Inspired by his Southern California upbringing, Jeff Andrews and his team create interior and exterior spaces with equal magic. Jeff’s attention to detail and demand for excellence is reflected in his top-notch group of master crafts people and artisans.
I’ve always been inspired by variations in peoples’ lifestyles and the idea of creating beautiful and original homes for different walks of life. I love this career because it’s not about any one style or design element — it’s about the big picture. I love interior design and how it positively impacts my clients’ lives.
I love travel as inspiration. It takes you out of your element and routine, so you’re noticing the details. It’s everything from architecture to shopping to nature — but it’s really about observing the different lifestyles and ways that people live around the world that inspire me.
My creative process is constantly evolving. Sometimes it’s from the ground up and starting with a rug, sometimes we begin with a statement wallpaper on the ceiling, or even a piece of art. It’s hard to define where the creative process starts and ends; it’s just a part of my life, and that evolution is what keeps it exciting.
Layered. Thoughtful. Glamorous. Textured. Livable. Sophisticated.

Artisans at the top of their fields. Finish carpenters, furniture makers, painters, stone fabricators. These are the people who make the vision a reality.
If you could design a space for anyone, what kind of space and for whom would it be?
I’d love to do a kitchen for Martha Stewart. The level of creativity and organization needed for that project would be very inspirational.
