The Journey

We are a husband and wife team currently residing in Long Beach with our three kids and a big black Lab named Ramsey.

For the last twenty years we have been painting murals, flipping houses, doing reality TV shows and most importantly cultivating a network of people we really enjoy working with and they with us.

We are now focused on staging homes and are committed to bringing all of our experience to that process.

A brief history along with our most notable experiences:

1999: Worked under the muralist Kevin Stuart McGee in Pomona CA.

2000 to 2005: Full time artisan doing mural painting, stenciling, decorative painting and tile/masonry restoration.

2005 to 2010: Full time residential designer specializing in historic homes.

2008 to 2010: Repurposed a 6000 square foot laboratory where the Richter scale was developed into a single family home in Pasadena.

2010: Did surface restoration and color forensics for the Jenny Reeves house in Long Beach CA. (A Greene and Greene home… think Gamble House in Pasadena)

2011 to 2016: Partnered with a commercial warehouse owner to develop several buildings into an artist colony at 5811 S. Broadway in Los Angeles. We emptied it, subdivided and populated the buildings with artists and makers.

2011 to 2015: Creative director for Reinhabit ( where we flipped many fantastic homes in the LA area.

2012 to 2016: Founded LA Salvage Staging Company where we did home staging, design and wedding rentals.

2015: Filmed a pilot for HGTV with my associates from Reinhabit featuring a home flip we did in Highland Park. The name of it was “Three Dads and a House”. It never aired. Can’t imagine why….

2016: Appear occasionally on the reality show “Restored” (Appears on HGTV and DIY Networks) where I do stenciling, murals and decorative painting.

2016 to present: Started John Douglas Interiors and we are staging homes out of our new warehouse location in Long Beach CA.

We service many areas including Los Angeles, Pasadena, Orange County and beyond.
