Growing up, Sean was always surrounded by design and art as influenced by his mother and grandmother. He recalls his grandmother’s home and his own childhood home changing constantly as each would be redecorated to reflect the upcoming season. At a very young age Sean began participating in this process and naturally began to see things in a different way…
Sean’s professional career influenced fashion and residential retailers including Williams Sonoma, the Gap, Inc., Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware before he established his own company more than 10 years ago.
Sean Gaston directs all design for residential builder, Bee Renovated, Inc.. He has focused on the renovation, preservation and interior design of homes throughout the San Francisco Bay area and Southern California. After falling in love with Palm Springs on his first visit years ago, Sean’s work and clientele expanded to include the Coachella Valley. “It was like a breath of fresh air coming to Palm Springs for the first time….the architecture, landscape and cultural mix have dramatically changed and inspired my aesthetic.”
A passion for travel, design and fashion has helped shape his viewpoint on design today. Described as “curated and collected…not decorated”, Sean’s work is a thoughtful process whereby each piece can stand alone or fold nicely into the design. He is known for his artful blend of vintage and modern furnishings with a handsomely chic, comfortable and sophisticated point of view.
A unique instinct and sense of style has led Sean to discover obscure treasures others might overlook…the art and artifacts of flea markets and estate sales. It is these very pieces that give a space depth, a sense of history and its soulfulness. It takes a space from simply beautiful to one of striking individual character with a personal thumbprint.
Due to Bee Renovated’s success, Sean now has the freedom to partner with select clientele, to focus on private, high end residential spaces. This is where the true essence and creative process can take on the individual personality of the client. With Sean’s artful eye, he carefully guides clients to help them discover what they perhaps didn’t even realize they desired.
