House Beautiful July/ August 2018


a project of ours in montecito is on the cover of the new house beautiful. it’s always a joy to see project come to life and take on a whole story of it’s own.

this is a story of helping a long term client update her vacation home. keeping what she loves, moving things around, then layering on lots of antiques, beautiful fabrics (mostly blue and green), miles of trims, textures galore and an eclectic mix of this and that. 

the best part of this story is that you don’t have to completely start over when updating your home, all you just need to do is just hit refresh. 

thank you house beautiful, thank you to my team, my clients, and special thanks to my constant creative partner amy neunsinger for these beautiful photographs.
