Today, we’re stepping inside this “Spanifornia” style home that is a collaboration between Michael Robert Construction and Ellie Mroz Design, located in Westfield, New Jersey. This newly constructed design/build celebrates the Southern California spirit with a Spanish twist. It is the perfect balance between old and new, mixing wood tones with milky whites, patterned textiles, and greenery.
The project team was tasked with building this dwelling among older homes in a historically significant section of Westfield. They were determined from the start that the home be as unique and classic as those surrounding it. A material palette of brick, natural woods, marbles, and metals were selected for their timeless appeal.
The 5,000 square feet of the home are imbibed with materials, design, and architectural elements that match this young family’s needs and “Spanifornia” aesthetic – modern and cool married with warm and classic. Archways, large windows and doors, and unique millwork throughout bring this look to life.
For a foodie family with a love of entertaining, the full pub, wine room, scullery, theater, and outdoor entertaining space make this home both functional and unforgettable.
DESIGN FEATURES: Spanifornia style, pub, custom kitchen, bathrooms, built-ins, basement entertaining, home theater, covered outdoor patio, indoor-outdoor living, custom built-ins, scullery, wine room, mudroom, laundry room, butler’s pantry, home office, stairway, and primary bedroom.
What We Love: This Spanifornia style home features a palette of neutrals combined with soothing beach hues that epitomizes the relaxed style of Southern California. Overall, we are loving the aesthetic of this home, from the mix of new and old furnishings to the exquisite beauty of the kitchen that is perfect for cooking and entertaining. The backyard patio is also an idyllic spot to enjoy summers surrounded by nature.
