The kitchen is a shining example of this renovation's marriage of original bungalow style and new technology. Energy-efficient LED lighting and simulated-stone countertops (made from 75 percent recycled material) share space with Craftsman-style oak cabinetry.
Intricate details add interest to the clean lines of Craftsman-style furnishings: the four-poster bed's carved columns, the antique trunk's painted facade, and the traditional highboy's curvy drawer pulls. The bedroom's large bay window allows plenty of California sun to fill the space.
Today's eco-friendly home solutions (low-flow fixtures and LED light bulbs) enhance the vintage charm of classic black-and-white tile and a claw-foot soaking tub in this master bath. Chocolate-stained oak and oil-rubbed-bronze finishes play off hints of spring green.
