Tudor Revival Home Gets Modern Update With Light Color Palette
A steeply pitched roof offers a Tudor Revival look to this Beverly Hills, Calif., home, though the structure boasts a lighter color palette that gives the look a more modern appeal. The front yard is dressed with low-maintenance ground cover landscaping
As seen on HGTV's Cousins on Call, Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri have exposed the brick in the Raos' living room, drawing a unique contrast between the original part of the house and the updated, lighter section. They knocked out the wall that used to separate the entryway from the living room, which gave the space a ton of extra natural light. The cousins then installed track lighting to help give the space a more open, inviting feel. With plenty of seating and shelving storage, this updated family room is a great place for relaxing.
The renovation allowed the designers to increase the functionality of the kitchen, add a peninsula for seating and give the clients a large, open pantry that they coveted. For the design, the clients wanted to marry rustic and modern elements to create their dream kitchen. By using a light wash on the floors, a farmhouse sink and a wood hood, they added just enough rustic charm while still maintaining an overall modern feel.
Updated, Craftsman Kitchen With Light Oak Flooring
A bank of tall pantries balance the room without taking up much square footage. Throughout the kitchen and the adjacent living space, wide-plank, white oak flooring creates a clean base that is easy to maintain and is friendly to the back, legs and feet while cooking.
Refinished Floors and New Lights in Updated Dining Room
The dining room has been refurnished and floors have been sanded and stained. New lights and window treatment are also a part of giving the room a long needed upgrade. French doors have also been included to let in natural light. As seen on HGTV's hit show Love It or List It Too.
Ambient Light and Modern Art Collection Update Pre-Depression Era Hallway
Before renovating this pre-Depression era apartment, the spaces in the home were very dark and traditional. To remedy this, designers added ambient light to brighten up the space. In this hallway, they restored the neoclassical plasterwork to highlight the architectural elegance of the space and added modern art to match the homeowner's personal style. These efforts highlight the history of the building, perfectly blending it with the modern style of the homeowner.
