In 2012 I furnished our first loft in San Francisco. I was so proud of it then – a tad embarrassed by it now, but I thought it’d be fun to walk down memory lane with you! This is a reminder that your style is ever evolving (and hopefully in my case improving!!). So keep at it until you create the space you love (case in point).

I can’t believe it: the loft is on Design*Sponge today! Grace kindly featured our little ole’ loft as part of her Home Tour series and I’ve been overwhelmed by the kind responses. In all honesty,  I was really dang nervous to invite the masses to see what I still consider a work in progress, but it’s been really uplifting to hear what you think!

I know the kind words are due to the stunning photography of Bonnie Tsang. I feel incredibly lucky to have had the opportunity to work with her. A dream come true, really.  And there was just so much good stuff that didn’t make the Design*Sponge cut, I couldn’t help but share a few more of my favorite images!

Creating a home in San Francisco has been such a satisfying experience. I’m also so excited to tell you all about the process. I’ve got big plans, with things like before and afters, how-to’s, favorite resources and more in-depth looks at the decor details we’re really loving right now.  Those posts are all on the way!

In the meantime, I just have to give a quick shout out to some of my favorite resources that have help me make our loft a home! They include HD Buttercup, West Elm, LampsPlus and Rugs USA and amazing small shops and artists including, Pip and Estella, Stone Textile, Designer Fluff, the GRQP, Jennifer Ament Art, Birch SF and that’s just to start!

Thanks again for all the support luvies. This blogging community…there are no words to explain what it means to me!

    1. I’d love to get a real retrospective– what about these pictures embarrass you? what would you do differently in the space now? What do you like about them? I’m fascinated by how an individual’s style evolves and think that would be a great post.

      1. Thanks a great suggestion Meg. Adding that to my editorial calendar for September!
