Part 4 of our Encino Ranch Remodel proved to be a knockout!  After completing  the entry, the powder room, and most recently the living room,  it was time to sink our teeth into the kitchen.  The maple cabinets were blond wood against sage green walls.  This was fine when the home owners were going for a more country look, admit it – there was a time when we all fell into loving “French Provencial.”  Ready to update to something modern and light, we transformed the kitchen into a cook’s paradise.  read more

After remodeling the living and dining rooms, we couldn’t wait to dig into this kitchen, sink and all!  It was time to modernize not only the aesthetic, but its appliances and functionality.  In keeping with the rest of the home’s facelift, a sleek ebony and ivory palate was just what the juje doctor ordered!  I told my contractor, make everything blanc and call me in the morning.  read more

BEFORE | BLOND WOOD KITCHEN AND FLOORS

This kitchen hadn’t been touched in 30 years when our client’s moved into this home and they  were ready for a sleek and modern update.  The existing granite countertops were quite exquisite and are flecked with silver and gold.  The logical and economical choice was to update the blond wood cabinetry by staining them grey and refinish the floors in a warm espresso color.  The results were amazing and it looks like a brand new space!  read more

 “Space and light and order.  Those are the things that men need just as much as they need bread or a place to sleep.” – Le Corbusier

A 1930's Duplex in West Hollywood Makeover Kitchen | D.L. RheinWhen I was asked to remodel a client’s rental property, I jumped at the chance. This wasn’t just any apartment, but a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 2500 square foot apartment!  They were looking to update, in order to rent it for a price, worthy of a prime location in a historic Los Angeles neighborhood.  I was given a tight budget and full creative say (woopie!) and am proud to say that I was able to accomplish my vision while keeping the expenses down.
