"Modern by Design . . . "

Good morning all,

The "Metropolitan Home - Modern by Design" Show House opened last Wednesday evening with a lavish party and one of the largest crowds that I've seen in SF in ages. Seriously, there was a line around the block to get in. And though it was tough to see the house through the masses of people, one of my clear favourites was the 'great room and loft' designed by the ever-marvelous and multi-talented Jay Jeffers.

“It’s definitely intended to be a sexy space for entertaining,” says Jeffers.

The custom designed hide rug (yep, that's cowhide - laser cut and custom dyed) was clearly one of the big stars of the night, and the clever mixture of organic shapes (I'm loving those fantastic lamps!) and textiles contrasted with more streamlined elements strikes the perfect chord - brilliant. For a complete listing of the resources, click here.

And here is the small jewel-box powder room - resplendent in cork tile (really, made from wine corks!), beautiful lighting, and staring the custom bronze vanity.

If you are in the San Francisco area, I highly recommend stopping by the house for a view of this and the other amazing spaces. Here's all the information for location and hours.

Mrs. B,

Okay - SERIOUSLY - that rug was amazing . . . lol.

What about the tile on the bathroom wall? It seems to mimic the famed rug!

(and what about Mr. Jeffers' eyes--WOW!)

okay I am obsessing over the rug. JJ is a genius. A David Hicks in the making.

Wow..a breath of terrific design air. Don't you love the elements such as the lamp shade pattern with that twist base? How about the coffee table legs on that killer rug?! Then I work my way down to that powder room wall with it's very clever corked wall juxtaposed with the yellow patterned paper. GORGEOUS!
