Spanish Colonial House
This Spanish Colonial is in Santa Monica and was built in 1928. It went through some changes but then ultimately wasn’t touched for 50 years. That is, until designer Christine Markatos Lowe relocated from SOHO with her family and decided to lovingly restore it while preserving all of it’s charm and character.
Archways galore. Can you have too many? I love the old wood floors contrasting with the stainless steel island. And that chevron tile backsplash?
The entry is kept true to the houses roots by being light and sparse.
Materials are kept relatively unadorned and allowed to shine.
The tiled powder room and stairway are new to the home, but fit in beautifully.
The home originally only had 1 bathroom – not easy with 2 kids, so Christine rethought the entire floor and added an extra bathroom.
Believe it or not this is the mudroom, adorned with pink and green. It used to be a breakfast nook, but with a busy family I’d pick a landing pad over a breakfast nook any day!
