I am heading to San Francisco tomorrow for some meetings later in the week. Whenever I think of San Francisco, I always imagine the ease of the California lifestyle mixed with a more refined, buttoned-up sensibility than what you find in Southern California. While San Francisco is a very progressive city, speaking in very general terms, it also includes a population that is a bit more conservative than that of say, Los Angeles. San Francisco has a gentility, refinement, and elegance worthy of the first-class city that it is. When I cam across this beautiful project by San Francisco designer, Heather Hilliard, I immediately though that it embodies the effortless elegance that I associate with beautiful San Francisco. I love the spare, neutral palette and the mix of traditional and modern elements in these spaces.
