Inside the Cool, Quirky San Francisco Apartment That Stole Our Heart

The first step in most interior design projects is to get to know the person or people who live in the home, but for Kara Smith of SFA Design, the brief was somewhat ambiguous. Tasked with designing two model residences at The Harrison, a luxury development in SoMa, San Francisco, her first challenge was to envisage who might move into the apartments—then create their dream space. The result? A sleek, gender-neutral home that's the epitome of cool.

"Our goal was to create an urban cool, contemporary vibe, but still be a comfortable home that appealed to a millennial customer and also a local who wanted a pied-à-terre in the city," Smith tells MyDomaine. Floor-to-ceiling windows, cerused wood-grain floorboards, and brass detailing provided the perfect canvas for the project. From there, Smith's imagination was able to run wild.

Take a peek inside the contemporary-cool SF apartments for a lesson in gender-neutral design.
