Classic Bungalow
In a Los Angeles neighborhood where the streets are named after silent film stars, it's only natural that Chris Grubb's house looks like it's straight out of a movie. He restored his 1,000-square-foot, 1920s bungalow, keeping the Spanish charm but adding a modern twist.

The archway between the living and dining room and the Spanish tile fireplace set the tone for the living room. Grubb chose a sectional sofa because it's very comfortable and has plenty of space when he has guests over.
