Meet Chula and Rio, the official greeters at Heather and Dave's colorful Bernal Heights home. These affectionate pooches set the tone for this warm and inviting house and its tapestry of color, pattern and texture. Everywhere you turn you'll find bold combinations of pieces from different eras and origins, creating a completely original feel.
- • German Shepherd chandelier from Gypsy Honeymoon on Valencia Street. They have beautiful treasures and this one I saw in the window — it was a "how much is that doggie in the window" moment!'
- • My big yellow curtains! I saw them done at the Paris boutique for Dries Van Noten. At the boutique they were done in a gorgeous heavy silk in the same yellow. I make all my own curtains and couldn't shell out for the heavy silk, so I went to discount fabrics on Mission Street and found the same color in a cotton twill. Not quite as glamorous as the silk, but it is the same effect.
- • Brutalist Chandelier from Dog Fork on Potrero in SF. They have the BEST lighting. New, old, and they'll make or customize anything. And the African wax cloth curtains. Fabric is from Britex — they have a great selection of these fabrics.
- • The wallpaper, and my old black Wolf Stove. A neighbor was redoing her kitchen and didn't want it any more — score!
- • So stoked with the newly papered guest bath! We used the Taschen book Albertas Seba Cabinet of Curiosities. So much fun to collage the different pieces in and make narratives between the animals. Then we had a special "Sputnik" sconce made at Dogfork to complete it. To be honest, I saw a similar bathroom in Elle Decor which had been done by a well known designer (can't remember the name) and adapted it to my tiny little powder room.
