Clayton Street: A Modern Victorian Renovation

Desire to Inspire

You may remember Casper and Lexie Mork-Ulnes’ home from Sarah’s post in 2008. It was featured in the New York Times, and generated quite a bit of reaction regarding its renovation.

Many Apartment Therapy commenters were concerned about the loss of Victorian details in this project. While others, familiar with the style and the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco, applauded the owners’ ability to create a bright, updated space out a dark, dingy and haphazardly-designed boarding house.

What I love about this recent Desire to Inspire post is that it allows us to see even more of the home and that it does a better job of highlighting the historical features that the couple incorporated into their renovation. Say what you will, but I think that the overall result is an amazing, eclectic space - full of life, humor and thoughtful detail. (Love the trumpet light fixture over the bar!)

What do you think? Do these new images change your feelings on the renovation at all? (Psst…San Francisco residents – if you’re in the market, it’s currently for sale!)
