August 24, 2009

In the Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco, what started off as a decorating job turned into a full-blown renovation for Nicole Hollis, founder of Nicole Hollis Interior Design. "When I walked inside, I knew it needed to be redone," she recalls. "The cabinets were made of plastic laminate that was peeling off, it was really small, and the rooms just didn't fit."

  Hollis designed the kitchen--which features a Boffi kitchen system and Gaggenau appliances-- as three zones. The first centers around the stainless-steel-and-Zodiac-stone island, which is topped by a custom beaded chandelier by South African company TeamTwo Design. This zone functions as a place for food preparation, cooking, serving, and socializing. The second zone is the clean-up area, and the third is the bar.Photo by Ben Mayorga Photography

  The kitchen opens up to the dining room, where Hollis played with size and shape. She designed the solid French oak dining table and bench, which were fabricated by B Serota Furniture and Architectural Design, and flanked the table with a Host and Hostess chair from Coup d'Etat San Francisco. She hung two Piet Boon-designed drum pendants over the table and placed a large mirror on the wall to extend the space so that the person sitting on the bench can see the living room fireplace in the reflection.Photo by Ben Mayorga Photography

  The living room and dining room were originally separated by a central fireplace, which Hollis removed to create this great room. She installed a custom eight-foot-long open gas fireplace in the living room (equipped with sensors that automatically turn it off when someone gets too near to the flames).Photo by Ben Mayorga Photography

  At the end of the kitchen opposite the dining room is the family room. It looks back to the kitchen and acts as a breakfast nook on a day-to-day basis and provides an intimate area for smaller, more casual entertaining. Hollis used a black silk and wool shag rug from ABC Carpet to pull together the Casa Milano sofa, and B&B Italia lounge chairs and ottoman.Photo by Ben Mayorga Photography

  The master suite was relocated from the upper level to the lower level to separate public and private spaces. Hollis designed the custom white-oak bed and suite headboard with built-in bedside tables (fabricated by B Serota Furniture and Architectural Design and upholstered by Kroll Furniture) and opened the room to the backyard garden to extend the space.Photo by Ben Mayorga Photography
