Elegant traditional furnishings seamlessly blended with modern architecture.
Challenge: Move owner with traditional furnishings from three-story San Francisco pied-á-terre into smaller, modern, California suburban one-story residence.
- Selected existing furnishings for scale appropriate to down-sized home and alternate uses.
- Kept owner’s love of striped patterns by changing formal silk draperies and playful multi-toned stripe in living, dining, and master bedroom to casual two-tone duck stripe for family room draperies and throw pillows.
- Set the stage for casual indoor/outdoor entertaining with rattan furniture, pottery, copper accents, and textured area rug over tiled floors.
- Followed “less is more” motto with open and inviting space planning and accessory and art placement.
- Incorporated owner’s favorite looks with playful color shifts of peach and salmon with river rock, flat-cut bamboo, quartz and granite tops, rain-patterned glass, and simplicity of lines in cabinets.
- Brought three-dimensional quality to wall surfaces with artisanal faux painting, rice paper wall treatment, and hand-carved chair rail.
