Just the After :: Client For Realz the Nicest People on the Planet

April 5, 2017

Can you believe it? I’ve got ANOTHER client reveal to show you!!

I’m not evening kidding, I’m pretty sure this is a record for me! 3 reveals in only a couple months, not bad. We spent the better part of last year designing a bunch of “ground ups” and major remodels, so it’s so cool to FINALLY have some proof I actually work…HAHA! Coming up, we will have our East coast client in Connecticut, our La Jolla client, A Santa Monica client, A couple Pacific Palisades projects, our Venice project, and a few other good ones I can’t wait to show you. We are all over the map and its gonna be a doozie of a year for “Reveals”.

I have been sneaking out pictures on Instagram of #ClientForRealzTheNicestPeopleOnThePlanet but here is a little more background!! This project was up North in gorgeous Lafayette, CA. This precious family lost their home to a fire a few years back. Besides being obviously totally devastated that the house was no loner there, it happened to be my clients childhood home…so it was nothing short of the worst thing ever. Its hard to describe how kind and sweet and thankful these clients were, but given they had been through so much, their gracious and loving spirit was infectious, and so we did everything we could to make their new home perfect for them. I was hired just around the time the plans were getting through the city. I was lucky enough to get to work with architect Barbara Chambers of Chambers & Chambers and together we collaborated to really knock this beauty out of the park.

 The Contractors, the Architects…literally everyone involved was so great to work with. There is not enough that can be said about working with a stellar team, and this project was a DREAM from start to finish.

As you can see, I aired on the side of going slightly more traditional than I usually do…but I have to say, being able to switch back and forth from all types of styles is so creatively fulfilling…despite how cheesy that sounds! Its what I love most about my job. Flexing that mental muscle in different ways, for different clients on each project.

  1. Wow-
    I just read about the history of how you came to create this beautiful home for these people. How sad that they lost their home- but the Silver Lining is that they found you and I can not imagine how much they must love this new home. Everything you do is so beautifully balanced in color, texture, light, everything.

  2. This is an absolutely lovely bathroom – I particularly love the taps and was wondering whether you were able to say where they are from and what the style is called? I am living in New Zealand and the tap ranges are sadly limited. What a wonderful job of the whole house the clients must have been thrilled. Kind regards, Melissa.
