Off the living room, two small bedrooms and a bathroom can be reached through sliding doors that, when closed, continue the cheerful pattern of the Moroccan cement tiles covering the wall.

In the dining room, which opens to the backyard terrace, original tilework on the floors and walls complement decidedly modern counterparts—an original 1938 Butterfly chair

The renovation of the kitchen added 100 square feet to the space, along with larger windows to let in more light. The appliances are Thermador, and the black-and-white floor tile by Granada Tile.
