#clientradtrad

October 18, 2016

Hey party people! So if you follow me on IG you saw a glimpse into my project “Client Rad Trad” and read my conundrum about whether I save it for that book I am supposed to be writing (HA!) or should I debut the pics now, and then ALSO put them in the book??  Well your response was an overwhelming PUT IT OUT NOW FOOL!

Because I am a real sucker for peer pressure, and giving the peoples what the peoples wants….I am officially introducing #ClientRADTRAD!!

This house was a ground up new construction build. When I was brought on to help, the owners were being led down a funky design path. Think glass “accent tile” in browns and weird yellow tones that made ZERO sense to the style and taste of this young hip family of 5. I pissed almost everybody off (mainly the builder and co.)  and not only changed all the materials I could, but ripped out a lot of what was already selected. The clients knew they didn’t like the way the designs were going, but were emotionally and financially invested in what had already been chosen, so i forcefully inserted my opinion, and made major changes. Thank GAWD I DID.  This house was a monster of a job, but I really love it! It’s my version of “traditional” which infuses a bunch of bohemian accents, killer rugs, and of course a neutral palette. I went bold with wallpaper in the Master bedroom, and went dark in the dining room, and somehow managed to make 7,000 sq. feet of house feel like a quaint little cozy cottage!

Here are the highlights from my shoot with the one and only ride or die .

  1. You keep killing it again and again! That ping pong table is dope! Pretty sure I need that in my life. Can’t wait to have your book take it’s rightful spot on my coffee table.

  2. It’s everything and so much more. By far my favorite project you’ve done, and I genuinely love all your shit! Your take on modern traditional is pretty dang awesome! Thanks for sharing! You are one talented lady!

  3. amber….this is probably the most beautifully decorated home i have EVER seen!!! oh my gosh. just stunning. so interesting to see your take on traditional…i absolutely love it and want to emulate it in my home. i must have pinned almost every image!

  4. Throwing hands up to the ixnay of the brown/yellow kitchen tiles, killin this project and proving yet again that you are A-amazing, the Queen of Design !! LOVE IT !!

  5. Bravo!!! I so wish I lived in Cali so I could go to Shoppe and give my fellow Amber a freakin’ high five for all her fabulous work. Well done. Ambulars unite!

  6. TO-DIE-FOR…as always. Please lie to me and tell me the dining room chandelier isn’t something crazy-expensive like Billy Cotton…would give my right arm for that light. Well done!

  7. Absolutely stunning. I’m always a fan of your work but knowing that this was also a new build and 7k of space makes it even more impressive. I mean seriously that is so much space/furniture/sourcing/logistics etc. I’m so curious as to how it all works with budgets. Do they give you an overall from the start or do you tell her this is what you’ll need or…?
    Anyway once again, well done. Also I finagled a trip up to calabasas this past weekend ( we are new to this coast) with my husband teasing me after he realised we were on a covert mission. Sadly, I didn’t look at the opening times for the shop. It was Sunday. Buuut I did absolutely love the pedlars fork so I’m happily looking forward to a return visit for two reasons.
