Take a Peek Into This Serene San Francisco Apartment — House Tour

Name: Mohammad and Rachael Gorjestani
Location: Western Addition — San Francisco, California
Size: 800 square feet
Years lived in: 3 years, rented

Mohammad and Rachel’s San Francisco apartment is so cozy and serene, it’s easy to forget that it’s right next to a busy intersection at the center of the city. The original hardwood floors add warmth to the space, and the view of greenery in their spacious backyard (a true luxury in San Francisco) is beautiful. They realize they’re lucky to have stumbled upon this apartment after a long tedious search. “We knew exactly the kind of apartment we wanted, but given the housing crisis and crazy costs of San Francisco, it took a while to find a place that fit the bill and we could afford,” they say. “We got very lucky!”

A Colorful “Tongue-in-Chic” San Francisco Apartment — House Tour

Name: Ginevra Held and her mom, Beverly
Location: Richmond — San Francisco, California
Size: 1,200 square feet
Years lived in: Ginevra — 1.5 years; Beverly — 10 years, owned

Ginevra has been surrounded by art all of her life. Her mom has a PhD in art history, so Ginevra has been to countless art museums around the world—an amenity that has obviously influenced her style. Her brother is also a glass artist and craftsman who often collaborates with her to execute design ideas. Just recently, he drew all over a Restoration Hardware ottoman in the living room at Ginevra’s request, adding that extra “oomph” she strives for in each room. Clearly, the house is buzzing with creativity. But it’s thanks to Ginevra’s unique point of view as an interior designer that each space feels new and unexpected.

The Cartorialist’s Classic, Relaxed California Home — House Tour

Name: Carly Kuhn
Location: Larchmont — Los Angeles, California
Size: 1,303 square feet
Years Lived In: 1.5 years, renting

“I moved into this space about year and a half ago. I was drawn to this space because of the great location. As a New Yorker, I love this Larchmont area that’s really walkable. It also has insane light, which is always a priority, especially since I work from home and need a lot of light to feel inspired,” admits Carly Kuhn, artist and founder of The Cartorialist. But even after over a year in this loft space, she didn’t quite feel like she had her home’s layout right. There’s lots of light and beautiful views, but also a wide open floor plan. She explains that “it was difficult to conceptualize the entire design and layout without seeing everything together.”
