Del Rey home’s reinvention sets a Traditional tone


Although a white picket fence conjures a scene more likely found on the East Coast than the West, this one feels perfectly suited to its remodeled Traditional house in Del Rey. Sitting neatly behind the slats, the home has been updated inside and out. An open floor plan brings in natural light and connects the living spaces.
