A newly renovated 1890’s Victorian townhouse mixes old-world charm with bold design. When Tuesdays LA co-owner Alan Ledford purchased the 3,000-square foot home in San Francisco’s Mission District, the period molding and original brickwork had been maintained, yet the house’s white walls lacked character. Designer Regan Baker and her team brought out his love of bold design through moody wallpapers, an all-green library, and graphic photographs by Michael Northrup and Sinziana Velicescu. Scroll through for the full tour.

“In the living room, a charcoal sofa with modern lines is grounded by a pair of oak and brass coffee tables. Green velvet side chairs flank a wide bay window, drawing on tones in the cheeky photograph mounted above the sofa.”
“Alan wanted a spot he could make his own with plenty of room to entertain and an edgy, quirky feel. When he moved in, it had already been renovated by a contractor with refined updates like modern cabinetry and white paint, but Regan was hired to both decorate and make the space more functional.”
“Nicknamed the Moody Mission Victorian, the design definitely encapsulates a unique feel perfect for the bachelor. There’s the hard-to-miss skeleton wallpaper from Texturae in the master bathroom, an original gas-run fixture in the foyer, moody Ellie Cashman floral wallpaper in the powder bath, and the cheeky Michael Northrup photograph she found through Uprise Art entitled 'Dad’s Last Puff'.”
