We’re pretty much obsessed with shipping container homes here at Modernize. Can you really blame us? They’re sustainable, unique, and invite out-of-the-box design creativity.  And especially when we see homes like this 1500 square-foot residence in Nederland, Colorado, we can’t help but dream of that #containerlife.

Tomacek Studio is responsible for this home, which runs on solar energy. We love how the designers didn’t flatten the walls on the inside—the added texture is visually appealing, and it remains true to the source. In the kitchen pictured below, no backsplash is needed because of this. Can’t help but wonder if it’s magnetic… that’d be perfect for sticking up recipes and photos.

The walls of the living room are in the same style but painted a different color that complements the blue in the kitchen. The main living area is actually a wedge-shaped space, not a shipping container, but they connect seamlessly.
