//Before and After : Client Freakin Fabulous//

GUESS WHAT TIME IT IS!!!! - BEFORE AND AFTER TIME!!

This is seriously the best part of my job. When I get to look back at what a space once was and see how a whole bunch of ideas and hard work transformed into a end result I am oh so proud of!  I seriously couldn’t be more stoked with how this beauty turned out and I can’t say enough about how amazing Clients Freakin Fabulous were to work with.  It’s so rad when you wrap up a job, and not only are your clients happy, but you realize that you have made a friend for life, and hopefully a client for life as well. I love this little fam so much, I am praying for a phone call and a chance to come work with them again. I told the clients I would come decorate anything…. a dog house, a cake, a freakin christmas tree…whatever, so long as it’s with them!!!

 Anyways, enough of the love-fest, and on to the goodies!!!

(Oh, and just FYI, I think what I will do is give the full before and after pics only now…and then go room to room later describing what we did, for those who may be interested in more than just pretty pics )

I am Pretty Flipping jealous of this house…AND am planning on showing up at the door soon, with a suit case and enforce some squatters rights!

(as always out of respect to my clients and the fact that they have paid for my services, at this time I will not be able to give sources. I hope you can understand!!)

// Client ‘Cool as a Cucumber’ Update //

We have been plugging away over at my “Client Cool as a Cucumber” pad. The end is in sight and I can’t WAIT till this house starts coming together. We have designed the entire thing and now we are on full order mode making sure we cross our T’s and dot our I’s and not screw the whole thing up! Ha!

Luckily the mood board doesn’t do the house justice!!! The vintage pieces we have purchased are off the chain and so are the custom pieces that we are designing.

Here is a little bit!

Happy Hump Day!

BEFORE AND AFTER: CLIENT CUTEST CANADIANS EVER

I wish I could show Before and Afters every single blog post. …Seriously I love seeing the transformations. It’s so nice to see the grand finale and put an end to all the work that goes into each project. Its like putting a giant check mark on the ever-growing check list of my work life. With this cute project, we were contacted to help this family (who live primarily in Canada) with their home here in Los Angeles. The family is young and hip and the house has a ton of character and charm. The master had a beige-ish grass cloth that we had to work around, so we tried to brighten up the space with blues, grays, and rusty tones throughout. The result is a traditional, bohemian, cali-cool vibe that we so dearly love around Ambular Interiors.

Pretty dramatic, no???

So much was changed and I could not be happier with the way it turned out!

And, if you missed it and want to read a little more about the project, it was featured over on Domaine yesterday.

Before and After :: Office Bathroom

Being as that I decided to up and get myself an office really quick, I was forced to think on the fly and make fast decisions when purchasing the main pieces for the office. I was at the mercy of choosing items that had no lead times and that were budget friendly.  I only had 1 month to jazzy up the joint and the bathroom was pretty gross, so we focused on getting this little dungeon hammered out and added some life to it.

Here is what went down

Client Freaking Fabulous: The Bathrooms

We are steadily moving through the entire remodel of my “Client Freaking Fabulous’s” house. We have graduated from the kitchen and the front area of the casa, and have now moved onto phase 2 which is all the bathrooms. We have thrown together some serious inspo and made some mood boards and elevations. I thought I would give you all a gander at what we have been cooking.

Client Freakin Fabulous : Update

What a wonderful long weekend that was! We had a big BBQ for my brothers B-day and labor day combined and then we went out for some kick ass Mexican food and a little bowling with some pals. It was the perfect way to say goodbye to summer…even though it’s still 136 degrees here. In work life “client freakin fabulous” has wrapped up the first phase of construction.

If you missed it…here is the house prior to them moving in …

It came out quite fancy, no?

There are still missing parts, and obviously there is no furniture….but we have some really gorgeous stuff coming in!! Can you say 9 1/2 foot walnut slab dining table!! Can you say HUGE custom brass chandelier??!! Can you say enormous custom comfy sofa with walnut legs ??!! Can you say LEATHER!!

Anyways, that’s all I got!

We are moving into the office today. Its FINAL and we will be working from the new space all week. Stay tuned for those pics as well….hopefully by tomorrow!

