busy!

just started working with a new client, enrique murciano,  on a quickie makeover for his new home – lots of work and fun! the house is a mid century  in the hills with an open layout,  amazing views and splashes of color everywhere! these vibrant touches were added by the previous owner, but we’re embracing the look and adding our own pops of color in unexpected places-pics to come!  this project is definitely unlike any ive worked on to date, so im really excited by the opportunity to flex my design muscles! mediaservicethemlscom

shades of grey

although kaitlin’s place is not completely finished, wanted to share a few pics –  we’re almost there! from smokey grey’s to charcoals, we were going for a neutral yet modern palette.  by adding rustic and vintage pieces throughout, the overall mix is quite interesting i think!

done!

we recently wrapped up a project for one of our client’s and friend’s, a well known celeb hair stylist, in the beverly center area.  when he bought this 1920’s spanish, about a year ago, the place was in quite a state of disrepair!

we updated the bathrooms, that was a necessity, but maintained as much of its original charm as was possible. we kept the brick fireplace wall, the vintage hardwood floors, the quaint built in’s, and refurbished as needed.

the client’s initial inspiration was drawn from the parker palm springs, but he also wanted his home to reflect his globe trotting lifestyle. by  incorporating articles and influences from his world travels, as well as mixing  in several craigslist, ebay and thrift shop finds, we created a warm, eclectic and modern space that he now calls home.

check out some scouting shots below, professional pics coming soon!

instyle

yesterday instyle magazine came out to our client molly sims’ place to photograph her, and her home office, for an upcoming issue, very exciting!  the house was bursting at the seams with racks of clothes, rows of shoes,  flowers,  lights, cameras and the rest of it! although we originally designed this office a few years back, we’ve continued to add layers in order to keep it modern, young and fun. my favorite recent finds for her office include some vibrant ikat pillows from nathan turner and a few beautiful mercury glass pieces from vintageweave, both located here in l.a.

for photos of molly, and the current incarnation of her boho-chic office, both looking fab, pick up the november issue of instyle magazine!
