What I Love About My Home


I'm on the top floor of an apartment building at the top of a hill, so the city views out my window are unbeatable. I also love the vintage details that make San Francisco apartments so unique - parquet wood floor, arched entries, and all kinds of funky built-ins.

Biggest Challenge in Furnishing My Home


Simply getting the furniture up 3 stories and into the unit was quite a challenge! The outlets are also located in bizarre and inconvenient places, which made it tough to figure out how to arrange the lamps and electronics.

I like this a lot. Everything is calm and well-edited. It feels peaceful, not overstuffed. With views like this, you don't want to try and compete with them with. Nice!

I'm embarassed at how much your apartment looks like mine (down to tiny details)! Let me know if you ever want to swap and spend a weekend in Miami!

Needless to say I love your place. Not only are you blessed with a beautiful apartment in San Francisco (sigh) but you have impecable taste. If I say so myself.

Beautifully understated. It must feel wonderful to come home and relax. Love it!

Can someone tell me what clips she's using to hang the posters? Love them and they seem very utilitarian.

Your space is understated and lovely. I like the San Francisco prints above the sofa and wonder where they are from? Also like the rug too. It's a nice, calming space to come home too. Well done.

Great style! I especially love the reading nook with the globe and mirrored side table. Wish I could have seen your kitchen too!

After spending a weekend in the "city" I am inspired by all things SF. What a beautiful apartment and use of space. I too would love to know where the chaise comes from, the placement is excellent, I will probably do the same.
