When this old Northern California home was renovated and redecorated back in the mid-1960s, the owners decided to take inspiration from some of their favorite destinations around the world: England, France and Spain.

By razing two tiny bedrooms and a hall, enough space was cleared to give one family’s the college-age twins an L-shaped living room of their own that was really half bedroom, half study.

Except for a dash of brilliance on the chair cushions and studio couches, the colors were natural neutrals, and the textures rough — timbers and mastic walls adding up to a rugged background for headboards made of old Spanish window grilles.

Retro 60s remodeled sleeping area in Euro style

Since there originally was no fireplace, a plaster-hooded, circular stone fire pit was built, Spanish-farmhouse style, in the center of the sitting area. (The flue was a simple pipe through the ceiling.)
