San Francisco is renowned for its classic Victorian and Edwardian houses; however, it is refreshing to see a homeowner add a modernist touch to a historic facade. We love the look of this cheery entryway, featuring a lime-green door with simple satin chrome lever handle, a glass star chandelier, and crisp modern door numbers. For a look at the interior of this house by Feldman Architecture, see our previous post Architect Visit: Feldman Architecture.
