Good Design Looks Refreshing, Comfortable, and Timeless.
Great Design Works In Real Life.
We updated this Santa Monica condo with a simple, sophisticated adaptation of the Craftsman look that is ready to charm. The owners of this space sought to retain the architecture but add to its appeal. Welcoming furnishings and the innovative use of form and color meet the challenge.
As their family grew from two to four, the owners became squeezed for space in their charming and beloved cottage. Reluctant to move, a combined renovation/addition doubled the size of their historical landmark home and gave them their dream house.
CALIFORNIA POOL HOUSE
For this upscale home, we created a warm, modern environment that expanded the family living area and doubled as guest space. The wonderful mix of lines and curves is now layered into this space’s architecture and furnishings. The result is a place of balance and beauty, in harmony with its surroundings.
The owners love Spanish and Mediterranean Revival architecture and wanted more of that in their 1960's ranch house. We added details like arched openings, smooth plastered walls, built-in niches, occasional antique cabinetry, and luscious fabrics and colors to provide thoughtful references to early Spanish roots of California.
Haphazard additions to a 1926 Beverly Hills Cottage resulted in a maze of rooms and an awkward, enclosed front porch. When the owners decided to renovated their kitchen and add a full second floor, we suggested that instead of doubling their space, a reconfiguration of the existing home and a smaller addition might be answer. A collection of Craftsman furniture and a love of books set the tone for this design with bespoke cabinetry and other handcrafted details..
MADE-TO-ORDER GREAT ROOMS
Personalized design is the common thread throughout each of these rooms. Each reflects that individual approach, and provides space for entertaining and comfort for private family time. All of these spaces were designed to integrate personal style, functional preferences, and unique furnishings with the architecture of the house.
