Yes....this is a picture of me....but, it’s really about the shoes...: ) As a follow-up to my “Happy Birthday Karen” post from this morning...I wanted to share this pic.... When Karen passed away in September of 2011, her Family and Friends had a “Celebration of Life” at San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, CA. As a gift prior to the Celebration, several of us were given these custom-made Converse tennies in Karen’s favorite color yellow 💛 and her trademark “power shirt” gingham pattern print....plus the embroidered nickname “MUSH” on the side....: ) As I knew I had a project meeting reviewing slabs at the Concept Studio showroom this morning, I busted out my Karen Kicks!! I feel best when I’m getting through my days with some “bounce”..... Today, I actually feel like I’m walking on clouds with a Way Big Bounce!! The “W.W.M.D.” mosaic tiles on the Concept Studio showroom stairs represent “What would Mush do?” Miss You Karen....💛🖤💛🖤 Bye for now.....B.. . . @conceptstudioinc @maiazieglerdwyer @mvenegas4 @gloria_ranzolin #grateful #themushfoundation @converse @richardgoddard145 #celebratelife #bounce

Today I want to honor a thunderbolt of Life, Passion and Creativity, Karen Bishop💛💛💛and wish her a hearty Happy Birthday.....: ) . Sadly, Karen (affectionately known as Mush ) passed away from complications connected to bipolar disorder back in September of 2011. My dear friend, and Karen’s husband, Richard Goddard....shared a life of love, travel, dog parenting, sunshine, and business through the amazing company they created together, “Concept Studio”....a nationally recognized and respected stone and tile design studio founded here in sunny Southern California. Since Karen’s passing, Richard has shined a light on this heart-breaking disease by creating “The Mush Foundation” to bring awareness and “build a community dedicated to education, information, and support.” If someone in your life is suffering from BPD, please check out: www.themushfoundation.org . The image here is from our own kitchen, with walls completely clad in @conceptstudioinc hand-made subway tile...where we surprised Richard with this slightly modified ceramic holiday tile that was made in Mush’s honor.....with her signature “heart”. We nestled her memory tile into this quiet corner by the window where it gets the perfect splash of morning light to honor the gifts that Karen shared with those of us lucky to have orbited in her atmosphere. . We love you and miss you Karen....and you too RG!....😘 Bye for now......B.. . . @conceptstudioinc @richardgoddard145 @maiazieglerdwyer #themushfoundation #bipolarawareness #missyou #love #friendsandfamily

Happy Sunday...: ) Hey from a BEAUTIFUL day in Laguna Beach....with the beaches CLOSED off to access...:( If you’ve followed me on Instagram, you know I’m passionate about my drawings and sketchbooks....a view inside my creative heart...: ) Now I know I’m bias, but I’m feeling a revival in the conversation about “creating by hand” in this digital World we live in. I was reading with pride and inspiration yesterday about my friend @michaelmber in @milieumag and his love and expertise for his watercolors in creating his beautiful homes around the County....then....this morning....finding @1stdibs digital article on “Designers and their drawings”. Yes, the 3D virtual work of digital renderings is more “real” than ever, but maybe this “slowing things down” moment that Covid had forced us into is shining a light on taking deeper breaths while taking more time to create in a more thoughtful, less hurried way. I don’t know.....is it just me, or are you creatives out there feeling the need to grab a pencil and sketchbook or a watercolor brush and palette? Bye for now.....B.. . . #handmade #pencilsketch #drawing #drawingbyhand #graphiteonpaper #sketchbook #watercolorsketch #watercolor

These are such strange times... I’m sitting here in our cottage by the beach watching the marine fog roll up the street... Neighbors are walking by with masks on....safely distanced...no holding hands...seemingly no laughter...just getting out for fresh air. Every email conversation on my computer ends with something like “be well”, or “be safe”, or “stay healthy”....... But then a couple of things happened... Our older son, who lives on a distant island, sends me a text and says I have to watch this new show on AppleTV+ called “HOME”.....and that Episode 2 featuring a man from the South Shore Chicago is changing his small place in the World....one building and one dream at a time. This is “MUST SEE” as our son said.....”this guy is the epitome of cool”..... @theastergates ....truly incredible heart-felt and creative work he’s doing to uplift the spirits and value of his community. Just as I finish watching this amazing and inspiring episode, almost the exact moment....I receive a text from a wonderful client from years past....on this random Saturday....that includes something that inspired her to share, along with the most beautiful sentiment about “good health and guardian angels” and other wonderful loving thoughts... So....in these weird days, I’m looking for the sunshine in each moment and appreciating all that is great. I’m “putting a bow” on a great week that included a first presentation to a client for a new high-alpine mountain compound for a family that is excited about making new memories with family and friends....after my full presentation of plans (like this one posted here ) and renderings, they say “we LOVE EVERYTHING.....but can you add a sauna somewhere?” Ahhh......all is good. Wishing you a “safe and healthy” weekend.....may you be blessed with your own version of sunshine on this cloudy and foggy day....: ) Bye for now.......B.. . . #newproject #Fcovid #parkcityutah #mountainhome #familyretreat #familycompound #highalpine #bigviews #grateful #coloredpencil #handdrawing #handmade #pencilsketch #firstconcept #conceptdesign #architecture #design #gardendesign

