Here’s a house in Pacific Heights. I’m collaborating with a designer friend Ian Stallings on this project. It looks ok from the street, but a thorough study shows that it needs a new foundation, floor plan reworking, and upgraded interiors. The blank area above the garage door could use something too.
The back of the house has a wall of ’70s sliding doors which is a great to capture light, but at the low standard 80″ height, the blank wall/gable above gives a top-heavy feeling.
The rooms seemed to be carefully set up – but much of this funky look won’t last through the remodel. The dropped ceiling, the (smoke and) mirrors, applied wall brick…
Mustard yellow and dark brown 70s kitchen scheme – making a comeback? Maybe, but this one didn’t hold up enough to stick around.
