A CALIFORNIAN HOME WITH A MEDITERRANEAN VIBE

This Californian house began as a pretty badly done faux Mediterranean 1990s spec house. Homepolish designer Rosa Beltran was asked to renovate the home and give it a more authentic yet modern look. The first step was to amend some of the structural elements. The vinyl windows were replaced and the entrance was adjusted to better fit with the neoclassical architecture found throughout the neighborhood.

Geometric tile on the steps sets the tone for the Spanish-inspired aesthetic found inside. You can read more about the house and the design choices here at Domino.
