Veneer Designs


Project Progress Lately

Since late 2015 I have been working on a handful of quite savvy and design forward projects. These were all bigger scopes with more complicated considerations which means the turnaround time for each was 4-6 months or more. It may seem like things have been quiet on the Veneer front because I haven't shown you any finished project photos in a few months, but they have actually been busier than ever. At last, I'm wrapping up these fantastic gems and in a few more weeks I will have the final glamour shots to share. To wet your appetites, I would like to walk you through what's coming your way very soon.

Hollywood Hills - First up, we are shooting on Saturday and its just so good I don't want to give too much away. An open minded client with good taste who was willing to push outside of her comfort zone to create a truly remarkable house. A house that manages to mix Laurel Canyon earthiness with the sexy slink of Hollywood glamour, while paying homage to its midcentury pedigree. Amazing. Here are sneak peeks of the entry and poolhouse only. You can only imagine what else is coming your way.


Los Feliz - twin babies on the way were the motivation that put this home remodel and furnishing into overdrive. The remodel of the kitchen and two bathroom coincides with decking out the 3 bedroom home. Its going to be relaxed, masculine, comfortable, and hella cool. Those twins are beyond lucky to be born into a family of super loving parents with an excellent vision and attention to the finest of details. Here is a view of the custom kitchen cabinetry without doors, the sweet nursery on its way to being breathtaking, and the shelves I started styling while waiting on the kitchen. I know it looks like its a far ways away from completion but realistically its safe to say it will be done in 2-3 weeks.


Oxford Square - I call this mid city project Windsor and it was the addition of a kitchen and master suite to an existing 2 bedroom house. The house was gutted to the studs and rebuilt. These kinds of projects take longer than anyone anticipates because marrying the old structure to the new can be complicated, along with updating the existing structure to current codes. Many cans of worms are opened, many city inspections slow down the progress. But the end is near and possibly in 4 more weeks they will be completed. My clients were super keen to use edgy color and material combinations. Plywood cabinetry, cement tile, cork, dark green doors. Cool stuff. Here is the view of the living room built ins and bathroom tile installs.


Redondo Beach - a new construction house I started working on last August is ready for move in. Bright, beachy, and modern with a devotion to midcentury decor. My clients are truly building the dream house they deserve and its been a pleasure helping them realize their dreams. The kitchen is a supermodel; tall and sexy with a captivating mix of walnut wood flat slab cabinetry with glossy white, lots of brass accents, adapting vintage cabinets into bathroom vanities with modern clean lines. So pretty. It just needs furniture now and it will be ready for its close up too.


Good stuff right? I'm very proud to wrap these up and show them off to you.
