California Mission
Meets Period Antiques

The objective was clear - integrate the client's precious period antiques from her grandmother into her newly renovated Old Spanish style home. The recipe, however, was fairly complex. Put new tiles which looked like old ones around the fireplace (which never had any). Sprinkle around the living room some older dark wood tables amongst the cool as ice modern coffee table and commercial fabrics. Add new antique accessories to compliment the beloved oil paintings given generously by her mother-in-law. A few stately window treatments and this is now what one could call a living room for both entertaining and relaxing as well.

The master bedroom suite had it's own share of delicate antiques. To soften their presence, a full wall of hand-beaded silk drapery was added, along with sheer Roman shades over the windows. An open iron headboard let's air and light in from the window behind.

To soothe away the cares of the day, a deep tub surrounded by stone, along with a found antique chandelier, continue the civil pleasures of the home. Special touches include inlaid mother-of-pearl backsplash tiles and crystal beads hanging from the silk Roman window shades.

Perhaps the recipe was not as complicated after all. 'Just a little of this and a little of that.'
