Inside a West Hollywood Spanish Revival

Justin Krzyston is more than a contractor. His distinct eye for design that considers the fully adorned room as much as it does the quality of the construction has earned him a unique place in the design community and has stacked his Rolodex with names like Natalie Portman and David Hasselhoff.

We got to peek a renovation Krzyston completed with his team at Stonehurst Construction and Design. It’s a beautiful little Spanish Revival cottage in West Hollywood complete with gated privacy and modern mid-century style.

Our favorite parts of this home? The clean lines that carry from the architecture—that sleek fireplace addition, the arched doorways—to the mid-century-inspired furniture. The home, both inside and out, feels classic, orderly, thoughtful.

Living Room The simple balance of this living room, with is clean eggshell backdrop, lends itself to peacefulness

Transition Notice the similarity between the vaulted ceilings and arched doorways—it's details like this that pull together a room from beneath the decor

Kitchen Krzyston and his team added about 60 square feet onto the cottage, and some of that ended up here in the kitchen

Kitchen The ceramic tile flooring is from Filmore Clark, an LA-based purveyor of US-made tile

Deck The elegant simplicity continues outside on the deck where sandy tones complement the Southern California landscape

Garden No space is wasted—even the gutters around the driveway are well-manicured

Privacy The home is perfectly encapsulated in privacy, even the driveway hides behind a locking brunette gate

Here’s what Krzyston had to say about the redesign.

What was the house like prior to the remodel?

The home was well maintained but needed a major update. The homeowners completed a bathroom remodel a few years prior, but the living spaces and specifically the kitchen were in major need of an update.

Favorite part of the home?

I love the living room—we added a fireplace in this room. I also really like the tiles we used in the kitchen from Filmore Clark in West Hollywood.

Any fantastic details that a layman might not notice?

The fireplace was part of our addition! I built a custom mantel and designed an arch detail and then plastered over the entire face so it looked as it had always been a part of the room.
