Now for some fun. I wonder where this lovely lady is today? Laurie McFarlin and her home were featured in Traditional Home magazine March 2008 issue. She purchased a 1920's Italianate home in California's Bay area. She hired interior designer Suzanne Tucker and architect Andrew Skurman to do the renovation. And these photos were taken by Michal Venera.
Note the added arched transoms and side lights added to the French doors. Even two years ago you can see the use of the gray paint on the doors.
What turned me on in this home was use of the color orange. You can call it apricot, melon or peach but it all comes down to a rich, plush, soft, velvet orange color. You can see it throughout the home starting with the couch.
The orange is used as a punch of color in walls and draperies throughout the home.
Even the inside of the loggia is a red/terra cotta color.
