Nestled in the heart of San Francisco, this isn't your ordinary farmhouse, it's an urban farm house. See how these homeowners transformed their city space into a cozy home with a cottage-French twist.
Gingerbread railings and classic French doors greet guests in this pretty foyer. To add a personal touch the homeowner hung her wedding dress as a piece of art above the small French table.
Just inside the front door, a weathered medical cabinet stores dog-walking essentials and welcomes guests with a fresh vase of flowers.
A set of white dishes are tucked into a blue china hutch that was found at a flea-market.
The delicate pastel glazes of handmade dishes created by a local artisan lift everyday china out of the ordinary.
Distressed doors form the base of the shabby chic platform bed, while a large-scale antique mantel, worn and weathered, serves as an impromptu headboard. Large-scale letters of the homeowner's initials stand on top the makeshift headboard.
Lilac sprigs slipped into antique druggist and perfume bottles add instant touches of beauty on the vanity.
The carefree gardens spilling over onto stone steps and a rock walkway give this home the feeling of European countryside rather than being a few blocks from a busy retail and business district.
