Furniture and Finish Boards for Mediterranean Home in Newport Coast

By , November 27, 2012 12:45 pm

We recently had the opportunity to present an entire house design board for a gorgeous home in Newport Coast in Crystal Cove!  This was our first chance to really do something beautiful in Orange County for a change from the LA scenery.  The Mediterranean Villa style homes there are all breathtaking and many with an ocean view – very peaceful!

We wanted to design something that felt comfortable and warm that also coordinated with the taste of our client and the architecture of the house.  They brought in a Feng Shui expert to guide us in making thoughtful design choices throughout the process.  Please take a look at what we chose to present to our client for furniture, fabrics and finishes throughout!

Custom Interior Designs including Kitchen and Bathrooms in Arcadia

By , August 6, 2012 2:06 pm

We did a remodel for an entire home in Arcadia, CA for a very sweet family that wanted their home done with modern touches, distinctive finishes and user-friendly space planning.  We worked closely with the architect and contractors to help the family create their dream home and this is what came up with!  This interior design project was a lot of fun and it’s great to see that beautiful and modern can also be budget-friendly!

L.A. stands for Luxurious Apartment!

By , August 3, 2010 9:21 pm

Los Angeles is known for high-end glamour and funky retreats.  Our client Amber wanted a little of that incorporated into her upscale townhome where she lives in the heart of Culver City.

The furniture consists of a nice combination of custom-made products and off-the floor items.  The centerpieces of the house are custom-crafted: the semi-round dining banquette and big, comfy sofa.  In the interest of budget and time, we built around these with off-the floor items from a variety of places to create a cohesive space.  We found the coffee table at a boutique furniture store in Silverlake and the guest bed right out of a modern home decor showroom.

Our client had a nice start with accessories but claimed she never knew how to arrange them or what to do with them.  We added to the collection but were still able to use many of her accessories and put them together in a way that creates a cohesive feeling.  We love the tall skinny yellow vase we found and we put it next to her Target frame and it just seems to work!

Nothing finishes a home like the unique combination of art we put on our walls.  We framed two heirloom newspaper articles from bygone eras, and found great limited edition prints by Chariklia Zarris at a nice price.  If you’re regardful, you can even mix in catalog art items like the art set above the bed – as long as you don’t one-stop-shop.

The modern and clean lines juxtaposed with whimsical and graphic interest shows off Amber’s great taste and provides her a relaxing and fun place to call home at the end of a busy day.  Creating a beautiful retreat for this L.A. hospitality professional that mirrors the elegance of her working life was our goal, and we believe it is achieved in this space!

Exterior Elevations for Venice Craftsman Residence

By , September 15, 2009 2:57 pm

Here I did two options of one residential exterior in Venice, CA for Brenda Bell & Associates.  Our client wanted to see multiple options in the Craftsman-style that already existed on her home, yet was not apparent in the front entry design.  These options provided her with some much-needed curb appeal with sophistication and cohesiveness.

Option one has a centered-step entry with a wide, wrapped porch, whereas the second option has right side steps that enter to a covered porch entry.
