Color Trends and Inspiration
Daily Delight I’m a little bit obsessed with Jonathan Adler’s line of sofas, especially this orange Templeton one. But I’ve wondered if such a bright-hued sofa could come off as anything other than novelty. I was pleasantly surprised to see such playful colors used in such a sophisticated room. We think that the contrast between the piping and the soft fabric really makes the whole look work. The other big color block pieces like the rug and ottoman also tie into the color scheme very nicely.

The Making of a Gallery Wall I wish I could say this is going to be a enlightening tutorial on how to create a gallery wall. The truth is, I am super impulsive and impatient and have never taken the time to create a template. Fortunately, there are some great DIY how-to’s online. For those of you who are like me, we are in the “eyeballer” group It doesn’t matter which method you end up choosing, the point is to present the artwork in a fashion that works for your home decor aesthetics and your personality. After all, they are just things. And things should make you happy!
Property of the Week
Design Love Fest This week, we travel to Montauk to fall in love with the beach house of designers Robin and Stephen of Roman and Williams. Well this sure is the dreamiest beach house I have ever seen! The limited color palette and exposed wood ceilings give off a particularly masculine vibe, which i am totally into. of course my favorite part is all of those beautiful leather chairs and that huge industrial light over the dining room table!
Local Fave (and Raves)
Cherry Blossoms! I know, I know, you’re tired of me talking about our awesome weather, but I just couldn’t help but smile as I went past these Cherry Blossoms trees in Hayes Valley (Pierce Street to be exact.) We’re seeing Cherry Blossoms in bloom ALL OVER SF! The glorious sunshine has fooled the trees into thinking it’s really spring and they’re blooming left and right. Driving through Golden Gate Park is, frankly, magical!
