Open House Sunday


California Mediterranean
built 1925
Ok...so this isn't a cottage...it's not even a house...it's definitely a mansion.
I don't usually like to show such expensive homes on my blog...
but it had lots of nice details one could incorporate into a more normal size house...
so I'm going for it.
It's rather simple on the outside. But an ornate gate welcomes you.
A tile fountain adds to the Mediterranean charm.
I'm assuming this is the entry.
But this photo is what made me want to show this house on my blog.
That is a tile wall! Scrumptious!
I love every little thing about this space! 
Big open living area.
Notice the detail around the ceiling? Really nice.
I love the neutral colored asian rug in this room and the modern furniture.
 The paneled dining room is too dark for my taste but it is beautiful. 
Two tables in this room!
Love these flower arrangements
 
A cozy office. Really like the asian touches mixed with modern and traditional items.
A big reason why I wanted to share this house is the kitchen.
Pretty much love everything in this one.
Notice the faucets? Aren't they great?
Well everything is great in this room.
 pretty bedroom
I'm sure there must be many bedrooms in this house but they only showed this one.
Really lovely bath
very livable room in a fancy house
Love this veranda!
 I'm almost most impressed by the wine cellar.
 The stacks of crates with mercury glass candles just makes this room!
Dare I say it's romantic?
 Lunch on the terrace? Oh...yes...


 Very pretty patio with grass growing between the pavers.
Yes, it's a big beautiful mansion.
But all the decor ideas in this house could be down-sized.

I thought that was wallpaper on the walls in your inspiration photo! I love the shiny white bathroom in this mansion. Thanks for sharing!

OMG, as the youth of today would say. I'm blown away by the beauty of this fabulous home - the veranda, that tiled room and the gorgeous hallway are my personal top rooms. Thank you for sharing, it's certainly got a lot to inspire one in their own home!

I enjoyed looking at the beautiful details of this vintage mansion such as the carved doors, paneling and tile work. Those arched French doors to the veranda are stunning but my favorite feature is the crown molding in the living room. I wish they had shown a close-up of it.

Beautiful house. The kitchen is amazing. It was nice thinking I was rich and wandering through my house with a cup of tea in hand for a little while!

I do love this house! Wow. The second photo (not sure what it is….maybe a vestibule of sorts….looks just like you!

Thanks for sharing it.
