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.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Houzz Tour: Sleek San Francisco Getaway
The dramatic height of the headboard extends the eye vertically and the strict white palette makes the space appear larger.
Becky Harris added this to High Style: Extra-Tall Headboards
The architect of this renovation knew he had to counter the large ceilings. While it seems counter-intuitive, the tall headboard actually makes the ceiling appear higher. The use of white makes the room look larger as well. See more of this San Francisco house. More: Headboards that Stand Out Alternative Headboards More photos of bedroom designs
Natalie Myers added this to Hot Ideas for Cool White Spaces
An all-white modern bedroom speaks of high-end hotel luxury and travel to sun-bleached Mediteranean locales. The streamlined architectural lines of this white bedroom let me know I don't have to think about anything, I can just chill.
A quilted headboard and view of the sea keep this bedroom on the soft side. Layering various white textures is a good way to be sure that your room won't seem too clinical.
Becky Harris added this to Captured in Design: Alcatraz
This sleek bedroom has a wall of windows for admiring the view of the bay and Alcatraz. This bed sure looks more luxurious than a prison cot.
Another space-saving detail in this room: adding wall-mounted shelves that serve as nightstands without taking up floor space.
Elements of Style added this to 8 Ways to Treasure the Diamond Pattern at Home
6. Make your bed. This plush custom-made headboard and the bed cover take the simplicity of the diamond pattern and turn it into a truly spectacular statement.
