Weekends lately have been spent working on my own home design projects – figuring out where to put artwork, adding another coat of paint to Baby Flemming’s room (don’t worry, Eric is doing that) and then playing around with furniture placement and design ideas for his room. This past weekend there was one of the “AHA” moments when it came to his room – before we knew about this little guy I completely designed our spare room as a guest bedroom. I’ve been trying my best to keep this room as a guest/baby room but with everything that comes with a baby I don’t think it’s possible. Plus, I want it to feel like a place he can play in. I’ve been culling through magazines, Pinterest and popping into stores to find what I want to do. After some brainstorming sessions with my mom, we finally had an amazing idea. I can’t wait to share it with all of you when the nursery is done, but I can say I want to move into his room. It’s going to be the best room in the house. As long as we can pull this idea off.
So with that inspiration in hand, I’m ready to tackle my clients design projects with full vengeance this week. I hope all of you have a productive week ahead!

After a whirlwind week in Raleigh, NC, it was such a treat coming home. While I feel incredibly lucky to be able to travel and discover new places there is nothing I love more than being back home. This weekend we escaped the fog and headed up to Marin for some sunshine, enjoyed an early morning run to the farmers market, and then spent the majority of the weekend planning out baby Flemming’s nursery. Lately I’ve felt like I’m constantly working on client projects that I haven’t had time to sit down to really brainstorm my own home. This was such a treat and definitely got me re-energized for the new week that lies ahead.
I hope all of you have a splendid week!

The past week was quite incredible – all of the heartfelt comments and congratulations from everyone brought Eric and I so much joy. A huge thank you to everyone. Sharing our baby news with you was such a treat.
Over the weekend we escaped the city to get some much needed sunshine – San Francisco has been covered in gray fog for days. It was so blissful getting some much needed vitamin d. Yesterday, I ventured to the Alameda Flea Market for treasure hunting. I hadn’t been in months – although I didn’t find any treasures, it was nice to see what is out there that can get you inspired.
We recently recovered this antique chair (above) in Madeline Weinrib fabric – I absolutely adore it! It’s amazing the transformation you can make on something you already own with stunning fabric.
Cheers to a new week – I’m en-route to Raleigh, NC to teach at The School of Styling.

Today I’m excited to announce that Eric and I have embarked on a new chapter of our life together. We’re welcoming a baby boy into the world in late December! We have pretty much been on cloud nine ever since we found out. It’s been incredibly hard to keep it a secret for this long.
Back in April I was blindsided with all day nausea while on a business trip to Dallas. Then came a whole month of not being able to look at a computer – it was not a fun month, but I just kept thinking “it’s all for this little nugget that I will be able to hold soon.” Luckily, the nausea (for the most part) is gone and I’m back to my old self – except with the desire to spend every waking hour nesting and my craving for pickles, fruit and tons of veggies.
I’ll be sharing little bits of inspiration, tips and nursery progress here on Sacramento Street. But until then, I’ll be revving up the inspirational content for y’all. Pardon the past few months and I appreciate you all for hanging in there without knowing what the heck was going on!
We can’t wait to become a family of three!

Happy Monday friends! This weekend was filled with culinary delights. Saturday we ventured down to the ballpark for the first annual 7×7 Magazine food festival. They gather all of the best restaurants in the city to showcase their favorite dish. Let me tell you, everything was delicious and I now have a list a mile long of places to go. This is an event I’ll be attending every year. We then had a dinner party with close friends to reminisce about our trip to Turkey – we created a huge feast with appetizers that brought back incredible memories. Looking back, it’s weekends like this that make staying a home even sweeter.
What did all of you do this weekend?
This week I’ve got quite a bit in store for you – a new series with a talented friend, a new workspace I can’t wait for you to feast your eyes on, a scrumptious recipe that I’ve been making every week and much more!
Cheers to a fabulous week ahead!
