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.



Chinese New Year, Good Bye Rabbit, Hello Dragon!

Chinese New Year is coming up and it got me reminiscing about last year. Some girlfriends and I threw a super fun Chinese New Year Party. We are in a charity organization where we raise money by putting together parties and auctioning off slots for attending the party.  The hostesses cover the cost of their party and the money people pay for their slot goes to charity.  This party was to benefit The Pasadena Ronald McDonald House. My friend and client opened up her fabulous 1920’s English Tudor home for the night.


My photographer friend and fellow hostess, Stephanie Wiley, took these amazing photos.

We did a large buffet in the dining room.  Another friend  played beautiful classical music in the adjacent living room on the baby grand piano.  We hung decorations here and there and it was magical.




Everything was beautiful and fun was had by all :)  Here’s to the year of the Dragon being fortuitous!
