We've all been warned not to "judge a book by its cover" and been told that "looks can be deceiving." Both of those sayings apply to this home - from the outside it looks like a rustic stone lodge. You'd expect to see deer heads mounted to walls and pastoral furnishings. Leslie Morales, interior designer at the Smart Furniture Studio, took this opportunity to inject a dose of sophistication to the space with sculptural mid-century modern pieces and minimalist seating with industrial light fixtures. But first things first. Let's check out the book cover (aka the exterior). EXTERIOR: Modern architecture and rough-hewn stone make for an intriguing combination. We recommend using a mix of minimalist outdoor decor and traditional patio furniture.
