Designer Stephen Shubel took this early-20th century Edwardian home in Presidio Heights, omitted all the stuffiness, then infused the space with bright, glorious color. The result is a stunner that's both classic and colorful... Shubel designed the house for (and with the help of) his former personal assistant, and it definitely feels like less of a "designer house" and more of a collaborative effort (with really fabulous results). We love the use of pink in the living room to counteract the gray, foggy light of north-facing windows in SF - something to keep in mind if you're considering painting. You can find the article (and lots more pictures) here.
