Fontana Interior modern-bedroom
 

Fontana Interior

photos: Matthew Millman

This 1100 SF space is a reinvention of an early 1960s unit in one of two semi-circular apartment towers near San Francisco’s Aquatic Park. The existing design ignored the sweeping views and featured the same humdrum features one might have found in a mid-range suburban development from 40 years ago. The clients who bought the unit wanted to transform the apartment into a pied a terre with the feel of a high-end hotel getaway: sleek, exciting, sexy. The apartment would serve as a theater, revealing the spectacular sights of the San Francisco Bay.

Swing Arm Wall Lamp Solutions from Shades of Light

Where: Swing arm wall lamps can be the perfect lighting solution when tabletop space is not available: beside beds, behind sofas, between bookshelves, over dressing tables, and even in bathrooms.

Style: Because these lamps have adjustable arms and can be hung at any height, they are excellent task lights for functions such as reading and needlework.

Wattage: Look for swing arm wall lamps that provide a variety of light levels (3-way sockets and dimmers).

Placement: Hang wall lamps so that the bottom of the shade is at eye level of the user.

Shades: Unique lampshades can give any wall lamp just the right personality for your room.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Houzz Tour: Sleek San Francisco Getaway
While full of shiny glossy surfaces, the textural palette includes soft touches as well, such as this tufted headboard and matching bedding.
Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to Weekend Decorating: Playing with Blankets, Throws, and Quilts
This looks like a larger-scaled version of the above technique. Tossing what almost looks like a matching blanket over a ceiling-height headboard not only adds a sense of grandeur to the bedroom but also serves as a plush backdrop in this cocoon of cozy.
Natalie Myers added this to Remake a Room With One Big Piece
Bringing an upholstered headboard as high as you can go, almost to the ceiling, is a way to harness the trend without being too overt.
This architect utilizes all kinds of visual and physical space-saving tricks, from the white palette to the wall-mounted high headboard. The slender swingarm sconces can be adjusted and add an interesting architectural detail.
Samantha Schoech added this to Alluring All-White Rooms
Even sleek, modern white can feel snuggly. The emphasis in this room is on the light and the view, but doesn't the bed look comfy?
