Stepping inside the villa reveals a sophisticated, Old World-style foyer. An area rug softens the beautiful blue-and-green tiled floor, while a wrought iron railing draws the eye up to the second level.
Wood beams, an ornate four-poster bed, rustic chandelier, and arched wall decor exude old-world elegance in this master bedroom from designer Thomas Oppelt. The large, patterned area rug frames the space.
The exposed beams and pale yellow wall color extends into the family room that rests just off the dining room, connected by an open archway. Leather sofas, wood furniture and an Oriental rug help to highlight the home's traditional style, while the space is lightened by the natural light that enters the space through the double windows.
Classic Old World style elements fill this living room: ornate mantel, exposed-beam ceiling, traditional area rug and arched doorways. The end result is anything but outdated thanks to a cheery pair of blue sofas and stylish pendant light.
Two low comfy sofas provide plenty of space to gather and relax, while allowing for stunning views out of the arched window. An Old World chandelier lights up the space, while a shag area rug grounds the space and brings in texture.
Exposed ceiling beams bring a rustic quality to this Old World-style living room with beautiful Venetian plaster walls. Clean-lined upholstered furniture is paired with traditional wooden pieces featuring elaborate detailing. Traditional area rugs add warmth to the red brick flooring.
This dining room has Old World charm with a long formally set dining table and chairs on an Oriental rug. To continue the style, the room features stacked stone columns, rod iron accents and earthy red walls.
Earthy tones, like warm browns, terracottas and grassy greens, are used for a Tuscan-inspired color palette in this kitchen. Knotty wood cabinets pair with dark gray countertops and a stone tile backsplash, while neutral tiles and an Oriental area rug ground the space.
A towering coursed limestone fireplace accented by a 19th century iron door from Italy anchors the sitting area of this great room. An antique rug, linen-covered custom-designed bench, a pair of Avrett tables and silk-covered high-backed sofas complete the space. Large picture windows allow for ample natural lighting and incredible views.
Architectural designer Matt Dougan used elements like vigas (wooden support beams) and latillas (slender strips of wood) on the ceiling of this living room to add authentic Southwestern charm. Old World rugs were combined with leather furnishings, while Southwestern-print furniture, a hand-carved cantera fireplace and an antler chandelier complete the look. A few subtle floral accessories implement a soft, feminine touch to the masculine space.
