Inside a Designer's Girly Modern Abode

For her personal home on San Francisco’s Potrero Hill, interior designer Melanie Coddington used a style she’s dubbed Girly Modern. “It’s a mix of vintage and classic pieces with touches of glamor,” she says. She bought the 1,000-square-foot house in 2007, but has been remodeling and redecorating it ever since. “It’s my design lab,” she says, explaining why things change every three months or so. The designer also claims the diminutive size of the cottage is her discipline. “I am very strict about what I collect,” she says. “And when a house is this small, clutter is very evident, so I’ve become a neat freak.”
