Interior Design - Getting Ready for Fall

Written by

Like many of you, I, also like to do some fall decorating. I don’t go over the top with what I do, but rather add to enhance what I already have. Luckily, my design palette already has the rich, warm colors of the fall.

Design Show and their pitfalls

Written by

Quite a few years ago I met a client who wanted to decorate her new condo. She was very determined with the type of style and color palette desired. That’s usually a good thing and can sometimes be half the battle. Not this time. She spent countless hours watching various design shows looking for style, colors and even lead times and budgets.

No matter where or what we call home, we all deserve a peaceful place to relax and recharge. This just happens to be a one bedroom condo.

Interior Design - Southwest No More

Written by

A few years ago I was sent to Albuquerque to help a client with a new home. With that location came the usual design style. Stucco and adobe style fireplaces everywhere.

Marina on a Dime

Written by

A few years ago I moved a client from her home to a newer condo. She needed to downsize and simplify her life. The condo was really transformed into a great space. Recently that same client contacted me to work on another, smaller space. This time the budget was pennies in comparison to the last project. In fact it was less than $3000. I was lucky in the fact that I knew her style and taste and had a few leftover pieces to work with.

A Room with a View - Before & After

Written by

A few years ago I was contracted to work on a house in the hills. The residence hadn’t been touched in over 20 years and with that came all the usual suspects. It was full of the 1990’s design aesthetic; Berber carpet, a mauve and sea foam color palette along with travertine furnishings. I knew I had my work cut out for me. It was a challenge.

Room Makeover - Make a Wish

Written by

Giving Back

A few years ago, a good friend of mine was a volunteer at Make A Wish. She was given the task of doing a room makeover for a lovely teen girl here in LA. Unfortunately, she didn’t know where to start. My phone rang late one night asking for my help. Without any hesitation, I jumped at the chance to help my friend create a new bedroom for the more than deserving teen.

Just hearing and saying the word Marsala evokes a sense of warmth, comfort and family. Smells of Sunday dinners with a table full of pastas fills the air with family and friends.

A Smart Kitchen Design

Written by

I recently worked with a repeat client to completely change the look and style of her kitchen. What was once a very outdated kitchen of the 70’s became a space that reflects not only the sign of the times, but beyond. Maple cabinets, white appliances paired with a tile floor and counters are no longer.

I love this space. It reminds me of an apartment I did years ago. It was a small studio apartment and I really needed to be creative with the space planning. This space is very bright and cheerful. Plenty of lighting is key to make this space function well. With tons of storage space, it allows both areas to be set up for multi-use.
