When Melanie first met the homeowners in the spring of 2019, they needed help selecting their paint colors and furnishing a few key rooms with the intention of redesigning other spaces down the line. Since that first meeting, their family has grown with the addition of a dog followed by a baby. As a result, the project’s scope has naturally evolved along the way. Four years later, Melanie has now redesigned the interior of their home from top to bottom.
The furnishings throughout the home are a timeless mix of modern and classic design elements that complement the traditional architecture of their circa 1913 San Fransisco home. Melanie incorporated thoughtful touches in the space to reflect the client’s love for spending time outdoors, infusing playful prints in various rooms.
In the dining room, a botanical wallpaper adds interest and whimsy, wrapping around the ceiling to create a visual connection with nature. The guest bath’s flora and fauna pattern and stunning tree-patterned paper in the nursery continue the outside-in theme.
Nature-Inspired Color Palette
While the material palette in this home feels pared down and calming, the selections made are still energizing and upbeat for this young family. Drawing from the art pieces collected by the homeowners over the years, Melanie layered earthy neutrals with unexpected jewel tones to create a vibrant palette from room to room. In the kitchen, creamy white cabinetry and a subtly patterned backsplash allow bold brass pendants, a vintage red floor runner, and inky navy blue barstools to stand out.
A focus on space and function is vital in cities like San Francisco, so Melanie was sure to design the home with durable fabrics and helpful extras. A pull-out sofa in the office transitions into a bed to host friends and family, and vibrantly patterned rugs help conceal any messes from day-to-day life in their active household. While living in the city comes with its sacrifices of space, the clients have expressed that they love their home too much to leave for a larger space in the surrounding Bay Area.
