JMA mediterranean-living-room


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

Carpenters finished the floors in this Tuscan-inspired home using reclaimed wood with all its imperfections, polishing it to a soft patina that leaves the impression of decades of gentle use. The heavy timber beams in the great room and kitchen are also from reclaimed wood. These "old-world" elements blend beautifully and add warmth to the refined, modern materials of stucco, drywall and the square-edged styling of the interior walls and columns.

The home's sloping site offers a welcoming courtyard at the entrance, an upper patio with fireplace on the same level as the home, and a lower patio with a vanishing edge pool.

Kathryn added this to How to Use Mirrors in Home Design
Check out how the mirror here reflects the beams of the ceiling in a really artistic manner. It's unlikely that most people woud ever look into this mirror since it is placed high on the wall and yet it creates a neat addition to the decor of the space.
