Alas, we come to the denouemont of our Woodland Hills ranch remodel.  What fun we had playing with bold colors throughout this home!  From the funky living room, to the bar and dining room that share this vast space, we strove to make one cohesive space, while still giving each area its own feel and purpose.  We couldn’t wait to get our hands on these books.  The Mr. of the house has, without question, the best collection of leather wrapped vintage books we’ve ever seen.  They weren’t being used at their full potential, stacked amongst paper backs in the wooden shelves.  The sunken den below was yearning to be transformed into something as comfortable as it was glam.  read more

I’M READY FOR MY CLOSE UP MR. DE MILLE

This handsome guy rules the roost and followed us around every where we went throughout this remodel.  Although he is a perfect gentleman, now he can relax in the game loft while the family is dining.  read more

After transforming the entry and game loft above, it was time to dig in to the living room in our Woodland Hills complete home remodel.  Tired of old furniture and muted colors, this family was ready for a colorful change.  A home constantly filled with guests and music, we wanted to give them a space to laugh, dance and relax.  Move over mauve, there’s a new shade of pink in town.  read more

“I find I clash sometimes with people who like to plan things and book you in for lunch.  I’d rather someone call me up and say ‘Are you free tonight and do you wanna go to the roller-disco?  Or play pool?’ ” – Rosamund Pike

GAME LOFT | BEFORE

After remodeling the foyer of this Woodland Hills home, we couldn’t wait to get upstairs to the loft overlooking the ‘great room’ of the house where this family entertains on a regular basis.  Throughout this remodel, we aimed to keep the mid century vibe of this 1960’s abode, but with a modern twist.  The pool table had become an afterthought, and like most homeowners, the unused room became a dumping ground. The Mr. and Mrs. love hosting game nights and watching football with their friends, so we wanted to make a room that would wow both the ladies and gents.   The results were tremendous.  Let the games begin!  read more

Welcome to one of my favorite home remodels…ever!  We were thrilled when we came to scope out this 1960’s, very Brady Bunch-esque abode hidden behind the trees of Woodland Hills.  A family who loves to entertain and host guests on a regular basis, they were ready to make dramatic changes to update their home and prepare for a huge event.  The entry is the first thing you and your company see when they enter your home so it should be as chic as it is inviting.  First on the list was to change the wall color from peach to soothing white.  Time to let the light shine on in…  read more
