This small living space was designed to maximise family living and enjoyment. A playful use of colour and texture was employed to bring the space alive and connect it to its poolside location.
Form & Function
I designed this minimal bathroom for a lovely young couple who bought an architectural vintage icon. The prefab building, now considered very progressive, called for a sleek simple remodel to unite the existing features.
Designing this space to address the clients request for a colorful bohemian look was a challenge I enjoyed wholeheartedly. Delivering a range of styles to address individual aesthetic values is always a process I embrace.
My client wanted a Mexican festival vibe in her guest bedroom to welcome family & friends. Vintage lamps & custom shades reminiscent of her childhood seaside port town were combined with fun pops of color and print.
Take Me Away…..
We created this simple comfortable bedroom using many lovely textiles and material to create a sense of warmth and cosiness. A pastel palette with tone on tone accents sweeps the room in a romantic, inviting way.
Designed with a nod to a bygone era, incorporating pattern on pattern, berber rugs and even 3 birds flying up the wall. I had fun interpreting my client’s brief to create this one of a kind space.
This dynamic wallpaper bought back comforting memories of the black & white checkerboard flooring in this homeowner’s childhood home. It also provided a much needed visual queue to direct the occupant into the hallway.
Wallpaper, antiques & stunning wall lights combine to make this a welcoming vestibule. I opened up the space by widening two doorways & constructing arches with stained glass panels designed to match existing windows.
This guest bedroom employees a combination of tactile elements to create a room with personality and depth. Classic stripes, colors, texture and props pull together for a fun fresh take on a traditional theme.
A Perfect Escape
I try not to be envious of the rooms I create for my client, but this one was tough….I could live here!
For Him & For her
This lovely master oasis was designed for a spirited couple who were brave enough to let me go bold with pattern & color. Custom bedside joinery, imported wallpaper and a bespoke behead set the tone for this lavish yet cozy space.
Simple, clean, elegant harmony combine to inspire restful sleep and relaxation in this Hollywood Canyon bedroom suite. Dream, dream away…
Inspired by the color & festivity of the Caribbean carnivale life. I styled this room to capture a true sense of delight & whimsy incorporating lots of brights & patterns in a fresh uplifting way.
I designed this tapes bar with our client to create an inviting Cuban experience. Many special features were implemented & sourced to bring to life an authentic environment.
I warned my client that we were making this guest bedroom way too comfy and guests may never leave. Plushness done right with all the trimmings in this delightful guest retreat.
Designing this family room to accommodate a number of functions required a less traditional approach. The use of the over sized beanbag provided the perfect solution, keeping the flow open and flexible for both playtime and relaxing.
Symmetry was the design tool of choice to create this welcoming entry that spoke to a promise of discovery. As you enter the space you encounter the many interesting and vintage finds that this home was lovingly layered with.
I had so much fun creating these two entry rooms for my Hollywood Canyon client. We layered the two spaces with female touches inspired by old school Hollywood elegance and glamour.
A Collected Home
This home has evolved over time, layer by layer. Collected pieces that tell the story of the owner & inspire her each and every day. This is where we find home, in the continuum of creation.
A place to read
I love this little nook I created in this client’s home. Perfect for rugging up with a good book and backlit with plenty of ambient lighting to really get you in the mood.
This elegant interior combines luxe linens with soft feminine colours to create a balanced, sophisticated and relaxed retreat. Fresh white furnishings are accented with textiles & accessories to achieve the perfect balance of seaside chic.
The brief was to create a restful slumber land for my busy executive client. A space where she could unwind and recuperate in style and luxury.
I loved creating this outdoor space for this client to unwind and reconnect with nature. The modern Moroccan theme and symbols that we played with inside the home was continued into this outdoor space with the custom water feature.
A small guest bedroom packs a punch with this dynamic fun wallpaper. Alluring the onlooker into this room from the hallway we tried to create a space with purpose as a vignette to enjoy as one journeyed through the home.
Let’s Take a Dip
Set in the foot hills of the Hollywood canyons this perfect oasis awaits. Hammocks, clear blue water, lush greenery, aqua shutters and outdoor furniture layered with exotic textiles & pillows all combine to create this ideal sanctuary.
Texture & Pattern
Great texture and pattern are a signature element which I love to incorporate in the spaces I create. Whether a bathroom or living room, when used correctly they evoke a ‘wow’ factor which elevates the room to a new horizon.
A sneak peak at my latest residential project in the Hollywood Hills. A renowned actress from Mexico, my client wanted a home that reflected her love of color and life.
Santa Monica Dreams
Inspired by the rustic California landscape with it’s earthy textures and sun kissed terrain, this bedroom evolved from a vision aimed to deliver sophisticated Cali cool.
Our client had a clear vision of creating a family home that intimately spoke to the environment outside. An minimal / industrial approach was employed to bring the exterior elements in ensuring nature was always in the foreground.
I’ve always wondered what this building in Neutral Bay was….a portable building, home or office? I was never sure. It was such a thrill to work on this progressive home & bring back to life its integrity that made it so iconic.
Rustic Kitchen Dreams
A room full of personality & charm in its own right. Custom details such as the Belgium linen sink curtain, Moroccan hand made back-splash & stained American Oak combine to infuse the space with texture & warmth.
Stunning tall ceilings, abundant natural light, sensual fabrics…what more does one want to create a sumptuous bedroom retreat.
I had so much fun creating this oasis for my clients who were inspired by the ‘Mad Men’ TV series & Palm Springs vibe. Even with the color explosion it is a very restful & balanced space where they enjoy margaritas after a swim.
Santa Monica Sanctuary
A complete head to toe remodel of this quaint beach side Santa Monica town home, right down to the last perfectly selected and placed ornament. A living gallery for my lovely client, layered with all the things she loves.
