A quintessential Berkeley bungalow in the west flatlands, built in 1940s by an architect for his aging mother. Gorgeous gardens surround this tiny but adorable home. As it was a rental we didn’t make any major renovation changes just worked with the space and the client’s sacred collections. There is a fine line between layered and cluttered and the art of display is finding that delicate balance. Such a bohemian expression is not everyone’s cup of tea but for those who wish to be surrounded by all the things that are precious to them it is an immense source of comfort and inspiration.
