Sunday's Fall Home Design Magazine offered up four articles by Chronicle design editor Zahid Sardar. Bliss.
Be sure to check out all the photos.
Art on the Vine: Gallery setting in a guest cottage: A St. Helena guest cottage has a traditional look outside, but a modern feel inside -- complete with lots of art, a Le Corbusier table, and pieces from Crate and Barrel, West Elm, eBay, and a Paris flea market
Take Two: A humdrum elevator vestibule becomes an elegant space-saving wine cabinet in a Nob Hill condo:
Interior designer Michael Merrill created "something beautiful with a unique purpose" for a wine- and liquor-collecting couple
Asia Minor: At the St. Regis, a clear view of the Pacific:
A high-rise with 180-degree views of the Bay has "a vaguely Asian design, but one mixed with antiques from Ed Hardy and furniture by Saarinen, Eames and other modernist designers"
This Small House: A cottage setting makes room for imaginative design:
A Noe Valley cottage (formerly a barn with a Victorian facade) became a comfortable family home that uses subterranean space, outdoor rooms, and lots of light. (We're not sure if we'd call 1,600 square feet small, but hey, we're still happy)
