On behalf of Infinity Drain I had the opportunity to attend a press event for the unveiling of a newly constructed home in the Hancock Park neighborhood of Los Angeles.
Bridge House LA is owned and designed by architect Dan Brunn. His vision for the construction incorporated designing a home that serves as a demonstration of innovative systems and forward thinking process.
Upon entering is the living room with a feature “living” wall.
The contemporary living room with large scale abstract artwork.
The kitchen with a dividing cabinetry that separates the dining area beyond.
I love the indoor / outdoor concept and retractable doors that opens up the dining room with views overlooking the lap pool.
The sky becomes the ceiling!
Full height windows and wall panels create interesting architecture.
A sitting room / family room off the hallway corridor which leads to the private areas (bedrooms and bathrooms).
The art lined hallway corridor leading to the private spaces.
Off the hallway corridor are the private areas, which includes three bedrooms and bathrooms. One of the guest bathrooms features a walk in shower and views to the exterior and pool. Here is a glimpse at the linear drain by Infinity Drain.
I love the sleek contemporary look of a linear drain.
Another angle featuring the Infinity Drain.
Another bathroom adjacent to a bedroom. A wall mounted toilet and flush system from Geberit.
At the very end of the hallway is the master bedroom.
The stunning master bathroom.
The sleek minimalist Infinity Drain in the master bathroom shower.
A lap pool and outdoor cooking area on the lower level of the home.
The lower level also features a complete kitchen and living space.
Just off the outdoor kitchen area this living room space is great for indoor and outdoor living.
From the living area is a corridor leading to a full bath and room.
The bathroom has full height glass sliding doors and a seamless with the floor level Infinity Drain.
A fun music and entertaining room. I love the clerestory windows.
Thank you for including me at the press preview for The Bridge House LA!
This past week I was invited to attend an event at the Getty House hosted by our Los Angeles Mayor, Eric Garcetti. The Getty Foundation in conjunction with Engage LA encourages and educates women on opportunities to get involved with city contracting projects.
I had the opportunity to meet Eric Garcetti, mayor of Los Angeles.
The Getty House is also the official residence of the Mayor. It is located in the Hancock Park area of Los Angeles. The home was constructed in 1921 of Tudor Revival architecture.
The grounds of the home are beautiful. Our event was set up outside at the back of the property.
An outdoor seating area that overlooks the water feature.
A view from the backyard with a bit of city beyond - looking towards Wilshire Boulevard.
The historic home offers some great outdoor seating and entertaining areas.
Fun outdoor planters.
Beautifully landscaped and shady outdoor seating areas.

I recently came across Home Infatuation, a to the trade luxury outdoor furnishings online site, offering cool contemporary outdoor furniture with an added mix of cool eclectic finds (more below) - that I’m currently coveting!
I love the uniqueness of this dining table and coordinating chairs. They are wicker with aluminum frames and a laminated tabletop. They are both contemporary and transitional, yet timeless. I think these are really pretty!
Another wicker table and chairs option with a more modern leg in teak - really liking this one as well!
The Dalmatia collection is more eclectic retro vibe and the chairs come in an array of powder finish coated colors that are fun!
Lately I’ve been specifying more and more hanging swings for client projects and they love them - even for indoors too!
Another chair I think that is really cool, different, and eclectic - are these Folio Dining Chairs, also powder coated and available in a few color options.
Often I’m in search of a pedestal base dining table (ideal for banquette seating too) and sometimes are hard to find (bases that are too generic, traditional) - I favor a more contemporary bulkier (= sturdier) base like this Lou Lou Dining Table. It’s available in both matte and high gloss, of commercial grade quality.
This bench style seating and table are so unique, different, and fun!
Love these lounge poufs and low table. The table comes with a recessed area for decor, storage, ice, etc.
This outdoor bar is a conversation piece and ideal for home entertaining.
I’ve been seeing the trend for more and more curved sofas in interiors and like the idea of carrying the theme to the exteriors too.
Home Infatuation also carries a range of outdoor pods, daybeds, and hanging chairs.
In addition to furniture, Home Infatuation also carries lighting, planters, firepits, decor, and more.
You can shop everything at www.HomeInfatuation.com and check out their Instagram and Houzz for more inspiration.
Home Infatuation is a to the trade and family owned business. As a designer I would be happy to facilitate if you are looking to purchase. Thank you to Home Infatuation for the opportunity to work together. They truly have some amazing finds!

Recently I attended an event at the Kohler Experience Center in West Hollywood. The expansive two story showroom showcases the extensive line of Kohler products and offers an opportunity to experience many of their products - including a full bathroom to try out a shower or bath!
Loving this very sculptural sink! I can imagine it being a conversation piece for a powder room.
A view from another angle.
Another decorative sink.
Contemporary surface mounted sinks.
Another uniquely designed sink.
My visit to the showroom was to learn about Kohler’s line of smart toilets.

Such a chic black sink.
Love the little soap dish detail integrated in this sink design.
Kohler also carries graphic tile and stone from the Ann Sacks collection.
A range of texture and pattern.
Natural and porcelain tiles.
Plenty of neutrals!
The Kohler Experience Center LAX is located in West Hollywood at 8955 W Beverly Boulevard.
The Costa Mesa Sub-Zero Wolf Cove showroom hosted us for another great luncheon event with Chef Molly.

The line includes the red knobs that Wolf is well known for.
Love the Wolf Gourmet Griddle and Chef Molly demonstrated with it.
The Wolf Gourmet Multi Function Cooker.
Love this toaster with the red knobs!
Thank you for another great event!
This past week I had the opportunity to check out Rewire Gallery on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles when I stopped by for a special event with friends.
The event featured the lighting design collection Tekio by designer Anthony Dickens.
The lighting display at Rewire Gallery.
More unique collections of floor lamps, table lamps, pendants, and sconces.
The mid century modern architecture at where Rewire Gallery is located at the eastern edge of Melrose Avenue.
Thanks for having us!
For a second time, I had the opportunity to visit the lovely people at the Costa Mesa Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove Showroom for the “Live Deliciously” event with corporate Chef Molly.
The pretty and festive table set for our intimate group!
We had a little interactive cooking demo, with the help of Chef Molly we prepped some of the ingredients for our pizzas while learning about the cooking process with hands on appliance experience.
The table set, candles lit, followed by an amazing dinner (thanks to Chef Molly) and great conversation (so happy to be getting to know everyone who works at the Costa Mesa showroom) - which is stunning and worth a visit (you too can experience the cooking demos and food tastings!).
We all had a great time!
Thank you Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove!
Last week I attended an event at the beautiful historic Beverly Hills Women’s Club on behalf of Women In Luxury Design.
Renowned architect Marc Appleton gave an amazing inspiring talk about woman who’ve become successful architects, stemming from the days when it was a more male dominated field.
Luxe Interiors + Design magazine was among one of the several event sponsors.
A table spread of yummy appetizers.
And beautiful floral arrangements from the Empty Vase.
