Home of a fashion designer in a converted bar

Moving slightly away from the Christmas theme today with the beautiful San Francisco home of Courtney Klein, owner of Storq, a company focusing on empowering pregnant women through fashion, and her husband Zach. Located in Mission District, the former bar was built on a fault line and has survived two earthquakes without damage since 1890. Despite this shaky start (couldn'r resist!),  Courtney and Zach have created a home full of character; I love the mid century touches, personal installations such as the pallet coat storage unit which Zach made and the splashes of red. And what a garden?!

Very cool don't you think? Who would ever guess their bedroom was previously used for storing beer?!
Thank you so much to Ann Street Studio for allowing me to publish these images. If you'd like to see more pictures and read more about Courtney and her wonderful home (including where many of the items are from) you can read the complete article here
Have a lovely day!

PS I had a question from one lovely reader asking about wonderful places to buy Scandinavian interior items in the US. Any tips?

  1. Oh, I think I know which building this is, cool to see inside. And she is so lucky to have a garden like that. I lived in San Francisco for awhile & space is such a premium.

  2. This house has all I love so much: light, wood, grey and white... a cozy atmosphere... I love the kitchen: my future one will be the same ;)

  3. Just Scandinavian in New York (http://www.justscandinavian.com) has a really beautiful selection. (I've been wanting to go for a while now, but haven't yet had the chance.) They don't do online orders, but it looks like you can call or email to place an order. They don't seem to list most of their prices online, but I get the feeling from browsing that they are very high. There's also Scandinavian Design (also in NYC). I'm unfamiliar with it, but it looks like they have a wide selection: http://www.scandinaviandesigninc.com/index.html
