So many cool things happening in this sophisticated entry: The custom art piece was made for the homeowner from his first beloved bicycle. A plaid rug and forest green sofa (with built-in planter!) bring in more intriguing pattern and color.
One of my favorite people and repeat clients came to me with a brimming-with-potential-blank-slate of a room that she wanted to use as her creative workspace. We wanted a feature wall inspired by graffiti. After some brainstorming, my client decided that the focal points of the mural would be a singular fist and kente cloth, signifying power, empowerment, and culture.

We worked with the extremely talented CHARMAINE MINNIEFIELD. If you’ve popped over to her website already, you know that she “draws from indigenous traditions as seen throughout Africa and the Diaspora by exploring African and African-American ritual from a feminist perspective.” She was the perfect fit for this project. As you can see, the results are stunning.
Dark, elegant details like the green velvet sofa and black leather dining chairs give this Spanish-style room a beautifully sophisticated look. The dark shades are brightened with luxurious golden pops of brass.
The main living area of this beach house has an open concept layout, so residents are treated to ocean views from anywhere in the room. The exposed beams are made from antique reclaimed wood; the floors are rough hewn European oak.
Blue and green accents are a colorful extension of the living area's natural palette. The colors are used in other rooms as well and pair so prettily with the shiplap paneling and white oak beams. High ceilings help the space feel huge.
