JMA mediterranean-living-room


Home built by JMA (Jim Murphy and Associates); designed by Hart Howerton. Photo credit: Tim Maloney, Technical Imagery Studios.

Extraordinary impressions of the old world were created in this Tuscan-style home. Stucco exterior walls and wrought iron fixtures give a handmade, rustic look that exemplifies the architectural style. The plaster interior walls, artfully crafted, embrace the home's romance with the past. Their surface is a blend of colors created on site with a wax patina applied to some of the walls. The remarkable feeling of elegant antiquity is aided by the home's floors, which were created from reclaimed wood. Our carpenters gave the large beams in the great room and kitchen a rustic radiance through modern distressing techniques.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Here we see an even more feminine approach to using iron in the decor. The lamps hanging here are iron. They have a slender, curvaceous design that I adore.
Notice how the shine of the stainless sink and the nickel faucets immediately draw the eye to island. The bronze-toned light fixtures are scaled large enough to fill the space of that cavernous ceiling, but their color keeps the emphasis off the ceiling. This smart mix of metal finishes invites people to gather at the island. The effect is spectacular, yet quiet.
