The classic 1920s style bungalow still has many iconic architectural features even if some, like the fireplace, are no longer operational. The single shelf above is perfect for displaying a few of Nikia’s favorite works of art including an affirmation in simple words and a painting that bears a striking resemblance to a member of the family. Nearby, a banana leaf palm throws in a spot of natural color and a subtle homage to classic L.A. style.
The dining room is brimming with drama thanks to lacquered walls and exposed beams. Powder blue Louis XVI chairs soften the strong personality of the jet black walls, while an art deco pendant and sideboard mirror help bounce light around the room.
The green walls of this family room offer the perfect backdrop for a family's favorite art work. Comfortable gray couches, ample throw pillows with mismatched patterns and colors and a rustic wooden coffee table enhance the room's cozy ambiance.
Decorated Outdoor Space with Cedar Table and Turquoise Lanterns
Take advantage of a privacy screen or wall separating your patio from neighbors. Hang lanterns, which can cast a glow at night without taking up floor or table space on a patio. Thrift shop for used wire lanterns or globes, spray paint then any shot of color you desire and add candles. A hanging glass lantern project is one that even beginner DIYers can handle.
The rustic look of the kitchen's reclaimed mushroom wood ceiling is a compelling textural pairing with the room's subway tile walls and terra cotta floor. Above the long island, a pot rack adds to the friendly farmhouse feel.
Spacious Open Kitchen Area With Dual Islands and Large Table
This large, open kitchen blends rustic and contemporary design and features two large islands as well as a large table nearby. The space has a high vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and includes large windows for viewing the surrounding mountains.
The perfectly overgrown landscaping of this cozy cottage pays homage to the fact that the space was once a garden shed. It has since been remodeled into a beautiful, quaint guest space with a small deck and breakfast table, two side patios and French doors on all four sides of the cabin to allow direct access to each of the outdoor spaces.
Driveway View of Modern Home With Full Window Wall
A classic car shines in the driveway of this modern home. A full wall of windows highlights the brightness of the home's indoor lighting. Natural rock beds and a short privacy wall add texture to the home's smooth finishes and flat yard.
The wonderful aqua arched door that leads into the pantry was another moment inspired by the family room's bright painting. The blue is picked up on the island's base, a fun surprise of color in the mostly neutral room.
Colonial Revival Farmhouse Front Exterior and Yard
This home would fit in perfectly anywhere in the South, but is actually located in the suburbs of San Francisco. The owners of the custom-designed residence both have Southern roots and wanted a house for their family that felt familiar.
