Stylish Bar

To create a stylish bar that would be perfect for entertaining guests impressively, we custom designed this built-in cabinet with slate blue lacquer finish and stripe mamara marble countertop.

Below are additional tips on how to get the look.

Cabinet design:

  • A mirrored back and floating glass shelves give a sense of lightness in the design.
  • Decorative pulls add a nice design accent to the function of doors.
  • Cabinet lighting (though not lit here) makes the display feel more special.

 

Styling tips:

  • Arrange stemware and wine bottles like a retail display (I cluster similar items as groups and leave some breathing space between them).
  • Pretty bowls to hold nuts and chocolates.

A Luxury Optometrist Office & Retail Boutique

Here’s a sneak peak into a recently completed project, Eyes on the Bloc, a luxury optometrist office and retail boutique at The BLOC in Downtown Los Angeles.

1

A clean, minimalist design was created, punctuated by artwork with optical references as a nod to the practice’s commitment of investing in the latest technology in optometry and the principal’s passion for art. The neutral color palette creates a welcoming shopping experience, while the placement of optical artwork adds just the right amount of drama and color. The striking eye mosaic panel curated by Ikonlogy Studios.

Every corner of the store was thoughtfully designed around the experience of the customer, including the bright, back wall, which was fitted with back-lit displays. This wall display transforms an often ordinary and common design piece seen in most optometrist offices into a striking focal piece for the space, highlighting the products, while giving customers the highest level of ease and efficiency while shopping.

If you’re in Downtown Los Angeles make sure to stop by Eyes on the Bloc, which offers full-service eye care and a fabulous selection of designer eyewear,

Creating a Glamorous & Peaceful Master Bedroom!

For a master bedroom in a Newport Coast mansion, we gave it a glamorous and peaceful vibe by layering in shades of grey, taupe and luxurious textures. The crisp white against the tonal colors and the different finishes and textures are important in making this an inviting and stylish room.

Shimmering taupe wallpaper in a color coordinating with the ultrasuede tufted headboard creates a rich visual depth.   While a pair of large large silky shag rugs make the bedroom enticing and cozy.

Version 2

At the window niche overlooking a garden, we felt a custom daybed (designed by Seyie Design) fitting the window niche perfectly would be the best way to enjoy this space. Using a combination of silk and velvet fabrics in different shades of grey created plush seating to enjoy a book or snuggle.

Entertaining in Style!

Entertain in style this weekend with a glamorous table setting at your Oscar party! A simple wood branch and moss can be embellished with feathers and flowers to create a dramatic centerpiece. Your decor will look as stunning as the looks on the red carpet!

For the dramatic centerpiece, I used a long branch covered with moss as the base and layered it with flowers, feathers and berries.  To keep it sophisticated still I kept the color scheme of the centerpiece a monochromatic pink.  This way it is fun and frivolous but not tacky.

A Luxury Optometrist Office & Retail Boutique

I am thrilled to share the interior branding design concept of an upcoming project, Eyes on the Bloc, in Downtown Los Angeles, CA.

Collaborating with the luxury optometrist office and retail boutique, we decided to create a minimalist design that aligned with their overall brand identity.  As a nod to the founder/optometrist’s love for art, the stark interior was punctuated with optical references, elevated as an art form, and with the company’s brand accent color of red.

The end result is a look that is unique and authentic to the company, while staying on brand!
