A Rustic Mid-Century Family Room

Sometimes we get clients that are based right here in LA, who don’t want to do the full service design, yet still want to take advantage of our initial in-person consultation, along with our E-Design service. So today, we’re sharing an example of one of those clients (no, not the photo above – that’s Bri’s house that I designed years ago but it was a big source of inspiration for the client so we made it our opener photos.)

Makeover Takeover

Brady’s DIY Peel and Stick Kitchen Flooring (for under $50)

If I had a dollar for EVERY. SINGLE. PERSON that told me that I was certifiably insane for the amount of work I was putting into my rental apartment, I could quickly move out of it and into a penthouse that looks over the Pacific Ocean, while sipping mojitos and staring at the pool boy below in his red speedo. But – as reality has it, I am still single, elbows deep in DIY and decor projects in my current apartment, and I could not be happier (unless, say, that poolboy came over to help me with my projects – I digress).

The Lorey's Home

New Kitchen Project and Design Plan

A new kitchen project (three of them, actually) is underway. A lot of you are fans of ‘The Lorey’s house’, as are we. We’ve done their master bedroom, tween daughter’s bedroom, son’s room, dining room, family room and guest room/office. They always had intentions of finishing the house and renovating the kitchen so 6 months ago they called us up and said it was time. It’s going to be absolutely beautiful if I do say so myself. Ginny is the lead designer on this project and she has done such a great job of designing and project managing this job.

Beach Inspired Kitchen (INSTALLED IN 1 DAY!)

A couple of months ago I had a rather interesting kitchen design challenge, with a capital C. I was hired by LG to promote their new Black Stainless Steel series at an editors event in New York – that wasn’t the challenging part. The challenging part came later (keep reading). The ask: Design a kitchen on Pinterest then, weeks later, install said kitchen in one day/night in an event space, in New York (with lots of help from a strong design/build team). It was insane, and was full of fixable bumps and exciting problems to solve.

One Step at a Time

Guest Suite/Home Office Progress

Progress has been made in the guest room and I’d say its 72% done. It’s certainly habitable, but since I’m trying to make every room in my house/life a portfolio piece it’s not quite there yet. Let’s recap and break it down… When we bought the house this room was a terrifying mess – totally unfinished, full of storage, with layers of carpet. It’s about 400 square feet and we knew that we wanted to utilize that space.

A Floral Glam Nursery Reveal

Today we are introducing a floral glam nursery for a pretty wonderful family. Sara Sugarman (founder of Lulu and Georgia) was pregnant with her first baby (a lucky little girl) and wanted a beautiful, happy, space in which to welcome that little dumpling home. I love designing nurseries (especially with like-minded design-oriented folk like Sara) so I jumped on the job pretty fast. Nurseries are my favorite rooms to design: they are so easy and fun.

Design Plan Rejects: A New Nursery For An Old Friend

Design plans get presented, accepted, and edited, but rarely outright rejected. But it happens. So instead of throwing away a perfectly good design, I figured we’d blog about it so maybe one of you could use it. You all know this house above, right? It belongs to my friend Ian who now shares it with his fiance (a good friend), and soon to be son.
