I'm the luckiest designer. When a previous client moved along with her best friend to Calabasas, I ended up designing both their homes at the same time. The challenge was to bring their equally edgy California coolness to the suburbs, while at the same time not having their homes look exactly the same. In this large residence we collaborated to achieve a rock n' roll bohemian look with minimal remodeling or disruption to the family. The power of paint and lighting are transformative. It was exhilerating to push past the home's traditional leaning and create something truly unique. Just take a look at the before pictures.
