When Homepolish interior designer Annouchka Engel first walked into her San Francisco townhouse, it more closely resembled a frat house than a family home. Architectural features had been long demolished, the rooms were small and boxed in, and the heating and electricity needed a complete overhaul.
Not one to step away from a challenge, Engel tackled a complete gut renovation to turn this 1876 Victorian townhouse in San Francisco's Pacific Heights neighborhood into a warm and whimsical family home she now shares with her husband, David, their five-month-old daughter, Chloé, and their dog, Marlowe. To see what some new floors and the right wallpaper can do, keep reading for the masterful transformation.

Despite a few renovation challenges, namely the herringbone floors, and the city permits required for updating a heritage listed home, Engel was able to create a lovely Parisian enclave for her family in the heart of San Francisco.
