I was recently working on concepts for a small bathroom remodel with a budget to allow for only minor cosmetic renovations. In the process of putting together inspiration and direction for the project, I came across some bold, colorful vanities — and thought — why not go for a “statement vanity”!?
This concept board was actually for a project several years ago but I still love that lavender vanity!
Bright pink is so fun and cheerful!
Yellow, of course, is happy - makes for a great kid’s bathroom.
Definitely vibrant and bold with orange and colorful wallpaper.
The balance of white and yellow give this statement vanity a very clean bathroom look.
In my search, I found some colorful vanities available ready made and online.
Super sleek and modern.
A green vanity is another statement color!
The concept board of selections for a recent bathroom project. All items are budget oriented and in stock.

A long time client of mine, who’s home I helped design awhile back with an online design for her living room, followed by her father’s family room as a surprise birthday gift - both projects involved the flat rate room design where I put together the layouts and furnishings selections and she took care of the ordering and implementing, resulted in helping with two more very recent projects: her daughter’s new home in Waco, TX and her son’s college dorm room. She emailed me last weekend asking if I could help with a fast track project. Her and her husband were going to visit their daughter for the weekend and wanted help putting both the living and dining rooms together. In just two days time I put together the furniture layouts, furnishing selections, and concept boards. She shopped over the weekend locally in addition to ordering online, and the photos below are the results of progress in less than one week (still progress, but coming together!). Two days later, she asked if I could help with her son’s college dorm room! From start to progress, below are the measurements she emailed, the layouts for furniture placement and sizes provided, and the furnishings concept boards (selections and resources emailed with).

It was great to be a among one of of the biggest group of influencers I’ve ever taken part in, being included in this year’s Designhounds group attending the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show in Las Vegas. We had such an amazing group of twenty-four girls along with Sara, Florence, and Veronika from Modenus. I had so much fun getting to know these girls and making new friends!
Thought I would share a round up of Instagram posts by my fellow Designhounds. After a whirlwind few days together it was fun to go back and look at what everyone posted, through their insights and finds from, what is, the biggest kitchen and bath trade show. So much to see and cover, that whatever it was I may have missed, was bound to catch the eye of someone else!

This past week I attended an event at Twentieth here in Los Angeles. It was for the release of the six meter Surface Table by Established & Sons, a UK based furniture company. I hadn’t been to the showroom in quite some time and so it was fun to have a look around - so many interesting and inspiring pieces! (We got a little exclusive back room tour too, shhhh don’t tell!)
A teak console stained in smoky black by designer Videre Licet.
Large pendants hang over this funky sofa in the window display at Twentieth.
A large brass screen floats across the showroom floor.
This sparkly chandelier is stunning in person.
A cool chair flanked by pedestal tables.
By the same designer of the console above, Smoked Ramiform is sculpted from a massive piece of teak.
Stunning hanging chandeliers.
Well, I learned the top of these tables are made from the skin of manta rays.
Another sculptural piece from the same designer as the console and chair, again made from teak and stained black. A great conversational centerpiece.
The other evening I was out walking in my neighborhood while on the way to a design event, on nearby Beverly Boulevard. Along the way I stopped to photograph some of the amazing beautiful old buildings in the La Brea and Beverly Boulevard neighborhood of Los Angeles. This particular street is lined with an eclectic mix of quitenessetial old LA style. Here’s a little photographic tour...
Lush landscape covers the facade of a building presumably from the 1940’s era.
A building I assume was built around the 1930’s or 40’s.
The details of this building feels so European.
An early Spanish style building.
Another Spanish style with intricate tile detail.
Another building I believe from the 1940’s.
Another Spanish style.
A grouping of Normandy style buildings.
Streamline Moderne right on the same street!
Happy Holidays and wishing you a Happy New Year 2019!
