Studio William Hefner

Business Description
William Hefner’s fascination with architecture, nurtured by international travel as a student that fully awakened his appreciation for art and detail, has led to the pursuit of his career. After earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art History (including a year of study in Greece), he went on to receive his Master of Architecture degree from UCLA. Hefner then worked for Skidmore, Owings and Merrill before founding William Hefner Architecture Interiors and Landscape in 1989.

What distinguishes his diverse portfolio is an aesthetic sensibility that combines livability with a luxury of details and materials. The vision for projects is executed across the disciplines of architecture, interiors and landscaping. The firm’s work is elegant, expressing an appreciation of craft with an emphasis on natural materials.

His projects have been widely featured in numerous publications both national and international. In 2007 the Robb report named Hefner a member of the top 30 architects in the world for luxury residences.

Depending on our schedules, I do what Wallner Builders does either before I go to bed, or first thing in the morning. I love going around the house and fluffing pillows, making sure all dishes are in the dishwasher, recycling items in the garage container, dirty laundry or decide what needs to be laundered today, etc.
Dusting days usually involve 4-5 rooms so it's consistent on each side of the house, same goes for vacuuming. No pets here, but a husband who is rather oblivious to small details. Love him to pieces though!

I agree with Liz and Lisa., There are just some things which make an immediate difference.
For me - no leaving the house for work in the morning without :
1 ) Making the bed,
2) Unpacking the clean dishes from the dishwasher and putting the morning's dirty dishes in - close the door!
3) Hanging the damp bathroom towels outside or somewhere in the sunshine
4) Cleaning the dog bowls once they finished eating and filling up the water bowls.
5) Straightening the throws and fluffing the pillows on the couches.

OK - so that's why I get up an hour before hubby - but it's worth it. Nothing is more depressing than walking into a kitchen with dirty dishes and a bedroom with an un-made bed, when you return from a long day's work. By doing these simple things I get to spend a bit more quality time with the dogs in the evening before I start cooking and doing the washing! Now I must just get hubby to follow suit! Why is it that ( most ) men can not be bothered by these things!

I am not sure who made the dining table - it may have been custom made.
