Pretty Presidio Heights Home by Palmer Weiss

{Sitting Pretty: The living room features a neutral palette paired with bold pops of color and a mixture of clean lines-- the Parsons coffee tables and armchairs juxtaposed against the feminine curves of the wooden chairs and tufted sofa.}

Have you been keeping up with all of the shelter publications lately? I feel like 2014 is off to a really great start! As a designer and blogger, I am entrenched in design all day, everyday, so sometimes, it can feel challenging to feel inspired by the magazines because from time to time, things can start to just blur together. Luckily, the editors have had some amazing projects in store for us so far this year and I am feeling so inspired by several of the projects I have seen recently, including this pretty home in San Francisco's Presidio Heights designed by the talented, Palmer Weiss

The decor is a modern take on traditional style-- my favorite-- and features beautiful, thoughtful details in each space along with some unexpected statement touches. I am currently working on designing a house for a client in which we have fully embraced bold colors throughout, with a few recurring colors to make everything feel cohesive, so I was really pleased to see that Palmer had done something similar in her client's home. While some rooms, such as the formal living room (pictured above) revolve around a neutral color palette accented with pops of color, other spaces, such as the dining room (pictured directly below) embrace a saturated, tone-on-tone use of color which feels super fresh and ultra-chic. I am so inspired by this home and hope the inspiration keeps on coming in next month's issue of ELLE DECOR!


{I am in love with everything about this dining room. I adore the use of one saturated color. The look is so rich and provides the perfect backdrop for the dramatic art, chandelier, and klismos-style chairs.}

{While the formal dining rooms feels dramatic, the breakfast room is a breath of fresh, sunny air. You can never go wrong with the classic combination of a Saarinen Tulip Table with Chippendale bamboo-style dining chairs. It is timeless, preppy perfection.}

{The kitchen is rather classic, but does feature the modern touch of a chevron marble backsplash.}
{The den is filled with earthy colors and organic shapes that invite one to sit and stay for a while.}

{Palmer opted for a rich, monotone palette again in the master bedroom featuring mostly shades of green along with the pop of robin's egg blue in the form of the curtains. Again, the furnishings are a stylish mix of traditional and modern.}

{I love the playful nature of the little girl's room. What could be more fun than loads of pink, bunk beds, and a big, oversized hanging pendant?}

Which room is your favorite? How do you feel about mixing styles? Do you like the idea of choosing one main color for a room?

That living room is just incredible. Amazing view, comfortable furniture and love the touches of purple (as I'm sure you do too). The breakfast room just screams 'sunny side up' and will definitely help people wake up! Love this tour.

I think the bench backing onto the stair railing is brilliant. Without the hight back, it wouldn't feel safe and cozy.
