Reimagined Contemporary Spanish

This Rancho Estates residence was in need of personality. Allison opted to enhance the original dramatic elements of the house and take it up a notch throughout the 7000 square foot main house and Moroccan-inspired cabana. First, she gutted every room, keeping a few key architectural elements and selecting all the fixtures and finishes in the entertainer’s kitchen, grand master bath and ensuite bathrooms. By creatively reconfiguring a downstairs bedroom and bathroom, Allison was able to add a screening room and powder room.  In adopting a black and white palette for many of the bathrooms, Allison played with deco and modern patterns using classic tile to create a fresh, bold look. The hand-painted mural in the dramatic master bath was inspired by an image of a banana leaf and artist Tina Crandall ran with it. The custom mosaic tile “rug” in the foyer is 9’ in diameter, made of marbles from Carrera to Negro Marquina Black and took nine men to lift it into place! It was the finishing touch of drama in this striking renovation.
