Kimberley Austin's Home: Local Design on Potrero Hill

We always look forward to the "sneak peeks" of designers' homes on Design*Sponge, but it's especially exciting when they feature San Franciscans. Recently, the blog showcased photographer Kimberley Austin's lovely light-drenched house on Potrero Hill, one of the city's sunniest neighborhoods. Her rooms are so inspiring in their spare, simple design, capitalizing on the home's natural flow of light and space. Plus, she uses some of our most beloved local resources! Find out which ones after the jump...

Alameda Flea Market. Kimberley discovered these dining chairs at the flea market and had them powder-coated by West Coast Powder Coating. What a find!

Grenouille. Next time you're down in SOMA, stop by this antiques shop, a great source for French country furnishings. Kimberley's beautiful farmhouse table and daybed both came from Grenouille (at 340 Bryant Street in San Francisco).

McRoskey Matresses. This company has been making mattresses in San Francisco for over a hundred years. It's still owned by the McRoskey family, and the mattresses are still hand-crafted (and incredibly comfortable). (Also check out the amazing hospital bed, another choice salvage find!)


Kimberley's home
is filled with more work from local artists and artisans, so go see the whole sneak peak on Design*Sponge!

You can also have a look at Kimberley's own beautiful artwork on her site.
