Two Design Ideas from Envelope A+D

Local architecture and design firm Envelop A+D's projects always leave us buzzing with interest, and this San Francisco home on Washington Street is no exception. The house's traditional exterior gives way to a dramatically airy space indoors, creating a clean backdrop for the family's extensive art collection. Two aspects of the minimalist interior immediately caught our eye - one being the glass encased shelving shown above...

We like that it delineates the library/study from the living area, but maintains the sense of openness prevalent throughout the rest of the home.

The second design element we liked were the home's brightly painted closets. Yes, it's not exactly a new idea, but when paired with all white walls they add such a pop of interest (even the ever-so-subtle pink one below), that we had to share. You can see more images of this home and many more Envelope A+D projects at the firm's website.
