Project Description

Tasteful and Timeless Piedmont Family Home

This historic Craftsman home built in 1911 was reimagined with modern elements to balance old with new. Contractors Kristofer Brekke and Mark Bohon were instrumental in bringing our ideas to fruition all the while caring for and preserving the historical architecture. Each generously proportioned room had unique character, and was furnished to match the personality and functionality of the space.

In the kitchen, there are zones for everything: counter sitting, making coffee, preparing food, lounging around, even a little desk and chair for homework or checking the mail. The original ceiling art in the dining room was preserved, its colors drawn out and featured throughout the room as evident in the high-gloss fuchsia CEH credenza. The homeowners’ own art, including metal leaves and foo dogs, added a bit of kitsch and a personal touch.

Beautiful yet approachable, grand yet welcoming, warm yet elegant, a perfect harmony was achieved in this home. When the fireplace comes on, it becomes a hearth inspiring visitors to linger, to connect, to be together in a sense of timelessness… exactly what this family had hoped for. 

This project was featured in San Francisco Magazine in March 2022. See the feature here.
