  • This particular project in Corona del Mar was such a treat because it allowed me to express my creativity and passion for custom cabinetry – one of my signature specialties – and a style that I absolutely love. The homeowners were from England and wanted their home to reflect the classic English charm with modern sensibilities.

    Our plan and material selection was meticulous, including the cabinet paint, which was imported from England. The Calcutta marble was also a special find with its large veins that was honed to match the matte painted cabinets. From custom cove moldings to frosted glass doors to hand-scraped walnut wood floors, the house was a true reflection of my client’s style and lifestyle.

    The master bedroom was transformed into an oasis, with custom cabinetry in the sitting room, entertainment center, closet, and bathroom. We transformed a circular enclave into a cozy nook, the bathroom into a spa retreat, and the closet into in area for dressing, storage, and functionality.