Today was supposed to be Day One of our “Leaders of Design Council” Annual Conference...this year in Monte’ Carlo, France....: ) Given our “shelter at home” status, I wanted to give a shout out to my friends and colleagues that I will miss being creative with, learning from, being motivated by, stretching out long days into longer nights, and ultimately...coming home a better thinker and a better business owner. I want to especially thank @margaretetouborg @kgranet @d .c.colla @leadersofdesign for their year-long (and likely more ) planning efforts to make this another AMAZING global experience for our membership. THANK YOU for undoubtedly crafting what would have likely been, a magical experience full of Inspiration, Education, Motivation, Bonding, and plenty of laughter during our week together on the French Riviera of Cote d’ Azur. We’ll move on in health and safety while we continue to recognize and appreciate those in harms way trying with their hearts and talent to get this time in history behind us.....hopefully SOON!

I captured this image in 2011 while visiting a property I designed a home for in Newport, Rhode Island.....and have loved it ever since. If you’ve visited my website (terribly outdated at this point....but a new one “in the works”!!!...; ) you’ll recognize this image from my welcome page. I’ve often thought about the “first impression” when someone visits my website the first time and is greeted with this photo....” Hmmm....is he an arborist, a garden designer, a lawn care specialist, a maker of classic Adirondack chairs....?” My objective when I chose this unconventional image for my design studio website was that it would (hopefully ) inspire you to take a deep breath...pause....and relax a bit before you settle into your chair comfortably as I share the story of my work. . As I thought about today, this special day....Easter Sunday, and thought about what I might share....this image immediately popped in my head. . In these unprecedented days of uncertainty, anxiety, and fear....this felt like the right image to lift our hearts, remind us of gratitude, blessings, family, and the beautiful moments of our lives. This image inspires me to “feel” the sunshine on my face, the cool shade when I need it, the gentle breeze coming off the water, the soul and longevity of this old graceful tree, the youthfulness of an old-fashioned tree swing, and a comfortable place to sit while I enjoy the long view.....: ) . Happy Easter to you and yours... Bye for now....B.. . . #waterview #landscape #shadetree #newportrhodeisland #adirondacks #treeswing #grateful #blessings #easter #happyeaster

Happy Friday...: ) The sun is shining and the clear blue skies are making for incredible views over the Pacific Ocean....all while we’re navigating through the challenging reality of this “new normal”.....for now. . The Courtyard Series: Part XII We’re closing in on the finish line on this new home in the Crystal Cove neighborhood of the Newport Coast. I dropped in this morning to answer some construction questions (while remaining +6’ clearance! ) and enjoy the progress since my last visit a week or so ago. I love the way the morning light was backlighting our central courtyard....so thought I would share. This courtyard is the Outdoor “wind-protected” Living Room the connects the Main House to the Gym and the detached Guest House...creating what we hope will be the perfect level of separation and privacy between each use.....while absorbing the sun and light through most of the day. This olive tree seems to be struggling a bit from the transplant, so hoping it gets happy soon and starts to flourish as a new member of this family that will soon be living here....: ) Wishing you and your families health and wellness.

Drawing in my studio days are the BEST...: ) You’ve seen me post more finished drawings, colored renderings, and watercolors... But....sometimes all is takes is a quick loose study like this, classic graphite pencil in my sketchbook, to communicate an idea that wakes me up in the middle of the night.....take a quick iPhone pic and hit “send” to a client.....then wait for a reply. In this case, it was “cool sketch, but let’s try another direction.” So....we move on in search of another good, or BETTER idea......haha.....: ) Be safe, be well....

