“As a young designer, my first real estate purchase was a bungalow in Laguna once owned by Hollywood screen legend Bette Davis. Like many of the cottages that lined the coast years ago, it had a timeless traditional feel without the formal trappings. The renovation taught me that design and scale are not mutually exclusive. Cozy spaces exude an intimacy easily lost in the grand scaling of homes today. In developing Laguna, we were thoughtful about scale, materials, finish colors and textiles. Our goal was to achieve the same level of familiarity and authenticity that drew me so strongly to that seaside home.”
