Recently renovated by Martha O’Hara Interiors (previously featured here, here, here & here), the dark and foreboding interior inside this Spanish Colonial home overshadowed its charming architectural features. The home didn’t take advantage of the beautiful hill views nor represent its young owners, who were looking for furnishings and selections that would add lots of glamour to the living room, kitchen and dining spaces.
With two little girls at home, and a stylish mom with an admitted high heel obsession, the clients wanted every specification to be a WOW factor without feeling like they had to walk on egg shells. Pretty and durable was mom’s “mantra” that the designer happily ran with! High impact selections were key to the design. They often mixed formal and informal statement pieces to achieve the client ’s overall aesthetic: they wanted the ultimate family home that was all about high fashion AND high function.
The color scheme brings a fresh feel and balances the traditional architectural details this home features.
All the pillows are custom-made, one with Romo fabric and the other with Duralee fabric.
Accessories: Global Views.
The chandelier is a 10-light chandelier in a polished nickel finish by Elk.
The house used to feel “heavy” and outdated. New paint, new flooring and a few other changes made this entire space feel more current and bright.
The paint color throughout the main floor is custom, Sherwin Williams 50/50 Mix (Neutral Ground SW7568/ Natural Tan SW7567).
Note from the designer: “For lighting, our inspiration came from two existing chandeliers above the dining table. Because these were such grand pieces, we were especially conscious of selecting additional lighting that would be equally as impressive, bring light to each room, and push the design more transitional. We selected a large geometric fixture for the formal living room to complement the glamorous dining chandeliers. Mixing these styles helped connect the open- concept rooms while allowing each space to have its own distinction. We balanced the dramatic chandeliers with tall window panels and layers of purple fabrics – from airy lavenders to rich plum and egg-plant hues. “

“An essential request from mom was for an informal eating area where they could enjoy family meals together. To achieve this, we created a dining nook by closing off a portion of their abundant outdoor space. This also allowed us to increase the kitchen’ s size and improve flow to the casual family room.”
