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. Hi, can’t get enough of your reveals. Just curious if you have a standard white paint color that you use, or if it changes by light/project? What are your go-tos?

  2. This is just so incredibly beautiful. I love every detail. I’m curious, also, to see the other side of the kitchen island, the side that faces that killer range. Any chance we could get a glimpse, maybe on Insta?

  3. I love that abstract landscape painting in the first photo, is it available at your shop or can you share the artist please?

  4. I absolutely love everything you and your team designed for this house. It is absolutely stunning! The house breathes and allows the lovely architecture to be a backdrop to all the soft materials and textures. It is peaceful and I love your restraint of “over decorating”. You have a keen eye to detail which shows a level of thoughtfulness in all of your work! Keep doing what your doing girl, clearly this is what most people are looking for…this is why you are busy…keep hustlin’!

  5. You’ve done several reveals lately that I absolutely love. Will you be uploading them all onto Houzz? I know most people use Pinterest to keep up with home inspiration but I use Houzz and none of the new reveals are on there. I’d love it if you’d add them there. Thanks. 🙂

  6. You are one AMAZING designer. Your talent shows in every single detail, the beautiful combination of all elements: furniture, accessories, fabrics, colors,etc. Everything looks so interesting. A feast to my eyes! Thank you for sharing!

  7. I am curious about the white paint, too! Do you match it to the cabinets? I love how crisp this white looks, just wondering if it’s that crisp in person….it doesn’t look warm which I love! Beautiful work…this is my favorite reveal yet!

  8. Incredible! This may be my favorite yet! I really hope you come out with a book soon. I would buy it in a heartbeat!
