STATS 5 BEDROOMS 3 BATHS 3,200 SQ. FT. $995,000Pedigree: California modernist Richard Neutra created only a small number of East Coast homes, and this midcentury example blends nicely into its forested plot on Philadelphia’s Main Line. The low-slung structure’s expansive windows merge indoors and out, most noticeably in the living room, where two glass walls join at a mitered corner, affording sylvan views. Stone fireplaces and cedar ceilings further gesture to the surrounding landscape.
Statement-making bold tile - There are so many fabulous designs in tile today and a mix of different materials. Tile used to fall into the background in design and I love that it is evolving and becoming the ‘it’ factor in a room. You can instantly transform an otherwise neutral space and give it personality just by adding an amazing tile backsplash or tile floor
