I know, I know – I’m a couple days behind the “New Year, New Me” craze… SO SUE ME. But hey, at least I’m actually doing it! I think I’m finally seeing the light about taking care of myself first and foremost. As you know, I run a full-service design firm and it’s pretty difficult to find time for myself in-between all the client correspondence and onsite visits. Sometimes I can overwork my body and mind because I never take a break!

Oh hey December?! Where the heck did you come from? Seriously – Just like that, the fall leaves (wink wink, I live in Southern California) are gone, the air turns to a cool wintery crisp (again, big ‘ole wink – it’s 85 degrees here today), and Will Ferrell is bouncing around the streets of New York City looking for Kevin Mcallister.

Since we have the holiday season coming up – I guess moments like that will have to wait a lil bit.

Can I get a drumroll please… its Before and After time guys!
#ClientHollaatLaJolla is finally completed!! We’ve been working on this house for the past 2 years and it’s the best feeling that we have happy clients in the end.

Art is a tricky one for me when designing houses. My clients often ask me to source artwork to go with their newly designed living space – which I absolutely LOVE. The art is what brings a room to life, but sometimes it’s either too expensive, or too personal, or too specific. So, when you get a chance to work with an amazing company, that offers all different art style options, competitive price points, feature emerging artists, and show up ready to hang, you jump for joy.
