A year in Review 2012

I am very thankful for every moment I experienced this year as it has not only made me grow, but it has also motivated me to do more, bigger and better... here's a year in review of 2012.

January 2012 started off with a bang with an amazing feature In Real Kitchens - and we landed a great renovation project because of it which we just completed and getting ready to photograph.

In February I was invited to Fashion week with Brizo , which has turned out to be one of the best business trips of my life .  I met some amazing designers on this trip and have made great friendships.  THANK YOU Brizo for this amazing opportunity .  Thank you Christian May & Brandon Smith for the nomination.

In March we received recognition : "Best of remodeling 2012 bathrooms in Los Angeles" from

In April Worked we worked on an Hgtv episode of House Hunter Renovations , where we used the NEW Black Matte Touch Faucet by Brizo and joined the Decor Mentor group.

In June we were featured in Small Room Decorating... Our client's home office / guest room project and started a couple new projects.

The summer was fun!  Fun filled with projects , and juggling the home life with kids beign off of school... Lucky for them they had Art Camp at the LACMA, otherwise they might of been interning at EMI Interior Design all summer long :) 

In October the HHR Episode aired  and went to I High Point Market with my amazing designer friends Michelle Workman & Shirry Dolgin.  These two woman are incredibly talented and inspiring. Very Thankful to have them in my life. 

We (EMI Interior Design Team) are very blessed and thankful to have about 14 running projects on the boards.  They are all at different stages, and as one finishes another one starts.  Some are big some are small. Some new clients and a lot of repeat clients.  

We are ending the year with a featured in Small Room Decorating -Spring 2013 issue , a perfect way to end December.

This has been an amazing year and I am thankful for all the connections I made this year with everyone, too many to name, but you all know who you are.  I am grateful.  It has been an eventful year. 

Cheers to a fabulous New year !   Excited to see what 2013 has in store.

Small Room Decorating Magazine 2013

Featured in Spring 2013 Small Room Decorating Magazine

Let's face it, when you have a small space you have no choice but to get creative to make the most of it.  It challenges us to think outside the box.

This new issue of Small Room Decorating Magazine-Spring 2013 which is on newsstands now is filled with lots of inspiring ideas on how to make your small space Big!  My work is featured on page 8 and 9.

My tips featured include:
-Build a multi-functional Divider to break up room and create spaces.

- Add layers & texture (Especially to Small spaces) with different materials & finishes .

-Use up vertical space : Take tile up to ceiling as well as shower curtains.

Thank You Small Room Decorating Magazine for including my work.
