Excited about my new Brookside Project and AirBNB conversion. Located in Portola Valley surrounded by soaring redwoods, this guest house will provide calm and serenity as well as convenient proximity to Stanford and Silicon Valley. When the project is completed, guests from all over the world will want to stay…
A GARAGE DOOR like this will add texture and a modern element to the facade..
FOLDING GLASS WALLS like these, to open the space up to an indoor/outdoor flow…
A LIVING ROOM SOFA like this one from Lillian August in a larger size (115 in) that will fill the length of the living room..
A MEDIA CONSOLE like this one from Horchow that will upgrade our family room. The challenge is finding one where you can use the remote control with the doors closed..
ART for the many vacant wall spaces, including the dining room, stairwell, upstairs hall, and family room. Michael Cutlip, a San Francisco artist whose work I love and aspire to collect some day. The piece below called PETALS has a spot reserved in the dining room..
A STAIR RUNNER that adds texture and warmth to the cool blonde wood of our staircase. LOVE the geometric pattern of this runner from David Hicks!
The MASTER BEDROOM WALK-IN CLOSET has to be super efficient because the space is small, it’s more like a maxi reach in closet..this one’s gonna be a challenge!
MASTER BEDROOM CLOSET DOORS like these to replace the original sliding doors, giving me easier access to everything!
Modern LANDSCAPING that incorporates arid and easy to maintain planting, as well as cable fencing which ties into the upstairs deck and interior stairway..
KITCHEN EXPANSION that opens up a kitchen wall and the living room wall into the side courtyard, creating an the indoor/outdoor flow..
Smaller scale SWIMMING POOL that works in our backyard the shape of a pizza slice..
And a MUD ROOM!
These are two I like for the storage and style..
I love the idea of making a RENTAL your own with bold paint and custom fixtures. This designer nailed it with his Pacific Heights flat…brilliant. He’s also written a book called COOL DESIGNS FOR SMALL SPACES.
