This newly-married tech couple from the South Bay enlisted Interior Design Fair’s help to transform their San Francisco condo into a comfortable urban getaway. They combine his love of soothing, modern lines with her love of vibrant hues and playful textiles. Bold photography highlights a sleek, white desk area.
This guest bedroom is filled with charm, with a pink striped bedspread, blue and gray textile accent pillows, modern sunny yellow side tables with contemporary reading lamps, and a modern photography wall art.
Open floor next to the shuffleboard set up shows off the cobblestone look and red-brown coloring of the floor. A trio of black and white photography with large white space gives a modern look to decorate the wall. A black ceiling adds texture and creates a shadow finish perfect for an entertainment room.
The living room is large enough to fit a full dining area that seats eight. On the wall, an image of young dancers from Batoto Yetu, taken by French photographer, Patrick Demarchelier is the perfect accent piece on the wall. The Drop dining chairs by Fritz Hansen continue the room’s dichotomy between modern and traditional aesthetics and provide wonderful contrast to the ornamentation in the doorway.
The beauty of Quartz goes way beyond its good looks. You can find it in array of colors and it’s more durable and stain resistant than porous marble and granite which can absorb stains very quickly. This quartz tub surround will hold up well to daily use and makes a bold statement in a Mediterranean inspired blue.
White-washed wood tile feels light underfoot and keeps the space from feeling too dark and cave like. The custom herringbone tile found behind the sink is also used around the bath for a pop of texture without feeling busy or overwhelming.
Using wood slats as a wall on the porch adds a modern texture and provides a natural surface for plants and vines to climb. Creating a natural privacy wall with potted plants is a simple, sleek addition to a front porch that can grow with the home over time.
The location of the dining room works well with the rest of the home’s modern floor plan. “I like that it’s just steps away from the butler’s pantry that leads straight to the kitchen,” says project manager Scott Branscom.
Sunsets are sweeter from the back deck of this reimagined 1970’s home. Modern upgrades enhance the home’s architectural angles and additional outdoor seating from the pergola dining area to the covered outdoor kitchen make it easy to entertain and enjoy the beauty of the Northwest year round.
Matching metal and wood chairs line the outdoor bar to provide ample seating for an alfresco breakfast or end-of-the-day cocktail. Placing the outdoor bar under the covered area of the deck maximizes when the space can be used even if it’s raining or snowing.
