Today

We just finished this beautiful and elegant Farmhouse Kitchen, Butlers Pantry, Formal Dining area and Laundry room in San Juan Capistrano. This project was fun to help design, with the help of the designer who brought me in, Rejoy w/ Rejoy Interiors. The finish is antique white, and the flooring and island counter top were fabricated out of reclaimed lumber.

We are thrilled with how this job turned out, and truly enjoyed helping our clients bring their dreams to fruition, and then sharing it with you!!! Call us with your next remodel project!

This is a job that we just finished a month or so ago, it was for Isabella, our adopted Daughter, whom we’ve had in our home since she was a newborn. Isabella is now 20 months old. When she was about 16 months old she started trying to crawl out of the crib, so we decided to remodel our master walk-in closet, to give her a space to call her own.

We demoed the master bedroom, walk-in closet, custom-built organizers that we built 6-7 years ago, and fabricated Isabella a pair of dressers that have open uppers above. Once the furniture was installed, we thought it would be nice to get creative and make our lil’ princess a fun Castle Facade. It turned out very cute and the look on her face the first time she crawled into her new domain was priceless. We also designed and fabricated some new armoires left/right of our bed, small dresser drawers w/ open display uppers down to the wooden counters and a wainscoted headboard with a coffered valance with LED lights on a dimmer above. We loved the way it all turned out!!!

Something from the Past, Present & Future

 

Yesterday

    Wanted to share a cool fun project that we did over the holidays. This is a Lemonade/Coffee Stand that we designed, fabricated, finished with a Marine Grade Flat finish.

The lumber was from an Old Gate that we’ve literally had stored on our premises for the last 2-3 years. We tore it apart, de-nailed, scrapped most of the loose paint, brushed the weathered soft lifted grain and dirt build up, but tried to preserve some of the natural beauty that only time can produce. Once the PC was built I felt it needed some more TLC, so I went down to the local metal/salvage yard and found some reclaimed, fun items to use as decorative PC’s. This was a gift for our Adopted 5 year old son. This PC was inspired by my wife Dhasti.

 

Today  

    I wanted to share a project that was just installed in one of the new beautiful Homes being built in Brea Hills.

Family Room   bonus room

This is 1 of about 6 areas that we tackled for the client. We did large custom cabinets in the Bonus, Family and Formal Dining rooms. We also did some custom cabinets, White Lacquer in the Master Bath, one of which was an amazing Vanity w/ angled M.D. Chests to the clg, w/ a back lit frosted mirror between the M.D. Chests. We also redid the His – Her Master Walk In Closets, which were fabricated out of the new state of the art textured Melamine’s, which are exploding in the industry. I will get more photo’s down the road and share as the home is all put back together!

 

Tomorrow

    We are excited about the numerous jobs that we’re bidding, some of which are small -mid sized and have a few large Estate sized Historical Home in Pasadena that both look good! We’re bidding a few new homes in Newport Coast. We’ve got an amazing custom kitchen in Walnut that’s brewing that will be without a doubt the fanciest kitchen we will have ever done, if and when it hits… keeping my fingers crossed.

 

Some things to remember.
We’re basically a 50 mile radius shop, so yeah when the phone rings we’re flying out to see what we can do to help TEAM up with our clients, often getting involved early in the project, helping with the design and budget process.

  • Do you have a job coming up???
  • Do you have a friend, neighbor that you’ve heard talking about a project that they may be getting under way???
  • Do you have a project that you’ve done in the past, that was an amazing experience or did you have drama along the way? Please take a few moments to allow others to hear the good, bad and ugly. The majority of new clients I meet are nervous and still damaged from the last remodel that they did.
  • The Best advice I give is to strongly recommend that the clients do their homework:
  • Go online and check out every company that is seriously being considered as an option for your remodel. From the convenience of their computer, within minutes you can read any review that was left from previous clients about how their experience was with that shop. Go to either www.BBBCheckOutACompany.com and www.cslb.ca.gov at both of these websites, you can quickly enter the company name and see if their license is in good standing and read any reviews that have been left by clients that had a poor experience.
  • We here at Interior, Exterior Designs Inc. have never had a negative review written about our company. This is the most important stage in a remodel……. if you don’t do your homework.
  • Go see the shop, the facility and showroom. Make sure they actually do have a shop and that they aren’t just brokers.
  • Ask to go visit a previous job or 2 so you can see a finished, installed project, ask how long the job was done, so you can see how the finish is holding up.
  • Ask for a Residential Referral List, w/ names and phone numbers.
