eco+historical Sanchez 1

This 1889 Victorian underwent a gut rehabilitation in 2010-2012 to transform it from a dilapidated 2BR/1BA to a 5BR/4BA contemporary family home that looks more or less the same from the street, aside from the garage addition. A fresh and modern all-white palette was chosen with black shingles on the roof and a black door. Hand-painted gold-leaf house numbers appear on the Transom above the entry. This house achieved a LEED Platinum green certification from the US Green Building Council in 2012.

I can't speak to the technique as that was the purview of my painting subcontractor, but I believe that the entire exterior was rolled and brushed, not sprayed. This was Benjamin Moore Eco Spec paint matched to the Ralph Lauren Picket Fence color, not Ralph Lauren paint. I believe this was 2 coats over zero VOC primer.

Opposite of dark is this Stick Victorian, a project I worked on personally — also in San Francisco. Providing a nice contrast with the neighbors and retaining all of the Victorian details, this color scheme makes the house pop and feel fresh and contemporary while still acknowledging and respecting the home's 19th-century provenance.
