A Fusion of His & Her Styles

The master bedroom project incorporated the fusion of two personal styles.  Designer Samantha Knapp of Tiger Lily's Greenwich was charged with the task of blending the best of His-and-Her style with old and new items for this luxury New York City apartment.

The result is a cozy but spacious bedroom that balances the client’s love for modern yet traditional design sensibilities. The color palette and texture in this room are tied to the rest of the home, yet it is decidedly more modern than other living spaces, such as the master bathroom.

The Costa Mesa Barn

Here's a Los Angeles Times blurb on our talented California designer Corey Gash:

Where many see junk, Corey Gash envisions design possibilities. The window display artist convinced his family to leave its comfortable, two-bedroom town house in Orange last year for a run-down barn in Costa Mesa that once housed chickens and, later, a boat-building operation. “The first time I saw it, I thought it was an amazing space with great bones. I’d always wanted to live in a barn,” says Gash, who has fond childhood memories of feeding the chickens during summer vacations at his aunt’s farm in Colorado. Partner Krista Wallace wasn’t as enthusiastic. “At first I thought, ‘No way. I couldn’t live there,’ ” she says. “The place was a shambles — filled with old wood and spiders. There wasn’t a bathroom — just an outdoor shower — and I had just found out that I was pregnant.” Now, repurposed materials and furnishings give the remodeled 700-square-foot home a loft-like openness and a soulful style. Here, the entrance wall is composed of wood reclaimed from a church roof.

Design Guru Corey Gash

Design Guru Corey Gash for Wellbuilt Company

Introducing Corey Gash. Born with an abnormal brain and super-human talents, this guy has it going on. From building out a wooden music studio in the early 90's to a total renovation of an old coastal barn, Corey is the definition of a man's man and creative pioneer. He's also a music producer, drummer, chef extraordinaire, flea market king, family man, and designer. Before using reclaimed materials was considered "green" this guy would scour the back alleys of Newport Beach to find all sorts of reusable treasure. Corey is no traditional designer, and as a matter of fact, he fell into the design field by accident as his passion for music production bled into a passion for building music studios. This curiosity and pursuit to build music studios lead him to study design decades after he started customizing spaces. His own personal music studio, which goes by the monicker of Pheasant Studios was built almost entirely by wooden crates he found around various locations of Southern California in the early 90's. During the inception of this space, the foundation had an abnormally high ceiling, so Corey decided to create a second story living space equipped with a full blown kitchen, bedroom, and entertainment center. Pheasant Studios is the epitome of coastal cool boasting an americana, gentleman-like charm. Here's a few snaps from this wonderful place. Keep an eye out for this guy as we'll be highlighting his works as inspiration and one of our go to project design gurus for Wellbuilt.
