I am a designer & artist born and raised in Southern California. I have had the good fortune to live not only here but also in Manhattan for 10 years. I enjoy decorating my homes & the homes of others by mixing the old with the new in a way that is modern, comfortable and functional. My love of music, art, fashion, architecture & nature is represented in the things I collect & design. I am passionate about using colors to set the mood in a room or an entire home. I truly believe that colors affect the way you feel in a space. Five things I can't live without: 1) Being near a beach. I love everything about the beach & the beaches near my home are gorgeous. 2) Exercise - I like where I live because I have many options for exercise: biking, walking, hiking, surfing, paddle boarding, yoga & dancing. 3) Great Food- My home is located in an area where we are surrounded by great restaurants and gourmet & Health Food grocery stores. California is the best place to find great Mexican food! 4) Music - I absolutely Love Music & enjoy being near many live music venues. 5) Art & Fashion - I not only love to create, I am inspired by beautiful things. Locally, the galleries & Museum in Laguna Beach are wonderful. If that isn't enough, some of the best museums and galleries in Los Angeles are only an hour away. In addition, we are located just five minutes away from two shopping centers: South Coast Plaza, an upscale luxury shopping mall & Fashion Island.
I truly believe you will enjoy staying in our home because it is beautiful, comfortable and located in a fabulous area. You will enjoy having us as your hosts because we are happy to share what we know about the best of California- the best beaches, best activities or must see attractions, best food, best music venues & best places to see art and California architecture.
