Nik & John
San Francisco, California
Our home is a one bedroom rented apartment. We have a fairly strict landlord who doesn't want us to make improvements by ourselves so we are limited with what we can do. No painting, no changing floors without his approval. Our style is mid-century but mostly California modern.
We end up accessorizing a lot using various vintage pieces throughout the apartment. We've built up (mostly John) quite a collection of vintage items ranging from a Greta Grossman desk, coffee table and a few of her lamps. We also have vintage George Nelson daybed, jewelry chest and chandelier as well as a couple of vintage Eames ESU's where we display some of John's pottery and sculpture collection. Since we cannot paint the walls, we have a rotating collection of vintage fabric panels by Evelyn Ackerman and Barney Reid. We are blessed to have a second floor apartment so we get lots of sunlight in all of the rooms. We also have a great deck off of our bedroom where we can BBQ and entertain friends on nice non-foggy San Francisco days.
Thanks, Nik & John!
