Los Feliz Home

A classic Los Feliz Mediterranean, circa 1922, sits on over 1/3-acre of park-like grounds on a street-to-street lot that adjoins Laughlin Park. The house has wonderful indoor/outdoor flow and spectacular yard has a lagoon style pool. The clients wanted a Bali Modern feel to the interior.


Laguna Beach Asian

Located in Laguna Beach, CA, the original builder of the property worked in Japan in the 1960's and was inspired by Japanese architecture as evident in the dramatic ceiling structure of the living room. CMA added square footage to the project and integrated the flow of the living spaces as well as updating the kitchen. The finished space is a peaceful refuge for the clients and friends.

Hollywood Condo

Old Hollywood

Old-style 1970's condo transforms to glamorous Hollywood pied-à-terre with dramatic effects. The goal is old Hollywood with a nod to Grauman's Theater styling. Custom mercury mirror tiles pair with an antique French iron table, antique ancestor paintings and vintage turquoise Foo Dogs to add grandeur to a small entry. Blending custom designs with vintage furnishings enhances a bold, eclectic art collection.



The Ithaca project was envisioned as a Cape Cod inspired design with a restrained classicism.
Sailhouse Signature Homes wanted us to create an interior architectural design and materials canvas that was at once classic and timeless, one that could be styled either modern or traditional, depending on the needs of its future residents.
Project designers Cathy Morehead and Jeffrey Pickin focused on a quiet elegance in their design selections for in the crown molding, oversized baseboards, fireplace surrounds, rich materials and cabinet designs.

Modern Work Space

Newport Beach House

Crystal Cove California

CM+A selected generously scaled furnishings, custom and antique, set against the crisp white of Benjamin Moore's Affinity 'Gardenia' paint.

The breezy openness of living space combines with sweeping Pacific Ocean views to give a sense of year round vacation.


Villa Park Home

Classic Ranch House

The reinvention of this classic ranch home occurs in phases. An extensive kitchen/study remodel reconceives the social hub of the house for a very active family of five. One by one, five bathrooms transform using durable, calming materials. Bedrooms meet the varying tastes of teenagers and their more sophisticated parents. The 'great' room and outdoor living space are reinvented for relaxation and entertaining on lazy summer evenings.
