A handsome craftsman style home situated on an urban park sets the foundation for a young, modern family. With an open concept and living area adjacent to the kitchen, it was imperative to select furnishings and textiles that could withstand children and messy meals. Pewter-hued Italian leather protected with layers of hand buffed wax ensured that a comfortable sofa and bar stools look even smarter once scuffed up. Desaturated sisal rugs and a wipe-able glass coffee table with rounded corners disappear into the kid-approved space. Native pop-art and a complete Ottolenghi cook book collection personalize the environment.
