Scenes From Our Apartment

December 12th, 2008 · No Comments

I recently upgraded to a Nikon D90 and, let’s face it, I’m addicted.  Rather than blab about the camera, I’d rather just show you some photos.  Enjoy!

Working With Color

November 10th, 2008 · No Comments

A friend asked me today how I go about picking colors for a room.  To be honest, I don’t have a “system” or any really specific methods.  I usually just make that first decision, and the rest just seem to follow.  Mistakes are inevitable, but the best part of design is that it’s a process, […]

Eames Wire Shell Chairs

September 5th, 2008 · 3 Comments

Thanks to Apartment Therapy’s “SF Scavenger” feature, I am now the owner of my first piece of vintage Eames furniture, two wire shell chairs. These chairs were designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1950, and were produced by Herman Miller until 1967. While I’m not sure when exactly my chairs were produced, they have […]

After a whopping four months of our new living room redesign, we knew something wasn’t quite right.  After a few trips back and forth to various retailers, we decided to switch our our rug and sofa.  We opted for the oft-mentioned Petrie Sofa from C&B with its classic mid-century lines, and the more modern Burst […]

Sure, I gave my places […]

Our Perpetual "Moving" Sale

June 22nd, 2008 · No Comments

In order to live simply you must get rid of stuff you no longer need. Fortunately for us, Craigslist in the SF Bay Area isn’t just a great source for new stuff, it’s an even better outlet for sales. We’re 80% complete with our living room redecoration (photos of the results forthcoming!), but we need […]

Bertoia Diamond Chair, Score!

June 20th, 2008 · No Comments

What’s the best thing to do when you’re lusting after furniture that you can’t afford or simply won’t justify paying retail? Craigslist! I just scored an absolutely beautiful Bertoia Diamond Chair, in polished chrome, from a guy in the Mission. I also paid less than half of what it sells for retail, and this chair […]

New Furniture

June 12th, 2008 · No Comments

For the first time we’ve purchased furniture that we expect to keep more than a year. Luckily we live near one of the best stores in the country, Room and Board. I could spend all day in that store (and have close on occasion). Our apartment consists of a fairly large room intended for both […]
