‘Interiors’ Features our Latest San Francisco Home

Hayes Valley home by Niche Interiors featured in the latest issue of Interiors Magazine!

Interiors magazine featuring high-end California home designs

We are excited to share our most recent National editorial design coverage in Interiors Magazine! This San Francisco home is a perfect example of the magic that happens when a design client puts their full trust in us and in the design process, and is also willing to take risks. Our San Francisco interior designers channeled jazz musician vibes with a dash of Art Deco Modern to design a loungey space perfect for entertaining. Oxblood ceilings and charcoal gray moldings add a dramatic twist to the original architectural details from 1900.

He was very articulate in describing how he wanted the space to feel,” Jones remembers, using words like artistic, moody and sexy. “A lot of clients can’t do that.” He liked deep reds and golden ochres. “We don’t typically get the opportunity to do really bold colors in the warmer tones,” she says. “So we knew from the outset that this was going to be something unexpected.”

That starts with the rich oxblood red ceiling that punctuates the public rooms on the upper level. “It felt like a fun and very unexpected way to bring in a big swatch of color,” Jones says. Its vivacity is grounded by dark gray, used for the trim, that highlights the home’s original turn-of-the-last-century details. The steely hue also adds an industrial sheen, establishing the subtle tension between old and new, modern and antique, that makes these spaces come alive.

That’s confirmed by the lighting. “The fixtures we chose were key to helping set the mood we were going for,” Jones says. “They have a good blend of edgy and cool.” Zia-Priven’s Helios in Blackened Steel sets the tone for the living room, while Fuse Lighting’s Vail chandelier leads the charge in the dining room. “These rooms are open to each other,” Jones says. “So the challenge was to pick pieces that complemented each other but didn’t compete.”

The rich color palette continues into the adjoining formal dining room which features a custom walnut table fabricated locally in San Francisco, maroon leather dining chairs and an oversized smoked glass chandelier. A geometric wallpaper by Fayce Textiles adds just the right amount of visual interest.

Neutral grasscloth wallcovering, a textural wool rug and a chocolate velvet sofa create a cozy space for watching TV in the den. We designed custom highboy cabinets which open to reveal a fully stocked bar and ample storage for glassware.

“He was speechless,” Jones remembers of the client’s reaction to the space. “He told us that he couldn’t believe we nailed it.” Jones gives him credit for the space’s success. “It’s refreshing when a client has the confidence to welcome what we do,” says Jones. “It pushes us to take bigger risks and get the results they want.” – Jennifer Jones
