Mediterranean Revival home boasts drool-worthy interiors in Washington DC

mediterranean-revival-exterior

Barnes Vanze Architects is responsible for the renovation and addition of a 1920s Mediterranean Revival home located in Washington, D.C. Once you looked past the barrel-tile roof, the windows, doors, and interior layout were straight out of the Colonial playbook.

The new owners had a desire to authenticate this home as a true Mediterranean Revival, at the same time adding a new wing to make it comfortable for their young family. They also wanted the interior layout to provide a neutral, unfussy backdrop for their significant collection of antiques, artwork, maps, and tapestries.

What We Love: This newly revamped Mediterranean Revival home offers its inhabitants inviting outdoor living areas and luminous living spaces. With white walls serving as a backdrop to the owner’s fabulous art collection, this home is brimming with style and personality. We are especially loving the beautiful architectural elements added into this home, such as beamed and paneled ceilings for warmth and visual interest.

Tell Us: What details in the design of this home do you like most and what features would you change? Let us know your thoughts in the Comments!

Note: Have a look at another spectacular home tour that we have featured here on One Kindesign: Mediterranean revival home feels like a beach getaway in San Francisco.

Above: In the living room, criss-cross trim highlights a pecky cypress-paneled ceiling. The stain is a multi-step process mixing a couple of different stains on-site — the key is for there to be translucency by wiping the stain away prior to being fully dry. The following products can be used to re-create this aesthetic: Minwax Water Based Wood Stain: Color Slate / Minwax Oil Based Wood Stain: Color Classic Gray 271.
