ASID Pasadena Home Tour 2013

Sunday October 6, 9:30am-5pm

Self guided tour of 4 homes in Pasadena, Aracadia, & La Cañada.

I began this design project in 2012. The scope of the project included the master bedroom, library, dining room, three children’s rooms, and other elements added to the living, game and family rooms. I custom designed most of the furnishings for the home. The project is featured along with the other homes ont he tour in this months Pasadena Magazine. 

In honor of its 40th anniversary of service to the homeless of the San Gabriel Valley, and to help men, women, and children rebuild their lives and end homelessness, a portion of ticket proceeds will be donated to Union Station Homeless Service of Pasadena.



In the Pink

Every year Pantone chooses a Color of the Year…

Color of the year - pink (12)

I’ve always loved pink, and as we say at our house “we love all the colors of the rainbow”.  I think pink is going to be an auspicious color for 2011.  First of all it’s happy!  It’s also fresh, vibrant, witty, and a little outside the box.

I Love Pink in Nature

A Pink Project I did for an “outside the box” family.  I call it my Rockin’ Ranch.







And doesn’t every little girl (and big girls too!) want some pink in their bedroom.

So….What do you PINK about it?



Abstract Paintings and Interior Design

I love the look of large format abstract paintings and how all the colors can really pull a room together and create different moods, from bright and energizing…

and many other moods too!  I love all types and styles of art, but one of my favorite aspects of abstract art is that you can get lost in what ever you want to see at that moment.  It’s like listening to music with out words.
