Echoes of Old Hollywood

I have had a long love affair with the Spanish Revival style. I think it has to do with the Old Hollywood glamour that I associate with these distinctive houses. Brown Design Group's renovation of 1920s Inverness is beautifully sympathetic but still with more than a nod to contemporary tastes. A perfect marriage between the heavy oak pieces of the era and modern overstuffed linen and leather sofas and statement modern art pieces. Still it's always the wrought iron work, the terracotta and the intricate ceilings that get me as well as the pool side entertaining. Speaking of ceilings what about that original tiled ceiling in the kitchen!

A serene exuberance

There is an exuberance, a riot of colour, pattern and texture that defines Los Angeles based interior designer Betsy Burnham's work. In this house though, dark wood and black framed steel and glass windows and doors anchor an uncharacteristic neutral palette. Colour is expressed subtly in public areas while in the private bedroom and bathroom areas it makes a playful return. An eclectic style is perhaps best described as Rajasthan meets Myanmar meets Moroccan and Spanish Mission. An exotic yet elegant and serene house. Mt. Olympus by Burnham Design.

Lake House

The stuff of daydreams. Driving through the gates of your lakeside property. All shingles and shades of green. Settle your gaze on the rippling water and sigh. Turn and step into the inviting entry hall and hold your breath waiting for that first glimpse of the great room. Never disappoints. There is one problem though. Should you wash off the dust from your trip with a quick dip in the lake or a long soak in that bathroom. Thank goodness it's only a daydream and you're not really being forced to make the choice. Lake Martin House by Birmingham, Alabama-based Bill Ingram Architect.
