Although the luxury two bedroom apartment at the Four Seasons Residences in San Francisco included all the services and amenities of the famous hotel, the space felt less like a home than more like a hotel. It needed that extra layer to give it personality and warmth.
Decor Aid rippled from the client’s colorful art collection, pulling color and texture out of the paintings. In the living room, custom pillows in yellows, purples, and burnt orange brought the neutral gray palette of the room to life. A vase holds the brushstrokes of the works. A concrete chain from The Future Perfect added a natural element.
Instead of a second bedroom, the customer wanted to use the area as a cave. Fitzgerald custom sofas, upholstered in gray ultrasuede, reflect the color of the sofas in the living room. Custom pillows also mirror those found in the adjoining area, uniting the two rooms.
A custom frosted glass lamp dangles above the kitchen island.
A vintage stool from First Dibs and a rug from Abyss bring warmth to the bathroom.
Adding texture to the room via specially cut velvet pillows and wallpaper went from cold to inviting in the master bedroom. A bench at the end of the bed holds books and vases. The soft materials and earthy colors picked up by the carpet add to the rich wood tones of the room and add to its appeal.
A small room next to the kitchen is a cozy home office; Sliding doors, which hide it during the day, can also be moved to turn the cave back into a bedroom when guests arrive.
With the help of Decor Aid, which makes working with and hiring an interior designer easier, the client was able to see how their space has changed within a week. The service, which deals with projects that only involve a freshening up of a room, begins with an hour-long consultation with one of its in-house designers to come up with a detailed plan for remodeling a room.
