I adore SF-based Emilia Ceramics ( which has a registry service ( now. Unique hand-painted ceramics from Mexico and Europe. GORGEOUS. A few friends are registered here and I loved picking out registry gifts that weren't generic big-box store items.

I loved this article (though couldn't stand the big white stencil pattern, or the stripped walls). And yes, $300 is a lot to spend for someone who is unemployed. But, environment breeds mood, and when someone is home all day trying to get work, an organized, inspiring space is REALLY important. More than anything I enjoyed the fact that most people just needed to get organized, clean, and reconsider furniture placement and use—all FREE ideas.

I adore Lisa, her husband Nick, their cute little dog, and their gorgeous Cliff May home! She has a style that's so simple, but so artsy and well edited—the kind of comfortable-gallery display look (in her little shelf displays) that would take me days (of possession purging) to achieve, but one that seems to just be part of who she is. Check out more pics from my recent visit to the home here:
