BAMO’s renovation of this San Francisco Victorian reflects the client’s desire for easy entertainment, while showcasing her personality through bold art and furniture, and treasured finds. A high-low approach, mixing catalog with investment pieces, was established to give an authentic, eclectic, and casual feel. Getting the client to step “outside the box” became an exciting challenge. Her first reaction to the yellow B&B sofa was an adverse “that’s so much color!” But after exploring how the vibrant hue would be visible through the long corridor, drawing you through the house, a bold streak of exploration was born. Art curation was another place the client agreed to have fun. “Levity” was the directive, with selections being touchable, verging on humorous. She fell in love with the works of Tracy Kendall, originally exposed to the “Jigsaw” puzzle-inspired piece but opting for the “Sequins” version with its three-dimensional movement. The Living Room was spatially complicated, with a large entry corner to fill. BAMO’s discovery of the duo artists “Chiaozza”, introduced a family of playful papier-mâché sculptures to the mix. In the Family Room, YoY’s Canvas Armchair is always a conversation starter. The Primary Bedroom entry needed to keep in balance with the main floor. With her quirky smile and elegant costume, the Mineheart “Maria” cabinet was placed front and center welcoming the client back to their personal space. Moments of excitement are balanced with calm, reflecting their laid-back style. Entertaining is made easy with the open Kitchen/Family Room layout, accentuated by the client’s Knoll Saarinen table and rawhide pieces. The Primary Bedroom’s dreamy vibe is balanced by the sleek headboard, modern dresser, and traditionally-inspired yet contemporary Cowtan & Tout drapery. The Living Room became a favorite place to relax, with a cozy Liz Collins custom potholder rug underfoot. Clipper was completed July 2016.
