1930s Colonial traditional exterior

1930s Colonial

An extensive remodel of a 1930s Colonial Revival residence by Paul Williams in Holmby Hills that had been badly neglected over the years. We expanded the house and restored the original Moderne interiors with Art Deco furnishings. Influenced by 1930s Hollywood glamour, we brought back white-painted brickwork, Chippendale-style railings and decorative details from the streamlined era.

Interiors by Craig Wright
Landscape by Daniel Busbin

I have noticed a lot of people use Benjamin Moore ballet white for exterior paint. Hope this helps.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Home Design: What's Your Story?
Perhaps you want to communicate a more formal and elegant persona, as the white color, symmetry and Chinese Chippendale does here.
Symmetry is restful and relaxed. There are no shifting planes and overlapping volumes that cause our eyes to jump around, never settling in one spot. Instead, our gaze is allowed to rest, relax and find repose.

if you did a colonial, on the second floor you could add a covered porch (not exactly the case in this photo but you get the idea). Could separate master for kids bedrooms.

Note Chinese influence on colonial style railing over entry. Similar to Monticello. Consider double door access to porch from the new addition in place of or in addition to large windows. We want to have a good view of our lake from the new room.
