Which Pantone Are You? A Closer Look at Skin Color
|7/18/12 8:58 PM|
I finally took off the rose-colored glasses when I discovered we could pay the equivalent amount of rent and spend that on a monthly mortgage note instead. The apartment was adorable, maybe around 700 sq ft and was west-facing with double paned windows. I was sandwiched between Golden Gate park and the Presidio, had a 20 min. bus ride to work, saw the Golden Gate bridge on my daily commute, and was surrounded by the most delicious Asian restaurants in SF. But now I have 2 patios, a screen door, huge updated kitchen with a dishwasher and garden window, separate living room and dinings rooms separated by the most lovely French doors, a bathroom that is not covered in Pepto Bismol colored tiles, and I could modify the place to my liking. On top of that, there are singing birds, a redwood tree, fruit trees (lemons, pears, apples, cherries), and I'm still within walking distance to great restaurants and the Berkeley Marina. The commute sucks (one hour!) but I'll take it.

A bookstore, no doubt. I used to live 5 blocks from Green Apple Books in San Francisco and I miss it terribly. It's great for last minute gift ideas and browsing!

maybe a nice patterned throw blanket to drape across the top of the couch? textured pillows too.
Will This Rug Work in My Living Room? Good Questions

Haters gonna hate. It's refreshing, dramatic, colorful...everything that most home tours on AT tend to lack. I love the textiles: the living room rug, the bedding, and the pillows. Please, more of this AT!
