This is one of my favorite projects to date. We basically redid everything except the floors in the living room and dining room, and created a beautiful and comfortable living space for this family of three. For more information, and to see Before & Afters, click here.
This was a whole-house remodel that I was involved in from inception. We added about 1500 square feet and basically gutted 90% of the house. I absolutely love the clean, modern feel of the space and how it's a true reflection of the family that lives there. For more information, and to see Before & Afters, click here.
After completing a remodel in which I consulted on things like color and materials, these clients asked me to come in and help with furniture and accessories for the main living spaces of the house. It's been a fun collaboration thus far, and we are continuing to work together as they begin the next phase of their remodel, which includes a detached rec room and bathroom. I'll update the photos as we go!
These lovely clients wanted a major overhaul to their dated living room. The walls were green, the window treatments blocked out most of the light, the furniture was dark and heavy, and the fireplace was in need of a makeover. We brightened the space with fresh paint, new tile, stone and millwork around the fireplace and brand new furniture, pillows, lighting and accessories. The result is a beautiful, sunny living room that feels like a true reflection of the sunny couple that lives there.
This project is being worked on in phases. It began with the Family Room and Breakfast table, and has progressed throughout the house. In general, my client has wanted to keep most of what she already has, but we've updated a few major pieces and done some things like paint, wallpaper and accessories to freshen things up.

Classic Portland Kitchen
This was an old Portland home that needed a major update. The kitchen was dated and dark, and my client asked me to help her create a classic, crisp room that felt like it was original to the house (yet had modern upgrades). To keep costs down, we stayed within the existing layout. We selected custom, white shaker cabinets, a black quartz countertop and white, beveled subway tile for a traditional black-and-white kitchen.
Happy client = Happy me!
We all know that purchasing an old home almost always means also purchasing some bad renovations that have taken place in the home's history. The task on this bathroom overhaul was to bring it back to what we imagine was it's former glory. We opened it up, removed the sink and tub, relocated the (new) toilet, added all new paint and tile, and created a classic black-and-white archway into the beautiful new shower.
This was a 1200 foot addition to a small bungalow in Hollywood. We created a brand new kitchen and added a master bedroom/bathroom, a powder room, a great room and a large office/loft. The homeowners were able to grow from a young couple to a family of four, with plenty of room for entertaining. For more information and photos, click here.
Cameo Court Boys Rooms
When my client asked me to decorate her twin boys' rooms, I knew I wanted them to be complimentary, but different, just like the boys. We chose color schemes for each of them, and then went to work selecting furniture, rugs, bedding, lighting and accessories to make each one unique. We decided to add interest to the walls by painting the bottom half a dark hue and leaving the top half white. We then chose a contrasting color for the curtains, whose vertical length breaks up the horizontal line just perfectly.
