Project Reveal: Phlox Commons

One of the most recent projects we've completed is Phlox Commons, a hotel restaurant & beer/wine bar with a comfortable American brasserie vibe. It's located in the Lower Nob Hill neighborhood inside the Hotel Carlton

We wanted the space to feel really approachable to travelers and so we used a variety of materials you might find at a restaurant or bar anywhere in the world. The combination of classic subway tiles and brass finishes along side modern lighting and mixed wood tones allows for an inviting but sophisticated experience. The wallpaper we chose was inspired by local Bay Area outdoor environments and the mix of cool green-blue color tones are to emulate the natural surroundings of the water and the landscape in and around San Francisco.  

Location: 1075 Sutter St, San Francisco, CA 94109, inside Hotel Carlton

Lighting at the bar includes Lambert & Fils Dot Suspension

Why our favorite color is black...

It is almost Halloween and we all know my favorite color is black. I wish it were purple or blue or yellow but it isn't and it never has been. I know...It's not really a color but for this article that is what we will refer to it as. My car is black, my dog is black, I pretty much only wear black and if I had it my way my house would be painted black. So in honor of the vampires, ghosts, bats and witches that make up our mysterious dark underworld, here is a round up of all things black we love. Oh and Happy Halloween!

 

 

Project Reveal: Barzotto

I'm excited to share with you one of our recently completed projects, Barzotto. Barzotto is a new fast casual fresh pasta bar that opened in the Mission this last August. The space was originally an auto repair shop before being taken over by restaurants (the last occupant was wine bar/gastropub St. Vincent).

We are so proud with how the space turned out! The original design concept was old world charm with a modern sensibility. Marko (Sotto) and his team have incredible style which made the design process really fun and exciting. The mix of colors and warmth really lend to an inviting space to eat a delicious bowl of past with your friends and family. Take a look below and check out the space, or better stop in for a bite!

We did a plaster install with the extremely talented  Rye Hudak of Level 5 Designs  which layers in a ton of texture and depth. The wainscot is Benjamin Moore - Marina Gray.

I am ecstatic with how the ceiling turned out, the white washed wood really sets a bright tone for the space.

The leather banquette adds a lot of comfort and rich color.

Installing the tile at an angle, instead of straight set, adds more visual interest to the space.

We loved the old world feel of the print and thought the touch of gold was perfect for the space. It is from  Cole and Sons .
