Research shows your surroundings can impact your emotional and day to day productivity. We at M. Swabb see our children and younger adult spaces often neglected and wanted to take a moment to call attention to some helpful ways to better support the growth and development of our young ones as they navigate the world through their own lens.  

If your child's space is in disarray it can impact them more than you think....

WHAT'S OUR WHY?

We are not your average interior design firm. We seek to create life experiences through interior design. We believe that our spaces a...

I must admit, sourcing artwork for clients is either the easiest or most challenging part of our process.

I believe the reason for this is because artwork is incredibly subjective to the way one sees or wants to see the world. We can go all in on texture, color, vibe or intention in someones space, but when it comes to going abstract or classic/pop or folk it ultimately depends on the client’s final gut reaction.

As a...

It's really no secret that your M. Swabb girls have a love affair with wallpaper - it's what we would go so far as to consider a staple, and we find ourselves recommending it to every client that comes our way.  While we're all for those clean, bright, minimalist walls, we think they pair perfectly with the punch of a statement wallpaper. 

The walls are freshly painted and the materials installed,...

About one year ago we received an inquiry about a new build in Shadow Lakes, Indio California. Shadow Lakes is a very private, very secluded development nestled around a beautiful man made lake surrounded by tranquil palm trees and breathtaking desert landscape. 

I remember the initial drive to the house and my jaw dropped as we entered the community, it felt like a resort, a retreat for close family and friends to ge...

Lately, I have been thinking about a project we completed a few years ago. I remember the call from Buddha Teas owner John Boyd to visit his Architectural Stunner in Cardiff, Ca. I was about 9 months pregnant and about to go on leave. The energy of this home is incredible but when we first met it felt a little cold and there was definitely room for improvement.

This project came at honestly the perfect time.  It...

Halli, our Lifestyle Photographer stopped by my new casa this week to take some progress shots and like most days we spend together we fell into a complete re-styling extravaganza and the inspiration of course was this coming Halloween. Halloween is by far my favorite holiday, don't get me wrong, I love all the holidays but I think it's the festive fall kick off that really gets me going. 

I love the pumpkin patc...
