A new home in New England

When Taryn and her husband made the cross country move from Los Angeles to Boston during the winter, designing a new space for their family in this converted 1874 church was the only thing keeping her going. The building is a former German Trinity Catholic Church that ceased operations in 2008. The Lucas is 33 new boutique, luxury condos and 5 stories of glass and steel were added on top of the existing church. Luckily, Taryn lives in the church proper, hence the original cathedral window shapes in the living room and bedroom.

Much of the style was influenced by her desire to bring more of her minimal California style to her new East Coasts digs. With new, South-facing windows, she was delighted to source many local houseplants and try her best to keep them alive. Geometric shapes and bright pops of muted colors are her forte and show themselves throughout each space.


calm and minimal

A major aspect of the new design was for the bedroom to have an overwhelming sense of calm. Taryn designed it to feel as calm and cozy as a a boutique hotel.

all the bathrooms

This homeowner in Redondo Beach commissioned Taryn to re-imagine his outdated bathrooms as he overhauled the interior of his entire home. We worked hard to tie them all in while maintaining the notion that the master bathroom should be luxurious, the guest bathroom downstairs bright and functional, and the powder room, a simple and pretty extension of the main living and dining areas.

Our style immediately clicked with that of the homeowner and this project remains a favorite.

a design for family, work, & entertaining

Carrie & Sean Murray are a busy power couple with two growing children. They hired Bone Collective Studio to rethink their 850 square feet main entry to their home to become a place where they would be proud to invite in their friends and family who are often stopping by. The entry way, powder room, dining room, and large sitting room all make up a fluid space where guests enter and feel welcome, thus creating this first impression was an important design concern.

A custom angled walnut screening device was designed to create a separation between the main entry door and the dining area without. The slats allow for site lines and natural light to carry from the frosted glass entry door, while still maintaining a completely separate space for dining. A new walnut dry bar was fitted into the existing bar space with floating shelves and appropriate lighting.

Like an unexpected jewel inside of a plain white box, the powder room was transformed into an chic, hotel-like experience for guests. Walnut again being used in the bentwood mirror while the midnight blue found throughout each space paints the wall and vanity, blending this whole plane into one dark element while the other walls are painted white and filled with a salon style hanging of black and white art in a variety of shapes, sizes, and framing techniques.

The first thing you see after admiring the walnut slat wall is the massive seating area just two steps down. It was designed to frame and flow with the newly remodeled backyard. The midnight blue is once again used to cover the wall behind the 13 foot long custom sofa. Further accentuating the deep blue is a gallery wall full of family photos, which also harkens back to the art covered walls of the powder room. The dark blue, textural rug ties everything back in with the existing cherry wood floors. Across from the midnight gallery wall is the new custom fireplace, clad with a medium grey stacked Arto brick. The concrete hearth runs across the entire length of this wall, creating more seating space for guests to enjoy during events. The thick walnut shelves are embedded between two new walls to give the whole fireplace its own space.

Turn around back to where you entered and on the other side of the walnut slat wall you will find a new smoked glass chandelier floating above a long marble table with black metal legs. The dark midnight blue color comes in again in the plush velvet chairs that comfortably allow up to 10 guests to dine around the table. The mirrors on the wall play with the varying metals and textures in this space while reflecting the walnut slat wall, further creating and cozy nook for dining away from the rest of the open space.

Bossladies coworking concept

This concept design for a women-led workspace came about in collaboration with Chelsea, the founder of Bossladies. She was seeking a space that would allow freelancers and entrepreneurs to work comfortably, collaborate, and grab a coffee. The space also opens up as a wine bar in the evening. We developed the program to include a nursery for professional new mothers to be able to have the childcare help they desperately need. The program also includes a massage room, showers, and a creative library.


schindler house

Bone Collective Studio was commissioned to assist in the restoration work for the old servants quarters of the Levin House, originally designed and remodeled by Rudolph “Mike” Schindler in 1925. Schindler was a mentee of Frank Lloyd Wright and one of the major players of Modernism in Los Angeles in the 20’s-50’s. You can read more about him here if you are unfamiliar with his legacy.

While the apartment itself was in need of a facelift, it aesthetically remained a space in the home that felt the most Schindler-esque, so the homeowners didn't want to change any of the existing millwork. The only minor design changes were made to ensure the desk was more streamlined and better functioning. Thus an expert millworker and finisher were brought on to rebuild and restore all the shelving as well as the built-in bed and drawers to their former glory. The old peeling and cracking plaster was removed and the walls were all smoothed out, bringing more attention to intersecting planes that act as shelf lights above, so ubiquitous to the Schindler aesthetic. The shag carpet was also nixed and wood floors were installed, thus bringing this 1920's maid's quarters into 2019 as a proper guest apartment. The architecture and millwork was expertly brought back to its original Schindler aesthetic thanks to a great contractor and mill working team.


The major design update in the apartment was the bathroom. It began and ended as a tiny space, even by European standards. We decided to play with the green tones much enjoyed by the homeowners and seen throughout the rest of the home, while adding a large mirror, the smallest sink we could get in the United States, and trading up from a tub/shower combo to a nice fresh modern shower. This part of the project was featured on You can see the original article here.

Taryn worked with the client and fabricator to design MFVD’s first US location inside of the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills. Two small footprints required a creative plan to be able to actively engage both spaces from the walkable storefront on the exterior, the interior storefront which faces the hotel conference rooms, and the middle passage way which connects all three.

A large sliding closet was designed to hold the point of sale away from the eye when not in use. The main priority was the display as much product as possible, this was done in both the windows and through custom designed shelving and hanging areas on either side.

Bone Collective Studio has been great to work with. They designed and architected remodels of my 3 bathrooms and handled all the details, from material selection to diagrams for the contractors.
