THEME | The Andalucia is a series of Spanish Revival luxury townhomes and apartments built in 2015. Given the opportunity to furnish model apartments and common areas, Emily designed environments that were inviting, comfortable, and practical for everyday use.
THEME | To create spaces that would appeal to the Andalucia’s intended new tenants in their late 30s-40s, Emily paired traditional elements with contemporary décor to keep it fresh yet in keeping with the architecture of the building.
PALETTE | Emily combined neutrals, grays and blues with pops of color for the model units. For the outdoor and common area spaces, Emily employed a more colorful décor to complement the Spanish Revival-influenced exterior.
HIGHLIGHT | While researching historic photos for the Andalucia’s common spaces and elevator lobbies at the Pasadena Museum of History, Emily was drawn to the photographs that represented Pasadena’s rich and varied history and thought they would be enlightening to the residents.
Emily was equally inspired by a large painting by local artist, Kenton Nelson, reflecting quintessential Old California that was commissioned for the Andalucia. Emily chose fabrics and furniture to enhance the piece now displayed above a Spanish-inspired wood carved sideboard.
