Savannah Roberts' bedroom is impeccable. Located on the top floor of an old Victorian building, the space is classic San Francisco, balancing new and old, purchased and homemade.

She painted and reupholstered quite a few worn furnishings to give them new life, and her personal touch is evident everywhere in the room.

Her home is a “reflection of so many great memories,” and it feels exactly like that as soon as you enter.
