Lauren O’Connor

I am a true California girl, born and raised. A lover of trees. Spectator to the alluring Pacific in its many moods. I am inspired every day to create, transform and celebrate nature’s beauty and light through my design work. I started designing “dream homes” when I was very young, free-handing floor plans in graph paper notebooks. After many years spent honing those skills, I feel so fortunate now to have the opportunity to share that passion with my wonderful clients. Particularly when it comes to designing unique custom kitchens – our signature area of expertise – I am energized by the process of gathering and refining natural elements such as stone, metal, sunlight and wood grain in my quest to deliver the concept of home as living, breathing sanctuary. I have in-depth discussions with my clients about cooking and entertaining. Isn’t that what life is all about? The cultivation of the experience of home is far more important to me than the style or outward appearance of a space. I encourage my clients and everyone I meet to appreciate life’s daily rituals: breathe in the fresh air, feel the warmth of the sun on your face, enjoy a delicious meal and savor this beautiful place we call home.
