I work from home and I use Food Network as my background noise. Since there's no plot, I can "tune in" and "tune out" as needed. I've become interested in cooking as a result, and it's now one of my favorite hobbies (thank you, "Chopped"!).

I'm renting a place with open shelves, and my multicolored Fiesta Ware dishes look amazing on them. I live in earthquake country, and I'm not terribly worried about the dishes. Fiesta is sturdy, and a closed cabinet won't contain them in a real shaker anyway.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who has an accordion sitting out in the living room! It makes a lovely accessory when not being played.

I'm thinking you should hire twin girls in blue dresses to stand at the end of the hallway at all times.

Oysterbed in San Francisco has wonderful storage beds. You can even customize them. We have one and have been very happy with it.

I would have kept the "before" window treatment and mirror. I can kind of see how it looks like dripping blood, but I think out of that "before bathroom" context, it would look regal.

Sorry, wallpaper lovers, the wallpaper had to go (though it would have been great to see pictures matted with a bit of the paper), and painting the cabinetry was a good choice.

But I would have added gold/brass accessories and hardware to go along with the gilded mirror; I think it would make two little girls feel like they have their own little princess bathroom.

I knew it was Spork! I took a picture of it as well because I loved the color combination.

I have a yellow Moonbeam alarm clock. The flashing light usually does the trick, but if I don't turn it off in time it goes to the bell alarm. And that scares the crap out of me.

More love for Therapy! They're always really nice, whether you're buying a sofa, a single drapery panel, or nothing at all.

These look very similar to mine, which are by NO Moller. Definitely check out Klassik by Lynne as casiep suggested.

Apartment Therapy San Francisco | SF Good Questions: Where Can I Find These Chairs?
5/9/08 12:03 PM

We moved to San Francisco into a charming, 1100-square-foot apartment from a sprawling 2100-square-foot ranch-style home in Southern California. We still haven't got the hang of living in a smaller space (we still buy the 24-roll pack of toilet paper, for cryin' out loud). We need real-world, livable solutions we can apply to our day-to-day life so we're not tripping over our crap and each other. I was really hoping to use more hyphens in this comment.

Thanks for your consideration. I hope to hear from you if I can find my computer again.

I'm so glad you featured Lynne. I've bought several pieces from her, including a drop-dead gorgeous credenza, a dining table, and two chairs. She has impeccable taste, is extraordinarily knowledgeable and friendly, and goes the extra mile to make sure the furniture is gleaming when you get it (she delivers!).

As the post said, her prices are very reasonable. I know if I tried to buy the same pieces from one of the stores on Valencia I would have paid three times as much.

(Hmm... maybe I shouldn't be so glad you featured Lynne. Now my secret is out!)
