Palo Alto Mediterranean Custom Home mediterranean-exterior

Palo Alto Mediterranean Custom Home

This Palo Alto home’s traditional Spanish styling incorporates multi-level roofing, with red terra cotta tiles and signature design elements, including a dramatic arched entryway and decorative grille work. Finely crafted materials take center stage in the two-story entrance salon, which features a cascading staircase rising over glowing hardwood flooring. The home’s period-appropriate architecture is punctuated by loft ceilings, plaster walls, and an open, flowing floor plan. The spacious basement recreation room is the ideal gathering spot, with a snack bar, billiards, and foosball tables. A customized home theater completes the picture, with plush recliners, ambient lighting, and a professional-quality digital movie projector.

Architect: Stoecker and Northway Architects

grey is a great neutral color and I would use another neutral like black or white plus a bold pop of color like yellow for your small apartment.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Jennifer Ott Design added this to Help! What Color Should I Paint My House Exterior?
Consider the style of your home. And the era. Some architectural styles — the previously mentioned Victorian being one of them — have intricate details that look fantastic painted in a stand-out hue. Other styles, such as this stuccoed Spanish colonial revival, tend to look best with a more restrained paint palette. Do some research and see what colors a house like yours traditionally has been painted.
Rachel Grace added this to American Architecture: Mission Revival
A quatrefoil window adds a front-and-center focal point to this Mission revival home.
