The large, open living room is full of southwestern style from the terracotta tile floor to the exposed wood beams on the pitched roof. A pair of sofas flank the adobe-inspired fireplace, while double-tiered chandeliers add Old World charm to the room.
The outdoor living room is anchored by a large, double sided, white masonry fireplace that is a nod to the walls of the home and the retaining walls in the front and backyards. With luxurious, outdoor furniture, a television and a wood ceiling, this outdoor space is cozy, warm and welcoming-the perfect space for an outdoor gathering.
This contemporary master bathroom not only features a double vanity sink area, but a separate makeup vanity complete with ample cabinet storage and a wall-to-wall mirror. Cedar wall paneling and a built-in fireplace lend an inviting vibe to the space, while white porcelain floor tiles keep the look clean and simple.
Mod seating options face a striking focal wall in this wide open, contemporary living space. White walls create a gallery-style backdrop that makes the tufted blue sofa and modern paintings pop. Sleek black benches provide extra seating in the conversation area, which is anchored by a neutral rug. Wood for the fireplace doubles as art and adds a touch of irony to the distinctly urban space.
Just off the formal dining room, the living room boasts a full room of elegant, traditional furniture. A traditional sofa and chairs provide plenty of seating, while a leather ottoman, which doubles as a coffee table, adds sophisticated functionality to the space. A marble fireplace gives off plenty of warmth to this room, while the ornamental mantel and painting hanging above it add artistry to the space, creating a warm, yet formal living room.
As seen on HGTV's Love It or List It Too, Jillian Harris' overall design began by removing the fireplace obstacle at the entrance, adding around 5 feet to the kitchen. The wall that separated the kitchen from the dining room was removed, The London Grey kitchen island was placed on wheels so that it could easily be moved if more space is needed, it also double as a portable bar-perfect for entertaining. The backsplash is Calcutta marble, which is considered timeless, but was made more contemporary by laying a herring bone design. The floor is Rosedale series, light grey. Walls were painted Silver Drop. Kitchen counter tops are Stone Grey. The small kitchen counter bench left of the stove doubles as a homework desk for Joyce's boys-a request she made so that they can be close while she cooks.
“The trick to tackling a huge room like this is to divide it up into zones and that's just what this design trio does so well,” says designer Candice Olson. “There is an area to take in the view; a sprawling wall shelf that doubles as both display and seating; (great for those big LA parties); and a main conversation grouping that floats in front of the fireplace. I think the wall art is the strongest element in this space. Large tree-motif panels suit the grand scale of the space, as does the ingenious bubble-wrap wall hanging backed with a very current fretwork graphic — someone’s going to Design Heaven for that move. And can we talk about the pink ducks?! The 3-D element of these wooden sculptures animates the massive fireplace wall but this team doesn’t stop there. A quart of neon-pink paint has these ducks kicking sand in the feathered faces of their pink flamingo cousins. It’s this touch of the unexpected that prevents a serious room like this from looking too somber and that can make a good design a great one. As strong as the wall art is, I feel the decorative elements placed along the wall shelves and mantel are suffering from a case of "Honey, I shrunk the accessories." Big rooms need big accessories — lamps, candlesticks or pedestals, ceramics and mirrors — all large-scaled to suit. I would have opted for a huge, free-form, wood coffee table. Glass tends to visually disappear and is a better choice to help keep the feeling open and uncluttered in small spaces.”
