Moonshadows Restaurant Remodel

I am proud to announce my newest project... the iconic Malibu restaurant and lounge, MoonshadowsI have been working on the plans for the past two months and we are ready to start the first phase of construction in January.

The owners have done such great job with the food that its time for the interiors to match the culinary aspect of the restaurant.
Moonshadows is a Pacific Coast Highway landmark and I am excited to begin what will be such a challenging and rewarding project. I have great plans in store and look forward to sharing progress updates with you all.

Fall Harvest at Wertz Brothers

Fall is officially here so its time once again to pull out all the decorations and start getting in the spirit of Halloween.  I love this time of the year even though it seems like the time is going by much quicker now and I seriously feel like I just put the Halloween decorations away not too long ago.
My One Kings Lane sale was a huge success so my booth at Wertz Brothers is looking a little sparse so its perfect timing to decorate for Halloween until I can go to the next antique show to buy more fabulous stuff!!!

One of the latest additions to my collection are the Burmese wood statues that I found at an antique show I went to in Atlanta a couple of months ago.  They really are incredible and I'm not sure that I want to part with them.
I still love all the Victorian bamboo furniture, I actually bought the two door cabinet about 20 years ago, it has an embossed leather top and is in really great condition. 
I found the vintage pales at the "Three Speckled Hens" antique show which is held in the central coast of California, they look really great at night with candles in them to lead all the trick or treaters right to your door.

The sofa and large ottoman just sold so I just went to a flea market this past weekend and found an amazing harvest table to take its place which I will show you in my next blog.

Thank you for all your support with my One Kings Lane sale it was a big success and a great experience so I am looking forward to the next one in March!
Have a great day and Happy Halloween

Timothy Whealon's Southampton Cottage

Hi Everyone I hope you all had a great summer.  Its' been so long since I posted on my blog I almost forgot how to do it!!!  I had such a busy summer working and traveling that I got really lazy with my blog.  Thank you so much for hanging in there!
I had a lot of exciting things going on this summer the most important of them all is that my son JD got his drivers license just as school let out and his father bought him a new car... At first it was frightening but he's a safe driver so I was able to relax after a couple months.
One of my many trips this summer was to visit my best friend in New York and we were invited to stay at a house in Southampton that belongs to Timothy Whealon who just happens to be one of the most talented Interior Designers on the east coast.
You can just tell by the photo that this house belongs in The Hamptons

He did such an amazing job remodeling and decorating this house. My girlfriend and I were so happy to be staying there, the weather was perfect and we had the best time.


The backyard is absolutely stunning, the landscape, hardscape, the pool, everything is just perfect about this house.
We stayed in the guest house which was done really well and there was even had an outdoor shower!
 Simple but extremely comfortable and I love the ceiling. Now on to the main house!!!

Here's a shot of the dining room from the living room and yes the walls are pale pink which works well with the dark floor and the white furniture.
Here's my bestie Diane taking a break from all our shopping and eating adventures. There's more amazing photos on Timothy Whealon's website if you want to check it out.

More exciting news, finally my sale on One Kings Lane will be online starting next Tuesday evening 6pm PT so make sure you check it out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I promise not to stay gone for too long I have a lot more exciting adventures to share with all of you.  xoxo

Hercules Drive Remodel Complete (well sort of)...

Me installation day, my photographer/friend Marco Franchina is a famous fashion photographer so while we were waiting for all the furniture to be delivered he took a couple photos of me. Why not?

At the beginning of the year I started on a new remodel project in The Hollywood Hills it took a couple of months to do the drawings,  get the permits, work out the design, get bids and convince my client that he absolutely had to move out of the house during the remodel!!! The house was built in 1975 and desperately needed to be updated. In mid March my client moved out and we started construction. My client only agreed to move out for two months so I had to get my crew started right away.  The original plan was to remodel the family room, dining room, living room and master bedroom for Phase I and then do the rest of the house later in the year. My client and I both agreed that since he was moving out that we should remodel the whole house at all at once instead of breaking it up into phases.  We replaced all the windows and doors from Fleetwood, removed all of the existing floors and replaced them with reclaimed wood floors from Living Green, demoed all the bathrooms and kitchen, replaced all the fixtures, tile marble, limestone, new closets, replaced all the electrical, etc.  So basically we started from scratch.  As  you will see in this blog the master bath needed updating  more than any room in the house!

The Master Bath happens to have the best view in the house, the Hollywood sign and downtown Los Angeles. So I convinced my client that we definitely had to remodel the master bath for obvious reasons but also it was in the back of the house and it would not be a good idea to remodel the whole house, install wood floors, paint, etc without redoing the master bath. He finally saw the light and agreed!

The focal point of the room was by far the bathtub so we decided that the room needed the Waterworks Candide freestanding oval bathtub. The tub is so beautiful  it comes primed so you can choose your own paint color, naturally the tub filler is also from Waterworks the Easton series.

The sink vanities were custom built to our specifications and the wood we used is rough cut white oak and the marble is one of my new favorites Calacutta Borghini with vessel sinks from Ronbow faucets are from Kallista Tuxedo by Barbara Barry.
 I really didn't want to style the shots because all the materials I used speak for themselves and work so well together. Why complicate things!

Here's a shot of the shower pan. I stayed at one of the many boutique hotels in Los Angeles the SLS Hotel and all their showers have invisible drains! It was not an easy task to duplicate but my fabricator Gene with All Marble recreated it and even better than the SLS Hotel.  Check it out!

