Rich Textiles in Russian Hill

Professional Project

Project by: Nina Jizhar
Location: San Francisco, California

Designer Nina says: This San Francisco Apartment is in a beautiful 1929 building in Russian Hill with amazing views of the Bay and Golden Gate bridge. Since the homeowner moved to San Francisco with virtually nothing, it's just a shell of what it could become. He wants the space that is comfortable, inviting, and sophisticated.

The apartment also features great architecture detail such as crown molding and archway. The living room is fairly large and we created a seating arrangement that is intimate and cozy. Having a tufted chaise in front of the window serves as reading nook as well as additional seating for guests when entertaining or just simply to enjoy the view with a cup of coffee.

We kept the wall color warm and neutral. Introducing Aubergine and Blues as accent colors brings adequate pops of colors in the space. Rich textures found in the African Juju hat and leather strips of patchwork area rug in bedroom as well as subtle pattern in artwork, throw pillows and living room area rug creates a beautifully balanced, well collected space yet edgy and timeless.
