A top-to-bottom renovation has brought this Victorian home from turn-of-the-century to 21st Century.
Bay Areans who love a modern project from locally renowned architect Stanley Saitowitz will find much to drool over in this Berkeley home.
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. A designer for Homepolish, Savannah is as savvy with power tools as she is with choosing and styling the perfect flea market find. She painted and reupholstered quite a few worn furnishings to give them new life, and her personal touch is evident everywhere in the room. Plus, she's found cool ways to organize her space without breaking the bank—we love her solution to SF's notorious lack of closets! Her home is a “reflection of so many great memories,” and it feels exactly like that as soon as you enter.
For those with perpetual wanderlust, a new SF-based website, StyleVISA, can provide a temporary travel fix. The site features finds from France, Sweden, New Zealand, Japan, Africa, Mexico, Tunisia, Canada and across the US, ranging from home goods to skincare to accessories. Each product has a story and a complimentary Tumblr blog extends the StyleVISA trip via inspirational world photography.
