Install Day: Long Beach

I have said it once and I’ll say it again, there is nothing better then an install day!  But first the horse, then the cart.

My clients purchased their home over thirty years ago and, needless to say, it was ready for a major update!   They wanted a comfortable and cozy interior that they could enjoy with their friends.  We used the following photos as inspiration, a jumping off point.


Living in California, it is always fun to play with a nice, rich palate, but the design challenge is making it feel airy and fresh. We wanted to combine a rustic nature with clean lines and sharp furnishings.  And we complimented it with textural fabrics that add depth and coziness.


And now, I give your the cart, er, the finished home!









We are thrilled with the way it all came together!

Jenna and I are headed to LA today for a sourcing trip.  Join our adventure on Instagram- amymeierdesign

    Fantastic job! Your design looks very current without being too trendy…if that makes any sense. I saw that you used brass lighting/hardware in the kitchen, along with a chrome faucet. What’s your rule of thumb for these types of things? I’m constantly trying to match doorknob/faucet/cabinet hardware/lighting/etc. but that seems really constraining.

    Thank you for this, Amy. I have a vintage black floral textile similar to that on the chairs, and this really helps me to know what to do with it. And, the reverse custom lampshade is very clever! Fantastic work per usual!
