What She Wanted
Crystal Palecek, a busy mom and entrepreneur, successfully co-founded and guided the success of Rue magazine by channeling her longtime passion for interior design. During the process of renovating and redecorating her family’s new home, Crystal decided to reimagine the pool cabana into her personal studio where she could transition her professional focus from the pages of Rue to interior design projects. Already striking with its pitched ceiling and exposed beams, the light-filled space needed to feel inviting and echo the classic, California-cool style she had created throughout the rest of her home.
A custom built-in by California Closets for my desk area and storage was in my design plan from day one and was definitely a jumping off point. Since the footprint of the space is limited, I knew this would be an efficient use of space and provide the storage I needed.
