Designer Visit: San Anselmo Bungalow by Jute Interior Design

January 22, 2012

To put together a well-curated collection of objects, it helps if your interior designer is experienced in art and antiques, as is the case with Alison Davin of Jute Interior Design in Mill Valley.

Davin (whose firm is a member of the Remodelista Architect/Designer Directory), spent nearly a decade working for galleries in LA and San Francisco, and switched over to interior design when she found herself not only consulting on artwork, but everything around the art. "Clients would ask me, 'What sofa should go here?' 'What color should I paint the wall behind the art?'" says Davin.

For a young family who had recently moved into a 1920s Spanish-Revival bungalow in San Anselmo, Davin found furnishings that "had a history and a story" to them. "My client had spent time in the Peace Corps in Africa, and was very particular about where things came from, which I loved," she says.
