Interior designer Benjamin Dhong uses a monochromatic palette and a wonderful collection of art in this comfortable and serene home in San Francisco.   Dhong covered the sofa in a fabric the same color as the wall allowing the sofa to almost disappear, leaving the room with a more spacious appearance.  The large bedside table in the bedroom is substantial enough for everything the owner needs to have close at hand.

I will admit that this home is a favorite of mine because of all of the stunning sculptures.  The large piece in the living room and the piece on the bedside table are exceptional.  ENJOY!

Please pray for those who lost loved ones in Alabama and surrounding states yesterday.
It was a horrible  2 days.  249 confirmed dead in Alabama, and the number is expected to grow.

See you soon,

You know I love a good neutral palette! This one is a real beauty.

Glad you are safe from the devastation and that your loved ones are as well.

Teresa you always have the best eye for fabulous design. Benjamin weaved magic in this home with his neutral brush but it is not boring. Truly lovely. Have a great morning tomorrow watching the royal wedding. I wish I had a group of gals to watch it with that are royal watchers too.

Cheers my dear xo

Does anyone know what the object on the beside table is?

Courtney, I saved a picture so that I could make a replica in ceramics. I saw it discussed somewhere but can't remember. I will see if I can find it.

The object on the bedside table was a wooden gothic model of a spire...from Wisteria! The table needed texture and some height. Thank you for a lovely post Teresa!
