Describe the featured project.
This 4,000-square-foot, ground-up design/build project was in Redondo Beach. We worked with the developer to make it appeal to many different types of clientele and feel like home as soon as anyone walks into the space. We were there through construction and picked out all the material/finish choices, color palette, designed the kitchen and bathroom layouts, made exterior choices and more. Being in one of the Beach Cities, we wanted to incorporate a softness that would be classic and withstand the test of trends. We incorporated a color palette of soft greys and whites paired with warm wood tones and marble to make the home have a breezy, seaside feel to go along with the coastal vibe that the area encompasses.
What would you like readers to know about your firm?
We are a small boutique firm that’s able to deliver big impact. LH.Designs is able to give more attention and time in the construction and design process to deliver a client’s expectations.
What sets you apart from other professionals in your industry?
Our background in construction, training in interior design and experience in fashion. We have strong relationships with contractors and vendors in the construction industry, so we’re always involved at the beginning stages of planning for a build or renovation and know how the construction phase should go. Our formal training in interior design helps when reading or making changes to construction plans, space planning, material selections, creation of custom pieces, furniture choices and accessories/art. In addition, our experience in the fashion industry provides a unique perspective and upscale taste level that flows beautifully together like a great orchestrated runway show.
Any trends that you find particularly appealing right now?
There are two trends that I love right now. The first is people using their outdoor spaces as an actual extension of their homes and creating an indoor-outdoor area. We’ve recently been involved in designing outdoor areas that are usable all year and feel welcoming, fun and functional. The second trend we love is wallpaper; it can easily make a dramatic statement and add instant art to a space without spending a fortune. These growing trends will keep getting more and more attention, and LH.Designs will help keep them on the rise.
Tell us about some other properties you’re currently working on.
Currently we’re working on three ground-ups in the South Bay area, along with bathroom and kitchen renovations. We love working on big and small projects. The new builds are great because we get to show range in contemporary, modern and traditional style homes. But renovations give us a chance to be more creative because we get to know the homeowner and infuse their personality into the space.
