Vanessa is one of my coolest friends. She has a sophisticated yet edgy, trendy yet effortless style that only someone who was born in Italy, spent much of her childhood in Switzerland, lived in Paris, and now lives in LA could pull together.
We have had some fun times together in the desert and in the snow, we have shared both laughter and tears. Whether it's sharing wisdom and support through txt and phone calls or including me in her Thanksgiving dinner, Vanessa is a wonderful friend!
Now, on to the design stuff. Vanessa paired up with her good friend T'ien to start a design firm in Los Angeles. They showcase a unique and welcoming style that is glamorous while still being effortless. The rooms have a global influence and are warm, eclectic and bit bohemian. Their spaces are inviting; they do not have a stiff intimidating feel. On the contrary, they invite you to come in, spend time, and be yourself. The girls brilliantly mix vintage with traditional with modern to produce spaces that have a je ne sais quoi feel.
Some examples of their work for you to enjoy:
They are probably best known for their design of the top hair salon in US at the moment....Ramirez Tran. You have seen their haircuts and hair color all over instagram, Johnny Ramirez & Anh Co Tran travel all over the world stamping their signature look on ladies' hair. Vanessa & T'ien designed their Beverly Hills salon, photos below.

One of their homes was just featured on the front cover + 10 page spread of Danish magazine Mad & Bolig.
Thank you T'ien and Vanessa for sharing your hearts with us. Your soul and spirit comes through in your design, so your work makes the world a better place!
