Effortless Revamp after 20 years!

Effortless revamp after 20 years.   It's hard to pull off because you run the risk of making the things you're keeping look out-of-date. My client loves her  home! And the timeless and transitional decorating we did in 2000.  But after 20 years of grandkids and life, she wanted to freshen it up (not that it [...]

Anatomy of a Project

I receive an inquiry from a relocating Australian family for help with their (entire) new LA home. Not sure how long their stay will be, they lease.   I survey the empty home.  Communicating via Skype meetings from Sydney to LA, Copenhagen, Paris to Bali, I assess their needs, advising them on what to bring […]
