A 1930s Spanish-Style Home Designed by Lionel Pries
Located in a historic neighbourhood in Seattle, stands this 1930s Spanish-style house. The house was designed and built by designer and architect Lionel Spies. He drew inspiration from historic Spanish/Mexican design movements creating this wonderful home.
Design firm Hoedemaker Pfeiffer have redesigned this historic home for their clients. Bringing back those Spanish/Mexican influences and adding an extension for a new kitchen, butler’s pantry and sunroom.
The clients wanted to counter the historic architecture with more modern interiors. You can find many mid-century design classics in this home from designers like Guillerme et Chambron, Charles Dudouyt and Arne Norell.
The living room where old and new blend together. The wooden ceiling and terracotta floor bring the Spanish style to this room. Steel framed glass windows and doors add a modern touch to the space.
Color touches are added throughout the home with the artwork, from a variety of time periods.
The new kitchen is classic but modern, with dark blue cabinets and many windows to keep it light and have a view of the greenery outside.
A sublte color touch is added with the blue breakfast bench.
Marble and brass is a timeless combination in the bathroom.
