mid-century goes modern.

mid-century modern | sfgirlbybay

photography by prue ruscoe for home life.

there’s something so fresh looking about a bit of mid-century furnishings against a background of neutral white walls — vintage danish modern at its best. add a pop of lush green plant life to spaces full of natural wood furniture and rooms seem to get even more vibrant and alive. i love this look and wouldn’t mind a modern retreat somewhere in the california redwoods decorated around this theme. looks mighty peaceful and relaxing.

tuesday’s girl: leah ball meets APORTA.

tuesday's girl: aporta | sfgirlbybay

chicago-based APORTA owner and designer Noelle Sharp recently sat down with designer Leah Ball to be interviewed for Leah’s on-going Portrait Series and i fell in love with noelle’s studio tour. noelle is a weaver and knitter with her own line of hand-produced textiles and accessories, and Leah, an artist herself presently works from her studio in Chicago, where her time is divided between marbling porcelain and carving cast metal jewelry. i love when two talented artists get together and talk ‘shop’ and leah’s interview with noelle and tour of her studio is an inspiring one — thank you so much ladies for allowing me to share it here. for more from noelle visit APORTA, and you can find leah’s work here.

day of pampering.

mother's day | sfgirlbybay

pssst. mother’s day is coming up — should it have slipped your mind. the folks at red envelope invited me to take a peek at their latest collections and put together what i envisioned to be a day of pampering for all the moms out there. whether you are a mom, or you just want to honor your own mom this mother’s day i think high on the wish list is a day of rest. perhaps an afternoon being waited on with an outdoor picnic and treated to a special day all their own while they kick back in a pretty hammock, relaxing with a good book? all of those things sound like my idea of a pampered afternoon. to see the entire outdoor picnic i put together, hop on over to red envelope.
