Em and I gutted this outdated brown palace. The cabinets, the tile, the finishes were all in need of updating and design. The views at this particular house were stunning, but were unfortunately overshadowed by the existing style choices. We saw this as an incredible opportunity to bring in our expertise and creative eye and give this home the TLC it needed while still keeping true to a more classic style of architecture. Check out our before + afters of the Bathroom and Kitchen. By the end of this renovation, we felt it was a complete success! We accomplished what we set out to do and kept on schedule (which rarely happens in the renovation World!). Do you like the Old World patterned ceramic tile backsplash and shower walls?

I think I speak for just about everyone when I say I LOVE before-and-after photos. It’s so gratifying to see the side-by-side comparison, monumental changes and massive visual improvement. But what’s often overlooked is that little word “and” that nestles between “before” and “after.” What that little word represents is the hard work, tireless hours and foresight it took to actually make that change a reality. Whether it’s a body transformation from a diet and exercise regimen or a structural and design renovation that happens to a house, there is always a ton of effort that goes unseen.
For some, creating the baby nursery sanctuary – a welcoming and warm space before baby arrives – is an exciting part of the motherhood process. For me, that wasn’t the case as it became a daunting task combing through picture after picture, Pinterest pin after pin, in search of inspiration.
Most of you may not know, but I earned my degree from UCLA in Women’s Studies. On the surface it may seem as though the study of the psyche of women has nothing to do with real estate investing, right? Well, believe it or not, the two correlate more than you’d think.
