“When starting any project, I look for the one element, product, color, material, etc. that I can’t live without, and that becomes the center of my design/story board. From there, all material choices, textile preferences, paint color selections, textural layers, and grounding elements start to flow and find their way to the project. The “one thing” for me from the very start of this project was the show-stopping True Refrigeration Emerald and Brass refrigerator/freezer column duo. Despite the unconventional choice, it was love at first sight and I knew without a doubt it would be the focal point in the kitchen. It was, it still is, and I’m still very much in love with this appliance masterpiece!” — Danielle Slutzky

The Great Park in Irvine: Past, Present, and Future 🏞️
In the not-so-distant future, this 4,700-acre canvas, once the Marine Corps Air Station El Toro, will tell a remarkable story. But what will that tale be? Some 1,300 acres are already earmarked as the Great Park, but its greatness is yet to be determined.
The verdict will hang on the development of the remaining land, particularly the 300 acres designated as the Great Park Framework Plan. From lush lakes to botanical gardens, a permanent amphitheater, open spaces, and a Leatherneck Museum, the possibilities are endless!
Yet, there's room for more. Great Park Neighborhoods showcase innovative living, while the iconic big orange balloon now symbolizes progress.
As we embark on this journey, let's reflect: What are your hopes for the Great Park's future? Share your thoughts below!
