why this blog

Ten years ago in Los Angeles I designed my first “bachelor pad”.  It was a small project – a light renovation of bathrooms, a kitchen, paint colors and a little decorating.  From the very start, I loved working for my bachelor client.  It was fun, and like many guys he was direct and knew what he wanted: a nice home.  He was happy to look at the choices I put in front of him, make a decision and let me handle the details.  More or less, a dream client.  The result was a bachelor pad that was warm and welcoming.  Distinctly masculine without making one think, “Hef could live here.”

Ever since that day I have always derived a great deal of pleasure working with bachelors, they are refreshingly open and honest.  There are few grey areas when talking about design, comfort, time or money.  Additionally, I get to provide a full “soup to nuts” service.  I’ll fill the kitchen with all the necessary gadgets, I’ll train the housekeeper, I’ll even provide floral arrangements and help pick out a gift for their mom or girlfriend.  And occasionally, I’ll even help pick out the girlfriend.
