Hey Fledgling!
We have the steel picture rails from Room & Board and they're great. Built out of one solid piece of metal and screwed onto the wall studs; these guys can hold a lot of weight. Search Shannon and Brenden on AT and see the pictures of our place and the picture rails. Good luck!

Where's the coffee table from? I love it!

Here's another great tip: Every 6 months or so, re-visit the storage space and see what you can get rid of. We often hold onto items we think we'll need for the future, when in reality we did just fine without them. If you can edit down your storage belongings you can possibly move into a smaller storage space and save some dough.

Your terrace is bigger than my whole apartment. And now I feel sad.

Ugh, I can't believe they spent money on carpet to cover up those beautiful hardwood floors.

This box set was on my Christmas list. My fingers are crossed that I get it!

I just updated my kitchen hardware with these handles. I searched for months, literally, to find something that unique and not incredibly expensive. They look awesome and were only about $1.50 a piece!

Eliasson,
The shower curtain is made by Izola and is called the Faile Shower Curtain. We bought it last year while traveling in Vancouver and now it's being sold for much more than we paid, guess we got a good deal.

Thanks for all the wonderful comments.

You can tell that she's a graphic designer; there seems to be one thing that 'pops' in each room. The light over the kitchen table is pretty funny.

This has DIY written all over it. I know I've seen round mirrors at craft store like Michael's. All you need is a strong glue, like epoxy, to adhere them onto one another and your good to go! This shouldn't be to complicated or expensive. Good luck!

Sox is right. I live in Hayes Valley which is extremely centrally located in the city (see map above), and taking public transportation to and from work generally takes about 20-30 minutes. The great thing about SF is there are many parks throughout the city that each their own unique qualities. If you're hung up on having a yard, good luck, because single family homes are harder to come by and usually more expensive. My recommendation is to live in the Hayes Valley/Duboce Triangle area. It's very dog and family friendly with great people, art, food and public transit. Good luck!

Thanks Rosygirl. We got a steal on the chandelier at a store called Propeller on Hayes St. in San Francisco because it was slightly damaged. The artist who makes it is Jason Miller and I'm sure it can be found many other places.

The shelf in the third photo was found at Room and Board. They offer different types of wood and another option for the metal. The paint colors are from Benjamin Moore but I don't have the names/numbers on hand, so sorry.

Oh God Matilde, I don't know what we'd do if we had to both sleep in a twin bed. The sleeping nook actually fits our queen bed nicely.

Hey LadyJaye: We do own our home and I hear what your saying about the entry but if we were to knock out that wall we'd be getting rid of our two closets.

Hey everyone, thanks for all your nice comments about our apartment. The couch is The Andre from Room and Board and is upholstered in Dita Maize. In regards to the storage, yes we are extremely limited. We have two closets near the entrance for our clothes and shoes and overhead storage in the sleeping nook for suitcases, extra linens and Shannon's comic books and figurines. There's also built in storage in the kitchen and bathroom which holds our cooking and cleaning supplies.
