Breakfast Nook

The Vibe

BRIGHT, CALMING, CASUAL

My client, a single dad of two beautiful children, wanted to incorporate a softer side of his man cave for the breakfast nook. The kids adore "Finding Nemo" while eating pancakes in the morning. Two colorful custom coral panels compliment the colorful aquascape design in the aquarium. One of the benefits of an aquarium in your home is that it can reduce stress by bringing the calming effects of nature right into the home which is just what this single dad needs.

San Diego Billiards Room

The Vibe

MASCULINE, SOPHISTICATED, VIBRANT

 My client, a bachelor and single dad, wanted his home to reflect him and this season of his life. A billiards table was the perfect solution to transform this former dining room space from purely functional to functionally fun. My client is a Lakers super fan so we ordered a custom pool table with purple felt, added autographed Lakers jerseys and even framed my clients jerseys from his football days. The pièce de résistance, is the custom acrylic artwork of The Staples Center that wraps the corner.

The powerful crack of an opening break creates the perfect atmosphere to relax, entertain, and enjoy some friendly competition.

Historic Spanish Revival

The Vibe

CHARMING, VINTAGE, NOSTALGIC

My client, a historic home lover, hired me to renovate her kitchen in this 1930's Spanish Revival home in Kensington. To honor the home's rich history, we incorporated patterned floor tiles, reminiscent of traditional Spanish motifs. The marble countertops provided a luxurious touch, seamlessly blending functionality with sophistication. To enhance the visual appeal, I opted for a tuxedo paint scheme, with crisp white cabinetry complemented by inky black lower cabinets. Vintage lighting fixtures add a touch of nostalgia, casting warm and welcoming light throughout the space. The result was a kitchen that stayed true to the home's heritage while embracing modern design sensibilities.

This soft backdrop instantly added a sense of calm and allowed the vibrant accents to stand out effectively. This blend of tranquility and style created an oasis where my clients can unwind and recharge with utmost elegance. Their Frenchie approves too!

I have the great honor and fortune of working on some of San Diego's most historic gems which are an important part of our city's cultural heritage. My clients hired me to help them restore and update this home while preserving its historical significance so that it could be submitted for historical review. The exterior was re-stuccoed and repainted in a beautiful warm white with green accents. The interior was repainted in a bright shade of white to enhance the architectural integrity and highlight the tile details throughout. 

San Diego Game Room

The Vibe

ENCHANTING, IMAGINATIVE, WHIMSICAL

We believe that every child deserves a space that reflects their personality and sparks their imagination. We are experts in creating one-of-a-kind customized kids spaces that blend imagination with creativity. In this project, we created three enchanting themes - Batman, PacMan and the Magic Kingdom. A young superhero dreams of soaring through Gotham City. Then we sprinkled a touch of Disney magic by giving this sweet girl the keys to her very own Magic Kingdom. Lastly, zoom into the PacMan themed game room where a whimsical PacMan mural becomes the backdrop to the kids playing video games, watching movies and playing the retro style arcade games. 

My client, a historic home enthusiast, hired me to breathe new life into the interior of her historic 1930's estate located in San Diego's charming Golden Hills neighborhood. We wanted to celebrate and preserve the unique architectural details, from the beautiful millwork to the brass hardware. This home exudes the essence of its storied past. Incorporating many of my clients vintage furnishings, we carefully curated each space creating a balance between honoring the homes heritage and infusing my client's personality into each space.

The Vibe

SPANISH, HISTORICAL, TIMELESS

When my clients purchased their historic 1920's Spanish Revival Style home, our mission was to reclaim its original beauty. A central component of Spanish Revival style is the contrast of dark and light. We repainted all of the interior and exterior walls in a creamy white paint. We replaced all of the lighting with original old world pieces that were sourced from antique vendors throughout the country.

Outdoor Living

The Vibe

CASUAL, COMFORT, SIMPLE ELEGANCE

OUHere in Southern California, alfresco living spaces are an extension of our homes. When they are designed and decorated well, they are the ideal spots to enjoy coffee in the morning in the warm sun or hang out and entertain around the fire pit. This space will be used year round by my client and his children so quality comfortable furnishings, comfy cushions, bright pops of color and colorful light weight throws in baskets in case it chills down in the evening create the perfect all seasons outdoor living space.

The redesigned space was divided into two zones: a workspace and a lounge space. The workspace caters to my clients needs with a large desk, storage and display solutions and vintage stadium seating. The lounge space is perfect to watch all types of sports with family and friends, with a cozy rug, comfortable seating options and a large TV center stage.

The Vibe

My clients, world travelers, collectors, artists and color lovers, hired me to help decorate their modern ADU (Accessory Dwelling Unit) aka: Granny Flat or Mother-In-Law Flat. The pandemic brought their 15 years of sailing around the world to an abrupt stop. Our goal was to make this modern white space feel collected, layered and global. A fellow color lover and maximalist, we had fun going through her collection of textiles and repurposed them as pillows and reupholstered a small accent chair to create functional art.

My client, a busy lawyer, hired me to help remodel the kitchen in her newly purchased home. Originally, this was a tiny kitchen with walls that blocked the view of the ocean. We not only expanded the footprint of this kitchen to take advantage of the ocean view but we created an open concept and added La Cantina style doors for So. Cal. indoor outdoor living. This home has nods to Japanese culture throughout so we kept it modern and clean. The Shinnoki upper cabinets bring warmth and texture to this space and Fujiwa tiles on the backsplash marry the indigo blue lower cabinets with the wood tones of the upper cabinets. We designed the kitchen island with hidden casters to open up the space when entertaining.

The image is from my client's camera roll - it is a photo taken from the front door of his vacation home in Arizona. It was the perfect image I needed to warm this space up.

A prominent feature of this design is the peninsula fireplace, which serves as a visually striking focal point, offers warmth and creates separation in this open concept home.

It's not only a cool kitchen but super FUN-ctional as well! We created a niche for the dog bowls and added a pot filler with filtered water.

A historic home for modern living.

The Modern Japanese look is simple, functional, warm, and calming with a focus on quality craftsmanship. The original architecture of the home had modern grid patterns throughout which was our jumping off point. We updated the built in shelving unit with a stately navy blue paint which offsets the beautiful live edge slab dining table and bench giving the space much needed juxtaposition by blending the hard lines with a soft organic edge. We paired iconic Nakashima Conoid Cantilever chairs with the dining table and added a sculptural light pendant for a simple but dramatic effect.

My client hired me to revitalize her lower level billiards room. For decades, it was the place where all of the kids hung out with their friends.

This is now a grown up space for entertaining and showcases the bulk of my client's original artwork.
