An Art-Inspired Bachelorette Pad

Un-partnered people are having a major design moment right now, starting with this art inspired bachelorette pad. We recently shared this Austin jewel box of a bachelor pad. It’s exciting to see how people decorate when they only have their preferences to manage. This Hayes Valley Edwardian designed by Bay Area interior designer Anja Michals marries neutral materials and metallic finishes with an art-inspired palette.

The Color Palette

It’s no secret that a San Francisco Victorian always reigns queen in my heart. Anja Michals’ truly made this space shine for her client in such a personal way. With architectural details as intricate as an Edwardian, finding an anchoring piece for the space is key. Michals’ found inspiration in the original artwork by Kiki Slaughter hanging in the living room. Composed of a deep emerald, inky blacks, soft blushes, and streaks of marigold, Anja carried the color palette throughout every room in home.

In the primary bedroom, they leaned into the mood, using JH Wall Paints Lime Wall Paint 149. This offered a less expensive, faster alternative to traditional plaster. The lime wall paint adds texture and dimension to the space. The deep moody green acts as the perfect backdrop to the natural oak and Crypton upholstered bed. A similar emerald green was carried into every room in the house, from the vintage arm chairs to the bathroom millwork.

I love how Anja kept nearly all the furnishings totally neutral. However, when paired with colorful walls and accessories, the result still feels daring.

The Patterns

Pattern is represented in an atypical way throughout this project. Instead of focusing on bold patterns (with the exception of the amazing Zak + Fox wallpaper in the bathroom), Michals leaned into texture. Vintage rugs, geometric tonal pillows, and primely patterned textiles add so much visual interest to the space.

Carefully curated layers of patterned textiles make this bachelorette pad feel inviting. Timeless pieces that transition eras form a foundation for color. All inspired by the homeowners personal art collection. Let this home tour be a lesson in mastering thematic design, in an entirely unassuming way.
