Spotted recently on Freunde von Freunden: a monastic gentleman's bedroom in the San Francisco home of Nir Stern. The son of two architects, Stern moved from Tel Aviv to the Bay Area to study architecture but found himself in the tech world doing interface design.
His home, a renovated Victorian situated on a hill in Noe Valley, was designed in collaboration with architect James Hill. We especially like the guest room, which features custom pieces mixed with antique furniture (the kind of pieces you might find in a tailor's shop). For more, read the interview by Kelly Lynn Waters for Freunde von Freunden.
