Interior Design Los Altos

This is a 1927 historic property in the arts district located in central Phoenix. Many European architectural elements surround this elegant piece of property. In remaking this older home, many challenges were faced. Much of the exposed wood beams, period lighting, iron detail, and valve flush bath fixtures remain.

In the formal living room overlooking the lion head water fountain is a separate seating area to enjoy the serenity of this spacious room. An antique carved China topped with greenery balances the massive wood and beam structures that lead you in and out of this ambient room. The client's art is the cornerstone to the creation of what is now termed "Old World Deco" design. The formal dining room needed brightening because of the sun's positioning. Silks, brocades and damasks were used to compliment the warm tones. The dramatic hues of the sponged on finish, pulling all the shades of colors together.

The guest bedroom and bath were our next project on the second story. I have added a 26" poured laminate ceiling to create what I call "The Wedding Cake Room." This a very cozy intimate space using colors of 'Provence'. The bath became the real challenge. A small space with the radiator and oak cabinets. The ceiling had been covered with the light soffit box trimmed in oak with the yellowed plastic cover. The rose star was my inspiration for this airy bathroom and gained much space by placing a pedestal sink where oak cabinetry had taken over.
