Sunset Hues in Santa Monica Home

This newly remodeled, Spanish Modern home in Santa Monica, Calif., takes cues from the sunset and uses pastel pink and blue accents to soften its stark white interior. Every room comes with a golden light fixture, too, which helps create a sense of cohesion and, of course, inspire thoughts of the sun on the horizon.

Contemporary Living Room With Fireplace Niche

This Spanish Modern house is home to a young family of four. The design is a graceful blend of Art Deco and midcentury styles, with fun pops of color that add life to the rooms. Here, in the living room, white space is just as important as the art pieces, helping to create a sense of peace as well as spotlighting special moments, like the niche above the fireplace.

Contemporary Living Room With Pink Poufs

A print by Rodrigo Valenzuela hangs over a glittery Art Deco console table in the living room. The niche above the fireplace gets a charming circular vase. Both pieces prove the designer's point that, when it comes to decorating a space, less is very often more.

Metallic Art Deco Console Table and Art

A gold-and-silver console dazzles, but doesn't overwhelm, in the living room, matched up with brass sconces and a simply elegant print by artist Rodrigo Valenzuela.

Living Room Fireplace With Blue Tile

To modernize the living room fireplace, designers gave it a new graphic tile surround, but kept its original shape and structure.

Mediterranean Foyer With Arched Mirror

The simplicity of this foyer's arrangement, with just a few carefully-chosen pieces, underlines the space's open, airy feel. For harmony, the classic Spanish-style arched front door is echoed in a more modern way by the foyer's mirror.

Mediterranean Stairs and Blue Rug

The stairway sports a handsome wrought iron railing, called into crisp contrast by white walls. The rug is a sea of color at the base.

Mediterranean Staircase and Blue Rug

This Spanish-style staircase ends in a beautiful pool of color, thanks to the sitting area's overdyed rug. Tabarka tile accent the stairs with a pop of pattern.

White Open Plan Kitchen With Brass Pendants

This kitchen remodel feel sun-kissed, with rich hardwood floors and brass accents warming up creamy white cabinetry.

White Chef Kitchen With Red Runner

A runner patterned in rich reds and oranges infuses the kitchen with color. Even the stove's knobs get in on the action!

Kitchen Island and Wood Barstools

The kitchen's Cherner barstools in walnut take a page from the midcentury modern style book. Brass geometric pendants bring out the wood's warm tones.

Blue Dining Room With Brass Chandelier

The dining room is the statement space: Walls and pocket doors are covered in Portola Paints blue paint with a plaster-like finish for texture. A brass chandelier is the crowning glory.

Blue Sectional and Coffee Table

The living room furniture is delightfully plush and surprisingly kid friendly! This sofa is upholstered in fabric that's resistant to spills, stains and odors.

Contemporary Living Room With Blue Sofa

Not cramming shelves full allows each of the items that are selected to be seen and appreciated. Likewise, the living room's furniture layout is comfortable, yet minimal, with plenty of space to move around and play.

Contemporary Bedroom With Canopy Bed

The master bedroom is a serene haven that mixes clean-lined, contemporary furniture with sumptuous textiles.

Master Bedroom With Layered Rugs

Contrasting woods help the bedroom from feeling too perfectly matching. On the floor, varied rugs offer an open invitation for bare feet.

Contemporary Master Bedroom With Sheepskin Rug

A stripe of sheepskin is an inviting touch of softness beside the bed. The master bedroom blends textures with a skillful eye, layering rugs and woods in different shades.

Bedroom With Custom Canopy Bed

Another way the designer helped the home feel more contemporary was by blending different woods. In the bedroom, a blond canopy bed is paired up with dark nightstands.

Contemporary Master Bathroom With Black Floor

Dark tiles in a fish scale shape create the dramatic floor of the master bedroom. For balance, the designer went with white subway tiles for the backsplash and clean white walls.
