It’s hard to miss St. Frank’s flagship store in Presidio Heights. The shop’s bright colors cut through S.F.'s trademark opaque fog, emanating the thrill of finding something special on the cobblestone streets of Oaxaca or in downtown Delhi.

A warm, West Coast aesthetic highlights how easily each traveled treasure feels right at home. Indigo pillows from Burkina Faso happily nestle into armchairs while a Día de los Muertos skull grins from a bar cart.

This interior-design daydream-come-true was founded four years ago by Christina Bryant. From living in Rwanda and studying art history at UVA to starting her career at New York’s MoMa and receiving an MBA from Stanford, Bryant seems uniquely suited to create a luxury lifestyle brand.

Her apartment in Pacific Heights is no exception, blending St. Frank’s modern bohemian vibe with fun touches from personal travel (bonjour, Cap du Roc towels!) and antique pieces rich in family history.

This exotic combination creates an inviting air for the founder whose love of hosting is only matched her passion for globetrotting. We recently visited Bryant’s abode, a prime example of how to make a city apartment feel unforgettably chic.
