This 1100 SF space is a reinvention of an early 1960s unit in one of two semi-circular apartment towers near San Francisco’s Aquatic Park. The existing design ignored the sweeping views and featured the same humdrum features one might have found in a mid-range suburban development from 40 years ago. The clients who bought the unit wanted to transform the apartment into a pied a terre with the feel of a high-end hotel getaway: sleek, exciting, sexy. The apartment would serve as a theater, revealing the spectacular sights of the San Francisco Bay.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
White it outMost of us are inclined to pair all-white walls and flooring with richly coloured linens and bold prints. While such a contrast most definitely works, another option is to saturate a room in the palest shades and go all out on pure white bedding.Layer with different textures and tones if you want to introduce just a hint of contrast – the quilting in this room adds depth – but embrace the whiteness for a seriously serene look.
What Houzzers are commenting on:
Space, Line, and Texture: there’s a lot of space in this room due to the paint illusion, only one solid color which is white. There’s horizontal and diagonal lines on the mattress and the bed cover. Also there’s a lot of texture in the room, on the mattress, headboard, the plant, and the pillowcases.
