San Francisco Decorator Showcase :: Kitchen & Family Room

The first thing to catch my eye in the kitchen of this year’s San Francisco Decorator Showcase by Navarra Design was the traditional La Cornue range and hood in glossy chocolate with brass detailing. (swoon) It was coupled with a contemporary verre églomisé backsplash (gilded glass) featuring dandelions. It’s a magical combo. Navarra keeps the inset cabinetry clean in a crisp white, yet adds a contrasting cerused oak island. The kitchen space is unified with striking calacatta marble countertops. The metal and wood bar counter is an unexpected element placed perpendicular to the island and is the perfect spot for the homeowner’s kids. The high lacquer ceiling in teal blue was a wonderful way to incorporate a burst of color and bring the kitchen and family room together. The family room’s breakfast nook is set in the window and delivers breathtaking views of the San Francisco Bay. (it’s lovely)

Vintage Chic Home Office Design

As a designer I’m always seeking out chic vintage furnishings and home decor. My go to destinations include flea markets, estate sales and craigslist. However, the process of scouring through items can be time consuming, hit or miss and downright frustrating (is it the real deal? is the seller trustworthy?).  And of course this is simply the buying side, not the selling side of vintage furnishings! But fortunately there is now Chairish, an online marketplace where design lovers can exchange gently used, pre-owned furniture and decor directly with one another. They make the whole buying, selling and shipping process a breeze. In addition, the experts at Chairish hand-select and curate the collections of items on the site, so you know you’re getting quality vintage and designer decor that is accurately represented. Love!

The folks at Chairish asked me to select a favorite rug from various styles that were provided and then create a styleboard designed around that pattern and color scheme using furnishings from their site. I selected a beautiful grass green Turkish rug as the starting point for a vintage chic home office design. The process of sourcing and searching for items on Chairish was fast and easy. I could even keep track of my favorites along the way! The result is fresh, airy and of course chic.

Design Crush :: Velvet Sofas

design crush // velvet sofas #interiors #blue

As the cooler weather roles in I find myself gravitating to certain textiles. One in particular is velvet. Love this soft, textured fabric on sofas in particular. I’ve pulled a few of my favorite interiors featuring velvet sofas and as you will see the textile look great in just about any color and style.

Known for mixing modern and vintage elements, Catherine Kwong selects a sofa in a deep marine blue velvet for urban living room. The tufting is beautifully executed and allows the velvet to shimmer. If you like this look, check out West Elm’s Chester Sofa (disclosure: affiliate link) in performance velvet.
