Interior designer Benedetta Amadi, one of Homepolish’s 170 U.S. designers, became her own client when she designed her own San Francisco pad, which included completely changing the layout, renovating the master bathroom, new floors, and adding built-ins. The result is a light-filled home with subtle hues, modern and mid-century furnishings, and collected treasures from around the world.
With neutrals as her canvas, Amadi appointed the decor with the familiarity of worn leather, the warmth of reclaimed wood, and lively hues such as ocean blue and poppy red, which mostly come from Moroccan textiles (soon, she’ll include the shibori she picked up on a recent jaunt to Tokyo). Plants, warm woods, and plenty of textures were incorporated to create a cozy feel throughout the apartment. Adding an array of photography—from an iconic shot of George Harrison and Pattie Boyd in the dining room to the living room’s tribal portraits by Lyle Owerko, the photographer who captured the searing 9-11 cover image for Time Magazine—Amadi deepens the airy two-story home with cultural remembrances from a lifetime of wanderlust. Colorful vintage pillows from Marrakesh pop against the all-white banquet in the dining room.
Take as example this eye-catching interiors set in the private house in San Francisco, each one creating a special atmosphere and throning over different surrounding elements, unifying the interior design with a classic touch.
