A Contemporary Makeover for a San Francisco Condo


We were contacted by a couple who had retired, moved from the Peninsula to San Francisco, and purchased a lovely 2-bedroom condominium near the ballpark with incredible views of downtown San Francisco. They wanted to update their space to fit their style and needs. With the help of interior designer Kimball Starr, they worked with Larry Fox and went with very contemporary styling throughout their new home. 

One of Valet’s designs included custom cabinetry to create an office and guest room in the second bedroom space.

Gloss antique white laminate was chosen for the casework and gloss sonic blue laminate for the fronts, with a matte antique white counter. Brushed Satin Nickle pulls from Top Knobs were used on the drawers as well as the Wall Bed.

This room presented a number of special design elements due to the architecture of the space. We needed to work around the low windows on the desk side wall, as well as a bump out corner between the two walls. 

Larry also designed custom cabinetry for two more spaces in this home. The first is this set of buffet cabinets and a wine refrigerator, specifically designed to help highlight the art piece that is the focal point of the entire wall.

The final space that Larry designed is the adjacent wall of the above room and features a very modern media cabinet and corner desk.
