Home Makeover: A Mid-Century Chic Duplex House

Shana Sherwood could be a randomn name in interior design field, but she did the difference by renovating a family-owned 1929 Spanish Revival duplex in Los Feliz, a mid-century chic house.

“I thought, I’m going to renovate it,” she decided. And then she get inspired in spanish revival roots.

The almost 1400-square-foot duplex is situated on a quiet street, lined with Italian pine trees, which adds to its charm. They have a nice neighborhood and people seem happy to live there, according to Sherwood. From the start Sherwood set out to uncover the integrity of the home’s original architecture, some of which, upon further inspection, remained standing. The fireplace, for instance, which was covered by “crazy paneling” and ornate columns, revealed a quintessential revival-style hearth.

Where the architecture of the space endures its 20th century origins, the playful potpourri of furniture and accessories exemplifies Sherwood’s collected design sense. “When I first moved in, my grandmother was moving out of a giant Colonial house in Beverly Hills that she had lived in for 50 years,” explained the designer, who ended up with her impressive collection of English Regency antiques, Persian rugs, and vintage artwork.

In keeping with the home’s natural airiness, provided largely in part by its numerous windows, the designer covered the lightly-textured walls in muted tones, for example Farrow & Ball’s Elephant’s Breath in the living room and China White from Benjamin Moore in the kitchen and bathroom. “I wanted it to have a slightly adobe feel,” said Sherwood. The oak flooring was original to the home but had yellowed over time, so she bleached it. Sherwood, who typically eschews such trends, noted, “In this space, that doesn’t feel trendy architecturally, the bleached floor is actually a nice contrast.”

The master bathroom is perhaps the most emphatic reincarnation to the home’s original style. Sherwood left an original arch over the bathtub and kept the shower petite which was typical of the time period. A vintage combination of mint green and black tiles cover the walls, accentuated by a nostalgic diamond pattern.

Before Sherwood points out the appointed Restoration Hardware sconces and mirrors, visitors often assume the bathroom remained untouched during the renovation, which, despite initial hesitation, the designer feels is a compliment. “I like to think of the design as a reduced version of what would’ve been here,” she concluded, “Just simplified.”
