In the spirit of Italian living, the focus of this room is the wrought iron bed with inset tapestries. A vintage blue and white floral linen and subtle damask wallpaper pattern complement the ornate design of the wrought iron.
A beautifully decorative stone well with wood bucket in wrought iron supports captures the attention on this Italian villa style courtyard. Natural color from plant life pops against the neutral tones of the exterior stone. Wood framed french doors and mediterranean sconces finish the sophisticated look.
As seen on Love It Or List It, Too the room was previously open on the garden facing wall, but had a shoebox for a kitchen and an underused bathroom. Jillian's solution was to blow out the bathroom entirely and insert a 30ft steel beam to support the already vaulted ceiling. With an extra 10 inches of space found in the renovation Jillian's team added a coffered ceiling to delineate the space adding intimacy and definition. The grid prints are of traditional Italian hunting scenes often found in family homes of Italian expats and are a nod to the grid design of the ceiling. A custom sectional was designed so that the homeowners could entertain many guests and take in a football game or two. The wrought iron wall hanging is actually from Egypt, but Jillian felt it gave a country feeling to the home. The components console is custom made. New french doors have been added to the patin entrance and a new gas insert sits on the far wall made of Venetian plaster and box posts, designed to draw the eye upwards into the grand vaulted space.
This Los Angeles-area home is loaded with Mediterranean charm, from its arched front entry to its wrought-iron balconies to its lush landscaping. Italian tile graces the front steps, adding a custom touch to the home's curb appeal.
As seen on Love It Or List It, Too, the old piano room was never used so it became the family room with coffered ceilings adjacent to the newly installed fireplace. Jillian brought in a custom made sectional sofa, a wrought iron wall hanging from Egypt and traditional Italian hunting prints to give the family the Tuscan inspired feel they were looking for.
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.
This modern Tuscan-style kitchen pays homage to the traditional details associated with the design through its use of color, architecture and accessories. Wood rafters help enclose the kitchen, while exposing the cathedral ceilings and intricate, artistic murals along the walls and ceilings. Simple wrought iron fixtures showcase Old World appeal with a contemporary edge. With massive wooden beams, terra-cotta tiles from Italy and hand-painted frescoes of Italian vineyards — this kitchen cooks up Italian flavor from floor to ceiling. But it's the bread warmer and wine cellar that stores up to 1,800 bottles that make this an Italian paradise. Appliances include two Miele dishwashers, a vegetable steamer, a built-in espresso machine and a five-burner Thermador stove.
