A couple finally sees eye to eye.
She hated mid-century modern. He just wanted a cool classic chair. The only thing they could agree on was the sofa. Taking her love for jewel toned, global style and his affinity for dark wood tones and clean lines, I transformed a chilly San Francisco apartment into a warm, textured home that exceeded their expectations.
A simple palette with a focus on furniture
An eclectic mix of furniture with a French flair takes center stage in this 1930's Los Angeles apartment. Here, showroom pieces mix easily with vintage and Ikea finds, proving that luxury and bargain buys do mix. Scale, contract, pattern and textures keeps things bold and not boring.
A non-girly modern teen
A black & white backdrop is a perfect fit for this 16 year old "non-girly, girl." With a penchant for modern, her existing striped green & yellow wallpaper simply wouldn't do. We enlarged the closet, painted walls, modernized trim & molding, furnishing the space with a mix of affordable staples and vintage treasures. Simple details like adding pom pom trim to canvas drapery adds femininity & youthfulness without going over the top.
A beige kitchen goes beachy
Tired of her dated beige kitchen my client wanted something reminiscent of the nearby beach. Keeping the existing footprint of the space, we completely renovated the space with new cabinetry, flooring, glass tile backsplash, bead board, updated appliances and a beautiful carrerra marble countertop and farmhouse sink. The attached dining area was also redesigned, featuring a custom linen banquette, new lighting and a dramatic mirror.
Residential lobby gets an update
Home to multi-generational condo owners, the clients wanted a welcoming, updated look to the building's entryway that would appeal to both young and older residents. It was important to select furnishings that united the disparate architecture - from a traditional entry door, to a modern fireplace, to Mediterranean flooring. The resulting furniture feels current, welcoming & appropriate for the space.
The great indoors
This 7 year old boy's bedroom was extremely dark so we brightened the space using a light grey and white color scheme - adding a simple trim around the walls to highlight the cove ceiling and bounce light off the freshly painted ceiling. A subtle camping theme lightens the mood with a custom canvas teepee, birch tree wall decals and a whimsical felt campfire. Major decluttering, bold pattern, new lighting and a renovated closet lend to a brighter, simpler, fun-focused room.
Family focused dining room
My clients wanted a dining room that would suit their traditional tastes and host the many grandkids and family dinners at their busy home. The space was completely transformed simplifying an unsightly wall of doors by removing molding, creating a hidden door to access the water heater, and combining two tiny cramped closets into one seamless pantry. We added new wood flooring, a modern light fixture, custom banquette, rugs, accessories and generous silk lined roman shades.
