Mediterranean Classic

Photography by David Phelps Photography.

Hidden behind gates stands this 1935 Mediterranean home in the Hollywood Hills West. The multi-purpose grounds feature an outdoor loggia for entertaining, spa, pool and private terraced gardens with hillside city views. Completely modernized and renovated with special attention to architectural integrity. Carefully selected antiques and custom furnishings set the stage for tasteful casual California living.

Ceiling height? - Would you mind telling me the ceiling height? Is it 9 feet? I am considering installing thin beams like this to my formal living room with 8 feet ceiling and wonder if 8 feet is too low. Thanks.

Hi. I think that room is closer to 10' ht or taller. The camera position is actually on the entry vestibule steps, then you step down into the media room. An 8' tall ceiling may be too low for decorative beams. You want the beams to be at least a few inches tall so they don't look too "fake". I'm 6' tall and ceiling beams on an 8' tall ceiling may feel a little too close to my head. You may want to do a "mock-up" beam out of cardboard. Maybe 24" long and paint it the color you want to finish the beams and hold it up on the ceiling to see if you like it or not before you take the time and expense of instaling the finished product.

no trim on the dark windows? maybe paint the trim the same as the walls???? I am really liking the lighter colored walls and dark accents everywhere. Maybe we could do some dark faux beams in the vaulted ceiling?
