Stay: Alamo Square Victorian

San Francisco, California
03.30.2011 | by: Kelly

San Francisco-based prop stylist Rosy is in the business of creating beautiful spaces–and her Victorian home in the Alamo Square/Lower Haight is no exception. With dark douglas fir floors and architectural elements like curved glass windows in the turret and high ceilings with intricate crown moldings, the  interior is awash in bright whites, every shade of ivory and muted earth tones, providing a neutral, high-texture canvas for Rosy’s artful treasure-packed vignettes. She spends a lot of time in France and her native Switzerland, scouring the countryside for antiques and storied objects. Like a curio full of all-white china, antique chairs or her collection of vintage mirrors and portraits.

Rosy rents out the second floor for photo shoots as well as to travelers–with access to the home’s kitchen and dining room. On a recent trip to San Francisco, Rosy’s place was at the top of our list of homes to stay, but it was booked. She kindly invited us over for tea and let us tour the house anyway, explaining that she loves staying in homes when she travels and meeting people passing through San Francisco. These photos hardly do the place justice.

The Details
Price, $199 per night; Sleeps five, but $50 extra per guest beyond two. Rent it at Kids welcome.
