Bushes, Groundcover Offer Easy-to-Maintain Landscaping

Beverly Hills Home Features Strong Tudor Revival Details

Tudor Revival details are prominent in this Beverly Hills home, including the combination of brick and half-timber framing, arched passageways and leaded, casement-style windows. The diamond ironwork on the upstairs balcony mimics the diamond window panes often found on Tudor-style homes.

Covered Patio Area Offers Spot for Outdoor Dining, Entertainment

A round dining table offers space for additional guests and takes advantage of a covered area of the patio -- a perfect dining spot, even in the event of rain. A large lantern-style pendant light fits with the era of the home and matches sconce lighting near the exterior doors.

French Doors Enhance Tudor Revival Style of Beverly Hills Home

French doors mimic the casement windows often found on Tudor Revival homes such as this one in Beverly Hills. When open, the doors offer a chance to bring the warm California sunshine indoors.

Large Living Room with Two Functional Spaces

Since this living room was so large, designers wanted to create two, functional spaces in a single room. To define the areas, a console table was placed between the two sofas. Then, designers chose two different anchor colors-gray for one area and white for the other. The gray space is meant to be a warmer, more formal entertaining and relaxing space, while the white section is brighter and more fun-meant for a more casual gathering.

Neutral Parlor Space with Purple Accents

To create a relaxing, parlor space, designers used white walls to reflect the natural light of the space. To warm the design, a gray sofa and chairs were brought in, along with purple pillows and a purple chair that add vibrant color to the space. A gray and white rug and coffee table help to define this area, while rich wooded, traditional pieces finish the design with a touch of elegance.
