Pottery Barn X Issa Rae


From the very beginning of the project, we knew we wanted to create a serene spot to inspire relaxation for this super busy multi-hyphenate, while also reflecting Issa’s essence and style. We worked closely with her to develop a design scheme that balanced the natural tones and textures of So-Cal with pops of bold colors and unique patterns.

Bold Eclectic

Los Feliz, Ca

We turned this 1920s Spanish Colonial Revival home in Los Angeles into a modern oasis. Our goal was to respect the original character of the home while infusing it with our signature bold and glam-infused aesthetic. One of the main challenges was creating a seamless flow between the indoor and outdoor spaces.

Casa Chroma

West Hollywood, CA

This Spanish bungalow gets a colorful facelift in Los Angeles! We worked closely with the homeowners to transform their home into a modern and luxurious retreat. One of the main goals of this project was to maximize functionality of the kitchen while keeping its original footprint.
