Beautiful restoration of a 1920s Spanish Revival home in Ojai, California by award-winning Santa Barbara builder Allen Construction. I am attracted to how the original designer and builder placed a recessed arch above the raised panel door. It gives the door way a very unique and special look and feel, and a less costly door could be specified (vs. an arched top door). I love the coordination of colors within the clay floor and the deco tiles as a baseboard, as well. Their shape really adds a level of detail that is very uncommon.
