This recently completed project was a fun change to our normal residential renovations. The client wasn’t an actual user, so we had fun stylizing this space for ourselves. Maximizing functionality by relocating the stackable washer and dryer closer to the underside of the kitchen breakfast counter was our favorite. Now, the user […]
This 1940’s home kitchen remodel screamed hand painted terra-cotta tiles for it’s backsplash and that’s exactly what we designed.

This loft style condo in Banker’s Hill is my second residential project with this client, a downsize from his first home. A Corporate Executive who travels and needs a place to call home, we focused on providing a hotel feel bathroom while honing in on his interests & passions throughout the rest of the space.
Interior furnishings, lighting & accessories coming together, with even more yet to come. Not all projects happen fast, or even within a years time. Shore Tower, located in the beautiful La Jolla, is still evolving.

We love to show our clients how their spaces can be transformed to their vision with the use of digital renderings in this Master Bath Remodel. I found this one to be particularly helpful. Lot’s of choices such as, should the shower tile install to the ceiling? Should we add crown molding? Is color needed […]

Spanish style home Remodel in San Diego gets a major face lift. We enjoy looking back on all the work we put into a project that maybe at the time seemed never ending, overwhelming at times and certainly frustrating with the amount of unknown surprises in these types of renovations.

There were designers and vendors from all over the country attending this event, quite an impressive group. This year, there were 18 participating firms, a bit more than the last two years combined. The BD […]
There are so many exciting features to share about this call-center office that I don’t even know where to start. I’ll give it a go, in hopes to capture the fun aspects I know are worth reading about.
The overall project needed to be price point conscious so thinking outside of the box was a crucial […]
Gray (or Grey) has really shown resilience as a high trend for several years now and has evolved in many useful forms. I’ve been asked by several clients to focus on gray in a variety of styles and installations and wanted to share some of my favorite design secrets when working with this HOT HOT […]
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!
It’s been a year since I first started teaching @DesignInstituteSanDiego and just the same, I am looking forward to engaging conversations & fresh ideas from my 3rd year students! It’s going to be a great semester from a LEED project tour to restaurant research & presentatoons.
