1000 sq. ft never looked so good...


I just rediscovered my San Francisco Style book by Diane Dorrans Saeks recently...I have a feeling as things go to and from the storage unit, I will rediscover a lot of things I thought went missing with our remodel. But, I have always loved the cover of this book...a quaint little Sausalito cottage owned and designed by Stephen Shubel and Woody Biggs. A charmer built after the 1906 earthquake, that is so full of life and personality that I thought I would share it with you...so enjoy!!!


Love this chair fabric with the white piping...


Love the stacked version of storing magazines...


Fun headboard again with the white piping is fab :)


Okay, I think too much reading at bedtime...but love the stacked book idea!

This post is making me love yellow. Melanie--you beat me to that comment. I think when it is balanced out with a lot of white and a little black it is stunning. Thanks for sharing your book!

I adore all of the little foot stools. Pretty little things for a pretty little house. I'm also a fan of the draped bed. So Romantic!

Stacked books as bedside table! Nice nice! This one is getting implemented over this weekend at my home! :)
