Crisp, white lines and loads of windows characterize this contemporary hacienda in Tarzana, California. The nearly 6,000-square-foot structure features four separate suites, a covered patio, private balconies, a pool and poolhouse and Mediterranean styling.
This custom kitchen features a blend of design styles, from its clean-lined and contemporary cabinetry and lighting to its rustic arched stone entryway. Throughout the house, faux finishes and stone accents give a nod to Tuscan design.
This family room is designed to feel soft and fun but still sophisticated. Blue walls liven up the look, while a stunning white leather sectional offers a more grown-up piece to anchor the child-friendly space.
This modern Mediterranean hacienda in Tarzana, California, is built for entertaining. The property features a series of upper and lower terraces that open the home to the outdoor spaces. A poolhouse offers added convenience for guests, and a fire pit is comfortably placed to enjoy the view.
In imagining the look of this living room, the biggest design challenge was its narrow shape and the low windows. Furniture couldn't go up against the walls, as it would block windows and doorways. The solution: Use the rug to center furniture in the middle of the space.
The formal dining room off the large foyer sits behind the gourmet kitchen for convenience for entertaining and family gatherings. A stacked stone focal wall is paired with sleek black ceiling beams and soft neutral tile flooring for a contemporary Tuscan-inspired space. A pair of chandeliers sit above the oversized table surrounded by comfy, earthy chairs.
This fun, warm family room also works as a great room as it shares an open space with the kitchen and dining area. The designer felt the room needed to honor that openness and connect the spaces while retaining its own identity. For the reason, having a low-profile sofa with an adjustable back that lifts up or sets down delineates the family room without being a barrier.
A shimmering blue backsplash and mosaic tile floor accent brings a Mediterranean flair into this contemporary kitchen. The stainless steel appliances are state-of-the-art and, along with black countertops, create a sleek and modern feel.
A 2-ton granite boulder, old driftwood tree and mosaic of beach stone are signature details in the entry courtyard of a contemporary Mediterranean residence. Landscape designer C. Stuart Moore also selected ferns, sedges and moss for the award-winning space.
While the clay tile roof gives this home's exterior a Mediterranean vibe, the backyard swimming pool boasts a more contemporary feel. A beautiful raised hot tub provides the perfect spot for relaxation.
