Inside a beautifully layered and charming Spanish Colonial Revival in Los Angeles!

This 1930s Spanish Colonial Revival in Los Angeles belongs to Colette Dartnell and Rick Roskin that they share with their children. When they first saw the house, they thought it has great bones but lacked some character thanks to a bad '70s remodeling job. With a cozy, traditional house with current updates and modern floor plan in mind, they reached out to architect Tim Barber and designer Kishani Perera for help. Did they receive what they sought out for? Let's find out, shall we?

How charming and gorgeous is this home? I really love how varied and delightful each room looks! Thanks to a combination of stunning architecture such as high vaulted ceilings and graceful arched details, a colorful palette and eclectic furnishings, this home oozes style, warmth and character. Layered, thoughtfully designed and timelessly chic, there are so many wonderful inspirations to take away from this collected and global residence, don't you think? Any thoughts?


  1. Amazing how all the arches work! I especially like the living area.

  2. Such a refreshing use of color and pattern.

  3. What a beautiful renovation! I'm not usually a fan of Spanish style homes, but this one is done so well and looks very inviting.

  4. Can you please tell me the name of the outside trim color? I love it!!!
