Home – Designed for You: Ian Stallings


People always ask what my aesthetic is, or what the style is. Because I really
am focused on what’s appropriate for
the physical space and who the
end user is, in my situation it’s really, truly,
bringing out the client and what their
personality is. I’m not inflicting my
perspective onto the client. I’m Ian Stallings and
I specialize in interior design for high-end
luxury residential homes. I got into the
design world after I studied filmmaking,
painting, and design at the California College of Arts. I studied Art History at
the Chicago Art Institute and painting at the
San Francisco Art Institute. On my very first
project, I was excited. She had a beautiful
Edwardian cove ceiling that didn’t have
any transition. We painted the entire
room, ceiling included, a really rich blue, and
hung a modern chandelier in the center of this
Edwardian space. The thing that she was
the most timid to do– the biggest, boldest move– was the thing she
ended up liking the most. We get to go to a lot
of interesting places and do a lot of
interesting things. New York, San Francisco,
Pacific Palisades, Woodside, all through Silicon Valley,
and all the reaches of it. Golden Gate Sotheby’s
International Realty and Ian Stallings Design are very similar in
a lot of respects. We are providing
services for our clients that are exceptional. The houses and
the properties demand a lot of
attention to detail. Golden Gate Sotheby’s
International Realty really understands those
kinds of properties, and how those relate
to a good designer. Together, we artfully unite extraordinary homes
with extraordinary people.
