When we first stepped into this home it was crowded with furniture and felt like a cave. Our vision for this space was bright whites mixed with warm wood tones and a touch of metal elements.
The Monterey building in Coronado, California has a very Spanish feel so we wanted to stay true to that while pulling in elements of the beach. We used simple coral fans above the bed and kept the furniture more traditional.
For the living room and dining room we used soft neutrals in the furniture and curtains, wood tones for the accessories and dining table and metal elements in the media center and lighting.
In the guest bedroom we added a pop of texture with a Mongolian bench at the end of the bed. The bed and nightstands are a warm lighter wood with a pop of brass in the bedside lamps.
The bunk room in this house may be small but it sleeps three comfortably. We did a fun bunkbed with a trundle in this space that will surly create lots of sleepover memories.
What a difference white paint makes! We are suckers for a good white cabinet. It is seriously a miracle worker! Just look at these before and after pictures!!

This adorable cottage remodel was such a pleasure to design. Our client wanted a bright, beachy, cottage with pops of color so we went with a white and grey palette with pops of blue.
The first thing that had to go in this cramped kitchen was the side by side washer and dryer. We moved it into the hall closet making room for a large pantry. We added a garden window, counter to ceiling subway tile, floating shelves, updated appliances, wood floors, and widened the entry into the kitchen making the kitchen feel more open. The cabinets are painted white with a subtle seafoam green on the walls.
For the bathroom we extended the wall a foot to create a linen closet (since we lost the lined closet storage in the hallway to the washer and dryer), did floor to ceiling white subway tile, new slate floors, custom vanity, new lighting and a gorgeous blue paint for the walls.
For the living area we did a seafoam paint on the walls, all new wood flooring and kept the furniture and accessories bright and white.
Let us know what you think!

A kitchen is a haven where our families can cook together, bake, and have conversations around the dining room table. Growing up with a large family, my happiest and most important memories were in the kitchen. It's the place where I learned how to make my grandmother's pesto recipe, snuck food to my begging dogs, and played board games after dinner.
This past winter, we had so much fun designing a dream kitchen for one of our clients. The colors that we decided to combine are shades of white, grey, and black. We paired it with hardwood floors and pops of greenery - such as a bowl of apples and plants. These color combinations create a nice clean feel, but it also opens the possibility for a multi-purpose kitchen.
As for the layout, we installed a small breakfast table, large wooden dining room table, marble island, and kitchen bar. One of my favorite parts of this kitchen is the marble island! I am in love with marble. It's easy to clean and gorgeous in such a prominent area of the kitchen. It pairs perfectly with the marble subway tiles above the stove.
We are so happy with how the kitchen turned out. Here are the photos below. Enjoy!
