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  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  and together we collaborated to really knock this beauty out of the park.

 , …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. I just discovered you on instagram. I absolutely love your style! This place is perfect, every little detail! I think I’m going to be brave and do a white room. What colour did you use here on the walls and trim? It looks, in the pic, like there is a tiny bit of contrast. Ps I’m in the great white north, Canada. Would you still consider white walls or a creamy white?

    Thank you,

  2. Looking through this remodel again… it feels so spacious, but so cozy at the same time. I adore the peaked roof painted white, and the open plan kitchen with that gorgeous reclaimed wood dining table is stunning!

  3. Lovely picture..If your Living Room is large enough; in order to save more space, it is a good idea to install a traditional made from premium quality wood with floral and leaf carvings. We also provide a number of designs in Privacy Panels For Home made in antique style finish. Have a look at the room divider designs at Aarsun Woods and select what best suits you.

  4. Love everything about this home. I am also in love with the couch in the family room. Where is it from?
