It's finally ready! The much-delayed Sunset Idea House had a soft opening last Friday, and we were able to tour the space earlier this week. The green abode, located in San Francisco's Mission District, is chock-full of cool products and materials. We especially like the wall in the study/craft room that's made of scraps of walnut wood. In case you're wondering about some of the products shown in the photo above: The ceiling-mounted task lamp is Artemide's "Tolomeo"; the metal stool is DWR's "Marais" in vermillion (a similar stool can be found at NapaStyle); the table is Blu Dot's "Strut" in dark olive; the Benjamin Moore low-VOC paint color is avocado; and the concrete floor tiles in the adjacent children's bedroom are Ann Sacks/Angela Adams "Argyle" and "Manfred" patterns.
The Sunset Idea House is open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through December 16, 9am-4pm; and January 4-27, 2008. (Note: The house will be closed the weekends of December 21 and 28.)
