This classically styled French Provençal home is situated on the high side of a La Jolla, Calif., lot with views of the Pacific Ocean from nearly every room. The home’s exterior is a composition of smooth Santa Barbara stucco, light tan-to-gold-colored rustic and carved stones, stained wood eaves, elegant Génoise roof eaves and rustic clay-tiled roof.
The vision for this living room is to add subtle bursts of color on top of a calm, neutral backdrop. Soft tan furniture is paired with a creamy area rug, golden coffee table and blue ottomans and artwork. Large windows bathe the space in natural light, creating an inviting, comfortable space to relax or entertain.
Tan-colored grasscloth walls and two neutral-hued sofas create a calm, soothing look in this living room. A striking black and gold accent wall and an elegant black coffee table add drama and contrast to the space for a look that's stylish and sophisticated.
In this wide passageway, niches with colored lights stand out against the tan walls, making a lively gallery display. In the center of the space, a long bench sits museum-style, inviting passerby to reflect on the art.
This cheerful kitchen uses the clean white cabinets as a base on which to layer different neutral shades and materials. The backsplash is a pretty sand-colored mosaic tile. The counters are a darker tan stone. The farmhouse sink brings a hint of country charm.
A soft color palette of tan and sky blue pairs with Asian design to give this bedroom a serene, tranquil atmosphere. A sliding glass door provides access to a private patio and also allows natural light to infiltrate the room.
This neutral living room features a suede tan sofa positioned in front of a gray stone fireplace and ivory area rug. Two windows flood the room with natural light, while a natural wood and metal staircase leads the way to the home's second floor.
The black double vanity is a nice contrast to the stark white walls and soft gray tile flooring in this master bath. Gold hardware on the vanity, gold pendant lights and gold-trimmed mirrors add pizzazz to the black and white color scheme.
A natural stone backdrop brings beautiful texture to this kitchen design against the sleek, smooth white cabinetry. Gray countertops blend the cool toned stone coloring with the white fixtures. Natural light from the windows pairs with recessed lighting and a pair of pendant lights to keep the room bright.
Three black barstools line the kitchen island, creating a spot for casual dining and providing contrast against the white marble used throughout the space. White cabinetry with a distressed finish and dark hardware works beautifully with the light-and-dark motif. Golden tan walls pair with a bronze-hued range hood to create warmth in the luxurious space.
A crystal flush-mount light fixture adds a touch of glamor to this classic bedroom. Light blue bedding gives additional color in the space, and a white rug with a gold-colored pattern complements the subtle pattern in the bedspread. Two metal wire pendant lights flank the bed, adding a vintage flair in the room.
