Fresh Fabric Ideas

July 29th, 2014

I am working on interiors for a model home and love these fresh fabric ideas. They are classic and sophisticated and will pair well with any color.

Last month I visited Newport Beach and toured the Philharmonic House of Design. It was “serenity by the sea” in my opinion. All furniture fabrics and accessories were inspired by the ocean and beaches around. The architecture was low lying to preserve views, thus allowing neighboring homes to have sight lines to the ocean. The garage was in the lower level accessed only by a private side driveway descending to the lower level basement. The walls and flooring were all beautiful backgrounds.

I thought this was a great idea for a television.

I designed this charming carriage house for my client who is a car and sports enthusiast. The carriage house sits nestled into the mountain side across from the main house.

Canyon Road

I designed this home years ago and just received these beautiful pictures from the contractor. This home was placed on a lot that had been in the family for generations. There were many family memories on the building site so we preserved the pool from the original home. This custom home was designed as a spot for entertaining dignitaries and hosting university events.

Thanks to JayDee Barr Construction for sharing these pictures with us.
