To compliment an eclectic collection of art, books, sculpture and photography, a free-hand design approach is utilized. A contemporary sofa with back legs different from its front legs wears a traditional Napoleon Bee fabric. A local artist sculpts an organic iron table base. The light fixture is a custom design to enhance the original ceiling medallion. An awkward window is adapted into the room via a generous window treatment.

San Francisco
Victorian Railroad Flat

Completely restored and remodeled, this 1860’s vintage railroad flat attains a second life with functional lighting, added storage and a quirky marriage of existing traditional furnishings with new contemporary pieces.
The old built-in china cabinet is given a facelift with a new upper portion installed with glass shelves, frameless glass doors and hidden halogen lighting. A playful ceiling fixture shows the lightheartedness of the owner and supplemental halogen lighting accents art throughout.

To enhance a curved ceiling and make a narrow hall appear larger, a suspended low-voltage halogen system is used. Soft pools of light reflect off the ceiling and each photograph is individually highlighted.

The new kitchen offers twice the counter space as the old, plus better functional use of the space and a cleaner and brighter look, while managing to keep the rich colors.
