Even though the 2013 San Francisco Decorator Showcase has come to a close, I wanted to share images a space I really enjoyed touring. The Salon designed by Matthew Leverone of Leverone Design is set just across from the Living Room on the mansion’s first floor. Initially I wasn’t sure how I felt about the design. The large pine trees caught me off guard. Growing up in the Sierra Mountains of Lake Tahoe it would have never occurred to anyone to bring a pine tree inside (unless of course it was Christmas!). But, it works here.
In addition to the non-traditional saplings, Leverone adds modern geometric and exotic elements to the otherwise classical, opulent gathering place. Some of my favorite details include the vintage hand-knotted Moroccan rug, chrome & hide chair and rich velvet sofa & pillows.
I loved the stately marble fireplace stuffed with logs and the mirror layered with contemporary art. Leverone packs a lot into this well designed, intimate space.
