Striking a Balance

A Transitional Design Condo Update

The owners of this condo in Pacific Heights wanted to update their 60s-style kitchen and bathrooms yet strike a balance between ultra-modern and more traditional. To achieve this, we combined clean modern lines and contemporary fittings with warm natural stone and rich woods. In the kitchen, we achieved a distinctive effect by using quarter-sawn cherry veneer on the shaker-style cabinet doors with the grain run horizontally. Beautiful brown granite and custom stain complement the oak floors we selected to provide continuity with the rest of the house. The primary bath features a vanity designed with a wrap-over counter of thick granite, Wenge wood veneers, Venetian plaster, and a carefully coordinated variety of glass and stone tiles. In the guest bath, a similar material palette is enlivened by the inclusion of a wall-hung toilet and an art niche.
