Get This Room: Romantic Modern Design

We rounded up the essentials in this moody San Francisco living room so you can recreate the look in your home.

San Francisco-based architect and designer Abigail Turin transformed her 1925 Italianate home into a modern abode. “You don’t have to stay in the language of your exterior, but you don’t have to eliminate it, either,” says Turin of her old-meets-new approach. When Turin noticed the living room was a naturally dim space, she embraced it with slate walls and cozy furnishings. Dwell broke the room down piece by piece so readers can recreate it.
