• Traditional Kitchen Our objective was to transform a dark and dated traditional kitchen into an elegant and functional space. Our solution included adding a skylight, larger window and glass door to frame the garden views, designing new custom cabinetry, selecting all new stainless appliances, creating a color palette of celadon green and crème with accents, and specifying new furnishings, lighting, and custom window treatments.

  • Mid-Century Modern Kitchen Our clients desired to keep their original 1950’s wood cabinetry but update their tired laminate counters and dated appliances. Our solution was to install striking cobalt blue Silestone countertops to complement the original cabinetry while providing a durable work surface for prep. In addition, existing cabinetry was retro-fitted to accept modern appliances (no easy task!) and a more functional eating bar was added. Retro Bertoia-inspired bar stools complement the vintage kitchen’s new aesthetic. Mid-Century Modern Kitchen I just love my new kitchen! I can’t stop cleaning it. K. Smith, Glassell Park, CA
  • Mid-Century Modern Kitchen Overhead kitchen cabinets originally above the cooktop made the kitchen feel dark and cramped. To create a brighter open space the bank of upper cabinets were removed and a new airy glass range-hood was installed. A full-height wall of new white subway tile with a colorful, horizontal band of custom-made glass tile gives this Mid-Century kitchen personality while visually expanding the space. New cobalt blue quartz countertops create the WOW. kitchen_p4 “The kitchen is wonderful and so much more functional than before.” K. Deiss, Glassell Park, CA
  • Modern Kitchen A cramped, tired kitchen with a dropped soffit, old appliances, ineffective lighting and lack of storage did not fit this active family’s lifestyle. Our solution was to demo the soffit, reconfigure the layout, improve the lighting and select beautiful glass tile, granite, hardwood floors and custom cabinets. The larger space became the center for this family of five’s dining and entertaining. Modern Kitchen “I just love being able to cook and interact with my children in such a beautiful and larger space, thank you so much ….” C. Hebert, Pasadena, California

  • Bungalow Kitchen A former 1970’s kitchen with oak wood cabinets, Formica countertops, vinyl flooring and fluorescent lighting didn’t inspire our client’s avid passion for cooking. We updated the space with all new interior finishes and appliances, as well as a nature-inspired color palette. A custom, seven-step paint and glaze process transformed her original oak cabinets and lightened up the space. Bungalow Kitchen “The kitchen is gorgeous and actually more than I could have imagined... All who see it ooh and ahhhh over it.” D. Marcussen, Altadena, CA
  • Bungalow Kitchen Careful research and planning with our client resulted in the installation of a cook’s delight: a new, six-burner dual-fuel KitchenAid range (much to our client’s joy), as well as a custom bronze medallion backsplash inset in crème subway tiles, a custom range hood and durable quartz countertops. Bungalow Kitchen “Thanks so much for your guidance through a project that would still be a bunch of pictures in a folder if I had not had your help.” D. Marcussen, Altadena, CA
  • Contemporary Bathroom An original overhead soffit, tile countertops, fluorescent lights and oak cabinets were all removed to create a modern, spa-inspired master bathroom. Color inspiration came from the nearby ocean and was juxtaposed with a custom, expresso-stained vanity, white quartz countertops and new plumbing fixtures. Contemporary Bathroom “We wanted a calm and timeless space but were having trouble making selections. You did a great job of guiding us with the color palette and materials. We absolutely love how the bathroom came out!” S. Wallace, California
  • Contemporary Bathroom Linear glass tiles in calming shades of blue and crisp white field tiles set vertically visually draw the eye up and heighten the space, while a new frameless glass shower door helps create an airy and open feeling.

Wallace, California
  • Traditional Bathroom The goal of this remodel was to freshen up a small and dated guest bathroom and create a French-inspired space that integrated nicely with the home’s traditional décor. The bathroom was transformed by selecting a soft color palette, elegant wall covering, new plumbing fixtures, hand-made fleur-de-lis tiles and traditional lighting. Traditional Bathroom “Now when I entertain I feel proud to have guests visit my guest bathroom. Thank you for all your assistance….” G. Beshar, San Marino, California
  • Traditional Bathroom A custom silk window cornice with sheer filters the South light and obscures an unpleasant view, while the custom-framed mirror reflects the light to create the illusion of more space.
