Baron + Baron Design: Interiors.Staging.Construction
Our client downsized from a large Mill Valley Lodge home to a lovely golf course setting where they play golf 360 days a year (no kidding!) We created a beautiful color palette and mixed in unique Asian pieces from the owners collection. We designed custom rugs through Richard Habib in S F, and sourced large scale family room furniture and special art work handpicked by the clients. We softened the windows and focused the views with beautiful, simple shades and drapery panels set on dark iron rods from Trend Drapery in San Rafael, CA. We redesigned the fireplace surround in the Family Room after seeing artist, Ellen Blakeley's, work in a SF Chronicle Home Design article. Ellen created a custom glass mosaic surround, all in one piece, studded with gorgeous gold, copper and bronze glass to complement the colors in the family room. We then created a colorful home office to showcase the owners collection of antique toys from his boyhood and tinted photographs of their favorite Lake Tahoe ski runs. Finally, we designed a serene, simple and elegant master bedroom suite with tailored velvet damask fabric, clean lined furniture and unique contemporary art framed by Chandler Fine Art in S.F. Our final touches have been custom lighting from Policelli, S.F. in both the Dining and Kitchen island areas and the acquisition of several lovely glass, alabaster and metal accent pieces from Gumps in San Francisco.
