What happens when your furnishings no longer fit your home or its environment? This was the dilemma faced by a woman who purchased an 1875 cottage near Fillmore Street.
The interior structure and paint were fine, but the furniture reflected the owner’s previous Southern California house – a beachside style unsuited to a classic Victorian in a vibrant city. Our mission was to help her discover and embrace a design aesthetic that matched her new lifestyle and suited the building’s architecture.
We worked with the owner to select new furnishings for the living, family, and dining rooms. Our goal was for the spaces to feel timeless, so we avoided design trends. Muted colors and soft textures create a sense of easy comfort and openness.
Each piece fits the way she lives today. A luxurious lounge overlooks the garden for her morning coffee. Cozy, pillow-lined sofas and chairs make family and friends feel welcome. A custom-designed credenza of hand-hammered bronze and shell harkens back to the sea.
The owner loves the look and her new urban neighborhood – and says they both feel like home.
