A Glimpse into the Decorator's Showcase

A couple weeks ago I visited the Decorator's Showcase home over in the entirely affordable Presidio Heights neighborhood of San Francisco (Have I not mentioned I'm a secret millionaire? Must have slipped my mind...). In summary, the concept is that each room of the home is designed by a different Bay Area designer and then the home is open for paid public viewing. All the proceeds from the event (which runs for a month) go to benefit the financial aid program at a local high school. Design for a causeit doesn't get much better!

Anyways, I wrote a longer rundown of the event for Apartment 34, but I thought I'd share a few of my own snaps here.

A Home with all the Fixin's

Homepolish is one of my go-to sources for interior inspo. Case in point: This San Francisco apartment tour. This place is filled to the brim with some of my favorite design elements: Safari Chairs... Check! Trendy greenery... Check! Pattie and George in the Rose Garden print... Check! The list goes on... Here are some of my favorite looks (you can peruse the full tour here).


Happy Monday

After a long week of work travel, it was nice to spend some QT catching up with my own bed and good friends. On Saturday we ventured to Alcatraz to visit Ai Weiwei's @Large exhibit where we saw his work and also did the Alcatraz audio tour (which is SO fascinating, btw).


My favorite part of the exhibit was the incredibly vibrant kites hung about the New Industries building—the site where inmates would work doing laundry and manufacturing. The entire thing was so beautiful and erie.


Hope you had a relaxing weekend as well and I wish you a painless Monday and speedy work week!
