    Bohemian Reveries :: Gitane :: San Francisco

    Interior designer Charles Doell of Mister Important Design completed the bohemian chic & funky interior design of Gitane restaurant, situated in one of San Francisco's signature neighbourhood, the swanky Nob Hill. Gitane was named after the freewheeling gypsy. In our opinion, Gitane is an 'oeuvre d'art' in interior design.

    The interior decor of Mr. Important Design unabashedly integrates vibes from three separate decades — the Euro-themed 50's, Hippie-Driven 60's and Big Bling 70's, giving the space a traditional yet modern, eclectic feel.

    Specialty upholstery fabrics designed by Nina Campbell paired with furnishings from Anthropolgie and Tom Dixon round out the rooms. 

    An elevated bar program pairs these exotic tastes and sensations with unique Sherries, Cavas, Madeiras, Spanish brandies, innovative hand-crafted cocktails and small-estate wines.

    Artwork from Turkey and the U.K. flank the walls, highlighted by Nazif Topçuoglus’ Goya-esque tapestries. The interior mixes freely. 

    Vintage art assemblage of Deborah Bowness's hand printed wallpapers, riffs on French mid-century design by way of two huge “pearl choker” chandeliers, antique lighting that has been collected from various sources throughout Europe, luxe fabrics that speak of a more genteel and romantic era; all shimmering under a glossy polymer canopy that reflects the spectacle below like a soft crimson mirror - Gitane

    Chef Bridget Batson creates thoughtful dishes inspired from the Iberian peninsula, located on the southwest tip of Europe. Batson's cuisine incorporates regional flavor profiles from Spain, Portugal, Southern France and neighboring Morocco.
