Behind the Velvet Rope

A sneak peek behind our design process for the Ritz-Carlton Residences. Inspired by the heydays of Old Hollywood hotels such as the the Chateau and Beverly Hills Hilton, we aimed to create the same essence for a new frontier ~ downtown Los Angeles.
Our mood boards feature sumptuous and vamp tones such as Aubergine, Charcoal gray, Lilac and Smoked Bronze saluting Film Noir.

Opulent and dramatic pieces combined with sparkle that make a classic statement. Animal prints, and noteworthy furnishings evoke the days of cocktail parties and entertaining.
To carry into the twenty-first century of re-building downtown Los Angeles.
Angeleno magazine featured a stellar preview on the look of what's to come and gave
W&R a fab kiss on the cheek.
Me and Ron featured in the sneak peek of the Ritz installation.
Stay tuned for the final reveal of new high style living -

Menswear Inspired

In celebration of Fall we are featuring a small space with a big bang! One of our bachelor client's purchased a studio downtown as a retreat space for weekend getaways. Our approach to the project concept was men's fashion wear, especially Gucci's 2010 Fall Collection . Here is a sumptuous camel coat and ensemble by Gucci translated into interior space mixing velvets & linen textures with dramatic shades of charcoal, gray, gold and royal red.
Divine get up with espresso velvet coat, loafers and leather weekender by Gucci, absolute perfection. The sitting area featuring a velvet chair, charcoal wallcoverings and gold sheers.A textured fur coat in camel; a light, crisp gray shirt with taupe weekender bag by Gucci. Cozy and chic translates into this bedroom with a shaggy Alpaca rug, gray and taupe linens surrounded by mirrored and pin-stripe wallpapered walls.Remember to live large and fierce no matter the size of space!
