FROM TWEEN TO TEEN

“That’s why teenagers fascinate me – they’re like children with drivers’ licenses. Like children in that their impulses are so direct.” – Nancy Jo Sales

BEDROOM - BEFORE

“Mom, I want to redo my room.” Any parent with a budding teenage girl is bound to hear this request, if they haven’t already.  Just you wait!  When they cross the bridge from little girl to little woman, it is bittersweet as they reach new milestones and their interests begin to change.  As a surprise for her birthday, our client took advantage of her daughter’s time away at camp this summer and we got to work on transforming the room of her dreams.   read more

HANCOCK PARK - POWDER ROOM BEFORE

POWDER ROOM | BEFORE

It’s human nature that once you start beautifying an area in your home, some of its surroundings then stand out like a sore thumb.  Such was the case when we dug into the kitchen of this lovely Hancock Park home, built in 1925. After a complete remodel of their weekend cottage, our clients wanted to update their Eastside abode, including several of the bathrooms.  Bye Bye French Provençal, hello Modern Glamour… read more

GUEST ROOM GETAWAY

GUEST ROOM GETAWAY 520 347 admin

“The lust for comfort, that stealthy thing that enters the house as a guest, and then becomes a host, and then a master.” – Khalil Gibran

If ever there was a dramatic makeover, this one surely takes the cake!  The full home tour of this magical weekend getaway was beautifully featured on My Domaine.  We wanted to share a few other rooms not shown in the article as there were too many areas to fit into one story.  This guest room (as shown from the previous owners) was eons away from the taste and vibe of our clients.   From Granny’s attic to modern minimalist, we stripped away the chaos to create a soothing oasis for house guests.

Bye Bye turquoise, hello perfect white.   Clean and serene, this room is now reminiscent of a spa retreat.  No clutter, no busy patterns, a clean slate layered with sumptuous textiles ready to lay back into the sweetest dreams.  A mix of butter soft cotton and linen bedding from our favorite European vendors are interchangeable and perfect for our southern California climate.  Reversible throws in pre washed linen are begging to be curled up under with a good book.

A hand made dream catcher I found through a local artisan hangs between the beds with healing quartz points to further enhance the zen filled home.  A vintage bench serves as a nightstand for a yummy candle and fresh succulents.

White linen curtains pool onto the floor and let the sunshine spill into the room.  Hide covered wood benches from our store are just the right size for the end of the beds and can easily be moved throughout the home when additional seating is needed.  A hemp rug from Turkey warms up the cool concrete floor.

There was just enough room across from the beds for a midcentury cabinet for extra storage.  This leafy beauty found its home in one of our zinc planters.  A rattan sunburst mirror is an homage to sunny Ojai and the natural feel throughout this magical weekend getaway.  I have a feeling guests will never want to leave this oasis, we sure didn’t…

XO,
D.L.

The only time we want to see fifty shades of grey is when it comes to design. Our client fell in love with this vintage rug from our collection, and we got to work on curating the perfect pieces for this master suite.   read more
