Mediterranean Courtyard of Newport Coast, California, Estate
A marble courtyard gives grand presence to the muted and elegant interiors of this Newport Coast, California, estate. The Mediterranean-inspired architecture continues indoors through the use of rustic ceiling beams and wrought iron balconies, though the rooms have contemporary flair. Arched openings used throughout this courtyard also are repeated inside. The roof hinted at above features 300-year-old ceiling tiles reclaimed from an Italian castle.
