Preview: Colorful Contemporary Deck

Summer has definitely arrived here in Southern California- the warm weather we’ve been having will be perfect for spending the Fourth of July outdoors. At our Aspen Oak project, this newly installed contemporary deck will be the perfect spot for our client to celebrate the Fourth. We’re so happy with how this space turned out, […]

Fun, Loft-Inspired Teen Girls Room

One of the things we loved about working on our Chastain Parkway project was that each room had a distinct personality. Our clients wanted a sophisticated retreat for their master suite, guest rooms for friends and family members, and fun rooms for their children. While the young boys loved their nautical themed room, we knew […]

Custom Details: Adding Interest and Drama with Natural Stone

We love working with natural stone for its beauty and versatility. Since it is a natural material, every slab is unique, and each type of stone has very different qualities, colors, and patterns. One of our favorite things about natural stone is how much it can affect the look of a space. A simpler piece […]

Bachelor Entertaining: A Stylish and Thoughtful Guest Bathroom

When designing your guest bathroom, you’ll want to consider many of the same factors you considered when designing your guest bedroom. First and foremost, who are your guests? How long will they be staying and how will they be using the space? What experience do you want them to have? You will also want to […]

Before and After: Sophisticated Contemporary Kitchen

Today’s before and after post of a contemporary kitchen is another dramatic transformation from our Martin Lane project. When our client first purchased this mid-century home in the Trousdale Estates section of Beverly Hills, the kitchen was dark and dated, with an awkward floor plan. Although the kitchen was a generously sized area, the existing layout […]

Before and After: Crisp, Timeless Master Bath

Last week, our Wellesley Ave. clients invited us over to toast the completion of their newly remodeled master bath, which looks fabulous. The transformation was quite dramatic, thanks to an updated layout that greatly improves the room’s function and flow, a crisp white color palette with touches of grey and black, and dramatic lighting. Before […]

Before and After: Warm, Contemporary Kitchen and Family Room

This luxe, warm contemporary kitchen and family room was such a fun project for us to work on. Our client is a stylish and sophisticated businesswoman, and this space did not reflect her personality at all. The “Before” was dark, dated, lacked personality, and didn’t function particularly well. We selected a combination of intricate burled […]

Before and After: Luxe Contemporary Master Suite

Our Martin Lane project is one of the most dramatic before-and-after transformations we’ve done so far. This project was a whole-house interior and exterior remodel of a mid-century home in Beverly Hills. When we started the project, the 1980s-era interiors were looking dated, to say the least, the rooms were dark, and the house’s layout […]

Before and After: Relaxed, Traditional Family Room

The family room at our Chastain Parkway project is a comfortable, inviting space that’s perfect for entertaining large or small groups. Rich, dark wood floors and ceilings contrast with white walls and linen draperies for an airy and bright feel. Neutral furniture and organic accessories continue the mood, with pops of color for interest. Many […]

Custom Details: Lush, Modern Entry

At our Martin Lane project in Beverly Hills, we transformed a dark and dated house into a warm contemporary retreat. Inspiration for the design came from a variety of sources, including iconic European modern styles, classic mid-century California architecture, traditional Asian and Southeast Asian homes, and the house’s own hillside location and breathtaking views.
