Designer Palmer Weiss

Yesterday, I was reading Gorgeous Shiny Things, and she mentioned this designer... So I did a little digging and here are some of the rooms that I found these rooms that she and her design team have completed. Can you say yum? Yummmmm....









Aren't they gorgeous?? Here's a little background on Palmer, taken from her website.

Palmer Weiss is a San Francisco-based interior designer. Raised in Charleston, South Carolina, Weiss credits her Southern roots as a major influence on her design aesthetic. She admires the way Southerners embrace their family heritage, formality and tradition in their homes but are also not afraid to express a few of their eccentricities as well. This rich background, combined with 14 years of living in Northern California, has allowed her to develop a unique style that both respects tradition and embraces new ideas. A mother of two young children, Weiss also understands the need for a home to be as functional as it is beautiful. Never one to give into trends, Weiss is known for creating timeless, modern and livable interiors with her signature bursts of color and a little bit of that Southern eccentricity thrown in for fun.

Interiors and architecture are in Weiss’ blood. With an accomplished interior designer for a mother and a father in real estate development, Weiss spent much of her childhood touring construction and job sites. Though she was always toiling away in her mom’s sample closets and dissecting design trade magazines for inspiration, Weiss didn’t formalize her design career until 2002. Instead she held jobs in investment banking and retail merchandising. She believes her experience in the business world has helped her immensely in managing client budgets and meeting key project deadlines. She feels these attributes are as important to a successful client relationship as making inspired creative choices.

Weiss attended Choate Rosemary Hall boarding school, Brown University with a BA in History of Art, and received her MBA at J.L. Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University. She resides in San Francisco with her husband, a cardiologist, and their two small children.

And yeah. She's pretty much amazing. You can check out more of her work and see how many dreamy spaces she's created.