Introducing “client freakin fabulous”

Recently, we started a new project with some lovely clients down in Newport Beach CA. We can’t say enough about how great the whole experience thus far has been. In fact it has been “Freakin’ Fabulous” hence why we have lovingly dubbed them  “Client Freaking Fabulous”.  Literally, they are so amazing, and EASY ….our conversations typically sound like this….

ME: “Hey Client Freaking Fabulous how about this, that, and a little bit of this and that?”

CFF:” Sure, Love, Lets do it…whatever you say designer chick..you are great and what you say goes”

HA, I mean it doesn’t really sound like that…but close enough to make me very content with this project.

Anyways, here is some sad sad  “before’s” that will quickly become some killer “afters”

Office-cial

YOU GUYS!!!!! I just made what feels like one of the largest decisions in my professional career!! I signed a lease on a new design studio and retail space!!! GAAAAHH just typing this makes me feel giddy and scared and a bit proud all rolled into one giant hot emotional mess. I keep telling Bridgid and Amy (my assistants) that I feel like we are “big girls now”. I have no clue at all how this will go but I feel very official and very happy that I will no longer be working from my cavernous home office and trusting that we are taking a giant step in the right direction.

So what does this all mean??? Well I am not 100% sure, but I do know we will have the space set up as half design studio, and half Shoppe. We will set up a couple vignettes in the front of the space and have a place to showcase all of our products. We are in the works developing more products and our own private labeled goods so once those arrive we will house them here as well as online.

Because the design studio will be at the back, my clients can come visit and my employees will have access to all of our samples and working materials all in one organized location. Not that we don’t have that access now, it’s just all spread over my house, which is chaotic to say the least. Anyways, Its legit and we are all grown up over here. I can’t wait to show you the afters…but for now here are some BEFORE’S!!

Use your imagination, or trust that I will use mine as best I can to make this space awesome.

Well anyways, its ours and it’s happening so wish me LUCK!!!

Before & After “The Farewell Tribute” :: Client AWESOME ::

So for the past 3+ years I have often mentioned my “Client Awesome”. I believe I have shown some before and after pics here and there, but have never officially really shown the whole shebang or given an entire house tour. Well, finally I got my stuff together and took a trip down to the “The Awesome’s” house for a little impromptu photo shoot, and I am about to show it all!!

Why now you ask?? Well, In recent news, The lovely family behind “client awesome” Pat, Erin, Rowan, Indy, and Olive (the dog) Shedarowich, have decided to move into a new house and thus a new project is beginning. I wanted to make sure I documented all that we did here because I feel so grateful and proud that this family and house came into my life. Even though I am very much looking forward to the next project, I am sentimental. This house and these clients mean a lot to me.

Before I start with the tour, I wanted to take a sec to introduce you to the actual family that I am so fondly referring to. First of all you may already follow along with @erinmayshed on instagram, and if you do, like a thousand others, you may have already fallen in love with this family. I can attest that they are in fact perfect and indeed just as amazing in real life as I am making them sound. Patrick is the best Dad around and takes such good care of his family. Erin is a total babe, an incredible Momma with a heart of gold, and a closet to die for . We can all collectively be super jealous because she is pretty rad, Plus if you are lucky enough to call her a friend then you know you have a loyal One-of-a-kind girlfriend who will do anything for you and be there always. Rowan is a shy little guy, but is sweet and gentle and most likely will be a major heartbreaker. Indy May, the newest Shed, is by far the cutest baby on earth. The cheeks, the hair, the thighs… She is pure innocence and a “joy baby” worthy of her instagram fame. Olive the dog is a lover, and fits the family just right. Getting to know this family has been a joy and I am so lucky to get to call them close friends. 

Anyways, Let’s get to the tour.

Happy Monday Y’all. Lets all pin till we can’t pin no more!

** BTW, I have not listed sources out of respect for my clients whom pay for my services. I don’t believe it is fair to give away everything we have done in my clients homes, unless I have permission to do so, or feel it is necessary. It this case the pictures are for our viewing pleasure only.  I hope you can understand **
