This is my loft in my home. I have had this space go through a few changes but basically it has been an empty since I moved into my new home 2 years ago.
I have this client that came to me and said she wanted a mid-century modern design for her new 4 room office for Psychotherapy! I immediately got excited thinking how I could do a cool space with Jonathan Adler being my inspo but that idea was quickly shot down when she informed me that she was more mid-century then she was modern. She wanted more Mad Men then Jonathan Adler. (more…)
I have a client that has a home here that she uses for 6 weeks out of the year. She had seen my work in another home and asked if I could redo her home but on a tight budget since she does not use the home often. (more…)
Two years ago my client Shari asked me to design her shower and to make a statement. She is super fussy about very clean lines while still being boho. She loved white in all different shades and textures and NO color! This made it difficult to design a cool space. I went to my favorite tile store and saw these amazing new porcelain tiles! (more…)
I had a meeting at my home with my new client Laura who lives in my community.

For so many of my clients the entryway is a very important spot for them. It needs to be functional but also beautiful. Here is my entryway where I placed a storage bench for shoes and I added pillows for a relaxed, cozy look. Above the bench, I added a hanging bin for mail and magazines and a storage compartment for phones, keys and wallets. I added some photos so it wouldn’t look like a storage space but rather a cozy little nook. I also added a clock because we always like to know the time before we run out of the house. The key to good design for a space like this is to stagger all hanging items and have them all in neutral color tones. Give it a try!!
