Current Obsessions: Understated Appeal


Current Obsessions: Understated Appeal

August 27, 2016

This week we’ve been inspired by an understated palette, strong architectural, lines, and enduring materials. Read on to learn more of our latest obsessions.

Above: Sunset has recently unveiled its Bay Area California Idea House to the public. Referencing the Craftsman movement, Geremia Design created the home’s interiors to include artisan materials, while landscape designer Michelle Derviss brought the house’s exterior sloping hillside to life. Located in Berkeley, the house will be open to tours Friday through Sunday until September 25. Tickets can be purchased here. Photograph by Thomas J. Story, courtesy of Sunset Magazine.
