See How This Cinematographer Is Living Large In 800 Square Feet

What do you get when you have two creatives working towards a common goal? Pure design magic. A young cinematographer’s 800-square-foot home, located amongst the scenic hills and valleys of Sebastopol, California, needed a serious facelift, so designer Elizabeth Albert stepped in to get the job done. “It was such fun working with someone who is also very creative,” says Elizabeth. “The owner had his own vision and brought me on board because he wasn’t exactly sure how to execute it.”

The compact space was dated not only in style and design, but in its structure and layout, too. Elizabeth led the two-year renovation, stripping it down to its original bones. Since the house is so small, there was no room for cutting corners — every detail was well-thought out, from the exposed wood ceilings to the bubble gum pink dining chairs. “The homeowner wouldn’t settle for less than his dream,” says Elizabeth. “He appreciates beauty and quality.”
