Interior Design Projects

It's been a while since we did a Designer Showcase , so here are some photos of full projects we did in Mission Hills and La Jolla . We are happy to help you on small projects when you need some consulting with colors to repaint , re-upholster some furniture or accent decor a room !

Custom furniture in this dinning room were a must as all the tables were too big and  bulky  or too small . This one can extend on each sides to fit large Holiday dinners . Custom finishes with wax coating give a slight natural shine like antique painted furniture have . DSC_4652 (Large).JPG

New Laguiole knives delivery...

These are the nicest Laguiole knives we ever had. All special ordered and made just for us, one at a time by the best craftsmen. Amazing details and finishes.

The big ones are hunting knives but can be use as steak knives for meat lovers. On the one on top all the detail is in the wood grain and the amazing dark damask blade. Bottom one is more traditional with light cow horn and polished stainless steel.
