      Have you visited the Adamson House on Highway One? It is in a state park and is of historical significance because of the tile. There was an amazing tile factory in Malibu, Served by its own little rail way before they were even roads in Malibu. The bathrooms have been restored and they are just yummy. They look a lot like yours but in pristine condition. Perhaps you can get information on your restoration from the enthusiasts that are associated with it.

    I have to encourage you to preserve the tiled rooms as much as possible! They are such a distinct feature of the house’s period and you can do a lot with reglazing if for example you wanted to go from yellow to white.

      Agreed. Don't pull out that tile. Please figure out a way to work with it. That pink and green bathroom is TDF. I can see that all the tile is mismatched but there are definitely sources for the tile colors and style that you need, especially out in LA where this kind of architecture was very popular. I actually HATE the renovated kitchen and bath in the upper unit. Please don't do that! It looks like tacky fake castle for a mcmansion in the suburbs. To think they pulled out art deco tile to do that. SMH.

    I'm not a designer but to me the pink bathroom has an art deco feel. I think you can modernize it with a spa shower and still keep that art deco vibe.

    Gorgeous! A friend of mine who bought a 1920s Spanish house in LA had the same issue as you about the bathroom but did some research and found a company that does reproductions of 1920s Spanish home tiles. She was able to both restore and renovate her bathroom at the same time, and it’s gorgeous! Perhaps you could do the same?

      LA but I know there are so many homes with that special custom tile that there has got to be someone out there who restores those amazing tile work. They are works of art and you can’t get work like that any more.

    Gorgeous home! For the backyard: I'd remove as much of the concrete as possible (if not all, because it's in a really sad state tbh), maybe pool in the future, who knows 😉 But definitely look into what kinds of plant do well in LA climate - find a suitable ground cover that is not classic lawn (not good for the bees and uses tons of water).
    I'd use as little of the space for parking as humanly possible and do a visual divide between that and the rest of the space.

    As far as the 1920 bathrooms, you can have custom tiles made to match the original tiles! Please save the bathrooms if you restore the original features you could save the historical value of this gorgeous home you now own and show what a fabulous designer you truely are by restoring a loving historical home honoring the past that we are losing so insanely trashed into obviousness to the new garbage heaps of crap!

    For the “bounce” of the red from the neighboring house, you can add a blue light filter film on you windows. It’s just like the film you put on car windows to tint them but it will be a UV filter and you can get it with a light blue tint. You won’t really notice the color difference when you you through them,but it will strongly cut the red/orange of the house next door. Plus it will keep your furniture, wall paint, art, etc. from fading and UV damage. Oh, and it’s a cheap diy project.

      if it's a blue light filter, it will make things more warm-toned though? a blue light filter is typically slightly yellow because it's the complementary colour. yes to a blue-tinted (and UV-filtering( film however because that will have the opposite effect I suppose 🤗

      I was going to suggest the film as well. I use a 35% gey tint, which it does not even look or "feel" different as you can still see outside, yet! helps considerably with cutting down the sun rays & heat.

    BATHROOMs: get a professional to carefully remove the pink tiles in the guest bath, then go as modern as you want in there. they are probably the same color as the main bath, replace the broken and yellow tiles and embrace the pink! You can put a shower head and glass folding wall to make the main bathroom more useable without changing the charm of the existing 20s bathroom. KITCHEN keep the patterned pencil trim and swap the yellow for marble or granite. I think the floor is original linoleum and can be brought back to life, it really feels original. There is a place in LA that has restoration/ reclaimed tiles so you can check there too.

    Hi. I had a similar problem with one of my bathrooms. I found a guy who could remove the tiles without breaking them, so we took them from an entire wall that was just painted later, and we used the removed tiles to place them we're needed. You could try something like that in the pink bathroom to replace those dark pink ones that do not match the rest.
    Congratulations on your fantastic new home!

    I have two suggestions. First, for the bounce back "red room", what about painting it a shade of green? According to color theory, green is opposite red, so it would absorb the light instead of reflect ("bounce") the light from your neighbor's house and green is always a fun color to play with.
    Second, what about sanding down and refinishing the beams downstairs to match the original beams? You could probably create a stencil or something for the beautiful artwork on the dark beams. That way, the house would match itself again. 😊 Just a thought.

