Renovating an old Spanish 19020s home completely inside out, yet preserving every original detail such that the character of the home stays unchanged was my husband's dream. Updating the kitchen and the bathrooms and all the wiring and plumbing but keeping the original hard wood floors and making it functional to our needs is a challenge that my husband took on. We opened the spaces, knocking down walls that were not needed, making the living room the focus of the house. Adding texture and stucco and several coats of finishes took almost a year to get the look we were after.The arched doorways were accented with old Indian arches and a beautiful entryway, we placed two antique columns with stone bases giving a grand old world look. 200 years old Indian gates were used as garden gates, their arched shape and fantastic medieval design played against the rustic look of the house. We kept the tiles all original, along with the arches that are the highlight of Spanish architecture. The doors had to be replaced so we ordered custom door panels from India with beautiful carvings, each bedroom had a unique opening giving the house a stunning statement of design. The headboard in the bedroom was created with old Indian doors and the carved nightstands with hints of color gave the perfect element of eclectic design.
