With no room for a table in her own small kitchen, interior designer Melanie Coddington installed a pine slab counter in an adjacent alcove. Bright orange barstools combine beautifully with the wood of the counter and frame of the large wall mirror.
The San Francisco Decorator Showhouse 2014 guest bedroom mixes museum-quality case goods that are perfectly at home in a stately historic room. Designer Melanie Coddington added luxurious designer details, such as two-toned window treatments, a sumptuous blue bed, and a large floral area rug that ties the entire space together.
To make this guest bedroom feel a little more like home, designers added a sitting room to the space. This space features a custom sofa with scalloped nailhead detail and a custom ottoman, both by Coddington Design, a cream leather, vintage Henredon can chair, wallpaper by Osborne and Little and a wool rug.
The bed in the guest bedroom features a custom, 1940's French-inspired bed frame that is upholstered in luxurious mohair. The look is complemented by the mid-century gilded polka dot lamps, the silk area rug and the relaxed Roman shades with the patterned panel on the inside.
A vibrant wall of orange cabinets and refrigerator doors is a bold pop of color in this white, traditional kitchen. Wrought iron pendant lights and a dark wood island are traditional touches that create an elegant vibe.
Vibrant green wallpaper with a funky, graphic pattern creates a fun vibe in this traditional powder room. An ornate brass mirror is flanked by two matching wall lights adding a decadent touch of elegance.
Homeowners wanted to keep the feeling of the historic home, but also wanted to add a modern style, so designers took a traditional, custom, French curve inspired bed and made it more modern by upholstering it with mohair. They paired it with unique, traditional nightstands and gilded polka dot, midcentury table lamps to modernize the traditional pieces.
