Heritage chic | San Francisco CA

At the start of 2022, I was hired to design new bathrooms- one was an awkwardly laid out primary and the other didn't exist yet. Needed to create the second bath for their daughters was a bit of a puzzle. Luckily, I was able to steal some unused space from the primary and combine it was dead end hall-- victorians are weird like that.  The results were spectacular. Two light filled. full bathrooms that were able to keep original elements and add new unique ones to create a top floor as special as the whole house.

 

Not even a year later,  I got a call about their first floor project. I was enthusiastic to continue our partnership and take on their kitchen, laundry room and powder bath.  My clients were keen on a kitchen design that honored the historical style of the residence but updating function to modern conveniences. With a meticulous approach to design, we sought to seamlessly blend modern functionality with timeless aesthetics, ensuring that the kitchen not only met contemporary needs but also paid homage to the distinctive charm and character of the home's historical era. Ensuring that the design and flow of the space cultivated an environment conducive to my clients love of baking, it was a top priority to create a space where she could continue to make new memories cooking alongside her family. Embracing the challenge of infusing contemporary elements while respecting the historical context added a layer of creativity and satisfaction in seeing the designs come to life. 

After a year designing, planning and executing, the first floor was completed in right before Thanksgiving 2023.
