“This one-bedroom mid-century apartment has expansive views of Alcatraz and the San Francisco Bay, but fell short on storage space. Our solution was a series of panels along the eastern wall for a tucked away office, bar and general household storage that looks equally polished whether open or closed. The use of mirrors defines the space and reflects the iconic city view.”

"There was a structural column in the corner of the kitchen. To work around it we shifted the column six inches and then used oak-clad paneling to create a pantry in the kitchen. The back of the column faces out to the living room and now serves as a built-in turntable (the baby blue pop that looks like a fireplace). We also built in discrete audio-visual storage."

“As a designer, my goal is to find that perfect balance between function and aesthetic. Organization on display is an opportunity to incorporate style. I like to bring variation in by using both flat and vertical containers that not only help get things off your desk and stored in an accessible way, but offer a chance to bring in a fun accent color, like this grassy green, which offsets the rich Newburyport Blue.”

"The goal of this master closet was to be uber efficient and glamorous. We tried to think of everything based on the clients belongings, we even have a custom cabinet hidden behind a mirror for her sunglasses. Lots of show storage for all types of footwear was imperative…as boots don’t fit well into the space a pump would. We kept the finishes on par with the rest of the home and didn’t forget to light the space well."

“Muddy wellies are a common sight in most UK households and especially for our clients who live in the countryside. What’s interesting about these two homes is that the one pictured left is a Jacobean manor house (dating from the 1600s) while the one on the right was a newly built mansion, yet the bespoke open shelving solution works equally well in both settings. Wicker baskets are a great texture for the countryside - and a practical solution for decluttering busy hallways."

"In this Upper East Side apartment the entry serves two functions: it introduces you to a beautiful space with its vibrant decoration, and it serves as storage central. Behind the chic wallpaper are strollers, bulk provisions and sports equipment. But because the paper and moldings go right across the doors, the whole mess is hidden away."

"The original stairs in this home could not accommodate the movement of modern day furniture, so as part of the remodel, a new set of stairs was added to the exterior of the home. In doing so, we gained a substantial amount of space on the landing that we converted into linen and storage closet."

"This “Monolithic Slab" of patchwork mirrors disguise various touch-catch opening doors to storage compartments for vacuum cleaners, flower vases, cleaning materials, etc. The under-stair storage is totally disguised as a wall of sculptural patchwork mirror."
