Interior designer Katie Monkhouse's San Francisco flip. / sfgirlbybay

What happens when a designer decides to move her own family into a flipped home rather than starting from scratch? Magic. Interior designer Katie Monkhouse recently set up shop in this San Francisco flip and the results have me swooning! From the tranquil palette of rich blues and calming greens (those Heath Ceramics tiles in Ogawa green on the kitchen island — can you even?!) to the modern, minimal styling, this home is definitely not lacking in character.

Katie told Rue Magazine, I try to focus on designing spaces that are easy to live in – quality pieces that can withstand toddlers and the test of time mixed with more accessible ‘trend’ item that can be easily swapped out at the styles change. I applied the same formula to our home and, while it is still a work in progress, I really love how it’s coming together!”

Do you love the space as much as I do?
