Right in the shadow of the Golden Gate Bridge, Homepolish designer Hannah Collins was able to bring that signature bayside haze into the color scheme of a couple's home.

Google images of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge. The towering red-painted steel suspension bridge pops up in multiples all over your computer screen, but what’s that? Yep. Fog billowing into the San Francisco Bay, clouding over everyone’s perfect shot of the landscape. Just moments from the landmark, a young couple, Neha and Neelav, had purchased a 3-bedroom house in the Marina District. Weathered dark floors and nondescript beige walls made for a space that was dingy and uninteresting. Homepolish designer Hannah Collins redesigned the house to properly reflect the Bay Area and the couple’s taste.
Gray scale tones dominate the paint throughout the home, reminiscent of the San Francisco sky. Instead of reading gloomy, it comes across as airy and serene. Other accents and furniture choices are perfect for a coastal town: raw wood finishes, grass cloth, and sheer curtains diffusing the light.

Neha and Neelav wanted a space that felt serene and calm but had bits and touches of glamour. By integrating textured, rustic wood tones with higher gloss finishes, we created a nice balance of richness and luxe.- Hannah Collins, Homepolish designer