Yesterday was one of those FUN days....: ) YES...staying at least 6’ away from any breathing humans...but also out of harms way in the form of a giant yellow crane with trees hanging from a canvas strap! In the heart of the Newport Harbor, in Newport Beach California is Balboa Island...most famous (at least for me ) for its chocolate-dipped frozen bananas...with crushed peanuts, of course.....Ha! Just over a small two-lane bridge from the main shopping and gathering street on the “Big Island” (1175 homes ) lies “The Little Island” (228 homes ). This is where we’re building a cool Beach House/Family Compound for a wonderful and growing family. Yesterday was Day 2 of 3 “crane days” for dropping trees into their assigned seats in the compound.....located for shade, privacy, framing and highlighting the architecture, and of course......doing their responsible fair share of pulling in carbon monoxide out of the air to convert it to clean breathing oxygen....: ) You might ask, “with the house still under construction, why are you putting trees in so early?” Well..... The Grand Dame of our property will be sitting right where the job trailer and crane are shown in this photo.....our most majestic tree of the property poised to watch over the Newport Harbor and greet the friendly folks passing by on the waterfront boardwalk......more good things to come....plus a few surprises....: ) Bye for now.....B.. . .

Young people in our profession have some amazing skills.... Their ability to navigate a keyboard and computer into realistic architectural images, three-dimensional views slicing through yet to be built spaces, organizing graphic sheets with dramatic and inspirational images.....and text of all shapes and sizes. BUT, as I share with all young people I have a chance to meet, “don’t ever lose your ability to draw, and keep honing your craft...I promise it will serve you well.” The computer is most commonly today’s tool for communicating architecture and structure, but.....those days come along when your pen or pencil is the only way to convey and idea or produce a solution....”on the fly”.....on a peice of paper, drywall, cardboard, plywood, or old paper plate found floating around. I took this shot a few weeks back during a job site meeting in a small home office alcove that needed the perfect solution to maximize the available space. No comfy chair, no drafting table, no drafting light, no smooth jazz to inspire creativity, no iced tea by my side, NO computer...... Just six or so people, plus a great client, standing there by my side waiting for a proposed solution to our challenge/opportunity....: ) Then I say to myself.....”self, this reminds me why I LOVE what I get to do everyday!!!” Keep drawing..... #grateful Bye for now.....B.. . . #sitevisit #sketch #onthefly “construction #problemsolving #penonpaper #jobsite #underpressure #beforequarantine #handdrawn #newportbeach #newportharbor #grateful #magic

Happy Sunday.... I don’t normally post personal images on my feed, but this moment, happening right now, just captures so many feelings at this point in time....at this point in our lives. This is what Senior Year, Final Semester 2020 looks like....no classroom, no classmates, no campus-life, and a “Postponed” Graduation.....but still have a paper due by Monday...:( All this being said, we’re flying our colorful and proud flag in honor of all those that are tirelessly giving their hearts, souls, and talent to keep our Country moving forward...and to heal those in need. We are so GRATEFUL for you..🧡 We pray our local business’, and those across the Country, can weather the storm and make it to the other side of this unprecedented time in History.

The evolution of an idea..... As a follow-up to my post from this morning, I thought about how grateful and privileged I am to be given these opportunities to bring an idea to life and collaborate with my client to make their HOME....🧡 This thread of images illustrates the idea of “Concept to Completion”. You’ll notice how my original sketch is slightly different from the final version....as can often happen in the creative and collaborative process. My original concept was the idea of a wood and operable window box, perched up on top of a stone base looking into the tree branches and overlooking the pool. I LOVED this concept... My client (who I really do love and appreciate ) decided to share my sketch with a friend, who affectionately referred to my brilliant design as a “prison guard tower”.....:( Needless to say, I was disappointed that my “treehouse” version got side-swiped, but hey....the “compromised” version isn’t too bad either....; ) . .

I had read something recently that shared a trend happening around the Country where people are putting up holiday lights to brighten the spirits during this unique time.... As I was sitting in my Library yesterday morning doing some early emails, I recognized our local parking enforcement lady (who I see in our downtown area where my Studio is located ) standing in front of our house with a somewhat timid look about her.....I do a quick scan of our cars parked out front, and think to myself “what could the issue be....I’m parked in front of my own house, my registration is current, I’m not sticking out too far into street.....?” As it turns out, she lives up the street and wanted to drop off this beautiful and thoughtful note about how “your lights must brighten the spirits of everyone in our neighborhood, as they do mine”....and how she is doing the same lights on her own home....: ) Come on.....how amazing and sweet is that? So...the moral to the story is....next time you get a parking ticket, don’t start throwing swear words in the direction of the person that left you a ticket, as they just might be as sweet and thoughtful as our new friend and neighbor “Marlene”.....who has been proudly serving 30-years of service in our beautiful little beach town.....: ) .

