In order to maintain its historic authenticity, designer Erica Riggio selected period paint colors for the exterior of this renovated 1920s bungalow. The updated landscaping incorporates native plants to create a lush entrance to the home.
The addition of this staircase in the dining room adds access to the master suite of this renovated 1920s bungalow. The space under the staircase makes a perfect spot for a built-in closet, while the home's original window provides nice, natural light to the dining area.
"This kitchen's neutral gray-and-white palette with warm wood accents make it balanced and timeless. It would not feel out of place in a 1920s bungalow or a modern home," says interior designer Katelyn Rountree.
One of the most effective ways to highlight custom or historic millwork, such as trim or ceiling beams, is with contrasting white paint. To accentuate the original millwork in this 1920s bungalow, its walls feature muted shades of blue while its trim is a bright shade of ultra white.
The classic 1920s style bungalow still has many iconic architectural features even if some, like the fireplace, are no longer operational. The single shelf above is perfect for displaying a few of Nikia’s favorite works of art including an affirmation in simple words and a painting that bears a striking resemblance to a member of the family. Nearby, a banana leaf palm throws in a spot of natural color and a subtle homage to classic L.A. style.
