Modern Style

Kendall Wilkinson Design specializes in modern interior design. Our experience in modern interior design ranges from offices to residential apartments to large family homes. We have designed modern spaces in San Francisco, Marin, Napa Valley, Sonoma Valley as well as multiple other locations.

  • Bellota

  • Sculptural Modern

    Referencing the surrounding landscape, this Silicon Valley home was a labor of love for the owner, a consummate collector. Nestled in a lush setting, the colors used in the design echo the terrain while natural stone lends a rough hewn quality to the project. Contrasting with the organic materials, the exquisitely crafted furniture and art creates a vibrant focus and reflects the owners’ passion.

  • Modern Natural

    This 1920’s Pacific Heights dwelling focuses on modern elements and showcases impressive views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Palace of Fine Arts. While the design palette was kept neutral, orange accents are used playfully throughout the home. The stunning space feels quintessentially California, exemplifying indoor/outdoor living and indulging the family’s love of entertaining and sports.

  • Venture Capital Firm

    Located in the bustling Jackson Square neighborhood of San Francisco is this boutique venture capital firm. The firm is modern yet honors the architectural elements of the historic building through exposed brick work and beams, and original window mullions. Contemporary furnishings are set off with bright orange accents, and the main room features a grand kitchen. A large airy conference room, private offices, and a “Mad Men” room with a stocked bar surround the main area.

  • Vallejo Street

    European excursions inspire the designs of Kendall Wilkinson from time to time. Such was the case with her design of this grand living room designed for a San Francisco vignette. The custom curved button-tufted sofa reflects the moody gray-blue of the ocean and sky. The hand carved doors and vintage fireplaces of Old World Chalets compliment contemporary statements including a custom infinity mirror, sculptural tables, and a stunning elk skull crafted in bronze.

  • Bay View Apartment

    Nestled within one of San Francisco’s historic neighborhoods resides this Zen-like home. Wrap around windows reveal a panoramic view of the Bay. A palette of misty grays and cool tones was selected to mimic the fog rolling in across the evening sky. The understated elegance of this décor sets the stage for the client’s exquisite art collection. Modern style is found throughout the home, such as a plush mohair on the club chairs and the Piero Lissoni gloss on the dining table.

  • Palladian High-rise

    Once a hard-edged Modernist penthouse, the home is now an airy retreat. Kendall Wilkinson gave the abode’s light-filled rooms and meticulous craftsmanship a jolt with clean, modern furniture and graphic designs. The palette was simple: black, white, anthracite, and charcoal. A checkered marble floor sets the stage for a sofa in dark green velvet and chrome-plate Italian chairs. Views of San Francisco abound through curtain-less windows. Custom crystal chandeliers and sconces add shimmer and elegance throughout.

  • Luxe Showcase

    A request from Luxe Magazine led to this cinematic “night crawlers’” hangout for the Maison de Luxe showcase. Benches suspended in mid air, asymmetrical upholstery and wall-to-wall infinity mirrors define this pergola lounge design. Mercury blue and soft gold pillows soften up the space, as metallic leaf papers provide a modern spin on an Old World technique. Fashion images by the renowned Norwegian photographer Solve Sundsbo are splashed throughout.

  • San Francisco High-Rise

    Tucked high above a busy city with bright lights and tourists, this luxury apartment melds African American and Asian cultures to create a home rich in family heritage. Sophistication and comfort are achieved throughout by using earth tones, interesting color transitions and graphic prints. Contemporary furniture, upholstered in mohair and linen, adds warmth to the surroundings. A Pablo Picasso lithograph and a pair of Bakota Knives are two of the many unexpected artifacts gracing the beautiful surroundings.
