Michele & Brian

Michele and Brian are combining their design styles in his L.A. Spanish-style bungalow, which includes adding functionality and improving the flow of the main floor’s disjointed layout. By the time we finished installing Spanish tile and renovating this home into a modern Mediterranean retreat, we were practically eating tapas and drinking Rioja wine.

Before & After


Michele wanted a tile backsplash, and Brian wanted a more neutral pallete and contrast in the kitchen. So, we landed here: an Iberian tile with a dramatic black-and-white design. Turns out, this compromise doesn’t feel like one at all—just an amazing feature in an incredible new kitchen.


Brian’s dining room was underused and sitting out all to itself, so creating built-in seating with a table they’ll actually use was a win-win: we gained space for the kitchen, and they got a dining space that’s both practical and stylish.


Michele requested Spanish tile for the fireplace, and, unlike the kitchen, we had the green light to go for color—and we took the opportunity, grabbing a cool blue tile for the inside of the hearth. We definitely wanted to keep the original, 1930s angled profile of the fireplace, so we reframed it and brought it forward to accentuate the look.
