Best-known for their white stucco walls, red clay roof tiles, and use of heavy, rustic wood accents, hacienda-style homes have been extremely popular across the southwestern United States—as well as California and Florida—or decades. Sharing many characteristics with Spanish Colonial architecture, Spanish architecture, and Spanish Colonial Revival architecture, hacienda architecture has long history in countries like Spain and Mexico, but made its way to the United States between the 1600s and the mid-1800s.
With celebrating the rustic elegance and timeless appeal of the old-world country estates, a Hacienda interior style is often featured with high-beamed ceilings, cool tiled floors and the use of decorative wrought-iron and carved-stone. Today we are going to tour a Malibu Hacienda that is recently transformed into a serene oasis with contemporary art and comfort.
Different from the traditional dark ceilings, the newly painted light ceiling modernizes this traditional Hacienda traditional home with a stroke of freshness. The tufted skirting sofa is elegant and has a mid-century modern vibe. The plush trimmed pillows on the sofa add a layer of comfort and sophistication. We love the the neutral color palette—quiet and calming–serves as a perfect backdrop for the artworks and some of sculptural furnishing pieces.
Somehow, a custom banquette often is a smart solution to a corner space that is next to the kitchen. The black and white color scheme in this breakfast den brings in a sense of modernity to the space. The wood table and earthy-toned area rugs are warm and inviting. The brass touch on the black wall scones adds a subtle glam.
A cream natural stone table hosts a sculptural creamy table lamp and small stone objects to create a serene moment.
The plastered wall is organic, natural. The alcove area is such an interesting place for hosting a bar station.
In the kitchen, The Lacanche range and brass faucet add another layer of glam.
The lush greenery and natural wicker chairs and a stone table together create such a relaxing refugee in this outdoor living space. The contrast piping on the cushions has a contour vibe and indicates this is a well-maintained home with a high style.
