The exposed-beam ceilings add warmth to the living room in this historic 1920s John Byers U-shaped adobe-style hacienda. The living room opens onto a luxurious garden.
This patio feels more like a courtyard, surrounded as it is on two sides by the house. Checkerboard grass-and-paver "flooring" gives the sense an outdoor room, while the fire pit provides warmth and a gathering spot on cool evenings.
The master bathroom combines modern and traditional elements resulting in a spacious, spa-like room.Contemporary glass tile is mixed with Moroccan-style tile on the walls and shower and radiant heated natural terra cotta tiles in a herringbone pattern make the floor a standout.
This red-roofed ranch house backyard boasts a rectangular pool with brown and white tile, stackable basket weave chaise loungers, grass-lined paver stones and an outdoor dining area.
The dark teal walls and wood beamed ceiling give this dining room a warm and intimate feel. Small details like a wallpapered buffet, framed clown artwork and bright yellow vase add pizzazz to the space.
Influences of rusticity, comfort and modernity are combined to create a highly-functional entertaining kitchen. A central island includes a second dishwasher and sink, extra storage and plentiful work space. Teak countertops and shelves, chestnut flooring and European-inspired fixtures add soul while skylights, high ceilings and the spacious setting are utilitarian and contemporary.
