Fabulous Room Friday 05.25.12

{Throughout this home, and especially here, in the living room, you’ll notice that modern silhouettes are beautifully mixed with classic antiques, such as the commode and the chairs in the photo above.}

This ultra-chic living room is part of a 9,000 square foot San Francisco home designed by Ken Fulk belonging to a prominent art collector and philanthropist. Naturally, each room features striking artwork and this living room is no exception. While the entire home is definitely worth seeing—it is featured in the current issue of Interiors, I particularly love the living room for the beautiful details, sumptuous textures, and glamorous objects Fulk chose to fill it with.

{Fulk painted the walls a grey-blue hue to give the effect that the famous San Francisco fog has made its way in. The large canvas of clouds by Carla Klein provides a stunning vista within the room. By the way, how amazing is the enormous coffee table?}

Pretty stunning, no? Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!

I originally liked the hand, but now that you mention the Addams Family, Val, I totally see it!

I love the giant coffee table and the mix of textures even though it's a fairly monochromatic room.
