I had the pleasure of working with Donna and Caitlin Whelan on the remodel of my residence in Corona del Mar over the course of the last few years. After starting with a kitchen remodel, we all fell in love with the finished product, which led to the eventual remodel and repurposing of the remainder of the house.
Donna and Caitlin are both a joy to work with. They work extremely well together with each complementing the skills of the other. While the project was challenging at times (c'mon, what construction project isn't!!), we had fun working together. Idea development meetings were fun was we challenged one another to push the envelope.
In the end, we collectively created a space that is casual and comfortable, and doesn't have that "designer" look that i loathe. The house is authentic, and the proof is evident each time a new guest walks through the front door and comments on how interesting this house has become.
