If you are like me, the new year comes with resolutions. For many of us, one of those resolutions is related to transformation – eating more healthfully, getting organized or updating our homes. About this time each year, I start to wonder whether my resolution is actually achievable and I search for encouragement to keep me on the right track.

This full home renovation by Stefani Stein for a Silver Lake, California family gives me hope that large transformation is not only possible, but also worth the hard work entailed in achieving it. I promise that these beautiful images will give you the inspiration you need to carry on with your own resolutions.

Bio:

Stefani Stein Inc. is a full service interior architecture and design firm established in 2014.

The firm’s approach to design embraces the idea that each client and space are unique. Regardless of the project size or scale, Stein believes that inspiring spaces evolve from the collaboration achieved by listening to both the client and the architecture. With an emphasis on supporting specialized craftspeople and workrooms, the firm’s fabricators are an integral part of the design execution. All of this steers the narrative flawlessly from concept to completion.

This philosophy has led Stein to consistently create timeless designs and win-over celebrity clients. As a native of California, the relaxed yet refined lifestyle is a major influence on her work.  Clean, modern touches intertwine with both classical and unexpected elements throughout her projects in the boutique commercial and high-end residential space.

Stein’s expertise and designs have appeared in House BeautifulHouse & HomeInside OutLonnyMyDomaineSunset & Style Me Pretty.
