"I HAVE THE BEST JOB IN THE WORLD.  AFTER MANY YEARS BUILDING MY REPUTATION AS A PROFESSIONAL DESIGNER…

I find it's important to show the serious side of design and inspire others to create engaging homes.  But another important lesson learned is to enjoy the moment and find time to have a good laugh.  It is my team of talented, hardworking people that manage to keep me—and each other—laughing."

David’s life is all about style, fashion and beauty. He owns an agency that represents fashion designers, hair and make-up artists and other talent. But when he’s not busy jetting around the world to dress the rich and famous, he can be found at home planning his next big dinner party.

 

He recently purchased a turn-of-the-century farmhouse in the heart of the city, and renovated most of the main floor with his terrific sense of style. But all the rooms led to the busiest and most dysfunctional room in the home - a dated, 80’s-style kitchen that had broken cabinets, old appliances and a bathroom that opened up to the cooking area. Not very stylish!

 

Now saying that David LOVES to cook and entertain is an understatement, and he longed for a beautiful and functional kitchen where he could flaunt his stuff! He also needed the space to serve as a home office and casual meeting area. The problem was that he didn’t know how to make it all happen. In a world of ‘dress to impress,’ this space made a tragic first impression, so I called in my own stylish crew and geared up to give him a fabulous kitchen to match his fabulous lifestyle.

We started by making the layout of the space much more functional and appealing by reconfiguring the entrance to the bathroom so that it was accessible from the hallway. After that, anything installed before Ronald Regan was in office was removed so that we could start fresh, first with the installation of a heated travertine floor and new French doors leading to David’s gorgeous patio.

 

 

 

DAVID'S KITCHEN

 

 

David’s office is it the first thing you see when entering the kitchen and it needed to have “wow” factor. Flocked, foil-backed, medallion print wallpaper was the solution, adding a fashion forward element to a traditional motif. It’s the finishing touch on a chic kitchen space where David now cooks, eats, works and entertains in style!
