These designers created a stunning Union Jack backsplash (right) out of painted and finished plywood. The elements of this pantry, from the backsplash to the shelving to the burlap curtains to the zinc counters, are relatively inexpensive and easy to install.
Downstairs Kitchen and Lounge
By Green Couch Interior Design
Every grand home needs an indoor-outdoor space, and Green Couch Interior Design made the most of this home's expansive square footage with a combined kitchen and living space that opens up to the outdoor patio. The mild San Francisco weather begs for spaces like this, and neutral furnishings keep the focus on the outdoor view.
Being open to the outdoor patio makes the kitchen more entertainment friendly.

While this dining room called for a grand design, the designer put a modern twist on the traditional table and chairs arrangement.
Multiple purple Lucite tables are informal enough for casual meals and can be pulled to different parts of the room. A beautiful light fixture by Jonathan Browning made of abalone shells echoes the nature-inspired hues in the tables, chairs and moss-covered fireplace.

This elegant outdoor pagoda off the master bedroom is the perfect outdoor room. Striped outdoor fabric from Perennials offers shelter and frames the stunning view of the San Francisco Bay. Designer Frank Holbrook took the design over the top with an antique chandelier, plants and accessories in a traditional European estate style.
Entry Garden and Portico
By Davis Dalbock, Living Green
The entrance previously felt lacking and needed a contemporary update. Succulents and oxtails were the ideal addition for this south-facing wall.
