Nan Meltzer Design and Build

    My background is in art and design. In my twenties I studied painting at the Leo Marchutz School in Aix en Provence in southern France.

Upon my return to the states from France I created one of kind lost wax silver and bronze jewelry for 6 years which was sold throughout the U.S.

In 1992 I moved to Los Angeles where after a fortuitous trip to a metal scrapyard in downtown Los Angeles my company Revival Lightworks was born. For 14 years I designed and manufactured residential lighting that was sold all over the world.

In 2001 I was approached  to do the interiors of a loft in NYC for an actress friend.

That project led to doing many residential interiors in Los Angeles, Malibu,Venice, Beverly Hills and Brentwood.

On one project in 2004 after getting bids from contractors that seemed high I hired all the subs and ran the remodel of the clients home myself. This has led to many design and construction projects. I always work with licensed and insured subcontractors and am very clear with clients that I  myself am not a licensed contractor.

I work with a team of wonderful subcontractors whose pricing is fair and work is excellent.

I partner on some bigger projects with the contractor that does all my carpentry when we are doing new builds or extensive add ons where a licensed contractor is required. He is also licensed and insured.

I have expidited permits for many remodels in Malibu and Los Angeles. I am known for running the job efficiently,with a great attention to detail, and with pricing lower than most other bids. I am also transparent in the pricing as the client sees all subcontractors invoices.

I love to transform spaces and create for clients the amazing sanctuary our homes can be.

I work in all styles and am keen to have the clients input so that the space feels personal as well as gorgeous in all the design details.
