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!”
