The kitchen is an ode to glamour. Stark white cabinetry is a nice contrast to the silver gray walls carried over from the living room. And even more beauty can be found in the details.

Cool And Contemporary Home Tips

It’s amazing how an interior can be transformed. How with the right design team, a space can go from tired and dated to absolutely breathtaking. That’s the result of the work done by Pulp Design Studios to update an old Spanish-style interior into a modern family home fit for five. Walls were moved, the main staircase relocated, and features were added to take this home firmly into the 21st century.

All was done with a steadfast attention to detail that allows this contemporary space to feel warm, cozy and inviting.

Just beyond the entry, you’re inside the home’s living room. Modern furnishings sporting sleek metallic finishes catch the eye when walking into this spacious living area. But it’s the mix of woods that create warmth in this room. From the reclaimed flooring, to the paneling around the fireplace, and accessories, like the stacked wood side table, the addition of natural elements make this living room feel grounded.