The whole house was completed last week and my client moved in on Monday.  So instead of taking two months it took three, not bad.  My client is happy and everything turned out beyond our expectations and that's whats important.
More to come from Hercules Drive so stay tuned.......

One Kings Lane

I'm so excited to share with you that I was selected by One Kings Lane to host a "Tastemaker Tag Sale" in September!!!  For those of you that are not familiar with One Kings Lane founders Susan Feldman and Alison Gelb Pincus are home design enthusiasts and they discovered that there was no online venue for top-quality, high end home goods at affordable prices so they created One Kings Lane.  New sales launch daily at 8am and the Tastemaker Tag Sales start Saturdays and Tuesdays. One Kings Lane partners with top brands and interior designers to give their 1.5 MILLION members insider access to designer decor, entertaining, travel, food and wine, etc.
I will be featuring my incredible collection of antique and vintage furniture and accessories as well as my one of a kind vintage rugs.

My good friend Katharine Marinaro of gogovoyage was gracious enough to introduce me to One Kings Lane so as a thank you to her I am going to host a give away on my blog one of her fabulous travel accessories!

Sunset Restaurant Featured on Party Resources Blog

Beachside in Malibu

JANETTE MALLORY INTERIORS recently sent me images of remodel she did at SUNSET RESTAURANT in Malibu, CA. As I love Janette's style and her blog, I couldn't wait to see the photos.

The Sunset is open for brunch and dinner and has a large number of regular (and often celebrity) clientele. After paying a visit to this divine seaside locale, you’re bound to become a regular, too.

The venue is a great example of Janette's work which results in beautiful, contemporary interiors.

She also sent me images of the weddings on the beach that the Sunset has planned - now I was swooning!

805 Living Magazine – In Good Taste Article

I want to share with you an article from 805 Living Magazines March 2011 issue , an interview featuring myself and another interior designer Ann James!!!  Mallory McCreary from 805 interviewed both of us about good taste, you either have or you don’t (in my opinion). I know its from last month but I have been so busy working on my project in The Hollywood Hills that this is the first chance I have had to sit down and blog.

Mallory chose the photo below to include in the article and its from a restaurant I remodeled a couple of years ago, The Sunset Restaurant in Malibu.  It’s one of my favorite photographs in my portfolio. 

805 Living is a  fantastic local magazine in my area.  Check it out, if you can still find this issue on the newsstands!!

Wertz Brothers Antique Mart

Some of you may know that I have been renting a retail space at the Agoura Antique Mart for the past two years as well as a display case for my Majolica Collection at The Summerland Antique Collective in Santa Barbara.  Before I moved to the Agoura Antique Mart two years ago I put my name on a waiting list at Wertz Brothers Antique Mart in Santa Monica for one of their coveted spaces and finally after a long wait I got a call from them saying that they finally had a prime space for me to rent! So without hesitation I moved all my Majolica and Vintage furniture and accessories to Wertz Brothers Antique Mart.   The display case and my new space are much larger than what I had before (which is a good thing I hope). The down side it that its not as close to me as Agoura was but the demographic is much better for the product that I sell and who can complain about going to Santa Monica once a week.


I love all the Majolica mixed with all the natural white and blue coral!



I like having a corner space because I think you get better use of the space and its more open. I’m a little low on inventory right now but not for long. I’m heading to High Point, North Carolina next week and then Brimfield, Massachusetts  in May!


If you are in the area and are looking for antiques and vintage one of a kind pieces I would highly recommend that you stop in at Wertz Brothers Antique Mart on Lincoln Blvd. near the 10 fwy. the showroom is 20,000 sq. ft . so you are sure to find some little special thing (or two) to add to your collection.




Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog.

New York Glam in Encino California


I have been MIA working on all my projects, photographing two of my projects for a local magazine editorial and moving my retail space from Agoura to Santa Monica which was quite a task!!!  In the middle of all that chaos I got pneumonia which slowed me down a bit. I’m on the road to recovery and I am so excited to share with you this project that I just completed and had photographed.

How I met these clients is a funny story, I had a retail store a couple of years ago and she came in because she wanted to buy some mirrors for her bedroom and we ended up completely redoing her Family Room, Dining Room, Veranda and her entire Outdoor Furniture.  We are about to gut the Powder Room.  The clincher is we never got around to picking those two mirrors that she wanted for her bedroom!

The house is Mediterranean/Traditional style and needed to be updated and a little  more Glamorous to fit my client’s personality. They are a young hip couple, she owns three fabulous clothing stores here in Southern California and he is a real estate mogul.  With all of that they were a great couple to work with and open to all of my ideas!!!

We wanted the dining room to be modern but still keeping in the Mediterranean/Traditional style with a  Glamorized twist.  


We started with the pair of Louis Philippe mirrors from Big Daddy’s and this fabulous mica wallpaper from Romo that we fell in love with.  I designed the two buffets and had them custom made with a specialty finish on both. She entertains a lot so she wanted a large dining table to seat up to sixteen people. The host and hostess chairs are from Gregorius Pineo (on casters) and are a dream to sit in.  The chandelier and sconces are from Nancy Corzine and are absolutely stunning. The area rug was custom from Patterson, Flynn and Martin, took four months to get but was well worth the wait.  


This is the most Glamorous dining room I have ever done and my clients are over the top happy with the way it turned out. My photographer Jim McHugh did an amazing job capturing the feeling of the room.



Here are the before pictures so you can get a sense of the transformation and what I had to work with!!
