my heart is going to be ripped out when @mattarmendariz & @adamfoodstyle's home is sold and disassembled. it was a joy to work on their house with them, and that always makes for a lovely results. i think it's perfect blend of custom & craigslist, hi & lo, color & pattern, vintage, modern and antique. eclectic without screaming "look at me, look at me- i'm quirky!" (yes, blowing my own horn. it's fab so why shouldn't i?😉) #maison21 #interiordesign #interior #interiors #interiordesigner #losangeles #longbeach 📷@mattarmendariz google 1270 eucalyptus ave, long beach for listings and all the info.

As is almost always the case around here . . . there's a LOT going on. A few project that we are just finishing up and getting ready to photograph . . . and couple of homes that are RIGHT in the middle of the process - furniture being re-upholstered, drapery just ready to installation . . . and an amazing new project that is just about ready to break-ground for a multi-year remodel. Whew.
And because it's not using ALL of my creative juices . . . I'm playing around a bit with my own home these days as well.
Now, when I'm working with clients - the design process is much more linear than when I'm working on my own home. To say that my personal design process is 'fluid' is even an extraordinary understatement.
But, whenever I need to make sure that I'm still 'on target' and haven't veered to far off the mark - I like to go back to some of the first images that inspired the space. And truly images that I've been infatuated with for more than a decade.
The image above of David Linley's first London apartment is one such picture. Dark. Lush. Dramatic. Layered. Comfortable.
