Atherton is regularly ranked as one of the most expensive residential areas of the United States. San Francisco-based Leverone Design has completed several exclusive projects in the area including Atherton II that the designers describe as a close collaboration with the client.

The large house to be renovated was initially uninviting and not what the client needed in their main home. Rooms were rearranged and reconfigured to accommodate the client’s lifestyle and to give the owners’ collection of furniture and objects their well-deserved prominence.

The designers helped add art and accessories and gave the collection a tactile and calm backdrop of textured fabrics, polished metal details and various hues of stone and wood.

Avoiding the extreme of being harsh or brashly minimalist, there is an assuredly elegant lack of excess and unnecessary ornamentation.

Among the custom desks, chairs and consoles, the lighting fixtures are a special attraction. The selection includes pendants by Eva Menz Design and by the Studio of Billy Cotton who is also the Creative Director of Ralph Lauren Home. The golden sun disk sconce of Mydriaz is another striking light fixture that, although highly prominent, fits perfectly within the eclectic yet harmonious whole.
