Check out the September issue of Better Homes and Gardens,
I am happy to participate in the Stylemaker issue :)

(the above kitchen is the home of actor Nestor Carbonell
and his lovely wife Shannon, the project I worked on while
they were living in Hawaii filming the TV show Lost)

  9. ON page 48 of the magazine there is a picture of you and there is a white chair with gray and white striped fabric. Can you tell me where that chair is from? I'd like to buy it.

  10. Great job, I love the banquette! I just received Better Homes and Gardens and saw the beautiful pedestal table. I would love that for my banquette and would like to know where you got that piece from. Thanks!

  11. Hi Jackie and Tennille, the chair and the banquet table are both custom made. Most of my furniture pieces are made by my workroom for the clients individual project. Maybe one day I will have a
    store :) take care!

  17. Love the San Felipe tile. I am considering it for my kitchen. I'm wondering if it would chip. It's so beautiful, but is it comfortable? I'm a little afraid of the color black on a floor. I notice it also came in two shades of black. Why did you choose the Jet black over the? Thanks so much!
