Greycork: Convenience Meets Good Design

| Sacramento Street

 

In my design business, I have always believed that less is more. I would rather have fewer pieces of quality than a house filled with throwaway furniture. Along with this, I find that buying from smaller companies that care about all of the details of their products can make the experience of buying items an enjoyable one. When I heard about Greycork, I knew their business model fit into my belief about design.

Greycork is a  online furniture startup producing quality furniture that brings cutting-edge design together with practical convenience. Both of the co-founders attended RISD and this is apparent in their products.

 

I have their desk and use it as my office desk. Each of these pieces arrive to your door in only five days. The top of the desk is a stunning solid wood that feels like satin. The metal legs of the table fold into the top for easy storage and it is easy to move from room to room.

Spring Launch: Rebecca Atwood’s Collection

New collections are starting to debut and one in particular that I’m excited to feature is Rebecca Atwoods spring collection. It’s no secret that I’m madly in love with Rebecca’s line – last summer I worked with her on creating custom pillows for our new apartment.

 

Each season Rebecca debuts a new collection that has me wanting to add more pillows to my living room. Soon I’ll be living in a room filled with pillows in blue hues – at least that’s what Eric keeps saying. This season she’s bringing us varying shades of marine on a textured cotton – linen blend. This blue – green hue feels lush and refreshing against soft neutrals. Perfect for a little spring refresh to any home! Rebecca wanted to create a color that was an evolution from the true blue shibori colors she has used the past two seasons. She worked with the ever so talented Emily Johnston to capture these beautiful images.

Be sure to check out Rebecca’s entire spring collection filled with two other color combinations – natural and tangerine that are equally stunning. I hope you find Rebecca’s line as inspiring as I do!

garden party . . .

With weather slowly warming there comes a fresh spring air that instantly makes me crave fresh blooms – both in and outside the house. When I came across this botanical garden photo shoot, it made me want to throw a garden soiree. Now if only I had a backyard . . . maybe a deluxe picnic in the Presidio with girlfriends is in order!

striking sun light

With the sun shining bright and the air oh-so warm, it’s time to break out long dresses, bright pops of color and of course, show off your legs. With temperatures raising to above 80 degrees in San Francisco it’s definitely the perfect opportunity to do so. What’s not to love about warm sunshine?

spring staple

Finding a sample for spring that transitions into summer is hard to find. I’ve been searching far and wide for a go-to outfit but couldn’t find anything until this week. This casual but chic ensemble was exactly what I was looking to find. The heels and leather jacket dress up the look, but the rolled up chinos and gray tee make it a little more casual for the months ahead. It must have been fate that I came across this because I just bought a pair of chinos from JCrew this weekend with a girlfriend – I left hoping to find inspiration for styling the pants, and voila, look what I came across.


I’m hoping these oxfords have a home in my closet soon! Have you found your staple look for this season?
