I had the pleasure of working with the talented ladies of the wedding collective Good Company for the past few months. We did a complete remodel of what was formerly a children’s clothing store and turned it into a bright, lovely workspace. The studio is home to some of the wedding industries best including Lisa Lefkowitz Photography, Hello Lucky stationary, Downey Street Events, Sharla Flock Designs & Meagnne McCandess. Below are some before and after’s, and if you want to see more of the space or learn more about Good Company click *here*.
ATD recently completed the renovation of a modern kitchen here in Menlo Park. Our clients are over the moon and so are we! I love it when you finish a project and realize that you have made new friends in the process. G + D were a pleasure to work with and we hope they are enjoying their new kitchen!
I am so excited to be featured in the San Francisco Chronicle “Stylemaker’s Spotlight”. It is such an honor to be included in a series that has also featured so many designers that I admire. When I took the leap of faith to start my own business I never dreamed of being recognized by any publication for my work. I just thought I was pretty lucky to love my job. ATD is only a year and half old and I am so proud of this little business. If you want to swing by and check out the article, it is on the SFGate blog *here*.
I spent this past Saturday afternoon shopping with my brother-in-law. He just rented a great, light-filled studio apartment in the Marina neighborhood of San Francisco. We were on a budget, but we still wanted good looking stylish pieces. Sooo, I drew up a quick furniture plan for size reference and over to Ikea and West Elm we went. He already has a bed with blue duvet and orange/red/beige kilim area rug. Here is what we added to the mix…
My client G and her husband have a super cool, rustic modern home. We are looking for something spectacular for the dining room as it has very tall ceilings. I think this beauty would be ideal…
Ochre’s Arctic Pear chandelier is perfection. Sparkly without being fussy. Clean-lined bronze metalwork that gives it visual weight. Elegance from the tiny, delicate wires from which it is suspended. I’ve fallen hard. Isn’t it great!?

Yesterday ATD was featured on Casasugar and I’m over the moon about it. Stop by and check it out *here*. A very big thank you to Casasugar editor Angela Swinderman Elias for writing the story and making it happen! I would also like to thank so many of you for the kind comments and words of encouragement that poured in over Facebook and Twitter. You all know how to make a girl feel special!
I’m working on furniture plans for a very large master bedroom at the moment. I’ve come across some great ideas on replacing the standard bench or pair of stools for the foot of the bed. As you can see in some of the images below, placing a small sofa or settee at the foot creates a cozy little sitting or lounge area. It’s a great, stylish way to break up the room and is also very functional.
