What Houzz contributors are saying:
All of the decorative, nonstructural elements from centuries of construction were eliminated, including pendant lamps and chandeliers that visually crowded the rooms. New sconces and ceiling lights now provide maximum light with minimum distraction.Traditional terra-cotta floor tiles were used on the lower floors of the house, but Santalla installed espresso-stained oak on the top floor, due to concerns that the house couldn't support any additional weight.
