This is Jony Ive's master bedroom...



Where is all the aluminum???

Sotheby's International took a peek inside Jony Ive's 7,274 square foot San Francisco mansion (valued at $17 million dollars). It's a interesting (and kind of creepy) look at the personal taste of one of this generation's most influential industrial designers.

For a guy who is heralded for so much with design this is the most generic "rich person" house I've seen. I was expecting a lot more modern, with less stuff and furniture. It just looks like a fancy hotel.

That's my take as well! I may love how he's designed my phone and computer, but stay away from suggesting how to improve my living space, please.

I'll be honest though, I would have thought we'd at least seen a TopBrewer built into some counter top! But alas... www.scanomat.com­/int­/topbrewer­/introduction

Not even a fancy hotel... They tend to have much more interesting interiors than this.

It may not be aluminum, but that's still quite monochromatic.

Not my taste in design, but then again if I had $17 million for a place that could change

Sooooo generic looking (and not in a cool way)... like a middle-brow hotel room, or a picture of bed coverings in a 1970s Sears catalog... >
