Inspiration

There’s a certain quality within every passionate designer: a constant, unchanging sense of curiosity.

Life becomes an ongoing quest to find hidden gems, a never-ending hunt for those things that inspire us, those things that stir us, as artists, as creatives, as professionals. Whether it’s found in the splendor radiating from the Cathedral of our Lady of the Angels or in the friendly atmosphere of our favorite wine shop, Silverlake Wine, our concrete jungle is filled with prompts that lead us to celebrate both past and present, and to fan creative flames for the future.

Since color is a vital accessory to all projects, rooms, and design concepts, we are unearthing the very best in L.A.

We’ve scoured the city for exceptional design finds that accentuate and champion exceptional color. From the hand-carved stools that sit in the French bakery down the street in La Brea, to the Spanish bungalow in West Hollywood receiving refurbishment, to the newest bustling brunch spot in Echo Park, we find inspiration everywhere.

We believe meticulous craftsmanship goes hand in hand with the finest color. And being members of your tribe, and co-conspirators in the search for design excellence, our desire is to share what we’ve uncovered. We want to further your efforts as style ambassadors and keepers of cool, so we’re bringing the beauty right to you.
