We are so excited to be featured in HGTV Faces of Design for the THIRD year in a row!!! This year we are nominated for the Master Retreats category for our Bel Air master bedroom. Incase you haven't seen this project, check it out below. This was one of our favorite spaces in the home to design.
In this master bedroom we wanted to create a 70's funk meets modern mountain vibe. The wood wall treatment added an amazing layer to the room and set the tone for the oversized brass bed. We built the bedroom off of a neutral palette using earth tones and added depth by bringing in rich saturated elements to give the space its own personality. Click here to VOTE!

We are so excited to share that we are taking part in the Lido House Hotel Project, a stylish coastal retreat located in the original heart of Newport Beach. Led by Bob Olson of R.D. Olson Development, the four story, 130 room boutique hotel is under construction at the old city hall site, 3300 Newport Boulevard.
There will be five luxury residential-style cottages designed by local Newport Beach designers, and this is where we come in! The design process for our cottage is already underway… We were selected as one of the design firms and we’ve already started the design process for one of the cottages. We feel so fortunate to be involved, it’s such a cool concept and a great way to bring together the community of Newport Beach. Stay tuned for progress pictures and updates along the way!
We attended the ground breaking ceremony on June 30th which signifies the first physical step towards completing this hotel by Summer 2017! Below you can take a peek at the layout of the new property, including the location of the cottage we are designing.
