Cove Lighting at Yerba Santa Avenue Looking Sharp!

May 2, 2017 by Hiromi Ogawa

Now that drywall is up at our Yerba Santa Aveue Residence, we can see the cove lighting detail along the edge of the ceiling. LED strips will be tucked up into the cove, to give a nice glow to the walls. We can't wait to see it in action!

Featured on Houzz: 8 Color Combinations to Boost Your Bathroom (in French!)

Apr 25, 2017 by Hiromi Ogawa

Our Middlefield Road Residence bathroom was featured in a French Houzz article titled "8 combinaisons de couleurs pour booster votre salle de bains", which rougly translates to "8 Color Combinations to Boost Your Bathroom". It's definitely true that the dark-to-light gradation of tile color helps diffuse the intensity of the dark blue floor. Also, using the same tile on the floor and the walls is a little trick we use to make a small bathroom feel much bigger.

Our clients were a big contributor to the playfulness of this project's overall aesthetic, and we're so pleased to see that other people like it, too!

The Marin Avenue Residence was recently featured in a 7x7 article titled: "Design Envy: A Berkeley Craftsman Gets a New Flow". We love being featured, especially when the title starts with "Design Envy"!

Hammering away

Apr 4, 2017 by Hiromi Ogawa

You know it's a special house when the littlest member of the family is inspired to pick up a hammer and get busy. Sucharitha captured this photo at a recent jobsite meeting at our Yerba Santa Avenue Residence. So cute!

Rough electrical and plumbing are in place, and soon the drywall will go up. More updates soon!
