Global Elements In The Entryway
Interior designer Leslie Price has a passion for designing light-filled, open spaces that are influenced by nature. For the San Francisco designer, that's not hard when the homes she designs are surrounded by the beautiful, natural splendor of California. It's nature, and the environment of the Pacific Rim that inspired this project - the design of an East Bay home located in Moraga, California. With a focus on global elements, and bringing together a melange of Asian cultures, this Bay Area home is a celebration of color, art, and textiles that can be found in some of the most beautiful countries in the world. Price has found a way to mix these classics with flea market finds and works from local designers, like wallpaper from San Francisco-based company, Hygge & West, that brings the color of rain to the home's entryway.Continue to 2 of 7 below.

Atop the table, vintage vases and vessels from China add to the home's aesthetic.
