The overall layout of the house was inspired by a mansion in Paradise Valley, Arizona, which I have also done a post on already. The floor plan of that house is very similar to this one, although I had some of my floor plan finished before I knew about this house so it is kind of ironic they are so similar. The billiard room, butler's pantry, breakfast nook, and bar are the areas I included from this house plan even though it looks like more. Click HERE to see my post on that house.
The exterior of the house I designed would be mediterranean and would probably be located somewhere near Los Angeles. This house in Florida is one of my favorite houses in the US and I got most of the exterior inspiration from it. You can see this with the large tower as the foyer and the smaller tower to the right, along with the 2-story living room in the back. Click HERE to see my post on that mansion.
As you can see after viewing all of the houses I got my inspiration from, the floor plans are more of a compilation of plans from other houses than plans I designed myself, but they have some of my own ideas as well. So far that is all I have on my little project I have been working on and I hope this post wasn't confusing. If anyone has any opinions or input on the floor plans or what I could do to improve on them post a comment, it would be very interesting to hear what people think.
