Moody Mission Victorian
In the years since his move to San Francisco, our client had launched a successful career in sales and cultivated an equally engaging social circle. He had even found the time to open a candy store with his sister, down in Los Angeles. All that was missing was a home he could see himself living in long term. His search brought him to a stately Queen Anne at the edge of the Mission with Victorian-meets-modern details throughout, plentiful guest rooms and multiple, entertaining-friendly living areas. After purchasing the home, he reached out to us for help extending his edgy personal style throughout the space. We introduced a mix of elevated-yet-comfortable furnishings, dramatic, patterned wall coverings, and moody details. In the living room, a charcoal sofa with modern lines is grounded by a pair of oak and brass coffee tables. Green velvet side chairs flank a wide bay window, drawing on tones in the cheeky photograph mounted above the sofa. The room’s rich jewel tones are echoed in the dining room with a loose, brushstroke-patterned wallpaper and a striking teal overdyed rug, while the powder room boasts a moody, dark floral wallpaper. Just down the hall, we transformed the home office with a deep shade of green, and a wall of custom shelving designed to house our client’s favorite novels. On the uppermost floor, a converted attic with a kitchen area and deck space serves as the perfect spot to entertain large groups of friends. Our client wanted this space to feel less formal than other areas of the home, so we sourced comfortable, relaxed furniture like the plush linen sectional. Outside on the deck, we designed a built-in bench for additional seating and installed overhead heating to make this an inviting San Francisco space to gather.
