Warm design for a contemporary beach house.

 

Moon Stone Beach in Cambria, CA. We redesigned one of five homes nestled in the sand of this wonderful, quaint beach community. Taking inspiration from the colors seen at dusk off of the Pacific Ocean, the home emulates colors seen in the sea and sky as the Sun begins to set in the west. We custom designed and manufactured the coordinating staircase railing and console table. The metalwork also takes a cue from Mother Nature: the pompous grass blowing in the wind.

A touch of sophistication to a casual, classic eatery.

 

Lucky's Roadside in Seaside, CA. Our goal was to create a sophisticated and social atmosphere where local and visiting guests felt at home. We combined rustic finishes such as concrete walls with matte finishes and contemporary crystal light fixtures, setting the stage for guests to have a fun yet down-to-earth dining experience at Lucky's Roadhouse.

A modern update to a Yosemite Valley family home

 

Wawona in Yosemite Valley, CA. This historical home was built in 1947 which we passioinalely had the opportunity to redesign based on the breathtaking land alone. Wawona is uniquely and exclusives nestled amongst California's indigenous Redwood Trees and boasts private views of the Merced River complete with majestic boulders. We chose to showcase the original lumber and textiles used: California Pine walls with knots and eyes and Douglas White Fir original hardwood floors. We made them the focal points and purposely selected a natural color palette found in Yosemite.

Central Coast beach retreat

 

Ocean Cliff in Capitola, CA. Capitola is an affluent, small beach town nestled on California's Central Coast near Santa Cruz. This single family condominium is located high upon a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. With one central wall of windows and sliding doors combined with the open floor plan, we created a space rich in calming colors inviting the peaceful Pacific Ocean to enter in all of its glory. We took inspiration from the white washed beach front properties often seen on the East Coast to keep the space light and airy. Small and intimate nooks around the living and eating spaces were curated in order for family members to have a bit of recluse and enjoy the best of Capitola.

Preeminent shopping destination in Carmel-by-the-Sea.

 

Cashmere and Co. in Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA. This is one of our more recent retail locations where our mission is to always create an inviting space to attract clients while simultaneously showcasing the product. Built-ins polished off the space and also provided ample room for product display and storage. Strategically positioned spot lighting helped to amplify the luxurious product, further attracting customers to this high-end boutique.
