We are pleased to share that Kimball Starr has been published in her second hardcover book, Country-Style Residences! Her project “Hillside Retreat” is one of 34 projects highlighted as exceptional examples of variations on country style: British, French, American, and Modern. Kimball’s project falls under the Modern category.
Kimball Starr’s ‘Hillside Retreat’ is a San Francisco urban location, surrounded by woods and natural elements. While the project leans toward the modern style, country style is displayed through the use of many plants, plant-themed decorative paintings, and floral-patterned fabrics, as you can see in the bedrooms. Though this project features a rich palette, it is unified by the use of a single dominant color in each room – chartreuse and teal in the dining room, cherry-toned wood in the kitchen, yellow in the master bedroom and tangerine in the guest bedroom.
Translated into English and Chinese, this hardcover publication boasts many beautiful photographs illustrating why the projects were chosen from around the world.
In this San Francisco home design, fabrics such as cotton, leather, wool, velvet and linen reinforce the tactile comfort of the spaces, while the carefully-selected furnishings bring in playful modernity, and provide a sense of lightness and fun.
In the beautiful hardcover book, we are proud to have our project featured next to the 2014 AD100 New York interior designer Jamie Drake of Drake Design, the Architectural Digest list that names the top 100 architects and designers in the world!
If you would like a copy to display on your own coffee table, you can purchase Country Style Residences through Amazon.com.
