Ok, so yes, my friend Sarah bought these in 2015. She told me to buy them, but I did not. She was ahead, and now I am behind.Read More
I was introduced to this up & coming SF artist by Amy Neider founder of Chloe Gallery. Isabel is an intern at the studio and will graduate from the Academy of Art in San Francisco year.Read More
And if you're headed on a jungle vacation (Bali? Costa Rica?), some cool jungle vacation photo inspiration for you below. Thanks to Sincerely Jules for these images!Read More
The manly office is close to the moody office...but without the feminine touches like fur or flowers. Not all manly offices have to be moody....but they usually do have leather.Read More
Going the opposite route of white....we have the dark moody office. I love the mix above of the glam textured light fixture, warmth of tan leather chairs, modern acrylic table, and traditional rug.Read More
Maybe you are inspired by the edgy energetic decor of the new start up offices. Bright colors, modern furniture, and cool art, will make you feel hip and trendy.Read More
A close cousin to the white cheerful girly office is the more muted/understated white minimalist modern office. A bit more serious, a bit more sophisticated.
You'll notice more natural/neutral colors incorporated instead of the bright pops.
Incorporate clean lines, mid-century modern, nothing too frilly. When in doubt, less is more.Read More
Think you don't have room for a home office? Think again! Do you have an attic? A basement? A garage? A closet? A backyard? Under the stairs?Read More
We are talking about offices this week. Maybe you work from home. Maybe you own your own business and would like to revamp your work space. Maybe you just want to daydream and look at beautiful photos and decide if you did have an office, which style would you be.
First, we start off with a style that speaks to me: girly & cheerful.Read More
Farmhouse office is another style. Do you work in wine country? Are you drawn to shabby chic or vintage or flea market finds? Do you wish you lived in Provence? You may like this style!Read More
Thanks to Fashion Jackson for her daily fashion inspiration on Instagram. Her outfits are both adorable and affordable.
I enjoyed looking at her photos from her recent Hawaii trip.Read More
Thanks to my friend Lauren for baking this delicious cake for my Easter brunch (more on the table decor later).
This cake works perfectly for a spring brunch-it's not too sweet and beautifully compliments the pastel decor. I especially liked the crystallized rosemary sprigs.Read More
If you are a parent and have a kids backyard party coming up, look how cute this is!Read More
Do you like oohlalamode but wish you had more? Do you sometimes forget the name? Does it sometimes show up for you in Facebook/Instagram, but sometimes no?Read More
Those of you who live in SF and commute down to the South Bay for work probably take 280. And you have probably seen this Flinstone's house a million times on your way home and wondered what the deal was. Have you always wanted to know what it's like inside? Well, here you go!Read More
Along with the Vietnamese Salad, I served Gwyneth's Sriracha Salmon (her photo, not mine).
It was pretty good. I still prefer my favorite salmon recipe (stay tuned for that one), but this was easy, healthy, and the flavors paired well with the salad.Read More
I made this salad for a Sunday dinner outside with friends, and everyone loved it! I served it alongside her Sriracha salmon.Read More
Well.....this one is a bit controversial. Can we wear all white now?
My Southern conservative traditional mom approves....her rule is after Easter and before Labor Day. The more traditional South may say only between Memorial Day & Labor Day (but what about Easter?). I think the rules are more relaxed these days, and the weather is weird &, so if you want to wear all white, go for it!Read More
I had heard about this pre-owned wedding dress store in North Beach. I had wanted to check it out before my wedding but ran out of time (4 month engagement will do that to you!).
Anyways, one day walking home from work, I noticed it and decided to take a peek. They have some great things!Read More
It's that time of year again! May, sunshine, springtime, and the SF Decorator Showcase.
If you don't live in SF, you probably have something similar in your town. Once a year, they choose a home and choose the top decorators in the area to each design one roomRead More