    I think if you paint the walls in those two rooms that the red house is reflecting into, paint them a blue or teal because blue would be the opposite of red so if you stick with that color story it should cancel that out in theory. Congratulations and may your home be as heartfelt as you are.ff

      I agree. I kept thinking about the people who had renovated the home before / lived in the home before and hoped their feelings weren't hurt! But he was very kind in every comment he made. "That's not my vibe" is not at all judgmental :)

      @Lone Fox , Yay! So glad the pink bathroom is growing on you! It's stunning! Btw, if you are looking for a good source for vintage/antique tiles to refurbish that bathroom, be sure to check out Wells Tiles & Antiques, owned by Scott Wells & Nancy Mancuso. They are brilliant at helping people source period-appropriate materials for historical renovation. And please, be so kind as to give them my warmest greetings & a hearty, "Hello!🥰" They are both wise souls & extraordinarily knowledgeable--a great resource for you!
      Btw, I think the reason you feel like you are in Europe in your new home is because it is in the lineage of Storybook-style homes that began in California, after World War I. This home is gorgeous! So glad you will be it's next steward & will take magnificent care of this amazing dwelling!!🥰

      @Tilly I agree about the cracked tile, it means that house was lived in and it has history. Just because it’s cracked doesn’t means it’s broken. Even the mismatched tile just means more history about the people that loved the house and wanted to keep it tru to the era.

    Wow, congratulations! One of the first things I did in my 1935 Spanish Revival apartment building was replace all of the plastic light switches with push button light switches from 'house of antique hardware' (some in unfinished brass, some in white). It really makes a difference having those original (or close to original) touches where you can.
    And I love that you're embracing the more segmented living spaces (as opposed to open concept). It makes for a really cool vibe, and it's also much less obvious when you haven't picked up in a certain area of the house ;). Also obsessed with some of the light fixtures!
    Good luck, and can't wait to see what you do with the space!

    I absolutely love your new home! So gorgeous and full of lovely original details like the beams and lighting. I have been watching a series on Amazon called "Restored" that follows a fellow named Brett Waterman around California while he restores old homes. He has done many in the Spanish Revival style and shows how to look for clues within the home to discover its history. The doorway you want to cut in the entry on the second floor may have been there originally. He has also worked on many kitchens and bathrooms like yours. Very inspiring. I look forward to watching you turn your new house into a home. Congratulations!

    I love Spanish style homes! Thank you for that great tour. I would encourage you to grow edibles in your backyard along with ornamental plants. That way you’ll stay more true to form in having home grown organic food within reach just like the old style villas. The courtyard is so beautiful! So many wonderful outdoor fiestas can happen there too. Bravo!!

    I know your impulse is to design, to create, to change - but so much of that house is perfect as is, I'm almost afraid to watch what might happen. Congrats on an exquisite acquisition! For backyard, def make some dirt space for plants, but a plunge pool and jacuzzi would be divine. If you don't want dirt and plants, then a gazebo that plants in pots could cover - also giving you privacy from the neighbors' upstairs windows - the jacuzzi could go in there and you could get nekkid!

I'm sure you'll come up with something that honors both your taste and the home's character!

    For the room that gets the red reflect from your neighbors home you should paint with a green tone to neutralize the red reflections since it is opposite on the color wheel. You can use a actual green paint or if you want a neutral look, white with a green undertone.

  • jen macartney

    So beautiful! Based on general color theory I believe you can cancel out the orange reflection by painting it the opposite color on the color wheel. To cancel orange, paint it blue (or blue undertone), to cancel red, paint the room with green (or green undertone). It could even just be a subtle tone that would make a huge difference!

      Is it possible to change the glass in the windows so when the light comes in the color has already been cancelled out? Then you might be able to not be as restricted in your interior color palette.

      Or just put some slightly blue tinted foil on the window glass for now. It should block out the orange, too and is much cheaper for a quick solution.

    For the backyard you should definitely build a large tall wall and render then paint white along with the house. You could also build in a fireplace area as a lot of Spanish homes have them. I’d mirror the round raised planters from the front and obviously a beautiful pool with Spanish tiles. Large terracotta pots with tall Italian cypresses would look beautiful along the back wall for a shield of privacy. Then of course lots of wrought iron furniture with mosaic tables and planted pots. If you don’t want to take up all the concrete I’d say cover over with terracotta tiles and just take up the parts were you’d wanna add ground plants. For example symmetrical box topiary around a large olive tree or something :)
