Design A neglected and run-down 1920’s Spanish colonial townhouse was updated for modern living. The heart and soul of the original Spanish detailing had been stripped away through years of insensitive remodelling. Spaces were re-arranged to provide additional storage and improve bath and kitchen layouts.
Using design ideas inspired by the past, the charm of the house was revived.
Build Layers of acoustical ceiling tiles, shoddy cabinetry and low-quality flooring were removed. Spanish-influenced detailing was re-introduced by installing properly proportioned arches, custom panelled doors, leaded glass accents, period mouldings, stone flooring, reclaimed lighting fixtures and, above all, colour.
The tongue and groove boarding used in the design of the kitchen cabinetry, walls, bookshelves and built-in closets completely suits the house and adds to its appeal
Furnish There was no intention to furnish in a purely 20’s style, rather Cheryl gathered an eclectic mix of classic pieces with an eye to future moves of this roving client. Cheryl understood the importance of scale and chose robust, masculine pieces to add a sense of grandeur to the intimate space. Collections were assembled and displayed.
This project once again demonstrates her use of high quality furnishings and her ability to create individual interiors.
