A 100 Year-Old Spanish Home in the Hollywood Hills

Interior designer Elizabeth Law takes us inside her beautiful 100 year-old home in California.

Built in the historic Hollywoodland development in 1923, Elizabeth Law’s home is a celebration of Spanish architectural design, seamlessly blending the past with the present.

Law’s personal signature style, characterized by a fusion of brutalist, art deco, vintage, and antique elements, creates a unique and charming ambiance in every nook and cranny. The Mediterranean influence weaves warmth and inviting vibes into the slightly over 2,000 square feet home. Classic Spanish revival arches frame the spaces, offering a visual journey that evokes both nostalgia and contemporary flair.

One of the standout features is the effortless connection between indoor and outdoor living, embodying the classic California lifestyle. The entrance opens into a picturesque courtyard, allowing natural light to playfully dance through the interiors. It's a space that exudes relaxation and captures the essence of a Mediterranean retreat.

Law’s commitment to preserving the era's essence is evident in her careful approach to renovations. Each update enhances the home's charm while remaining faithful to its historical roots. The result is a residence that pays homage to its heritage while catering to modern sensibilities.
