It would be awfully fun to tout ourselves as the “go to” designers for Hollywood’s A list (heck, it would be fun to have even the D list in our hip pocket!). Imagine the press! The accolades! The great cocktail party stories that we would get to tell to riveted party guests! Well, Hollywood Sierra Kitchens instead caters to a different kind of star — the homeowner who loves design, is great to work with, and has an eye for what is beautiful, but who also just needs the help of the experts to pull it all together and to help keep the process sane, the look unique and tailored, and the budget in check. These clients are our life blood — they become a part of the Hollywood Sierra Family, and we are ever grateful for our growing family of really great people.
Interestingly, our customers’ good taste and our pretty darn good design skills and execution have nonetheless attracted the attention of a few Hollywood stars. For example, who knew that those great guys whose kitchen we designed back in 2006 would end up selling their house to Lauren Conrad, who in turn opened up her house for the reality series “The Hills”? And who would have imagined that the tasteful luxurious kitchen that we designed for a noted designer and antiquarian would now be the place where Kim Kardashian whips up gourmet meals for the glitterati and intelligentsia (yeah right!). Now yesterday, we discovered that a house that we worked on extensively for the spouse of a famous “as seen on TV” marketer (and which is displayed in our website portfolio as “Mid Century Renovation“) is owned by none other than Hannah Montana!
It is fun to think that the space that we agonized over to find how it could best be used for our customer; the appliance selection that would provide excellent function and form, but at a lower cost; the television placement so the cook could keep himself entertained while preparing to entertain his guests…all these spaces are now used by Hollywood types, in their own way…And apparently Miley Cyrus is using her Hollywood Sierra master bath in her own special way as well. You see, I just read an article online this morning that her latest scandal involves her posing in provocative nude shots in her bathtub so she could give the pix to her fiance Liam Hemsworth. And while the world scans the web to see the tittilating pictures, all I could think was, “Hey, we picked out that bathtub!”
