Sylvester Stallone once said that, “if bad decorating was a hanging offense, there’d be bodies hanging from every tree.”  Luckily it’s not, and even if it was, interior designer David Oldroyd would not be among the casualties.  He recently completed a modernist renovation of a thirties townhouse that perfectly combines the crisp edge of modernism with the warmth of natural materials.  Located in the hills above the Castro district in San Francisco, the interior is a light-filled, purist canvas perfect for its vintage furniture, rare collections, and sensual sculptures.  Visit the Style Saloniste for additional photographs of the house.  You can view more of photographer Philip Harvey’s work at his website.
