    • Victorian Chic

      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.

    • Original Details

      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.

    • Welcome Home

      Just inside the front door, a weathered medical cabinet stores dog-walking essentials and welcomes guests with a fresh vase of flowers.

    • Farm House Chic

      An elegant candelabra and a crystal chandelier team up with a florist's pail, a farmhouse table, and deck chairs for a mix-and-match look that's farmhouse fresh and bistro sophisticated.

    • Flea-Market Hutch

      A set of white dishes are tucked into a blue china hutch that was found at a flea-market.

    • Mix and Match Elegance

      The living room's eclectic style pairs upholstered French chairs, white slip cover sofas, and a found mantel to displace other vintage finds like a mannequin torso.

    • Simple Accessories

      The delicate pastel glazes of handmade dishes created by a local artisan lift everyday china out of the ordinary.

    • Out-of-the-Ordinary Shelf

      A ladder from an old barn takes on a new life as a multi-tiered display unit for books and colorful enamel pitchers.

    • Personal Touches

      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.

      Floral Touches

      Lush Garden

      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.

      Outdoor Living

      An upholstered French loveseat dresses up the front porch, which overflows with containers of foxglove and delphinium.

      Cozy Touches

      Also on the front porch, a weather-beaten bistro table holds old-fashioned perennials, iron bird folk art, and an armillary sphere, which points the way to San Francisco Bay.
