Margaret Ash Design
To live in Napa Valley is to be immersed in a storied region replete with postcard-like scenery composed of rolling hills and long rows of grapevines. Those features were a natural draw for a young San Francisco couple looking for a vacation home, but finding the right house was, for a time, a challenge. "The options they considered weren't inviting. They were all white and sterile, "recalls designer Margaret Ash, who had previously worked on the couple's San Francisco and Mendocino homes.
This classic Victorian home in San Francisco's Pacific Heights was given a fresh update with clean, soft neutrals taking advantage of the abundance of natural light that fills the space.
Before starting her own firm in San Francisco, Margaret honed her skills and curated her unique style by designing for the some of the most influential interior designers and architects known to date: Kelly Wearstler, Amanda Nisbet, Elizabeth Bauer, Kendall Wilkinson, and Meyer Davis Studio.
