As Seen on HGTV

Featured on HGTV’s House Hunters Renovation, my San Fernando Valley Collection was used as wallpaper, decals and fabric for this kitchen makeover.

Custom designed for my clients, I was inspired by the mid century modern home they had recently purchased.  Not far from our very first home in Reseda, California, this mid-mo ranch style is the perfect starter home.





































The clients wanted an open concept kitchen on a very tight budget.  By using Ikea cabinetry and counter tops, my client’s appliances and a bit of ingenuity, I was able to transform a dreary dark kitchen into a room they never want to leave.



















Working with my client’s original dark wood floors, I continued that drama onto the cabinets and counter tops balancing it with hearty shocks of bold citrus color and pattern.  I wrapped their black refrigerator with my wallpaper – Lemon Jello as well as the dishwasher to add a splash of pattern.  Using decals from my San Fernando Collection, I added interest to the back-painted glass wall hung pattern.

Juicy Lime Squeeze

My newest cotton/linen fabric in upholstery form.  It’s called Juicy – Lime Squeeze

A big bold print that is reminiscent of citrus.  With a colorway slightly tinged with citron and lime it is the perfect accompaniment to a Palm Springs bar.  It covers three vintage bar height tub chairs and a couple toss pillows.

High Desert Collection

Designed for a client that has houses in the High Desert (Pioneertown) and the Low Desert (Palm Springs), I designed the Los Alamos collection that married these two locales.










The lusty bright blooms of desert’s flowers coupled with the dusty beiges of the sand dunes formed the inspiration for this collection.

Desert rose is a mid century abstraction of this rare bloom.

Mesquite is a witty send up of a pile of the namesake tree branches ready for the fire.

The smoke from this aromatic tree is the signature scent of the desert.










The fabric is used to  upholster a storage ottoman.  As well as a kidney pillow.


Sunset is the final pattern of this collection.  A pulsating sun over the baked landscape of violet, beige and smokey lavender.












The collection of patterns coordinate well together.
