San Francisco Eclectic by Susan Diana Harris


Susan Diana Harris is nothing if not bold. I’d use stronger language, but this is a family blog. She’s not interested in anything that doesn’t make a clear, loud statement, and she’s not afraid to take chances, either. And that combination can lead to some really cool interior spaces, like this San Francisco loft.


This place is in what is possibly the coolest part of the city. The study (above, with blue chalkboard paint and the most awesome light fixture EVER) is classic SDH design. You can’t walk in there without going, “Whoa….”
That was my reaction, anyway…

But in the converted industrial space that comprises most of the loft, Susie took all the energy that she would ordinarily put into the wall treatments and focused it instead on the floors.



This was not a complete remodel — she and her team had to work with existing floors (including the high gloss finish), existing kitchen, and much else. But this place has her stamp on it, for sure. You can see an installation photo HERE.


We wrapped with a shot of the bedroom, done in what might be the most mellow tones Susie has ever assembled. But of course, a giant gorilla….

  1. I like the solution for the floor of the open plan area, the carpets and the lines are creating somehow an order and directions within the huge space…. also like the selection of the art work in the bed room Amy Dresser monkey portrait 😉

  2. Well, technically speaking I think that’s actually an orangutan.
