Santa Monica Hollywood Regency Style Salon by Barbara Stock Interior Design

Los Angeles interior designer Barbara Stock, founder of Barbara Stock Interior Design took it upon herself to design the interiors of Brambila Salon, a hair salon nestled in the heart of Santa Monica, California. Even though the salon has been serving the Santa Monica area since 2003, they recently closed their doors in anticipation of a grand re-opening. The salon was moved across the street to a new, bigger and brighter space. The salon will be open again to the public sometime this summer.  As a designer, Barbara prides herself in producing designs that are as unique as her clients themselves. In short, Barbara strives to create a living work of art to inspire the art of living.

Considering the location of the Brambila Salon, it should come as no surprise that the style of this project features a design aesthetic that is as ambitious as it is distinct. Barbara’s goal from the onset was to combine the lavish Hollywood regency style with a more subtle beach cottage style. The Hollywood regency style draws its aesthetic from Hollywood’s Golden Age. One of the pioneers of this style was William Haines, a silent era film star turned interior designer. He took elements from the film set and incorporated it into the design of the homes of many Hollywood starlets. This style has seen a resurrection in recent years, especially in the greater Los Angeles area. Barbara does a wonderful job taking the essence of the Hollywood Regency style while toning it down by infusing it with coastal elements.

Bold and Flourishing Waikiki Asian Restaurant by The Schoos Group

Los Angeles interior designer Thomas Schoos, head of The Schoos Group, has made a name for himself transforming the interiors of the hospitality industry around the world. His most recent venture took him away from the streets of West Hollywood and put him on the beautiful beaches of Waikiki, Hawaii. For Thomas Schoos his Hawaiian getaway was anything but a vacation. He was responsible for designing the interiors of  Morimoto Waikiki, a restaurant owned by Food Network Star, “Iron Chef” Masaharu Morimoto.  This was not the first time Schoos has worked for Iron Chef Morimoto, Schoos was also in charge of designing The Iron Chef’s other restaurant in Napa, California, Morimoto Napa.

Schoos looked for inspiration in the Zen Garden when designing Morimoto Waikiki. Simplicity was his primary objective. He wanted to make reference to Japanese culture without being too obvious about it. This minimalist aesthetic was  achieved by limiting the colors and textures used and combining them with natural elements, like live moss and large corals, that are native to Hawaii. This subtle approach to design has resulted in a restaurant with a balanced yet distinctly exotic aesthetic.

The use of natural elements as decorative items, like this coral, helps connect the decor of the restaurant to the island it is located on.
