Sacramento Street

Living With Great Style

a brand new design . . .

Over the past few months I’ve been working away on this big reveal. I’m not sure how to describe how excited I am about this redesign – overjoyed, giddy, and a slight of nervousness. I can honestly say that I never thought Sacramento Street would come to a point where I needed to – stop, think about the brand, decide where I wanted it to go in the future and redesign the space where all of you come to get inspired daily. But there came a time where I felt like a change was needed. Back in March I met up with my graphic designer to dream up the design. First and foremost I wanted the space to reflect more of my aesthetic – clean, crisp and timeless. As I look at the new site I think we did just that.

I’d like to give a big huge thank you to the lovely Nicole that designed exactly what I was envisioning and to Brendan my go-to developer. Without him it would still be in Photoshop on my computer.

I hope all of you enjoy the design as much as I do. With a new space comes some new series – check back Wednesday for the latest.

a brand new week . . .

This weekend was all about enjoying friends company and having a lot of downtime to relax at home – these days, that doesn’t happen very often. It was just the weekend I needed – seeing girlfriends, cooking at home and opening up a book. It was quite blissful.

A few things I’m loving – a new hand towel, recipes cards (both a birthday present from Mrs E), new wrapping tape, and peonies are everywhere (twitter, instagram and blogs). I couldn’t resist posting these beauties because they are making my house smell utterly divine. 

Now that June is underway I want to welcome two new sponsors to Sacramento Street – Lo & Sons is back and they’ve got some incredible new colors and styles (pop back Wednesday for a giveaway with them). And Vero Linens is a brand new sponsor and let me tell you – their sheets are heavenly. It’s like going to sleep in a soft cloud. Big thank you to both sponsors for being part of the blog this month.

Have a wonderful Monday friends!

a brand new week . . .

Monday has arrived and although I’m excited for what it has in store, it’s a little bittersweet because this weekend was wonderful. It was filled with spending time with family which was blissful, going to my favorite shops that I miss dearly (found a new favorite – Unaand most importantly, celebrating the marriage of my brother-in-law and new sister-in-law – I’m so happy she’s officially part of the family. I wish the weekend could have lasted longer. 

A few things I’ve been loving – this stunning fabric we might use in a clients home, an oldie but goodie necklace that I can’t stop wearing, windy SF days have called for bundling up with my charcoal scarf and lastly, this stunning notebook was given to me at Catherine Kwong’s SF Decorators Showcase soiree (it’s already filled with little to-do lists)

Cheers to a new week – I have a feeling it’s going to be a good one since a three day weekend is in my future.

a brand new week . . .

This weekend was blissful – days were spent by the pool in Calistoga, dinner at Press was delightful (huge thanks to Sam of Sequin Harvest for the reservation and bubbly) and ending the weekend waking up to find a feature I was anticipating being so much more than I expected. It was incredibly well written and to be on the front page of the San Francisco Chronicles Home & Garden section with my mom on mothers day was so special. To read the full article pop over here.

A few things I’m loving – fresh produce from the farmers market, adding that last layer of jewelry to my daily outfits and my new favorite thing . . . March Pantry’s olive oil – drizzle it on anything and it’s utterly divine.

How was your mothers day weekend? I hope all of you celebrated the special women in your life.

Cheers to a new week upon us and check back here a little later this morning. I’ll be sharing something you won’t want to miss.

a brand new week . . .

Cheers to a new week! This weekend was all about enjoying the beautiful weather we were graced with here in San Francisco. I took a walk along the ocean with a view of the Golden Gate Bridge, had a successful trip to the flea market with Grant, and ended the weekend with a leisurely afternoon in a stunning rose garden – although it was jam packed, I’m sun kissed and ready to start the week.

A few things I’m loving this week – the new Rodin perfume (it’s divine), fresh flowers, and vintage gift wrapping essentials (which were a few of MANY treasures I picked up at the flea market). I wish I could have fit the chairs that I got in this image – pop over to instagram to see.

Hope all of you have a great Monday – our office is off to a all day retreat in Napa!
