House Tour: Kim's Beaux Arts Beauty
I've been reading the cheeky blog Thank You For Asking, written by the very glamorous Kim, for a few months now, and after seeing a few extremely chic sneak peeks into her home, I asked if she'd be interested in giving us a house tour. Thankfully, she agreed! Kim lives in a 1920s Beaux Arts home in San Francisco's posh Pacific Heights neighborhood with her husband and three sons. It is no doubt one of the most gorgeous houses I've ever seen. More impressively, she decorated it herself!
Before moving to SF, Kim lived in London for seven years, where she sharpened her stylistic skills taking Christie's Fine Arts course. She says she picked up a lot of her furniture and artwork there, and on subsequent trips back. She also scours San Francisco's vintage furniture shops for a lot of her furnishings. She says they renovated their home with the help of architect Ken Linsteadt when they moved to SF in 1997. Their goal was to keep the beauty of the original architecture while upgrading some of the renovations done in the '70s, and they have no doubt done just that. Come take the tour, and prepare to swoon!
