The owners of this Spanish Colonial wanted a courtyard design that would match the integrity of the home's exterior design, but they wanted to make sure it was fresh and modern. In order to achieve this goal, designers anchored the courtyard design around the pool, the shape of which is traditional, but the black bottom brings in the modern character these homeowners were looking for.
One of the focal points in the courtyard is the Colonial style fountain located in the flower bed. This intricately carved piece adds aesthetic beauty and an elegant style that perfectly complements the traditional design of the Spanish Colonial while still giving the space a nod to the modern.
To give the homeowners a more versatile courtyard space, designers added a sitting area next to a fireplace, adding a three seasons patio for entertaining. Bright red cushions and pillows in this area pop against the neutral colors that traditionally adorn Spanish Colonial homes, bringing in the modern touch that the homeowners love.
The Point Loma, Calif., home was built in 1935 and needed a renovation to bring it to the modern world. During the remodeling, it was important to preserve the historic front facade of the home. An inviting front courtyard features beautiful landscaping, a brick patio and lap pool covered by pergola.
In this Spanish Colonial Revival home, the bathroom is designed to evoke the home's style with tile details and a warm wood vanity. For a modern touch, a small TV is built into the wall to catch up on the news while getting ready.
