Maintaining its discrete street presence, the living area of a 1920’s Spanish Colonial bungalow is doubled by a complimentary 2 1/2 story rear addition with urbane interior. A new "North Beach inspired" kitchen and adjacent dining/family room opens to a private rear yard. A skylit stairwell displaying the owner’s vintage toy collection leads to new bedrooms, a playroom, and a private lofted master suite.

Railing detail - I really like the railing. Is it possible to get more detail on the design or more pictures? »
The gray walls add a modern feel to this traditional stairway. Again, the newel posts here lend themselves to a two-tone treatment. The brown stain is so dark it almost reads black. I love the graphic effect of the dark handrail zigzagging and leading your eye upward, and the contrast between the dark treads and white risers.
