It's a perfect mash-up of modern meets tradition, traveled meets right at home, and with craveable details like matte black walls and serene white bedrooms, this is one of those spaces that will forever resurface time and time again on future Pinterest boards. Designed by the talented Ames Interiors with gorgeous photographs by Kate Osborne, kick off those shoes and come on in! We're breaking down ALL of the dirty details including a million and one sources for pretty products so that you too, can have a home styled so very pretty. From Designer, Ames Hansen... ENTRY. There are three things that set this entryway apart from all the rest. First, the five foot wide pivot door that smoothly swivels open, welcoming you into this light and bright home. Hand-crafted from white oak, we designed the square glass pattern to be the focal point for this front entry.Second, the unique black brick floor tile. We had it laid in a straight set pattern, with contrasting grout, in hopes the lines would guide your eyes towards the stunningly tall windows ahead. The long hallway of windows are what brings us to our last unique focal point. Flooding this space with natural light, it's the best way to greet guests.Lucca Chandelier | Woven Wood StoolKITCHEN. Berkshire Linear Pendant | Cabinet Hardware | Cutting Board | Terra-Cotta Urn  | Hand Towel | Lemon Still Life | Breakfast | White Dishware | Ceramic Storage JarMUDROOM + CRAFT ROOM + OFFICE COMBO. One of our favorite corners of the home features the mudroom and craft room. Tied together with bleached oak cabinetry and sleek slate floor tile, these rooms do not skimp on design. By doing so, they become the perfect areas for inspiring creativity.MUDROOM. Imbrie Articulating Sconce | Classic Small Iron Hook | Slate Floor Tile

With endless seating, we helped our clients create a space built for entertaining. Open both sets of sliding glass doors for more room to relax and enjoy the outdoors. Jam out to some tunes through the surround sound speaker system, or cook for your friends at the kitchen island on the incredible induction cooktop. Each and every detail was executed with a purpose in mind. 

Functionality aside, we love how the materials in this space came together. The rich colors, soft textures, pops of pattern and globally inspired pieces are what bring this modern Spanish villa to life! We had so much fun sourcing elements that felt familiar to our clients who have hearts deeply rooted in Mexican culture.

HOME SALON. Because who said your passion has to extend beyond the walls of your own home? Our client has dreamed of an in-home salon her entire adult life. And we were so thrilled to take part in creating a space for her to work and her client's to enjoy.

BASEMENT KITCHEN. Downstairs you will find that although our color palettes are the same as upstairs, the mood changes ever so slightly. From Ultra-Spanish to a little more mid-century. Hence the retro fridge in the kitchen and the Malm Fireplace in the corner. Our client's wanted the basement to portray a whole different feel of entertaining. Think less sipping on wine and gabbing about The Bachelor, and more playing pool with the Super Bowl playing on the big screen in the background. Keeping the two levels feeling cohesive with one another, felt challenging on our end. But we love how it came together!Carmen Rug | Mason Pitcher | Black Stoneware Tray | Hand Towel | Doodle Planter | Cutting Board

We were asked to incorporate a lot of culture inspired elements, while creating a space that still felt fresh and up to date! The homes open style concept was created specifically, with entertaining in mind. With endless seating, rich colors, textures and pops of pattern, this soft and airy home feels calm and inviting. Reminding this couple of their relaxing trips under the sun, swimming in the crystal-clear ocean water.
