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!

Final shot at our Inverness Way Resdience photo shoot

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!⠀

Second floor framing is taking place at our Gilbert Avenue Residence, and it's giving us a preview of the trees and sky we'll be seeing through the bedroom windows. 

Featured on Houzz: 12 Ideas from Stunning Fall Gardens

Sep 14, 2017 by Hiromi Ogawa

Our Waverley Street Residence was just featured in a Houzz article titled "12 Ideas from Stunning Fall Gardens". It's true that the persimmon tree bears brilliant orange fruit, and extends the enjoyment of this courtyard well into the fall season. And it also helps to have architectural elements, such as the exposed carport rafters, echo and enhance the warm tones of fall. 

Edges, softened.

The natural T&G ceiling in the master bedroom is looking lovely. Once the painter's tape is removed, these window will help frame the view of the mature grapefruit tree outside.

The new living room corner window is bringing in a lot of sunlight. It's amazing how a simple change can transform a whole room.
