A native of Santa Monica, California, Sarah Rosenhaus has built her career designing residential and commercial spaces in Los Angeles and New York. For over 10 years, Sarah has been creating beautiful and expressive spaces that reflect the varied and cultured tastes of her clients. Sarah has built a portfolio of projects working with families, entertainment industry professionals and businesses with projects ranging from interior spaces to full remodels. While maintaining that the process is a collaborative experience, her keen ability to listen to her clients and to deliver above and beyond their expectations is what she has built her career on.
From a young age, Sarah showed interest in many different creative avenues including piano, photography and decorating; where she formed a love and keen eye for fabric, texture, prints and color. Sarah got her start at Stephen Woolley and Associates, Architects as a Junior Designer working on projects for Sony, Boeing and Electronic Arts and several private clients. Shortly after, Sarah joined Vitra Los Angeles as an in-house designer and product specialist. During this time, Sarah worked in tandem with several high profile architectural firms, including Neil Denari, on the Beverly Hills offices of Endeavor Talent Agency.
In 2003 Sarah started SRID to follow her love of residential design and private events while still designing for Vitra. In 2005, Sarah ventured out on her own full-time and began working with companies like Backstage Creations designing VIP lounges at award shows such as the Billboard Music Awards, Sundance Film Festival and The Screen Actors Guild awards. From there, Sarah moved into working with industry professionals in the Hollywood Hills, Santa Monica and Malibu, where she gained much of her construction and project management expertise. In 2011 Sarah restored a 1964 Ray Kappe home which was featured on the 2013 Dwell on Design home tour and was considered one of the highlights of that year's tour. Kappe was pleased and excited with the quality of detail taken to restore the home.
During the few hours that Sarah is not working, she enjoys taking her two sons, Matthew and Rhys, to the beach in front of her Santa Monica home.
MEET THE TEAM
Sheeva is the administrative genius and logistics wizard of the office, simultaneously helping manage construction projects, operations, billing, and the admin functions of SRID. As the communication lynchpin of the team, and a problem-solver extraordinaire, she ensures that projects stay smoothly on course, the office lights stay on, and the clients are blissfully happy with everything from their furniture to their contractors.
Melissa is not only a superb stylist and a deal-spotter extraordinaire, she is also the curator of SRID's ever-expanding treasury of design samples. She can often be found combing through markets for the perfect accent pieces and flying across town to ensure that the client's perfect sofa is delivered in pristine condition and residing exactly where Sarah envisioned it before the homeowner can say " jauntily perched pillow."
