Creating a beautiful home supports us in creating a beautiful life. My vision is to take your vision, who you are, what you love, and who you are becoming, and channel that into an environment that is welcoming, inspiring, and restorative. I seek clients who share my quest for what is real, true, and genuine. I am elated to share the magic my team has created — just for you. My purpose is fulfilled when I see the positive impact our work makes in our clients’ lives. In younger years I traveled to France and Italy, where I steeped myself in the worlds of art, food, and wine. I fell in love with the ways that design and culture intersect; how we weave the threads of our personal lives and our culture into a rich tapestry that makes up our environment. My first career was in restaurant management; during that time my appreciation for the connection between setting, food, and community deepened. These powerful experiences formed the foundation of my core values as an interior designer: creating welcoming havens of beauty, comfort and grace that call us to perform the rituals of home and community — connecting with others, cooking together, dining together, playing, and relaxing. I am wild about transformation. My greatest joy is when I create an environment that is even better than what the client had imagined for themselves. I design in every style: Modern, Contemporary, Traditional, Spanish, Mediterranean, Craftsman, and more. I bring a warm, classic, and timeless approach to the aesthetic style that matches your heart, your community, and your space. I started LMB Interiors in 2002 when I was pregnant with my first child. The one-woman firm that began in my dining room has grown to include a team of talented, dynamic, soulful designers who share my values of authenticity, warmth, and a livable approach to interior design; now located in an elegant urban-chic office in the historic White Building in downtown Oakland. As a group, we complement one another’s contributions to the whole with a deep appreciation for our individuality, while inspiring each other to thrive in a culture of collaboration and graciousness. We conceive beautiful environments where love, family, and community flourish.

The Studio: We develop adaptive architectural solutions that bridge all aspects of a design problem. Our approach begins with the analysis of project components that range from environmental and use conditions to code constraints. We then look to varied disciplines that include architecture, interiors, landscape and construction as part of a comprehensive methodology. As a result, our designs respond in a wide-ranging, innovative, and often unexpected manner - resulting in space and form that is creative and fresh while maintaining use and purpose. This process engenders an architecture that is of its time and simultaneously, timeless. Matthew Baran: Matt is a licensed architect who has been practicing in Northern and Southern California for over 15 years. He has extensive experience with single and multi-family residential, commercial, and institutional architecture. He previously worked on large and small scale projects for firms as diverse as Angelil Graham (Now AGPS) and The Jerde Partnership. In addition to his own practice, he is a partner at the design build development firm Assemblage. Matthew teaches courses at UC Berkeley and the Academy of Art University, and has been invited to critique at schools that include Stanford, California College of the Arts, and USC. His research and academic work focuses on the use of broadly defined machines to analyze, extend, and respond to existing site conditions. His research focus includes mapping, diagramming and scripting using BIM, GIS, CNC fabrication and experimental robotics.

We are often asked what it is that makes our firm stand apart from what is admittedly a rather crowded field. When you partner with us, the first thing you get is a local architect well known in the community, who has lived in the great city of Oakland for 18 years and has been practicing all that time. This gives us a strong base of knowledge of the local regulatory agencies, their specific and varied needs, and that knowledge is very valuable when crafting a project for review. Secondly, you get a practical designer. Daniel Swain was first a carpenter and home builder before returning to University to pursue his degree in Architecture. That experience gave him a unique perspective on the construction process that is often not found in other architects. And third, you get a designer and builder who will care for your home as you do. Value its aesthetic and spirit, hear your needs and wants for your project, and combine those elements to create best project for you, your home and your budget!

Welcome to my Houzz profile. I have been a licensed architect since 1988, member of the AIA, and have received numerous local, regional, and national design awards. I was also very fortunate to be the winner of 2015-2016 HGTV "Fresh Face of Design", a national design award for design excellence. In 2016, I was on the panel of judges for the 2016-2017 HGTV design awards. My firm, Robert Nebolon Architects (RNA), is a nationally-known, award-winning architectural design firm located in the San Francisco Bay Area with projects in all the counties that surround the San Francisco Bay, and also located in Los Angeles, California. Our firm has been in existence for 25 years (and is still full of great ideas!!) What a client can expect from my staff and I is expertise in securing design approvals from the Design Review and City Planning Departments as well as a beautiful unique home design suited well to the site. We also work with other agencies such as the Fire Departments and state agencies in rural areas and sites with fire concerns, creeks, forested areas, and biological protected zones. My projects are usually on challenging sites such as built-over-water, floating on water, adjacent to water, extreme steepness, extremely narrow, rural/secluded and far from utilities, and high fire hazard areas. My clients can expect a high level of finishes and design quality in my designs. My work has been featured in numerous print and on-line magazines including Dwell Magazine, Sunset Magazine, Curbed, and the New York Times. I have been featured on HGTV (video and online articles), as well as numerous national and international architectural hardcover books and magazines. If you have land that is scenic, rural, or challenging, my office and my consultants can assist you. I look forward to meeting you.

*Authorized Dura Supreme Cabinetry* *Authorized Canyon Creek Cabinetry* We work with homeowners who are busy professionals working long days or running their kids to multiple activities and don't have hours to spend in showrooms. They have tried working with architects and are overwhelmed when they are sent to select materials on their own or they are frustrated when they can't read their drawings or visualize their new kitchen and bath remodel. Usually they are trying to make responsible investment decisions but are secretly worried they may make choices they decide they don’t like until it is too late. We typically work with people who live in Alameda, Albany, Berkeley, Kensington, Lafayette, Oakland, Piedmont, San Francisco, and Walnut Creek.
