I have also won an award with a high end magazine in Rancho Santa Fe called Ranch and Coast magazine for Best Bathroom 2011! It will be the master bathroom on the Solana Beach home on "my digs" board page. I also wrote the article for the magazine regarding the Master Bathroom.
Also I have had 3 rooms with San Diego Home and Gardens published. Again a high end magazine in San Diego. They were also the Solana Beach home on my digs board. They were the family room picture (before and after shots) and the ladies den. The man's den or office from this home and the kitchen are to be published this year and next but the date has yet to be finalized.
Furthermore, I have been asked and have written 3 articles for San Diego Home and Garden's on their e-club newsletter, where you can view the articles online from different prominent Interior Designers in the area. They have an internet presence for their magazine as well.
This project is in the lovely Solana Beach area, only a few blocks from the beach. It was very simplistic in its original design and not very interesting. But with my clients excellent taste in English and French antiques we blended beachy with French and English elegance! We married Cape Cod and French design in the kitchen!!!! We had such fun incorporating design elements into this lovely project such as beams in the ceiling in the family room, wood panels with trims to an existing pillar in the living and dining area, corbels, trims, bead board, arches, glass cabinetry, wine refrigerators and holders in the form of a piece of furniture, an 1814 french armoire in the master bath with chandeliers and sconces from a French coffee shop, chandeliers from France in the kitchen, and a beautiful design where several inside architectural arches lead the eye down the main hallway ending in a lovely marble and used brick arched fountain through french doors.
