We popped into Farm Shop at the Brentwood Country Mart yesterday and I was so happy to be in the space because it was just so me. From the incredible selection of artisinal foods at the market, to the branding, to the casual vibe of the dining room – nothing was off or missing a beat. Subway tile, rad macrame lighting, a bucolic mural. A well designed space worth noting and visiting. What better way to take ad hoc photos than through Instagram.

Remember when I mentioned I was working on a restaurant in Palo Alto last year? I finally made it up to see the finished space and I was so happy with how it all came together. And how amazing the food was. If you are in the area, please do stop in and check it out. Here are some teaser shots of the space, but you will have to try the food for yourself.
This model home in Echo Park, LA has been covered by Apartment Therapy and The Brick House, but I just had to do a post too. I love the clean, open, modern structure decked out with more earthy and tactile materials. Its the perfect combination of modernity and vintage/up-cycled, feeling fresh and clean. The homes built are environmentally conscientious to boot. A quality project all around.
I’ve been getting feedback that people want to see what I have been working on. Most of the projects from this past summer will turn up on my portfolio page when it is updated, but today I made some progress on two projects that I will share pictures of the finished spaces with you when they are done in a few weeks or months. I haven’t heard back from the clients yet so these may both end up changing drastically. I thought it would be fun to follow the evolution. First is a sailing themed nursery for an 18 month old boy. He already has the blue crib and his parents enjoy sailing so I thought it would be fun to incorporate the nautical motif for their additional purchases. The pine storage bins can be painted a midnight blue so that the room will have a crisp white with blue, black, and red stripes against a stormy grey. The vintage sailing signal flags and the nautical map are too cool, no? And hopefully the room can grow up with him.The second space is a new fast casual falafel bar in downtown San Diego. The concept is fresh, gourmet Mediterranean food with a green slant. The owners are trying to secure a space so I’m not going to work out the space plan until they do. In the meantime we are trying to refine the look of the space working with the paprika color as the main branding color. Its supposed to feel industrial, loungy, and earthy at the same time according to them, but I threw in a little retro too. I’m sure this scheme will go through many more reiterations before its done.
Any input is welcome. Thanks.
