My clients made the best use of their time before relocating to San Francisco. They shipped their furniture and boxes to San Francisco in a truck and went driving on a cross country family vacation. While the family was vacationing, I got to work on their house interior design. I met with the movers and placed the items in their new home, and settled on a colorful, casual modern interior design style for their home. The new design updated the classic Eichler home in a bright palette that centered around navy and grey.

The clients’ love for Greece got translated into this design in the form of natural materials and fiber cement objects. Rugs, furnishings, and decor introduced color in this scheme. At the same time, a bookshelf in natural wood added other textures—a blank canvas in the kitchen made for a fun family activity and social event with visitors. The outdoor courtyard was made into a casual space to enjoy the weather and entertain guests, and with the addition of a teepee, turned into a play area for the clients’ young children.
