Before + After: Client Z to the E to the N

MERRY GD CHRISTMAS ERRBODY.

Not only is it my fave time of year, but I am about to drop my fave kinda post….THE GLORIOUS  before + after - it feels like Christmas morning ALREADY - am I right!?

Ohhhhh #ClientZtotheEtotheN… It’s been SO fun to work with this young & hip, newly engaged couple over yonder in Venice Beach. We did a whole do over on their pad with a few remodels here and there. I’m officially OBSESSED with how everything turned out and the color palette – I’d zen it up in this beach retreat any day! They wanted a laid back, California eclectic, boho beach pad and I think we gave them just that… What do you all think?

BEFORE + AFTER: OFFICE

Happy hump day y’all!

When we were demoing the new space, I really wanted to feel like a damn grown up with my own office…..so I did just that and created my own little creation station!

So……here, feast your eyes on where the magic happens. And by magic I really mean where the “Manic” happens.

Before + After: Shoppe

Did I ever show you what the new Shoppe looked like before I got my paws on it??? WELLLLLLLL lets just say it wasn’t quite my steez. I think these may be the MOST dramatic “before and afters” I have ever done and I couldn’t be any happier with how it progressed and what it became. I stuck with my fave go-to white paint, “white” by Dunn Edwards and it really created the light and airy vibe I was hoping for.

Here is a reminder of the very different “before’s”

Amber Interiors X Kohler – New Office Bathroom

As you know, we are now in our new office and retail space in Calabasas and are absolutely loving it!

We had a ton of remodeling and renovating to do prior to us being able to move in, so gutting and re-designing the space was super fun. I had an easy time landing on what I wanted the theme for the main spaces to be. Because of the lack of natural light I went with white and natural wood tones in the main spaces to keep it bright and airy. I had a harder time however deciding what I wanted to do in the bathroom and kitchen.  All I knew is that I wanted to change it up a little and do something a bit different that didn’t feel to removed from the rest of the space. Do I keep it white and crisp, or do I “push the boat out a bit” and break out of my comfort zone??? Well….I decided to really go for it and chose an all black earthing approach. I used my “Mali” wallpaper as the inspo and the Kohler “Purist” faucet in brushed gold as the accents and went for it!! I am kinda obsessed with what we all dub as the “Disco room.” A big thank you to Kohler for their support and sponsorship of this post!

Here is the result!

//BEFORE//

Office Bathroom - Before

So as you can see this bathroom needed a lot of loving! Due to the new layout of our space we had to move the door to the wall directly across from the toilet. We then covered two of the walls with brick tile which were painted a glossy black and used my wallpaper for the other two walls. We picked a really cool, funky tile to use on the floor to give a little edginess to the space.  Then came the amazing Kohler products.  I love it all, but like I said I am totally digging their amazing Purist faucet in the vibrant moderne brushed gold. Isn’t it insanely cool?!

Client Freakin Fabulous: The Guest Bath Reveal

Here is another informative and juicy post from my appropriately named  Client Freakin’ Fabulous. This time around I’m showing you some of the thought process that went into renovating their guest bathroom.

1 // I wanted to do something kinda cool in this cute little space. One of the first things that came to mind when we were pulling this baby together was adding a little visual interest to the floors to draw your eye away from the small space. PLUS having rad floors scores you double points when you can provide your guests with a rad floor for them to take a pic of their feet on for social media! I blame @ihavethisthingwithfloors !! HA!

2 // Add storage!!  Ya see….it was pretty little, and in my opinion if a bathroom is little, you really need to get creative with both storage, AND making it interesting with fixtures etc. so that it doesn’t just end up looking like an updated boring bathroom when your all done. We created this unique floating vanity out of walnut and added leather pulls for interest…and a touch of manly, masculine vibes.

3// To lighten up the room I painted the walls with Dunn Edwards white and changed the shower tile to a simple subway to keep everything bright and clean-looking. Instead of going with basic “silver” shower fixtures, we went with a matte black finish on all the shower trim and shower glass pulls. It was a lot more sleek and fit in with the whole vibe of the house.

4 //  We didn’t stop at the matte black though… Just a touch of brass was added with their faucet and some fun pendants to bring back elements of the kitchen and the rest of the house.. I love the look of it contrasted with the dark vanity and wood built out.

5 // Instead of just mounting a mirror, I wanted to do something a little more unique. We created a shelf out of walnut above the sink that would house the mirror and allow for a fancy Aesop soap and a cactus…or something a little less glamorous…like a curling iron?!

//Before and After: Client Sandy Castles//

Obvs I have said it a million times…but I love a good BEFORE + AFTER and guess what…..It’s time for another one!!!  Can I just say I absolutely loved working with and adored these easygoing clients that I dubbed #ClientSandyCastles! This house was such a huge transformation turning from a dark and dated space into a light and airy breezy beach pad. I was lucky enough to get to work with architect extraordinaire Eric Olsen and dream contractor Luke of  Showalter Construction who made this project SO great to work on. I have said it before and I am saying  it again, working with talented trades, and really trusting and easy-going clients make for the BEST projects, and Sandy Castles was no exception. It was a really amazing job from start to finish.

So what did we do? Well this house was completely renovated. New kitchen, new layouts, new floors, removed walls, added rooms and a bathroom for their sweet little kiddos. I love how every part of  this home turned out – especially the kitchen and the adorable kids’ rooms. Take a looksie and tell me what y’all think!!

Client Freakin Fabulous: The Kitchen Reveal

I have been waiting patiently to get into the nitty gritty of Client Freakin’ Fabulous and all that went down in their sweet pad overhaul. I figured we should start with a little kitchen reveal. I am gonna go through the whole process – beginning to end – showing you how we achieved an open and airy vibe for the heart of this home.

1 // The first thing I wanted to do when I saw this space was knock down the wall separating the front room and the kitchen. I wanted to bring more light into the space and make it feel more open to the rest of the home.

2 // I painted the island a darker color and added panelling to the side of it in order to make it feel a little more modern. I also wanted to tie in the panelling from the fireplace and bookshelf in the family room and the island seemed like a perfect place to do it!

3 // The backsplash tile was changed to a 2″x8″ subway instead of the traditional 3”x5” size, giving the backsplash a more unique look. A custom mixed dark gray/brown grout was used to really make the tiles stand out.

4 // Brass was added. Yes, I know it can be a bit much sometimes to add brass when there are tons of stainless appliances, but I am a believer in the mixing of metals and frequently do it myself. I think it turned out fabulous…freakin’ fabulous! ha!

5 // To really make a statement with the island I added a 3″ thick Calcutta top. However, in order to save some dough and have a surface that was a little more durable we used organic white caesarstone for the back counter.

6 // The ceilings are a little low, so I decided to forgo hanging lights above the island and instead just focused on finding a super rad light fixture to place above the dining room table. 

I love the feeling of the finished space! It’s exactly the look we wanted to give our fabulous clients. 

Check it out!

//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!
