Bold Modern Victorian

It was an absolute treat to work with this creative young couple on their modern home in San Francisco that was once a very traditional Victorian home, but still retained some of the original charm.

It was important to add textures to bring a soft shell around some of the more modern furnishings and colorful accents. We wallpapered the living room fireplace with a gorgeous cork material, the office in a trompe l’oeil faux bois pattern, and the primary bedroom in a golden tan grasscloth. This created the perfect backdrop to marry their tastes of bold modern pieces and relaxed artistic styles.

Greens, rusty tones, and bold blue accents were our favorite tones for their spaces as it fit their personalities perfectly and allowed us to add color while still keeping an all over tranquil feeling.

We always love an opportunity to join a client’s styles with the home’s architecture, and it was important that we enveloped details of the exterior Victorian aesthetic with their bold interiors. This was truly a fun project to play with all aspects of the design to create the perfect home for our clients.


 “Lorri’s work is the perfect combination of fun and practical. She is creative and has no shortage of good ideas, and will make a point to understand your preferences. She spent so much time working with me through design boards and approaches to help me establish my own design style. In light of my preferences, Lorri curated a space full of nature and culture from my travels. The space is artsy yet livable and I spend more time at home than I ever thought possible!”


“Lorri helped us pick our tiles in the new bathroom and it is just gorgeous. Everybody pays me compliments for my good taste I will certainly use her services again.”


“Lorri of HC Interior Design is a creative enigma. She will transform a space into something you actually miss when you’re away and feel excited to come home to. Lorri’s ability to visualize and layer colors, patterns, textures, you name it – is truly amazing. She can also cater to a neutral/minimalist vibe if that’s your thing. Lorri has helped me design two homes and will be there for any future moves, no matter where they are!”


“My wife and I worked with Lorri & her amazing team at Hicks Cazenave Interior Design on our home remodel and full furnishings here in San Francisco – we cannot rave enough! They took the time to really understand what we wanted in our design, they truly listened to our budget and helped us make the best decisions for design and our family. Lorri and her team communicated often and were on site to help with all of the remodel construction phases. We feel so lucky to have worked with their team and will definitely be reaching out for the next project – Thank you HC Interior Design!”

One might not think of adorning their kitchen walls with artwork, but it can thematically tie the space together. For our client at the Four Seasons Residences, we chose this stunning piece of art featuring dreamy pops of green and blue for their kitchen. It adds a splash of color to this neutral, sleek kitchen, where we married antique and modern elements. 

Art in the kitchen can serve as great conversation pieces, create an inviting space, and showcase a client’s personality/passions. You can never have too much art. 💙💚

Lorri approached the design of our new brick-and-mortar space with a distinct vision. Firstly, she wanted to show our clients how to balance sophistication and playfulness in the same space. She also hoped to challenge them to push their creative boundaries in their own homes – think jewel tones and bold patterns. 

Of course, no Hicks Cazenave Interior Design space would be complete without an incorporation of contemporary and vintage elements. It matches the vibrant energy of the Hayes Valley neighborhood, too. ✨🌈

Art can really elevate a living room. It can add a bold pop of color, creating a space for play, or evoke an air of sophistication. 

We sourced unique pieces from bespoke/vintage showrooms and abroad for this young family at the Four Seasons Residences in downtown San Francisco. The edgy, playful art seamlessly blends with their home, punctuating the design embellishments referencing their recent vacations and penchant for travel. 🖼️🖌️

We love infusing a space with our client’s personality; an effective way to do that is to incorporate accessories. For example, our client from the Four Seasons Residences in downtown San Francisco loves traveling and was inspired by raw materials, textures, woven colors, and ocean views. 

These accessories celebrate this client’s passions and are a lovely reminder of fond memories of their favorite vacations abroad, which they can relive every day. 🌊🌴

Recently, the HCID team had the privilege of attending the 45th Annual San Francisco Decorator Showcase. Located on “Billionaire’s Row” in Pacific Heights, this showcase highlights established and emerging designers. We were blown away by the talent on display – the courage to push the bounds of creativity, the blend of bold and delicate elements, and the mansion’s overall design aesthetic. ✨🖼️

We love playing with natural light and how it suffuses a space. Opening up a space to infuse natural light can change what materials and colors we use. Those elements might look different in natural light than in artificial light. 

This charming window seat in the living room of our Victorian house client maintains that classical aesthetic while bringing modern furnishings and colorful accents into the fold. Natural light is an instant mood lifter. 🪟 ☀️
