The client wanted their all new kitchen to look as if they had kept the original vintage in mint condition but even more amazing. The mirror was a real find; discovered from another home a block away. It was serendipity for our green and black tile!

Deloz Kitchen Banquette
Transformed a charming but antiquated 50's kitchen to a functional open galley that sits well in the mid century home
The globe chandelier is the star of this Malibu dining room. Drapery with a simple top pinch pleat is modern but, adds drama.
Such a pleasure to assist with the kitchen design for this amazing new build in Ojai by Here Design & Architecture. The most spectacular modern home with a southwest flavor, bravo Kate! Photography by Skye Moorhead
Hillcrest Mid Century Kitchen
By removing a peninsula that closed off the original kitchen an open airy kitchen gains an island full of storage and a place to hang out in this mid century Beverly Hills home
Before this was a chopped up dark bowling alley with multiple angled cabinets creating meandering paths to separate work areas...completely inefficient & pretty ugly. The new remodel opened up the space into a beautifully streamlined and functional galley with an island where the whole family can be together.
Hillgreen Mid Century Kitchen
A mid century kitchens gets a makeover; retaining the original layout but a grander island and floating shelves lighten the space previously darken by the previous wall cabinets
A modern yet warm and inviting kitchen. The island is a workhorse; lots of storage, range top, microwave, and seating space too!
Encino Mid Century Kitchen Galley
Large scale hex tile floor and dimensional tile add a bit of whimsy to this mid century gem. A vent hood is tucked up seamlessly over the induction cooktop while lift up wall cabinets make storage easy access next to the sink.
This arched inset for the cooking area is an original feature in a lot of late 20th C homes. Typically, that features goes out with remodel. Glad the client wanted to keep it along the decorative black ceramic register over the original vent. And so fun to work with a client who loves color!
As this is a galley kitchen, we added a pot filler at the cooktop saving steps to the sink.
A sweet little powder room. The pink is toned down with the neutral marble wainscot.
Deloz Kitchen Entry
By moving a door into the kitchen over, it created a new hallway to the stairwell. This diverted the traffic flow out of the kitchen. Yet the partial walls clad in cherry wood to match the cabinets keeps the space open, demarcates the kitchen from the new hallway and provides an attractive point of view.
A stripe of green mosaic adds vertical height, a little pizzazz to subway tile, and a link to the green bath cabinets.
We knew it was "the" backsplash when my musician client discovered Jazz Treble Bourbon Street was the name of the tile. A prep sink in the island makes another workstation for a family that cooks together.
Calabasas Open Kitchen
Removing a blockade of a peninsula and adding an island made a grand kitchen space for everyone to cook together or just congregate. The design was a play on the popular black and white kitchens - softening the concept with natural maple and dark stained cherry woods. The decorative backsplash tiles insert a pop of color and pattern.
Encino Mid Century Kitchen Nook
A radiused buffet; custom made to match the custom kitchen cabinets adds storage to this cheery breakfast nook and a nod to the automotive design in the mid century.
Everybody loves a blue-green bath! Oceanside Glass Tile adds a little sparkle to the splash!
Calabasas Open Kitchen Cooks Corner
Open shelves add contrast and levity to the space while keeping dishes conveniently at hand. The quilt of patterned tiles liven up the range top and are repeated over the wine bar.
A great room gets a bright remodel with a mid-century spin. The client wanted the kitchen open for entertaining and the dining room gets a new bar as well.

Beverly Hills Dining
Counter seating and open peninsula to the dining room make this a great hangout space
A large island with lots of storage variety; wine rack, veggie & bread bins, integrated cutting boards, replaced an outdated peninsula in this classic mid-century kitchen
