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

Is that a house? (They seem to be struggling to answer questions here so I thought I'd go easy on them.)

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.
