Extra Storage and Pops of Color in Spanish Colonial Courtyard
To help give the homeowners both additional seating and storage, designers chose a rustic, Spanish style bench with storage underneath to meet these two goals. Then, they added turquoise accents above the piece to extra color and a touch of Spanish Colonial flair.
Three Seasons Entertaining Space in Modern Spanish Colonial Courtyard
To give the homeowners a more versatile courtyard space, designers added a sitting area next to a fireplace, adding a three seasons patio for entertaining. Bright red cushions and pillows in this area pop against the neutral colors that traditionally adorn Spanish Colonial homes, bringing in the modern touch that the homeowners love.
Colonial Style Fountain in Modern, Spanish Colonial Courtyard
One of the focal points in the courtyard is the Colonial style fountain located in the flower bed. This intricately carved piece adds aesthetic beauty and an elegant style that perfectly complements the traditional design of the Spanish Colonial while still giving the space a nod to the modern.
Blue and White Traditional Master Bedroom With Mirror
A custom upholstered headboard, tall rectangular mirrors and antique wood nightstands give stately colonial elegance to the master bedroom. Navy blue floral patterns cover the rug and are picked up again in the accent pillows.
Though the exterior details are modest, more emphasis was placed on the entry porch with a decorative balustrade and fluted columns, with the curved roof above.
Two wings with stone facing on either side of the front door ground the house while an angled garage wing responds to the natural contours of the landscape. Daniel Contelmo Architects also wanted to nestle the house at the proper grade allowing for ingress at the top of the slope, egress at the bottom, while keeping the mature tree adjacent to the entry.
The family room area was transformed into a bold and bright gathering place. The red, white and blue palette is appropriate for the colonial architecture of the house, while the playful touches and interesting shapes are graphic, modern and playful.
Decked out with copper gutters, French doors and two balconies, this Colonial style home mixes timeless tradition and style. A small brick patio encourages outdoor entertaining beside low rose bushes and a manicured lawn.
Keep a color palette simple while still making it visually compelling by mixing and matching patterns and fabric. In this hallway, the rug and accent pillows liven up the blue, white and neutral scheme.
