At Silver Elm Studio, we believe in reclaiming and rejuvenating the old houses such as those in the San Marino and Arcadia neighborhoods, improving and customizing them to the lifestyles of today’s homeowners, without compromising the quaintness of the neighborhoods and the quality of fine craftsmanship.


Every homeowner has a unique vision for what home means to them.  At Silver Elm Studio, it is one of our goals to help our clients achieve clarity and purpose in that vision.

We closely collaborate with interior designers, engineers, and builders to uncover the short-term and long-term needs of the project, considering function, sustainability, and innovation to find the perfect combination of architectural, structural, and interior design solutions that help our clients to realize their project goals and bring their visions to reality.


While we consistently show professionalism in every aspect of our business, we recognize that combining fun and creativity in our work allows us to produce out-of-the-box and extraordinary results for homeowners. So, whether designing your home or chatting over a cup of coffee, we strive for a great relationship and an enjoyable experience between you and the designer.

Together We Make A Difference

Enlarge the place of your tent; stretch out the curtains of your dwellings, do not spare them; lengthen your ropes and strengthen your pegs. For you will spread out to the right and to the left.  And your descendants will possess nations and will resettle the desolate cities.  — Isaiah 54: 2-3 NASB

Attention to Detail and Patience

We enjoyed working with Christina because of her attention to detail and patience, but more importantly she was quick to grab the design ideas and concepts we had in mind and translate the thoughts into our architectural plan. Christina is quick to turn things back and pretty good at keeping her promise on deliverables.
