Domaine Home did a great piece on our LA Project this week, and I wanted to show you all the before & afters and share some behind the scenes action!
Our clients, Kelly and Matt, reached out to us early this summer asking for help with their new home. From Kelly’s initial email:
“My husband, Matt and I recently purchased a 1920’s Spanish Style home in LA. We thought we had a handle on what we wanted and where our design taste was leading us, but now that we’re living in the house and buying things- it’s not coming together like we planned. Basically, I don’t want to keep making expensive mistakes and then needing to start all over…”
Kelly and Matt were actually pretty into design, especially danish furniture of which they had collected a lot of great pieces over the years, but were having trouble blending their more modern furniture taste with the Spanish architecture of the home.
So our tasks were:
- Blend the traditional Spanish architecture with their existing modern pieces.
- Let the sun shine in- and brighten things up!
- Highlight the original architectural details of the home.
- Bring out their fun, colorful personalities.
We worked over email, selecting the larger items like the rug and coffee table, as well as creating a custom media cabinet and pillows. Then Valerie and I flew out for a few days before our shoot with Domaine to pull it all together.

I have to gush a little bit…Kelly and Matt are beyond dream clients- so game, so communicative and understanding, with amazing taste and a sense of fun. These photos by Chris Patey are stunning, and I have to say a huge “thank-you” to the entire Domaine team for the great feature! Finally- special Gorgeous Award to my SuperHeroAssistant Valerie who drove us all around LA making the impossible look easy, we will always have the memories of driving with a fiddle fig leaf surrounding our heads even if the experience took years off our lives!
I hope y’all enjoy this first taste of one of our favorite projects- there will be a lot more to come from our work on this amazing home that I am excited to share! As always, let me know if you have any questions.
