When Allison bought her San Francisco home, she’d often look out the window and daydream about the people who previously lived in it. They lived through the 1906 and 1989 earthquakes, she thought to herself [the home was built between the 1890s and 1904]. “I despise the current trend of attempting to turn these iconic San Francisco row houses into modernist glass-staired shells,” Allison says. “I thought about the house as if one family had lived here continuously since 1895 and kept layering with each generation.” It was this respect for the home’s rich history that shaped her design point of view, and resulted in a bright and exuberant style that Allison describes as “Victorian on Acid.”
