San Francisco designer creates posh, hotel-like interior for English client

Published


Interior designer Benjamin Dhong had clear instructions from his client when it came to reimagining 3157 Steiner St. in Cow Hollow. His client, who hailed from Great Britain, wanted a chic, hotel-like ambience that would foster conversation and offer comfort.

“It’s sophisticated, fun and sexy,” said Dhong, principal of Benjamin Dhong Interiors. “It has a London hotel vibe and there’s a mix of modern and antique details.”


Offering roughly 4,400 square feet of living space the five-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom versatile floor plan makes it ideal for sharing with friends.

“I’m a big believer that rooms should serve multiple purposes,” Dhong said. “It’s important that rooms have multiple functions.”



This philosophy is evidenced in the great room, which includes a kitchen island, dining area and family room.

Contemporary, monochromatic wallpaper adorns the foyer, giving it a feel akin to a hotel lobby. In addition to leading to public rooms, the foyer also steps into the home’s wine cellar.
