Malibu Beach House
All elements maximize the sweeping ocean views in this second home for a family of five. The furnishing does not overpower, but invites the family and guests to enjoy the ocean views. Materials were selected to withstand the sun and sand. Because the family’s main home is formal in tone, their beach house incorporates a more modern aesthetic without harsh lines.
This classic modern home, in the style of Richard Neutra, has an open floor plan with large spaces that make it ideal for entertaining. Furniture defines the spaces, allowing guests to mingle in small or large groups. The home incorporates an eclectic mix of styles, unifying his love of all things modern and her appreciation for antiques and objets d’art.
Holmby Hills Estate
Built in the 1920s, an American interpretation of Normandy style, this house reflects the taste of its young owners. Composition and color bridge the juxtaposition of modern art and antique furnishings. Acting as senior designer and project manager with Thomas M. Beeton Inc., Danielle guided this three-year project.
Holmby Hills Pool House
An octagonal shape defines this two-storey pool house, hidden in the rolling hills of the family estate. The architecture stays true to the style of the main house, with reclaimed antique tiles from Europe and fumed oak floors. By day the pool house functions as an informal space featuring a Dunbar inspired sofa, a vintage Danish club chair and a pair of Maurice Pre chairs. By night, large doors open to the outside, setting the tone for formal evening entertaining.
Originally conceived as a Tuscan style farmhouse, this Brentwood home is a peaceful oasis for its owners, savvy fashion industry executives. Furniture is pulled away from the walls seeming to float in the room. The palette is neutral, with splashes of color - citron, pomegranate and lime – to direct the eye from one room to the next. Accessories abound and are forever changing.
A complete kitchen renovation transformed this small space into an efficient kosher kitchen. Eliminating an unnecessary door allowed for two storage pantries. Materials were selected in tribute to the building’s pre-War design. To avoid the boxed-in feel so common in Manhattan kitchens, one wall consists of solid, ceiling-height cabinets while the other wall remains open.
Table of 10
Contributed by designing a table for the 9th annual Avenues of Art and Design in support of The Help Group. Danielle partnered with graphic designer Cleo Johnson in creating a table based on nature’s forms. Combining Danielle’s eco-friendly fabric with wood, flowers, branches and leaves, the hand-screen printed designs appear to grown from the ground and culminate in a table top filled with organic delights.
