One of the most effective ways of integrating outdoor and indoor design is to bring the outdoors inside. Indoor gardens are gaining in popularity, particularly in regions that experience a harsh climate for most of the year. This lavish home in Saudi Arabia features a modern luxury indoor garden design that can be enjoyed throughout the year.
Designed as an extension to the living area, the indoor garden carries through the modern aesthetic with a simple orthogonal plan. A stone pathway leads from the living room across the garden, bisecting it neatly into two crisp halves. Artificial grass, planted on either side of the walkway, is visually pleasing and stays green all year round. Folding accordion-style glass doors strengthen the connection to the garden, disappearing when open.
The modern luxury interior design features an elegant, stylish living room decorated in hues of gold, grey and black. A wall mounted display stand with a burnished gold frame houses a collection of artefacts and books, neatly arranged against a marble clad backdrop. Gold accents add a fine touch of opulence to the contemporary living room design.
Light colored wooden flooring carries through to the open kitchen adjacent to the living room. Designed in tones of grey and brown to match the living area, the kitchen is ultra-modern in its vibe and setup. A grey, granite countertop, designed as one large slab, compliments the buff-colored matt-finish cabinets. A sleek, stainless steel refrigerator sits next to a slender wood-clad cabinet that hides all the kitchen clutter from view.
The dark granite breakfast countertop serves as a divider between living room and kitchen, defining the boundaries of the open kitchen.
A neatly manicured miniature garden beautifies the space under the marble-clad stairs that lead to the upper floor. Planted with low grass and an indoor palm, the planter is dressed with white stone; each plant neatly contained by a dark stone frame that contrasts nicely with the white gravel dressing. This little planter brings the space to life, adding a splash of color to offset the grey stone and walls.
The foyer is soothing, but unmistakably posh with its marble flooring and gold accents. Niches carved into the stacked stone wall are embellished with gold cladding. A delicate console with gold framework design adds flair to this modern luxury interior design.
The modern luxury indoor garden design adds a sense of grandeur to the entire house. Enclosed by a massive 10m tall wall on one side, the garden has all the elements of the perfect relaxation haven with comfortable lounge seating, a water feature and a cozy fireplace. The huge wall is clad with smaller square slabs of quartzite that are backlit to minimize the towering effect of the wall.
Giving the feeling of being outdoors, this idyllic indoor garden offers all the comforts of an outdoor garden without the unpleasant side effects of the harsh outdoor weather.
