Modern Home-Redmond Aldrich Design-03-1 Kindesign

A home in the Russian Hill neighborhood of San Francisco, California was given a modern update accented by subtle colors and refined textures by Redmond Aldrich Design. When the homeowners purchased this apartment, the interiors were brand new, by they were not a fan of the design. It was a little too minimalist for their tastes, so this is when they decided to hire an interior designer to help them with the task of adding personality into the space. The designers started with a neutral color palette and layered colors through furnishings and artwork and added texture through textiles and area rugs that helps to delineate spaces. An open plan kitchen and dining room helps to compliment one another. The living area is close by, perfect for easy entertaining, which was one of the goals for the design of this home.

A comfortable living room/library is the homeowner’s favorite room in the house. It features a soft color palette of warm woods, grays and and sunlit yellows. A library ladder allows access to the books that are on the higher stainless steel shelves.

What We Love: Its a toss up between the bright and airy living room/library… libraries are awesome aren’t they? — and the master bathroom with it’s beautiful onyx wall, what a showpiece! This is a very comfortable home, love that it is modern but doesn’t feel quite modern with the subtle punches of color, artwork and accessories. What are your thoughts, too modern for your tastes or do you like what the designers have done?
