This design refresh adds space and style to a cozy San Francisco home. Notes of color and handicraft enliven the classic canvas of white walls for a minimalist-leaning family. The unfinished basement becomes a cool teenage hang-out space that doubles as guest quarters. A new full bathroom clad in celadon zellige tile and a proper laundry room swathed in custom cherry-print wallpaper also add functionality and fun. New paint, finishes, and light fixtures weave throughout the rest of the abode. A mix of vintage accessories, warm woods and sophisticated textures ground the design with a sense of authenticity.
What results is a home that makes effective use of its urban footprint, with a fresh design palette that stays true to the family’s personality and home’s history.
