Looking to bring sophistication to their 1920’s Pasadena Colonial, the homeowners sought out Emily’s unique approach to traditional aesthetic. Knowing the nature of this busy home, Emily designed each space to be suitable for both the client’s love of entertaining and their three sons and two dogs. The result is an elegantly-appointed yet durable and comfortable home designed to share with family and friends.


THEME | Prominent blues, greens and reds in the original family room rug served as inspiration for the kitchen remodel and were incorporated into the fabrics selected for the upholstered furniture and window treatment. The colors carried throughout the space unified the home and allowed each room to transition seamlessly into the next.

FURNISHINGS | Continuing the tradition, Emily used the 1960’s Stickley dining table that had been passed down through generations of the client’s family.


MATERIAL | In the kitchen, Emily chose soapstone and butcher block countertops to add texture yet serve a family of five who love to cook and love to eat.


PALETTE | With bold colors in the common living spaces, Emily created a tranquil getaway in the master suite selecting calm blues, fresh greens and soothing grays.
