The keynote feature in this pub-style dining room is the integrated bar with restaurant quality beer taps that can serve up to four different craft beers. Historic character is added with stamped-tin ceiling tiles, while a statement-making chandelier adds an elegant touch.
Warm wood tones, muted gray-greens and charcoal exemplify the casual, comfortable vibe of this pub-inspired dining room. The custom bar includes four pro-quality taps, white subway tile backsplash and a custom shelf with under-lighting that illuminate bottles or decorative items. A chalkboard accent wall is the perfect spot for homeowners to add a personal touch, while stamped-tin ceiling tiles bring historic character to the space.
An arched ceiling and architectural columns make this neutral living room feel expansive and elegant. The focal point in the room is the floor-to-ceiling fireplace, which has been given an additional, unique quality with pattern-stamped concrete.
Below the door handles to Cevicheria, there are fish stamped into the door, while above the handle, birds are flying. This helps to create the beach ambiance that is carried inside the restaurant. However, the stamps in the metal create intrigue for passersby when they glance in and see an octopus suspended from the ceiling, making the doors more than just a pretty decoration.
The navy blue waterfall edge countertop frames the beautiful blue-and-white hand-stamped tile on the bar. Wooden barstools with nailhead details have a modern Moroccan look that enhances the Mediterranean-inspired style of this bar area. A stone accent wall adds texture and interest to break-up the all-white walls and ceilings.
The remodeled dining area -- in warm wood tones, muted gray-greens and charcoal -- exemplifies the casual, comfortable vibe the Kitchen Cousins were going for with this renovation. To add historic character to the dining room, stamped-tin tiles were installed on the ceiling. The tiles are in varied patterns alternating between linear, medallion and floral designs. An impressive chandelier adds a touch of elegance to the space.
When guests enter Cevicheria, they see large steel doors stamped with fish and birds, creating the first layer of the restaurant's ambiance. Then, upon entering the building, guests are greeted with the view of a majestic octopus hanging from the ceiling. These two details, along with the colors and textures in the space, make guests feel as if they are spending the day at the beach.
Sheats-Goldstein House: The Big Lebowski (1998), Bandits (2000) and Charlie's Angeles: Full Throttle (2003) each used this photogenic location. Built between 1961 and 1963 in a style described as "organic architecture." That coffered ceiling with tiny "drinking glass" skylights and the dividing wall of glass that merges the interior and exterior space -- this idea is pure Lautnerism. His stamp is everywhere, as Lautner, in the footsteps of his mentor Frank Lloyd Wright, designed all the elements: the lighting scheme, flooring, furnishings and windows.
In a large, open interior — and this is especially important when the space has soaring ceilings, as this one does — it’s essential to choose furnishings and details that fit the large scale of the room. Says stylist Sophie Gunnersen of Studio Stamp: “All the pieces in the room are rather big and bold, and everything has a purpose. The custom-made dining table sits at bar height and it is large and chunky. The black AGA cooker is really the key piece in the space — it adds ambience and attracts most people with its warmth. The vertical bookshelf along with the softer green tiles divide the room.”