The Courtyard Series: Part XI I made a late job site visit today. The house was quiet as the hard-working crew had left for home.....leaving me to enjoy the spaces and details that we’re wrapping up.....not to mention the late afternoon views over the Pacific Ocean and Newport Harbor....the Magic Hour...: ) This shot in particular is an interesting one, in that it really illustrates our approach to not getting too wrapped-up in the “what style is it” conversation. In this house, one half of the owners wanted a “classic Santa Barbara-inspired” Spanish House..... While the other half wanted something more “modern and transparent”. So....this is what can happen when you let the two design objectives organically brew for a while. We’ve still got some work to do, so I’ll share more when we get a bit closer. This is the “first impression” view as you enter the private courtyard from the street....my version of a open-air/tree-filled “Entry Foyer”. Something about a sunset...: ) Bye for now....B.. . .

Happy Sunday...: ) I was in a meeting the other day with a prospective client. We were talking about the process of creating a new home and the level of involvement they could expect from our working relationship. As I described the various phases of the creative process, I got to the point of talking about how we make decisions on materials, colors, and detailing around the house.....and how we “mock-up” all the various building materials and architectural details at full scale. They seemed quite surprised about this level of commitment and said, “oh, we just assumed the contractor figured that out.” “Nope....we make these decisions as a team”....: ) The images here are from our recently completed home in Kona, on the Big Island of Hawaii. The first image shows the finished results, while the following images show how we got there....including the “mini-shack” we created that featured all the various materials and colors we had chosen..at full size. Part of the exercise was to see how they all looked together as our “palette”, while the other purpose was to see how they would age and patina over time in the harsh Hawaiian sunshine and salt air . I LOVE this part of the process...: ) Bye for now....B.. . . @kukiogbc #islandhome #ohana #kukio #bigisland #mockup #architecture #materials #colors #details #porch #lanai #ipe @thewillowfarm Contractor: Maryl Construction Landscape Design: Forma Design Partners / Denver

Good morning! I’m excited to share yesterday’s newsstand find......”The Romance of Spring” issue of VERANDA magazine featuring our project nestled into a unique pine tree neighborhood in Newport Beach. Thank You to Stephanie Hunt for the wonderfully written story and to David Tsay for the awesome photographs. Peter Dunham’s interiors in collaboration with our passionate client really shine in their layered, collected, and curated design.....so thoughtful and perfectly matching our clients personal style. It’s always cool to see one of our projects in print, but then there is that feeling of wishing everyone that contributed their passion and skill could see their name in lights as well...when there is never enough word space to include them all. So.... In an effort to share some additional “THANK YOU”s, I want give some Instagram high fives to the whole cast and crew that made this project happen, with some extra jumping chest bumps to Chris Dyer and Aaron James from JCDyer Co. for the top quality construction, to Chris Shotz of Tom Deason Building Company for spending almost 6-months of his life patiently and masterfully piecing together the reclaimed 18th Century bookcases in the Library, to Pete Phillips from Peter Phillips Design for his detailed design, layout, and drawings of the landscape and hardscape, to Ron Ritner and Fernando Gomez from Ritner Group for their continued collaboration with me on the architecture effort, to Gerald Olesker at ADG Lighting for the custom lanterns, to Dennis Shaffer Painting and his talented crew for making the whole house shine, to Scott Lindsay and his team for the amazing stone and tile work found throughout, to Perry Palmer and crew at Palmer Masonry, and last but not least, our terrific clients (who humbly decided not to have their name in the article ).....Thank You “L+J+T” for your drive, passion, patience, and creating a HOME for your family that we can all be proud of....; ) Bye for now.....B.. . . @verandamag @peterdunhamdesign @a_aron_34 @tannerdeason @tomdeasonbuildingco #veranda #englishcountryinspired #newportbeach #bigcanyoncountryclub #stonepines #bigtrees #swimmingpool #poolhouse #bluestone #outdoorliving

Our amazing and fully committed client now has the Summer Camp Schedule booked solid and fully ready for pancake breakfasts, wakeboarding, fishing, whiffle-ball tournaments, popsicles, margaritas, pizza-oven extravaganzas, and laughter-filled camp shenanigans. I’m so grateful to have been a part of this one....: ) Let the fun begin!!!! Hope your weekend is great..
