With multiple terraces and ample windows, this transitional California home is perfectly sited to take advantage of its Hollywood Hills setting. Light, neutral sides and dark roofing create a simple yet effective contrast.
The street view was an important component for the owner of this boutique. West 5th Street is a busy street in Austin and it was important for her to have mannequins displayed in pop out windows with open views into the store.
Stone and stucco combine to create this home's beautiful, sophisticated exterior, and a metal roof completes the transitional look. In front of the home, a paved courtyard provides space for outdoor entertaining.
Wide stone steps and a porch that runs the length of the house make this transitional home, beautifully lit for night, feel all the more welcoming. An unusual round turret and balcony sits between two more traditional gables.
These homeowners liked the cleanness of a modern home, but also wanted to keep warm colors that made the space feel more their own, so designers created a "transitional" look, using color tones that are clean and soft to downplay the radical, horizontal lines of a modern design.
