The client for the spacious neoclassical Woodside residence came to us to help sell her parents’ home. Spread across a large flat lot, the one story house is well integrated into the gorgeous landscaping. The owners were avid art collectors and design aficionados, and our client wanted the staging to reflect their tastes. We used their love of art as inspiration for our design direction, treating each room as if it were a separate gallery in a museum, with only one or two artists featured in each space. The furniture for each room took cues for color, fabric and texture directly from the art. The art itself was given lots of space, making it the focal point of each room.
For the outdoor areas, we carefully placed pieces from Paola Lenti, providing pops of color and creating a sculptural feel to the design, echoing the spectacular sculptures found throughout the gardens. We utilized contemporary furnishings by Living Divani, De Padova, Baxter, Moroso and Paola Lenti throughout the home, along with lighting, accessories and local art by Bay Area artists including: Carrie Ann Plank, Lucky Rapp, Kaveri Singh, Victoria Welling, Matthew MacCaul Turner, Thomas Heinser, Ellen Markoff, Lian Ng, Silvia Poloto, Nikki Vismara, Renee DeCarlo, Lauren Parks, Christopher Stark, Paule Dubois Dupuis, Laura Hapka, Howard Hersh, Gina Jacupke, Barbara Bryn Klare and Ronald Chase.
