Before and After Bedroom



What was done? The room was painted a soft blue and a custom headboard, bedding, cornice boxes, drapery panels, and reupholstered bench were added to created a soothing retreat for our client.


We love the headboard we designed for this bedroom. We used a powder blue suede and added silver nailheads and crystal brooch buttons.

National Charity League Home Tour

We are so excited to be working on some interiors for the Canyon Chapter of National Charity League’s third annual Home Tour.

The fundraiser is on March 22nd, 2012. 

“National Charity League, Inc. (NCL) is a non-profit national organization of mothers and daughters who join together in community involvement within local chapters throughout the United States. Our goal is to foster a sense of community responsibility and strengthen the mother-daughter relationship.

Attendees will tour finely appointed homes in Coto de Caza. The event begins at the Rancho Santa Margarita Bell Tower Community Center where you will check in and enjoy a light breakfast, courtesy of Cinnamon Productions, lunch from Hanna’s Restaurant, boutique shopping before and after the tour, and Transportation. All net proceeds will benefit local charities that we work with.”

We encourage everyone to come out to enjoy a fun day filled with design inspiration! To purchase tickets to the event go to Look out for the beautiful rooms designed here at Judy’s Custom Workroom!

Before and After: Family Room and Nook


A family room and nook in need of window treatments and comfortable furniture conducive for conversation and television viewing. Before the scale of the client’s existing sofa limited the placement. The rooms lack color and connection.


After getting to know our client and understanding their needs, we designed a beautiful space that would be perfect for their family. We were drawn to these cool shades of blue, white, and taupe. A darker distressed wood floor was the canvas for custom window treatments and furniture. A custom rug was added to bring everything together.

Window treatment fabric: Stark Orsan-7360235

All of the furniture was created here at Judy’s Custom Workroom. We love these chairs!

Fabric: Kravet Bansuri-515

The family room is a small space so we created a custom ottoman with nailheads for storage. We also created a slightly smaller sofa with slimmer arms than the previous sofa to allow for more seating. The furniture now fits the room beautifully and the cool colors and “driftwood” finishes tie everything together.

Sofa fabric: Trend 02115-Driftwood

Pillow fabrics: Kravet 31592-516 and Stark Blk Canyon-7890349

Missing the Holidays Already…

Happy New Year everyone! We’re back and ready for an exciting 2012! 

…we’re just not so excited to take down holiday decorations, definitely not as much fun as putting them up! We thought we would share some photos of one of our client’s homes we decorated for the holidays this year.

The holiday season is when we all spend the most time enjoying our homes, snuggling up and hosting parties and family gatherings. You want your home to feel warm and welcoming and holiday decor puts everyone in a good mood. Keep us at Judy’s Custom Workroom/ Orange Coast Interior Design in mind for next year!

As you can see, we avoided the traditional Christmas reds and greens with the garland in this home. The color scheme is strictly white, gold, bronze, and silver to coordinate with the homes elegant furnishings and contemporary taste. We were still able to give the home a warm cozy feeling without using traditional decor and our client was very happy.

In addition to the entry staircase, we also made a custom garland for two fireplace mantles- one in the living room to match the staircase and the other more white and silver to match the family room furniture. Our client previous stockings were a little too casual and old fashioned for her taste, so we made new ones for her here at Judy’s Custom Workroom that look beautiful with her decor. They are so glamorous!

We hope everyone had a great holiday and is now enjoying this “winter” weather! 80s in January?! Love it.


It’s that time of the year, the holiday rush. Everyone wants their homes done in time for holiday parties, out of town guests, and family gatherings.  As it can be a bit stressful, we love making our clients happy and seeing their excitement when we complete their projects. We just came back from an install of a beautiful family room.

Many photos to come, but here is a sneak peak of 2 chairs in the room that we made here at Judy’s Custom Workroom. We LOVE this ikat fabric. It is Kravet: Bansuri – 515. The wood frames we stained in “driftwood” stain.  The chairs turned out wonderfully and our client was very excited to have a fresh new family room in time for Christmas.

Above is TJ Chamberlein from MicroSeal treating our furniture.

MicroSeal is a permanent stain and sun fade protectant that includes a first class, life-time warranty. Twenty five years protecting Aerospace Industry giants and worldwide independent laboratory tests back all our performance claims.

It is environmentally safe as well. It’s non allergenic and non toxic, safe on or around people, pets, and plants. No fluorochemical, or PTFE ingredients. Our proprietary trade secret formula has an EPA rating of GRAS (generally recognized as safe) and is non-toxic, non allergenic and biodegradable. To check out their website click here. It is an awesome treatment that makes your furniture truly last a lifetime!

Here is another chair we reupholstered with the same fabric.

Before the country wingback garden chair was covered in a traditional small check. We loved the detail in the wood frame and wanted to give it a fresh new look. We reupholstered it with this fun ikat fabric and added silver nail heads for a contemporary touch.
