We love that this grand San Francisco home was inspired by Le Petit Trianon (at Versailles, in France), which was inhabited by the lady of the house (Marie Antoinette). Out of this came our inspiration for “The Wo-Man Cave”. What a great opportunity to create a fem-forward space for the avantgarde woman of today. Inspired by the modern day LadyBoss who juggles many responsibilities- we imagined a space of her own to relax and rejuvenate.  As noted in Virginia Woolf’s iconic essay, “A Room of One’s Own”- women need spaces (preferably perfectly appointed) of their own to think, relax and gather inspiration.  Bright and joyful abstracted floral wallpaper anchors the space.  In contrast, the rest of the room revises traditional ideas of what a woman wants, with pieces that are a little edgy and dark, with furniture that is lounge-y, comfortable, chunky and generally less precious.   A place for more intimate gatherings and close friends, to read, enjoy a cocktail- a retreat from the formalities and pressures of daily life.  A cozy contemporary get-away. A place where all are welcomed- but designed with her in mind. We chose the Game Room because it was a real challenge, as it was previously a storage room for the ballroom furniture and didn’t have the grand appeal of the other rooms in the house.  We have resurfaced the whole room to bring it up to the level of the rest of the house, with new wood floors, dry bar, all new trim package, new lighting design, etc. Every surface is new and re-imagined.

San Francisco, CA

After graduating from UC San Diego, Kelly began her career as a young designer in San Francisco in 2001. She spent her formative years working at The Wiseman Group, where she learned the importance of quality detailing, scale and proportion, craftsmanship, love for antiques & architecture, and general business integrity that TWG is so well know for. Later in her career, she was able to contribute to the growth of Jeffers Design Group. At JDG she was a Design Principal who ran many successful projects, and managed a highly organized and well trained staff. Her love of color drew her to JDG initially, and her collaboration and friendship with Principal Jay Jeffers further inspired confidence, creativity, love for art, quality client relationships, and general excitement for design and all things of beauty.

Inspired, energetic and ready to bring no nonsense design with a rare set of skills & experience, Kelly Hohla Interiors opened for business in 2011. Over her design career, Kelly has worked on projects featured in Architectural Digest, Elle Décor, Metropolitan Home, House Beautiful, California Home and Design, Luxe and many more.
