Residential Interior Design Projects by Los Angeles based designer Ashleigh Underwood
This space need to be cool and simple as two very dramatic rooms come right off of it. To do that we incorporated custom wall color, a large pattern wool rug and interesting art and accessories, all of which complimented the adjoining rooms in style and color
The custom Balthaup kitchen was designed with a true chef in mind. The clean lines and muted colors were offset by the amazing artwork which was suspended from the ceiling. This space required a total renovation and thus every surface was customized to the owners preferances
This area, between the kitchen and family room, is a catch all for the family. Eating space for 3 high school boys, newspaper reading space for Mom and low key dining space. The marble topped Saarinen dining table and Paola Lenti outdoor chairs can stand the test of time with kids in the house, the Flotation Chandelier provides direct light when needed and ambient light for atmosphere all coming together to create a truly multi purpose space
Everything about this space was customized to the clients needs in entertaining and tastes. Clean crisp modern lines, interesting finishes and an amazing piece of art that is always a point of interest at every dinner party
