We are going for a timeless, modern take on an old school room. We have added modern amenities that today’s family would use and love.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 26, 2012
Marin based interior designer Allison Bloom seems to be springing up everywhere lately. Feverishly preparing for the upcoming Dwell and Marin Magazine home tour of her Mill Valley home this April 28-29 and preparing a room for the 2012 San Francisco Decorator Showcase, opening April 28 and running through May 28, 2012, her fun and stylish design is cultivating a following.
Allison Bloom of Dehn Bloom Design is partnering with Tinsley Hutson-Wiley Interior Design on a pantry in this grand Classic Revival house for the 2012 San Francisco Decorator Showcase. Presented with the challenge of a dark and narrow pantry off the formal dining room, Bloom and Hutson-Wiley create a highly useful and cheeky take on a pantry for a contemporary family that respects the history and tradition of the houses’ design yet integrates modern amenities and clean lines.
Utilizing local vendors, Allison and Tinsley have created a pantry any butler (or family) would love. Sausalito based Heath Ceramics supplies neutral beige subway tiles in a matte finish that act as a highly functional and stylish backsplash to the newly installed gas range, brushed stainless steel hood and counters. Sourcing kitchen accessories from March on Sacramento Street, March has supplied a variety of sizes and shapes of cutting boards that do double duty as both wall art and cooking tool. Spinneybeck supplies the chic drawer pulls in a dark brown leather, that are easy to grasp and hold up to daily use. Decorative painter Willem Racké painted on the opposite pantry wall a full size Union Jack flag, but in the brown and beige palate of the room, adding a dose of fun to the functionality of the space. Allison says, ”We are going for a timeless, modern take on an old school room. We have added modern amenities that today’s family would use and love.”
