Modern Hawaiian Remodel

After twenty-five years in the original design of their house, our clients were ready for an update. We had already redesigned their downstairs living space, which you can check out HERE, so this time we moved upstairs to remodel their master suite and guest room. Living only a few miles from the ocean and being lovers of Hawaii, we knew their master bedroom[...]

Elegant Outside

Bringing a backyard to life is about more than making sure there's enough seating for BBQs and get-togethers. We take into account the purpose of the space, the size, the way it connects to the interior of the home, and of course, the elements. Once we've figured out those aspects, it's time to bring our vision to life and create a space that invites its own[...]

Not Your Mama’s Southwest Style (Part 1)

When you live in a beach town, the desert doesn’t get a lot of love. But, these next clients find that a more arid terrain has just as much beauty as the Big Blue. In fact, their whole design is based around Utah photographer, Michael Fatali’s, beautiful photos of the Southwest. Sloping red rock, cacti, and orange echoing caves fill the frames hanging on the[...]

Elegant Coastal

Whenever we receive a new project that begins with an empty house, it gives us the opportunity to really envision a design that’s fresh and new. With so much open space, this next project definitely enabled us to dream a little! These clients asked for a coastal style and, while most people might picture a beachside cottage, we envisioned an elegant resort-l[...]

Mid-Century Restored

Sometimes the houses that have something unique to offer are the ones with a bit of history behind them. So, when our client had the opportunity to restore his childhood home he took it, ready to create new memories within an updated design. While some houses allow you to fill them with the style of your choice, others dictate the feel that fits best. When i[...]

More Than Just a Pretty Pool House

When you live in California, sunny days and poolside weather shine down on us most of the year. So, why not take advantage of the easy breezy sunshine with a backyard haven? This next client did just that with a pretty pool house that dazzles. Of course, this poolside bungalow is more than just a lovely space--our clients wanted something that brought their [...]

​Cozy Contemporary

When a client comes to me and presents their dream home, I love to see that dream through...especially if there's a bit of a challenge. And, this next home, definitely had its challenges! We needed to take a significant space with cool colors, such as gray and dark wood, and warm the whole look up. This couple wanted a house that was modern and cohesive, yet[...]

Ahh...Light and Airy

As newlyweds, first-time homeowners, and soon-to-be parents, this young couple was ready to create a forever home for their future family. Of course, that's what we love to do most! When we came in, this coastal home felt closed in and dark. Aiming for light and airy, we began with Dunn Edwards paint in the color Whisper to open up the space and neutral tone[...]
