    Default A Fashion Designer's Home in San Francisco

    A FASHION DESIGNERíS HOME IN SAN FRANCISCO

    This is the beautiful San Francisco home of fashion designer Courtney Klein, owner of Storq (which focuses on maternity fashion). The house, which was built in the late 1890s, is located in Mission District. Although the house is about 125 years old, it is very sturdy as it has survived two of the largest earthquakes in modern time without any structural damage. The decor is an interesting combination of vintage items, modern pieces, DIY designs (such as the the entry wall made out of wooden pallet) and things brought back from abroad. This unique mix gives the house a lot of character.

    Well, the old dog is cute.
    Can't say much about the rest, since the white blinded me.

    I know. My beloved, a clawfoot tub, and I can't even make it out for all the white.

    The pallet thing is also stupid, it looks bad.

    However, these are all easily changeable so fuck yes I'll take a house in the Mission!

    I'd take the house, but this is how I decorated when I had my first studio apartment and ate ramen noodles.

    I love her nightstand too. A bit too sparse for my taste but those lovely Victorian bones make anything work. Nice garden area, which is quite a plus in SF.

    She has a good high fence there, lol. Plus, the Mission is in SF so if anyone wants to hand me pretty much ANY SF Victorian I will take it, and if I have to point my shotgun at a few thugs to convince them my house isn't worth the effort, well, so be it. I'm pretty good at the puffing up my fur and acting scary thing.

    I might draw the line accepting gift homes around Turk and Eddy, though.

    It's not so bad if you pick the right area. Few years back I lived on the edge of the mission and the castro, and besides the homeless and handful of druggies it really wasn't as bad as 16/18th & Mission and the southern parts of the Mission. But we could walk there if we wanted. It was great. I'm thinking about the great houses around Dolores Park, and nearly everything on Dolores is pretty. Amazing how much difference a block or two can make in those parts.

    I like the Mission bc it's relatively warm and sunny, and it has a funky vibe. I thin Dolores Park is seen as a bit separate anyhow.

    This is lovely! I'd probably repaint the white away because I hate white/magnolia walls, but all the natural wood stuff is lovely. That display cabinet glass thingie is really nice, although in my house it'd be an embarrassing guddle of crap that i'd want to hide away since I'm so disorganised haha
    I smile because I have no idea what's going on
