By Kathryn M.
Located just steps from the Silver Lake Reservoir, the renovated home mixes classic archetypal details with chic new finishes.

If you’re not charmed by the exterior of this Spanish Revival–style home in L.A., then perhaps the home’s endearing interior will do it for you. Originally built in 1926, the white stuccoed home is sited on a corner lot less than a block away from the Silver Lake Reservoir. A walkway leads past a wrought-iron gate and through privacy hedges to the front door—beyond which lies a sunlit interior that contrasts subtle architectural details with pops of color.

A brick walkway leads to the front door. The home’s exterior is typical of the Spanish Revival style, with a stuccoed facade, wrought-iron details, and a tile roof.

The front door opens in to a sunlit living area with a Spanish-style kiva fireplace in one corner. A wall of windows wrap around another corner.

Offering four bedrooms and two full bathrooms, the nearly 2,300-square-foot interior balances Spanish Revival features, such as coved ceilings and a kiva fireplace, with modern additions like colorful cabinetry and whimsical wallpaper. A galley-style kitchen sits in the middle of the lower level, surrounded by formal living and dining areas on opposite sides, as well as a family room at one end. Two bedrooms and a full bathroom are tucked away upstairs, while a fourth bedroom/bonus area is located on the basement level.

A small dining area is located in one corner of the living room. Throughout the home, the coved ceilings are highlighted by crown molding a subtle color shift.

On the opposite side of the main level, the formal dining area features whimsical wallpaper. A pass-through connects the space with the kitchen, while a glass door leads to the outdoor patio.

Situated between the living room and dining area, the modernized kitchen features colorful cabinetry, along with updated appliances and fixtures.
