John Barrentine and Chuck Marquardt of the RED Real Estate Group recently sold this stunning Craftsman in Los Angeles' Hancock Park neighborhood, and affirm that the discerning use of color, including classic red and yellow on an olive background, added immensely to the curb appeal.
This modern spa bathroom boasts an air of elegance and relaxation. Neutral tile flooring coats the floor and creates the walls for the tub. Natural wood cabinets are a beautiful understated touch. An olive green countertop adds soft color under the brightly lit twin mirrors. A modern white sofa creates a lounge area to complete the space.
There's a beautiful masculine influence in the design of this living room. An animal hide rug adds a rugged touch against the stylish furniture including tan tufted sofas and olive green chairs with nailhead trim. A navy blue ceiling acts as an accent while yellow patterned pillows contribute a pop of bright color.
One the luxury features, the salt water pool offers a refreshing place to relax and unwind. Hot pink umbrellas line the pool area to provide shade from the sun, while cushioned chaises in shades of orange and olive green are available for those looking to sunbathe.
A wall of glass tile in warm tones of olive green, orange, brown and gold creates a striking backdrop to the bar area. Custom wood shelves are lit by LED tape lighting, while Shaker-style cabinetry is used to create a wet bar for this man cave media room.
The warm, earth-toned kitchen boasts exquisite craftsman style with exposed beams, warm wood cabinets and a small prep island with a butcher block countertop. Bar seating, a trio of stained glass windows and a built-in hutch in soft olive green complete the absolutely stunning design.
A custom-designed bar height table sits behind the sectional to add extra seating to the media room. Brown leather barstools are the perfect place to grab a snack while watching a movie. Warm tones of olive green, orange, brown and gold make the room feel like a man-cave.
A row of tall, thin windows allow natural light to stream into this master bedroom through open white curtains. A polished, brown stone fireplace surround provides a small separation between the reading nook and the main bedroom area. Neutral bed linens keep with the calm feel while an olive green neck roll adds a touch of color.
Spring green and gold strike the perfect balance of glamor and playfulness. Often paired with deeper shades of green like emerald or olive, gold takes on a fresh approach when paired with bright greens and celery tones.
