The traditional living room is at the heart of this Pacific Palisades Estate. A painting by Kevin Moore adds vibrant color adorning the unique oak mantle. Restoring the home’s original details in combination with contemporary accents provides a warming update to this formal aesthetic — the restored original oak mantle pairs well with a new stone slip and hearth. Additionally, the home’s original leaded glass windows were preserved and the oak frames restored.
