Lynn and I attended the AIACC Monterey Design Conference last weekend. We came back reinvigorated and inspired!

Designing around artwork

Oct 4, 2017 by Hiromi Ogawa

Very early in the design process, our clients at the Inverness Way Residence asked us to make sure there was an appropriate wall for this large painting. It's over 6' x 6' - big! - with textures and colors that are quite beautiful. I think the ridge skylight, as well as the dimmable wall sconces, really help make the painting a focal point of their open living space. I'm super happy it all came together!

I snuck a photo of Cesar's laptop during our last dusk shot of the Inverness Way Residence last week. It was a brief, magical moment when the house and sky both had a warm glow. Thanks again Cesar for a successful shoot!⠀

Oct 2, 2017 by Hiromi Ogawa

Our 12th Street Residence is featured in a new Houzz articled called "Elderly-Friendly Spaces for Loved Ones who Live on Their Own". Recently, we've definitely seen an increase in clients who come to us wanting aging-in-place features, long-term planning, and multi-generation homes. The key is to make universal access features a design element that is enjoyed and used by everyone in the home. We love working with our clients to ensure comfort and ease in their environment for years to come!
