A city home provides a young family carefree space to cook, entertain, and explore the local art & food scene.
These are my favorite addition to any project. A window seat provides an intimate connection to the exterior while expanding usable space within the interior space.
An under used section this master closet was converted into a home office, easily sealed off from the rest of the house. An adjustable desk compliments the custom cabinets, which hide printer, scanner and shredder. There is still plenty of closet space left for our clients.
About the Project
In a sky-high condominium overlooking the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, a neutral color palette mixed with blond and dark-gray oaks, creates a relaxed canvas upon which is dabbed the client’s favorite colors – blue and purple. Scandinavian and Italian modern furnishing are mixed, along with exquisite artworks, to create a luxe, cosmopolitan feel that is refreshing light and relaxed.
The original request was to furnish the apartment quickly, while converting a 2-bedroom condo into a 3-bedroom home. Furnishings were selected to be adaptable, wine resistant and kid friendly. Soft textural rugs enhance bare feet living, window seats expand livable space providing places for reading, games and to lounge when entertaining. This turbo charged project took a mere 3 months to complete.
A year later, after the apartment experience water damage, we had a chance to reimagine home to fit current needs. Our boldest move was to add a home office in underused transitional space, adding a movable wall to isolate the room from the rest of the home for late night zoom calls with Europe and Asia. We renovated the kitchen, adding new hardwood floors and additional lighting.
