Living With Great Style

a peek inside my kitchen with the everygirl

Today I’m excited to be featured on the Everygirl with Erin from Apartment 34. You’ll get a little glimpse into what it’s like to decorate and live with a big and tiny kitchen. It was so much fun working with the lovely and talented Kate Webber – her photos are incredible.

I’ve received a lot of emails asking to see my kitchen because I’ve never really featured it in my home tours. Well friends, here it is. So feast your eyes – it’s teeny tiny!

A HUGE thanks to both Alaina and Danielle for having us today!!

press: apartment therapy

A few months ago Apartment Therapy approached me about featuring our tiny abode as a house tour – I was incredibly flattered. Well friends, yesterday it graced the pages of Apartment Therapy and I’m delighted to say it got a positive response (something I was nervous about). The ever so lovely Leela Cyd Ross took the stunning photos and I thought I’d share a few outtakes here.

A few items have changed in our apartment – new coffee table and light on my desk from HD Buttercup SF (which is becoming my new go-to shop), got a new pillow for the chair in the window from West Elm (it’s SO soft) and I’ve re-arranged our West Elm bookcase.

I’d like to give a big shout out to my favorite shops to source items for my apartment – HD Buttercup SFWest ElmSummer House in Mill Valley, GrenouilleDesigner Fluff, and Erica Tanov Marin.

Be sure to head over to the feature for the entire home tour.

Thanks again for all of the amazing support friends! This blog wouldn’t be the same without you. I’ve got to say, you keep me motivated to keep inspiring you daily.

home sweet home

A few weeks ago I made some small decorating changes in our apartment that I’m excited to share with you. I added in a stunning Moroccan tray on our dining room table, created an art wall above the couch, and the best addition is our new coffee tables from HD Buttercup that I’m in l-o-v-e with! After living in our apartment for almost seven years it’s fun to do a little redecorating to make it feel clean and fresh for spring.

Style at Home: Glitter Guide Feature!

Today I’m excited to be featured on the one and only Glitter Guide. When Taylor came to me about the idea of Glitter Guide I was sold. Then she mentioned that she wanted to feature me – I was shocked. Since I’m not a style blogger I’m not used to being in front of the camera, but with the help of Taylor, Alicia and the amazingly talented Michelle Drewes, I was immediately put at ease once the shoot happened.

You sure do know how to make a girl blush with all of the kind words I’ve already received on twitter and Glitter Guide! Thanks for the support lovelies. Means the world to me!

It’s all in the details . . .

As I sat down to write this post I didn’t know where to start, how I should put it together and how much I should write. I kept looking back at the beautiful images and video by Michelle and thought “the images tell it all so how much do I really need to say.” Plus, many of you have already read details about each room on Design*Sponge. So I’ve put together one post with a ton of detailed shots, product sources and a floor plan – lots of emails came pouring in asking for all three.

A few words to describe our style: fresh, feminine, thoughtful, inviting and a mix of old and new. Our home is more of a collected look with a touch of modern. Almost everything is from the Alameda Flea Market and pieces I’ve picked up from my travels. I believe that wherever you go you should try finding something that represents what you loved about that place and bring it into your home. There is nothing I love more than a home that has treasures and pieces that actually mean something and more importantly have a story behind them. If you come into our home I have a story about each treasure I’ve found – it’s amazing to see people’s faces when they hear the many stories.

Also, one thing to note is that I got my passion for interior design from my mom. She used to take me to flea markets when we traveled to different countries – I always thought it was fascinating. She shaped my eye for finding those “hard to find” pieces and gave me a great sense of style through her aesthetic. If it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t be immersed in interior design today.

When you look at our floor plan you realize how small our apartment really is – lots of friends and family are surprised that we’ve lived in such a small space for five years, but it’s home and we haven’t gone stir crazy yet.

Thank you all again for your amazing support, lovely comments and emails about our home being featured – it truly warmed my heart and made my day, week, year! You are the best readers a gal could ask for. If you have any specific questions feel free to contact me.
