Step Inside an Energetic Home Filled With Color and Character
Designer Laura Elliot wanted to help a San Francisco couple imbue their 1917 home with creative energy that reflected their personalities. And with three kids under the age of 5, the homeowners needed lots of family-friendly activity space.
Elliot drew upon the couple’s love of Justice League, the comic book superheroes, to fill the home with color and art while preserving its old-world character. A framed art piece depicting Wonder Woman sets the tone at the charming front entry. A soothing palette of blue ensconces the combined family room, game area and formal living space. Curved furniture pieces minimize potentially dangerous angles for the young kids.
In the dining room, a watercolor-like wallpaper creates a dreamy atmosphere. A vibrant wallpaper on the main bedroom ceiling recalls a colorful comic book panel. A forest-inspired theme cheers up a nursery. And a lively swim-themed wallpaper makes a happy splash in a kids bathroom.
