Before and After: Los Angeles project

I know everyone loves a good 'before & after' and boy do I have a good one for you today.  Some of my favorite projects include those that stretch my imagination and creativity.  This particular project in the Los Angeles area did just that.  Believe it or not, these clients found me through Instagram.  Truly goes to show you the power of social media!  I flew down to meet with my clients in person and to assess the full scope of the project.  My mind immediately started to churn with ways I could give this wonderful couple the kitchen and dining room they long dreamed of.  I could not be happier with the end result and my clients are over the moon!  I am so proud of this project and for any of you wondering if I travel for work, the answer is an astounding, YES!

Let's get the tour started...  Breakfast Room - BEFORE

Breakfast Room - AFTER.  I designed a custom banquette flanked by built-ins.  The Urban Electric Company pendant is a showstopper in this space!

What was formerly a wall with the sink, dishwasher and a few windows...

Now holds the most gorgeous blue La Cornue range, former windows removed and new french doors added to access the outdoors!

See the wall with the double ovens?

We opened it up to the dining room!

Say goodbye to the old fridge and cabinets...

And, HELLO to the glass front Sub Zero!

This dining room was not only dark and dated, the walls were padded and then covered with plaid fabric!

We opened up the wall between the kitchen and dining room to bring in more light to the kitchen and designed built-in cabinetry to display my clients china and collectibles.    P.S. my clients have a beautiful view of the ocean out the windows!  Heaven!

So, there you have it!  My clients were an absolute dream to work with and I am beyond thrilled with the end result.  Hope you enjoyed the tour!
