The kitchen was the main focus for this loft in the architecturally iconic building at 855 Folsom St. Keeping it simple and focusing on color and materials helped to create a fun, timeless, and exciting palette. The warmth of coral Heath tile and custom walnut planter boxes on the top of the pony wall above contrast the exposed concrete and metal. The paintings are by Ron Scharfe.
We kept the elements clean, minimal and spare to highlight the interior architecture of this modern new home, where a lovely play of light radiates throughout each room. We focused on pops of rich color and the simplicity of the materials themselves. The entry bench, made of a laminated composite of five different solid woods, then hand carved to have a "ripple" effect, is a juxtaposition of the natural and built environment, as is the River wallcovering by New Zealand designer Emma Hayes in the master bedroom, where we wanted to soften the lines and foster a feeling of peace and serenity. The client's new-found passion for modern furniture is apparent, paying tribute to everything from Bauhaus classics to new icons, and reflects the fun personality of this young family's new home.
A beautiful and historical home in Pacific Heights was due for an updated master bathroom. We completely revamped the large and airy space and created a serene, modern oasis for our client who dreamed of long, relaxing baths in a spa-like setting. We kept the palette warm and added earthy touches like the client's wall hanging and an acacia trunk to add a true California vibe.

A fun and unique space was created for a couple who love film, music, art and entertaining. We started from the center of the space, creating a dining lounge to tempt guests, and let the design radiate out. Using mixed metals, warm woods, and vibrant jewel tones, the outcome is whimsical, moody, and eclectic.
A contemporary home on Potrero Ave was transformed into a sophisticated family space by adding stunning wall coverings, dynamic paint colors, modern furniture, and new lighting. It became a comfortable place for a family with young twins to grow, play and entertain.
We let the unique fabric designs of these clients inspire the overall aesthetic of their flat. We added a second bathroom and cleverly placed closets under the stairs to the upper unit to give them more storage and custom designed an upholstered bench to fit into the front bay windows. Funky patterns, textures, rich colors and lots of mid-century charm reflect their young and artsy personalities.
A mid-century home in the Oakland Hills was in need of an update. The clients wanted a simple, modern and clean design that felt colorful and warm without being too loud. The style remained true to the house, but we added Heath tile, cork flooring and new appliances to create a pared down, but strong aesthetic to suit the needs of a busy young family.
A condo near the park was begging for a kitchen update. We increased the footprint by adding a tail end to the straight run of cabinets, increasing the size and storage for our client. Being a professional baker and owner of Salty Sweet, a San Francisco cookie company that makes the best cookies this side of the Rio Grande, she needed a kitchen suited to her everyday needs, and one that was also fun, pretty. and whimsical.
