Bill Leffler’s house was a mix of arts and crafts and Mediterranean influences. He decided to give it a single personality with a groovy style update straight of the 1960s. It was obvious that this task was going to take a lot of hard work.

Bill called in the cavalry in the form of designer and longtime friend Mike Weber.
