A simple yet sophisticated foyer welcomes guests to this 1930s Mediterranean villa in Los Angeles. By limiting the decor to a marble-topped table and worn neutral runner, the designers ensured that all eyes would be on the room's interesting architectural details, like the coffered ceilings, carved faces and Spanish-style staircase.
Turning left off the foyer leads guests into the living room, where a textured wood ceiling commands all attention. Skylights run the length of one side to prevent the statement piece from seeming too heavy and cast an inviting glow on the fireplace.
Broad archways open the covered patio to the backyard, where a large swimming pool centers a lush green lawn. On the other side of the pool, the landscape architects used stone pavers and lounge chairs to create a separate spot for sunbathing.
A contemporary home office features a sleek glass-topped desk, stylish modern guest chairs and tall built-in bookshelves that flank a tall window and bring both light and added function to the space. The French oak flooring continues throughout most rooms in the 11,400-square-foot home in Newport Coast, California.
This large room is entertainment-ready, with a built-in bar, a fully outfitted game table and a home theater complete with a large projector screen and comfy oversize sofa. Rustic details like the ceiling beams and French oak floors blend with contemporary furnishings for a chic, updated vibe that's ideally suited for modern living.
Stepping into this backyard feels a lot like discovering a hidden oasis, as a large swimming pool glints and sparkles in the sunlight. Palm trees accentuate that tropical aesthetic, while hedges act as a natural wall around the yard.
Turning right off the foyer leads into the formal dining room, where a round, glass-topped table and eight slipper chairs sit centerstage. A neutral area rug softens the terra cotta tile floors and accentuates the room's light and airy aesthetic.
With eight slipper chairs and a bar cart in the corner, it's clear that this Mediterranean-modern dining room is meant for entertaining. Two contemporary mirrors fill out the walls and reflect the natural light, making the space seem bigger and brighter.
A refreshing wash of white spills over guests when they step inside this Mediterranean-modern foyer. To showcase some of the space's interesting architectural details, the designers defined the balcony, staircase railing and door with matte black paint.
Since this home is located in Los Angeles, it only makes sense to have French doors that can be opened to fresh air and sunlight at a moment's notice. In the library, two brown leather armchairs and a cream-colored seat soak up the views, with an oversized red area rug pulling in some additional warmth.
Keeping with the warm nature of the Mediterranean villa, the designers outfitted the living room with pieces in golden hues, like the art over the fireplace and the area rug down below. A plush sofa, two cushioned armchairs and a large coffee table create a formal sitting area where the owners and their guests can take it all in.
Enter into this gorgeous courtyard and be greeted by beautiful gardens on either side. The large Mediterranean style wall creates privacy while a white pergola can be used as a base for climbing plants.
