Simple Victorian: A Timeless, Elegant Apartment

In pursuit of creative spaces, Peerspace is making unique, inspired locations discoverable for people everywhere to hold events, meetings, shoots and more. We've picked a few of our favorites to give you a look into how each space is created.

This bright apartment welcomes its interiors to ample sunlight boasting through linen curtains and filling the wide, spacious living space with an inviting atmosphere. Located just minutes away from the city’s iconic Alamo Square, the home itself is historic and has attracted the attention of local journalists and photographers.

Elements of Victorian charm are featured prominently throughout the space, giving the apartment a European feel reminiscent of the boutique hotels in Paris, Berlin, Antwerp & London.

Why this space works: Although the space doesn’t shy away from its original architecture and traditional Victorian design, it also artfully lends itself to more modern design, like the Carrara marble white-on-white kitchen and minimal use of furniture. The designer combines the two uniquely distinct styles within the same room— pairing a mantlepiece of candleholders and vintage frames with an adjacent acrylic coffee table and sleek pendant lighting. Similarly, the space uses natural light and corner windows as a way to frame statement furniture pieces like the leather Cosette Chair.

White works well as the base color to make way for the apartment’s character found in the ceiling's curvy details and Victorian chandeliers peppered throughout the home. Natural materials like leather, wood and leafy greens give respite to the monochromatic minimalism and provide a warmth that goes hand-in-hand with the space's plentiful natural light.
