First spotted in California Home + Design magazine: the Potrero Hill flat of Brazilian-born, Swiss-schooled, San Francisco-based designer Antonio Martins.

Martins has lived and worked in Hong Kong, Argentina, and Bangkok, and his international approach is on view throughout his interiors. To see more, go to Antonio Martins.

Above: Martins fell for the flat because it features original details (the hardware is intact) and abundant light.

Above: An original O’Keefe & Merritt stove anchors the kitchen; Martins stained the floors and added stainless steel shelving and counter units to update the look.

Above: A pair of vintage Hans Wegner Papa Bear armchairs, clad in muslin, occupies the TV room.

Above: A marble-topped chest in the guest room.

Above: In the guest bedroom, the walls are covered in gray fabric

Above: The bath features a rustic table repurposed as a sink.
