"Any designer who does not appreciate or know about good food is not a very good designer. The planning of a meal and it presentation - the texture, the color, the tastes, the hot and cold temperatures - are the same concerns that affect an environment"

Gray Inspirations

For some reason or another, I have noticed my increased interest in using the color gray. I don't know if it's because my tastes are changing, or I am just starting to grow as a designer and my style is evolving. I have been finding spaces recently that speak to me with a soft palette of muted grays and whites. Just wanted to see if these spaces speak to you as well?

I love the elephant grey on the walls here contrasted with the black, white and tan with subtle touches of gold.
Grey and Orange are an unusual combination, but they look great together in this bedroom. I don't know how I feel about the plates on the wall... I usually reserve that kind of art piece for a dining room or kitchen.
This is quite possibly my dream bedroom. Don't you just want to fall right into that bed?

Who Doesn't Love a Daisy?

I stopped by Trader Joe's (my FAV place ever!) on Friday to do some shopping for dinner, and found these beautiful daisies. I was inspired immediately to bring them home and put them on my coffee table.

Here they are 4 days later... still beautiful and happy.

How can you not smile looking at these cheerful flowers? :)

The Side Tables Came In!!!

The Yancey petrified wood side tables from Hudson (NY) finally came in... and I am soooooooooooo in love with how they look.

The pictures don't do them justice really... they are simply exquisite.

Something to keep in mind for the next time I order these one of a kind pieces: MAKE SURE THEY ARE GOING ON THE GROUND FLOOR OF THE HOME! My poor delivery guy's were sweating profusely trying to get these 500lb (EACH) pieces up a flight of stairs. Guys if you are reading this: you don't have to work out for a month!

Yancey Project Update

So last week I did another install for the Yancey's in San Juan Capistrano. We are still waiting for a few more pieces to complete the space, but here is what I have so far:



I am still waiting on the custom coffee table and petrified wood end tables from Hudson in NYC, so please excuse the awkward furniture arrangement!

New Client: Erin in Marina del Rey

As some of you know, my 'real' job (real as in 'job that pays my bills' real) is waiting tables at Houston's in Irvine. I enjoy my job very much when I meet incredible guests who are friendly and polite. I enjoy my job even more when I get a new client by waiting on them! I had the luxury of waiting on a gorgeous, newly engaged couple the other night and we got to talking... and it looks like I will be working with Erin on her home in Marina del Rey!

The above photo is of her bedroom currently (is it me, or does she already have great taste?) that she sent me for inspiration. Can't wait to get started on this one-

New Client: Sarah in Newport Beach

I got the green light from my dear friend, Sarah to design her bedroom. I am so excited to have a client who has a clear, concise vision of what she wants. Here are some photo's she gave me as inspiration:

I must say I am already impressed with her color palette, and can't wait to put my JLID spin on her room!

Install on Saturday

Finally!!! Finally!! Finally! It is finally time to start my first install for the San Juan Capistrano project! I have been working with my client since August on his home, and praying that it doesn't rain so I can get him and his beautiful family moved in.

While I don't have any professional photography to show you (yet) I can show you some of the pieces that are going into the home.

These are lamps that are going behind the sofa on the console table in the studio (chrome)

The BEAUTIFUL sectional for the family room

Awesome/Amazing/Incredible petrified wood pieces, being used as side tables in the studio

My most favorite piece in the house... piano topped cocktail table for the studio

So wish me luck, and I will try to keep you all updated on how the install goes, and possibly snap a few shots with my camera phone to show you everything.
