San Francisco based interior designer, Catherine Kwong designed an elegant, yet edgy living room for the 2013 San Francisco Decorator Showcase. While researching for a client, Kwong came across photos of Mick and Bianca Jagger in the 1970’s – they were young and wild. The iconic rock royalty couple inspired the living room’s design for the Showcase.
However, it’s the hand-painted floor takes center stage. Created by Stancil Studios, the free-spirited pattern was inspired by the paintings of Cy Twombly. It’s quite the juxtaposition to the ornate ceiling, marble fireplace and traditional architecture.
A pair of vintage fringe light fixtures grace the floors and flanked the stately marble fireplace. They added a wonder soft, feminine touch.
The vintage lucite candle stick stood out because I recently saw a similar pair at an estate sale.
In case you missed it, here’s Catherine Kwong’s “Her Office” she designed for last year’s San Francisco Decorator Showcase.
