Blending classic East Coast influences with a casual California lifestyle, this Presidio Heights home in San Francisco tells the story of the young family that resides there. Stylish enough for entertaining yet livable enough for small children, these five floors combine durability with an inviting atmosphere. The family’s love of the outdoors is mirrored in the many botanical textiles. The children’s sense of wonder is reflected in the remarkable hand-painted wall treatments. The couple’s diverse backgrounds are echoed in the fluid melding of the antiques and Art Deco elements that define the living room. 

Katherine designed this with Barbara Scavullo.
