Built in 1904 A two family, historical house in Buena Vista Park, San Francisco. Complete renovation of the two interior flats, as well as exterior maintenance up and fresh paint makes this home feel new, but with lovely historic details.
Exterior before and after The exterior of the house has been re-painted to a light blue that brings out the existing gold trim.
Blue Front Door A deep blue front door creates an inviting entrance.
Bright New Foyer Changing the floors and painting the dark wood on the walls and banister creates a much brighter foyer.
Foyer from the Stairs Now the foyer shines with light streaming in from the front doors. This fresh, light filled entry is a joy to walk through, and feels much larger with the new color scheme.
Downstairs Kitchen The downstairs has a full flat with a small kitchen. Now with the white cabinets in the renovated kitchen layout, it feels much bigger.
Downstairs Kitchen After The downstairs kitchen, opened up by rearranging the floor plan, feels worlds larger.
New French Doors The downstairs kitchen french doors open onto the small back deck. Much better than the old sliding door that was there before.
Downstairs Bathroom The downstairs bathroom with new tile and full tub.
Original Wood Detail The original beams in the ceiling and the original fireplace have such beautiful rich wood, painting the walls around them a bright white accentuates their deep colors.
Stairway to Master Flat As you walk up the stairs, the area opens up to the 2nd floor Master flat, with an open kitchen and living room.
Kitchen and Dining Room The large open kitchen and dining areas are bright and airy with their high ceiling and natural light.
Upstairs Kitchen Changing the kitchen layout and taking out some walls really opened up the kitchen to a much more inviting space.
Opened Up Space Taking out the original wall that cut this room in two, gives a now wonderful line of sight to the windows and the amazing view.
Original Medallions and New Fixtures Keeping the original details of the house and bringing in a modern flair, makes the interior spaces fun and interesting. The medallions on the ceiling were kept, and new light fixtures brought in.
Upstairs Bathroom and Vintage Fixtures The bathroom on this floor had some fun vintage elements that we wanted to keep and celebrate. Sourcing vintage inspired tile and fixtures the tub and sink now are the main interesting elements.
Children's Bedrooms The children's bedrooms on this floor follow the same aesthetic of the rest of the house, keeping the original medallions over the new modern light fixtures, the fresh paint and the dark floors.
Porthole in the Closet The closet to the children's bedroom is over the entry stairway. We added a fun ship's porthole for the children to look though.
Jillian Checks the Porthole The porthole is a large brass real porthole from a ship!
Porthole from the Entry Stairs The porthole looks out over the entry stairs, making some interesting wall art as well.
Master Bedroom On the top floor, the master bedroom caries the style of the rest of the house with its dark stained floors, white walls and mix of modern and vintage elements.
Master Bath The master bath was converted into a full bath with a tub, and brightened with the new tile.
Open Studio The master floor has a large open studio room, now with the ceiling heightened and the floor extended feels even more open and airy.
Window Area At the far side of the studio, floor to ceiling windows create a beautiful area to look at the view.
Acrylic Window Screens Because the windows go to the floor, and there are small children in the house, we added acrylic screens with a decorative carving for safety.
Master Study The master study off of the main room on the top master floor has beautiful views, and is freshened by the new paint and darkened floors. The original fixtures and wood paneling remain.
