The kitchen and family room are the heart of the home, full of life with her son and daughter’s artwork and presence. Versatile furniture, bold color and pattern and unique pieces from around the world make for a lively place for eating, playing and learning.
Jeannie Fraise designed their infant daughter and son’s bedrooms to be crisp and playful, yet ageless and modern without prescribing to child-like style. She celebrated her children’s Vietnamese and Chinese cultures through modern Asian art and spirited furnishings, mixing artisan aesthetics with mid-century furniture upholstered in vibrant, graphic textiles. The clear, crisp colors connect the joyful essence of all three bedrooms.
The exterior spaces allow for more enjoyment of the great weather of which the Mission district proudly boasts. The lower garden and playhouse are seen from Jeannie’s home office work space, that houses two desks, many a filing cabinet, and where organization and tidiness abound to make great use of space, including a full set of shelves tucked into what used to be a closet. The beautiful view of garden and play keep her feeling inspired and creative!
With a full expansive view of the cityscape from the porch just attached, this is indeed the center of this warm and comfortable San Franciscan home.
