This was a favorite bedroom suite I designed in a 1910 Craftsman home in San Marino California. I played up the wonderful quality of light by using a neutral palette of butter, cream and soft whites. The bedroom has corner windows and french doors opening to a balcony on the second floor, I covered the windows with roman shades made from light gauze fabric woven from bamboo fiber.

In the bathroom we restored the original claw foot tub and pedestal sink, the walls are painted in a large argyle pattern with two tones of butter cream. The ceiling fixture is a wonderful gilded wood sunburst.

The most fantastic built in closets / dressing rooms were typical in this vintage of house

The sleigh bed is stainless steel with crisp white linens, sisal area rug on the original bleach wood floors and a cream linen rug is serving as table skirt for the bedside table.

Relaxed, sophisticated, Inviting . . .



The latest work by artist Paul Schick, 6' x 8' manzanita organic sculpture.

This is an earlier work by Paul in my collection at home, I love the juxtaposition between the organic sculpture and antique pottery figure. To see more of Paul's work go here.


BUGS !!!

For those of you who did not get up to watch Sunday morning on CBS, I thought I would share my favorite artist of the month. Christopher Marley from Salem Oregon is one talented man behind the very successful Pheromone gallery. Its all about bugs, and other treasures from the natural world. As a designer I appreciate the fantastic color and amazing design Christopher presents with his work, each piece is an inspired work of art. Check out the latest work at the Pheromone gallery here.
