For the last couple months I have been working behind the scenes for a creative dynamo of a client (actually clients). Anne Sage
and Team Woodnote
have teamed up in a joint venture called “Light Lab
” which is a creative warehouse/studio space in Atwater Village that will be available for photo shoots, workshops, events, etc. and they turned to me for the design of the kitchen and bathroom. It has been such a fun project to work on because kitchens and baths are my favorite to design and they pretty much let me do whatever the heck I wanted. Which included incorporating some unexpected materials, and also featuring one of my own wallpaper designs!
Above is the kitchen rendering and cabinet plan I shared with them for the design proposal. We are going with black slab cabinets, black appliances, and doing a tile feature on the island (yum). Since it is a warehouse space, everything is in one giant room so I wanted the kitchen to be clean and modern (blending in with the space) but still have special moments like the tile, the extra long floating shelves, and brass stools and a plywood feature wall (more on that soon) that make it unique.
Directly above you are looking at the before photo of where the kitchen will go. We had all sorts of plumbing and electrical work that needed to get done, delaying things ,which seems to be the usual with renovations, but install day should be any day now and I am over here waiting like a kid for Christmas.
Meanwhile… the bathroom is a tad bit further along…
and again, here is the design board, rounding up all the selects. I love love a bold bathroom, so we went for it… gold accents, wallpaper, and the black and white triangle floor tile all make this heart go pitter patter. Especially the wallpaper because… I have been developing my own wallpaper collection and this is the first time seeing one my new designs up and in a space! It isn’t available anywhere yet, but I was able to do a custom print for them.
