If you’re going to San Francisco

Posted on Tue, 12 May 2020 by midcenturyjo

Warm and sophisticated with a tight colour palette of greens, tan and cream with pops of dramatic black this San Francisco house has ample entertaining spaces with low slung furniture to accentuate rather than block the view.  After all if your Russian Hill home looks out to Alcatraz Island then it’s always going to be about the view.

I was going to say the same, Jo, it is all about that view- and they did a fantastic job with the interiors. Simple, elegant- but I would spend most of my time on that banquette! What a home to be stuck-in-place in!

And thanks, now I have that song in my head 🙂

Anne says:

The house is stunning and the colours are considered and soothingly pleasant. I just can’t fathom the l-shaped lounge across the view.

Blanders says:

The light fittings are uniformly beautiful but terrible. The dining area lamp throws light everywhere EXCEPT onto the table, while the pendant over the kitchen island throws light off the end rather than onto the sink. And the casual dining banquet doesn’t have any light at all.

Kudos for the aesthetics, but someone needs to have FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION shouted at them for a few hours.
