A Westside Powder Room in Need of a Makeover | D.L. RheinBEFORE | BROWN CORRUGATED WALL BATHROOM

A tiny guest bath in desperate need of a makeover, brown brown and more brown!  Our clients wanted to do something a bit decadent for their guest bath on the main floor.  The results created a Powder Room fit for a queen.  Amazing what wallpaper can do, and in a small space,  it’s the perfect place to be bold and go for something a bit on the outrageous side.

AFTER | POWDER ROOM

Como Flower Flock Wallpaper in Noir by Manuel Canovas.  Black velvet blooms on a metallic background envelop this cozy bathroom and is an unexpected surprise when you enter the door tucked beneath the stairs.   The ’80’s mirrored wall was removed and replaced with a carved mirror that we lacquered in black.

A 1930's Duplex in West Hollywood Makeover Kitchen | D.L. RheinWhen I was asked to remodel a client’s rental property, I jumped at the chance. This wasn’t just any apartment, but a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 2500 square foot apartment!  They were looking to update, in order to rent it for a price, worthy of a prime location in a historic Los Angeles neighborhood.  I was given a tight budget and full creative say (woopie!) and am proud to say that I was able to accomplish my vision while keeping the expenses down.

“Perhaps all the dragons of our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us once beautiful and brave.”  – Rainer Maria Rilke

A bathroom makeover that would make any 13 year old smile from ear to ear @ DL Rhein | www.dlrhein.comBathrooms may be my favorite thing to remodel.   They are smaller spaces and therefore, people seem to be willing to take more of a risk and do something bold that makes a statement.  In this case, at the prompting of my daughter Mia, I was ecstatic when she saw a swatch of my favorite wallpaper and said, “I would loooove to have that in my bathroom!”, that she shares with her younger sister Rose.  And so the transformation begun… read more
