I have been MIA working on all my projects, photographing two of my projects for a local magazine editorial and moving my retail space from Agoura to Santa Monica which was quite a task!!! In the middle of all that chaos I got pneumonia which slowed me down a bit. I’m on the road to recovery and I am so excited to share with you this project that I just completed and had photographed.
How I met these clients is a funny story, I had a retail store a couple of years ago and she came in because she wanted to buy some mirrors for her bedroom and we ended up completely redoing her Family Room, Dining Room, Veranda and her entire Outdoor Furniture. We are about to gut the Powder Room. The clincher is we never got around to picking those two mirrors that she wanted for her bedroom!
The house is Mediterranean/Traditional style and needed to be updated and a little more Glamorous to fit my client’s personality. They are a young hip couple, she owns three fabulous clothing stores here in Southern California and he is a real estate mogul. With all of that they were a great couple to work with and open to all of my ideas!!!
We wanted the dining room to be modern but still keeping in the Mediterranean/Traditional style with a Glamorized twist.
We started with the pair of Louis Philippe mirrors from Big Daddy’s and this fabulous mica wallpaper from Romo that we fell in love with. I designed the two buffets and had them custom made with a specialty finish on both. She entertains a lot so she wanted a large dining table to seat up to sixteen people. The host and hostess chairs are from Gregorius Pineo (on casters) and are a dream to sit in. The chandelier and sconces are from Nancy Corzine and are absolutely stunning. The area rug was custom from Patterson, Flynn and Martin, took four months to get but was well worth the wait.
This is the most Glamorous dining room I have ever done and my clients are over the top happy with the way it turned out. My photographer Jim McHugh did an amazing job capturing the feeling of the room.
Here are the before pictures so you can get a sense of the transformation and what I had to work with!!
