Overview

Style expert Diane Dorrans Saeks has an eye for design and she's setting her sights on the City by the Bay. This lavishly photographed book opens the doors to exquisite Bay Area dwellings, inviting readers of all tastes into just-so apartments, grand houses, light-drenched lofts, and cozy bungalows. Enter the graceful abode of San Francisco luminary Ann Getty, whose unique vision is reflected in a multitude of textures unrestricted by style or period. Visit designer Steven Volpe's South of Market loft, converted from a 1916 printing factory. A tour of Dr. Paul Turek's hillside home pays homage to classic contemporary Italian design (and the art of crafting the perfect surfboard). With more than 200 inspiring color photographs, this collection captures the scope of homes and lifestyles that make the northern California region unique. And with Diane Dorrans Saeks's list of where to shop, view art, and truly get an inside look at the city notorious for stealing hearts, this is the perfect guide for interior designers, accomplished home stylists, and anyone looking to create San Francisco style.
