Sunset Idea House in Berkeley

September 4, 2016 § Leave a comment

Idea Houses are like decorator show houses for engineers.

Besides beautiful finishes, they showcase state of the art technology for today’s home. This years’s idea house does this in spades.

Nestled in the hills of Berkeley above the historic Claremont Hotel, this year’s house was designed by architect Robert Nebolom with interiors by Geremia design.

We have been lucky enough to provide artwork for The Healdsburg Sunset House in 2012, which was a very cool Bluhome.  As well as for the Coastal Living House on Coronado Island in 2014.  So we were delighted to hear that this year, the house is in our own backyard.

This makes sense as Sunset Magazine has moved their HQ from Menlo Park to Oakland’s now thriving Jack London Square. In former editor Peggy Northrup’s editorial explaining their move, she tells readers that Sunset is ‘following the reader’ from the burbs to the city.  Sunset’s offices moved from the city of San Francisco to Menlo Park in 1951, as an entire generation was fleeing cities and moving to the suburbs. In a sea change, new urbanism is here and many are choosing to return to urban hubs where culture is abundant. It is a phenomenal testament to our (then Mayor of Oakland, now 2x CA Governor) Jerry Brown that downtown Oakland has turned the corner from night-time ghost town to thriving arts and food destination.

Our posters can be seen on the top floor of the house, flanking the elevator. The frames are our latest off white and were framed by The Studio Shop.
