A Peek into Katherine Ringling North's Home

What type of home would you expect a Ringling (yes, as in the circus) family member to inhabit? We were surprised by what we found when we saw interior designer Katherine North's two bedroom Russian Hill flat...

Despite North's connection to circus life (including a month spent traveling with and managing the business), her home is remarkably low key, with memorabilia from her family's storied past found in small accents, like a cluster of black and white photos and a clock belonging to her grandfather. We like the subtle touch and thoughtfully collected items from North's past, though we must admit it wasn't quite what we were expecting. Read the SF Examiner article and see more photos here.
