Urban Walk-Up Condo Progress

By |March 1st, 2014|

Payte Miller Interiors services all types of projects, large or small.  We’ve been working closely with a residential owner who has a beautiful three story walk-up style condo in a popular, urban part of San Diego.  We achieved this classic yet contemporary, mid-century modern influenced furnishings package by having the sofa, club chair and ottoman […]

Reupholster your dining chairs-don’t buy new

By |January 18th, 2014|

A client came to us bored of his micro fiber taupe colored chairs he purchased years ago, but loved how comfortable they are.  The style has a classic, clean line contemporary feel so we decided to show him some ideas on using a mix of fabrics and simply reupholster, verses searching high & low for […]

A Guys Guide to the Perfect Home Office

By |January 17th, 2014|

Inspiration comes from many places and sometimes it sprouts from an unexpected source.  I don’t typically search men’s magazines or websites but today I felt the need for some testosterone infested design and what I found was surprisingly satisfying.  I wanted to quickly share a great article I found on Primer.com titled “The Intentional Apartment.” […]

Tuscan wants to be La Jolla Beachy

By |October 24th, 2013|

Working on a La Jolla condo complex replacing all interior public spaces & residences cooridors with flooring, wallcovering, new paint scheme, lighting & art.  I’m perplexed as to how I achieve this when the lobby tile focal point medallion stays and it’s so specific.  Got my work cut out for me on this one!

Remember when I was working on the concept below for the teenagers bedroom wallcovering back in October?  Well, here is the installation and semi-installed room.  We are still working on her bedroom furniture and various components to dress up her bed…but was anxious to share the space.  Our client’s teenage daughter wants to create a […]

Solid surfaces as ART!

By |October 8th, 2013|

For an entryway focal point, our client asked for something spectacular, unusual, unique so…why not agate?  This is called Wild Agate and unlike Onyx which is a natural stone, it had gems pieced together with resin to create a surface as durable as a natural stone slab.  We intend to hang this in a wall […]

Custom Made Piano Bench

By |October 4th, 2013|

We couldn’t find the perfect piano bench for our Point Loma Nautical House whose interiors are very eclectic.  They wanted storage, dark wood legs with character, fabric to match other elements in the room, so we had one made to fit all her requests.  We installed today and it’s even comfortable!

Before & After (well, progress) shows the transformation of this charming girls bedroom. Adding some color, accent sconces & Belle Notte bedding and we’ve got life! More details to come but wanted to share the bedding especially as it arrived after waiting 8 weeks. The bolsters still in production. Wool rug, […]
