Glass Bubble Chandelier

Who ever said lighting had to be purely functional? Make a bold, artistic statement while lighting up a room with a Clear Glass Bubble Chandelier. These chandeliers can be incorporated into a wide range of design styles, from modern to eclectic.

Barn Doors

 Barn doors can add an eclectic, antique or modern feel to your home.  
We are doing barn doors in a new home located in Hermosa Beach. Julie was impressed with all the great options available in hardware, doors and track systems.  Check the weight of doors against the strength of your track and hardware.  A little prep work goes a long way in creating beautiful and functional design.
     

This modern take on the barn door will add style to your room.


These barn doors  add a "shuttered" feel that is modern and definitely on trend

Rocky Mountain makes beautiful and functional hardware. Lots of  finishes available.
