Who We Are
My love of design grew from travels during my career as an actress. I translate the coastal inspirations of Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard, New Orleans' French Quarter, Spanish haciendas, and the great country homes and hotels of Europe, to suit the way we live today.
Beautiful. Warm. Inviting. The backdrop of your daily life.

For seventeen years, I've been privileged to work with a celebrity and executive clientele, as well as many wonderful families from all over Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley. I'd be pleased to offer you the same professional, friendly approach to designing or renovating your home.
Barbara Stock, Owner
About Us
My passion is to solve design dilemmas and create dream homes for my clients, from refreshing existing spaces to complete renovations and new construction. From concept through completion, I work to ensure the design you've approved becomes the finished home you've envisioned.

Time and again, clients tell me how the changes we've made to their homes have also changed their lives, leading to less stress, better family relationships, and improved organization and time management. They say their homes express who they are, enhancing their day-to-day living. They even wake up happier!

What do you imagine for your home? A beautiful and functional open concept floor plan, family room kitchen, restful master suite, wonderful outdoor "rooms"? Ample space for kids, guests, aging parents, work, hobbies, and/or pets, with plenty of storage and organization included? Or are your goals more modest, but just as important: to refresh and renew a room, incorporate family heirlooms and other beloved possessions, or spend less time taking care of your home, and more time enjoying it? Whatever your dream, I'd be delighted to work with you to make it a reality.
