Do you think of all the possibilities of your floors and ceiling in the design of your homes?

Sorry for the quality of the photos I have been going through some old photographs of projects and scanned these to share. They are in different stages of design of several homes for different clients. I have been lucky to have some clients that are not afraid to be bold (sometimes even too bold) but they are a blast to work with and a happy client is good even if I know I could never live in the place. Keep in mind we design to suit the client, these are not things I would personally want to live with in my home.

  • Those ceilings are pretty sweet. Not quite what I would choose myself, but excellent work none-the-less!

    They are not what I want to live with, but I design for my clients lifestyle not only mine. Most of these are for Latin American and European clients. The ones with the sunburst are just some regular Americans with extravagant taste.

  • That's hilarious a thousand dollar paint job and a jail house light bulb hanging from the ceiling.

    Wow! Not a house I would even considering buying due to having to make changes in every single room but I believe in decorating to suit YOUR personal taste. I hope the homeowners were happy with the results and love their home.

    Quite amazing workmanship. Can't imagine how difficult it is to work on ceilings.
