California Castle Features Wood Accents
This grand castle-inspired home incorporates Gothic style elements in each room. Wood accents contrast with the stone wall, while the entry way to this room boasts traditional medieval arches and ornate railings.
Although this home has spaces large enough for over 100 people to accommodate the homeowners' love for throwing parties, they wanted to maintain smaller, more intimate spaces for family gatherings such as this lovely living room with plenty of comfortable seating and a fireplace for warmth.
This handsome dining room is a great example of the home's mix of textures with its wide plank wood floors, hand hewn beams in the ceiling and rustic stone accent wall. Detailed carvings give a unique touch to the chairs.
An arched stone entry bridges the living room and kitchen in this Tuscan-inspired home in Austin, Texas. In the living room, a beamed ceiling and warm wood finishes give a nod to Mediterranean design, while a wall of glass offers sweeping views of the outdoors. The stone fireplace ties in the with both the accent wall and the home's exterior.
Living room flows to family/game room flows to dining room and on to the kitchen in the easy open plan layout of the home's first floor. Large windows all around fill the interiors with pretty natural light that reflects warmly off the terra cotta floors.
Keeping the furnishings simple in this dining room calls attention to the lovely Spanish-style architecture with its graceful arches, high ceiling and beautiful wood floors. Black exposed beams pull the eye up and make the ceiling appear even loftier.
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 The end result is anything but outdated thanks to a cheery pair of blue sofas and stylish pendant light.
Close to the kitchen and breakfast room, this living space is a great place to relax with friends and family. A plush, leather sectional with bright red accent pillows offers a comfy spot to sit and enjoy a movie.
Oversized Bookcase Wows in Mediterranean Family Room
This family room showcases an oversized built-in bookcase, which also serves as a media cabinet. Its chocolate brown hue coordinates with the furnishings, giving the space a custom look. A wall of windows floods the room with natural light.
The homeowners wanted a quiet place to read and listen to music. The serene blue-green walls do the trick nicely, combined with a custom-made chaise lounge with antique Indian carvings, an antique Moroccan wedding shawl and other Mediterranean textiles.
