.. the sky is the limit when designing your own fictional house!

Aaah, a bathroom with plenty of storage space.. And a glass shower which has a view on the outside, but the glass would have to be a one-way surface unless you like to show off. Or I could raise the tile wall just a little higher.

This is a comfy room to hang out by the fireplace, or do some work. The piano could be replaced by a couch, but it's more romantic and it's also a more interesting shape to draw..

In the background that's the studio area. I left it pretty bare, except for large closets to store art materials and a murphy bed for when there are visitors. I usually prefer to work on the floor anyway.
