The Inspiring World of Wendi Young


Occasionally while searching for inspiration I will stumble upon a designer I am absolutely in awe of.  Case in point…Wendi Young.  This image below has been all over the blogosphere and on many a pinterest board.  I didn’t pay much attention to the source until today.  I am sure you have all seen it.  To me it it is the quintessential outdoor room.  It has it all.  Can you imagine a more perfect space?



My dining room needs updating and I have been trying to decide what to do with it.  Here is my inspiration.  This is absolute perfection.  The art on the wall creates the scene…the beams…the moss filled trough…need I say more?


I love the use of unexpected objects as art.  Can you imagine a more ingenious use than this? I love the way the textures play off each other here.




How about this kitchen?  It is so understated. Classic but with a twist. It kind of sneaks up on you and takes you in.

This bedroom is so serene and peaceful, just as a bedroom should be.

All of these images are of a project she did in Shady Canyon in Irvine.  What makes Wendi’s designs stand alone is her ability to develop a design that keys off the personalities and lifestyles of the individual owners The thread that binds them together is the understated elegance and attention to detail.  To see more of Wendi’s designs go to  You will savor every image.
