New Work – Summer 2014


It’s that time again….I’ve compiled a fresh “New Work” collection with the best of the best since May. Check out all 25 images HERE!

Many thanks to the awesome designers, architects, builders, and stylists who labored to create these spaces:

Brownhouse Design  •  Kathy Price  •  W Design  •  Muratore Corp.  •  Cindy Bayon  •  Heather Menegat  •  building Lab  •  Atria Senior Living  •  Custom Kitchens by John Wilkins  •  Joy Wilkins  •  Karmela Dizon  •  Enlighten  •  Tracy Toepfer  •  Design Image  •  Carol Kelly  •  MJK Homes  •  Matt Komo  •  Lencioni Construction


(More) Highrise Happiness from Muratore


We wanted to relate the gorgeous art-deco grill covers to the (gorgeous) art-deco Golden Gate Bridge….but the fog did not cooperate! We watched all day and shot this when things were best, but still no bridge… Still: how do you not plant a human being in that chair?! Had to do it! The biggest lighting challenge with this shot was making sure the chrome features of the grill “popped” appropriately, which meant giving them something bright to reflect.

We’ve shot several projects with Muratore this summer, so here’s another; this art-deco inspired condo atop San Francisco’s Nob Hill.


I loved the way the aggressively patterned floor carried through to the grid of the San Francisco streets far below.



Maple burlwood veneer coupled with black granite countertops (and black acrylic cabinets) make for a dramatic yet inviting kitchen.




We couldn’t resist this hallway shot, featuring the astonishing Egyptian-motif doors! The “Indiana Jones” fedora was a last-minute addition…
