at home in denmark.

at home in denmark. / sfgirlbybay

i love everything about this elegant home in denmark. it’s very spare and simple, and yet so much attention has been paid to the smallest details, and little surprises pop up — a sculpture here, a piece of art over there in the most unexpected places. beautifully photographed by Copenhagen-based peter kragballe, this is the home of Danish craft artist Line Galst Jørgensen and her family. it’s the kind of space that feels calm and well cared for, everything in its place but warm and cozy, too — especially that bedroom. perhaps grab a cup of tea, and have a slow, leisurely look around!

light and lovely small space design.

modern room designed by nimó design studio. / sfgirlbybay

this cozy attic apartment would be categorized as petite but oh-so-pretty! designed and decorated by nimó design studio in cheerful pastels to keep this small home in Madrid light and lovely, with lots of inspiring and creative storage ideas for you small home dwellers. the long built-in bench also serves as a sweet space to stash beautiful baskets to keep their belongings neat and tidy, and the picture ledge offers a vertical solution for displaying their abundance of artwork. it’s a very functional space but you hardly notice its practicality when it’s been put together in such a charming fashion. and those exposed wood beams provide the pièce de résistance.

working from home with eero.

as you know, i recently turned my home office into a guest bedroom. and while i have admitted to missing my desk area just a bit, it’s been a fun and freeing experience for the most part. i love popping open my laptop to work whenever inspiration strikes. sometimes this means working from the comfort of my bed (warning: this requires a lot of self-control, as the urge to nap is strong!), or from my living room sofa or daybed — on the off chance that lucy isn’t hogging it. and sometimes, especially when it’s not too hot, i’ll work from my backyard in the patio dining area or even my front porch, when i want to take in one of our magical california sunsets.

with all this moving around, i need reliable, strong wifi that works well from every corner of my home, as well as, my beloved outdoor areas — which isn’t always the case! i hate when i’m all settled in and can’t get a signal, or worse, start working and then lose service for whatever reason and lose all my work! so when eero asked me to swap my old router for their new WiFi system, I jumped at the opportunity to upgrade!

with eero, instead of trying to hide one of those boxy, black WiFi routers with all the blinking lights and antennas sticking out, a mesh WiFi network is created in your home using sleek, simply designed devices that blend in with your decor and blanket every nook and cranny of your home in fast, reliable WiFi. and as someone who really dreads setting up new gadgets, i loved how easy it was to get my network up and running. the eero smartphone app walked me through it and now i can use my iphone to change my settings, set up a guest network for folks staying in my lovely new guest room, and easily share my WiFi password via email or text message — which is also really nice for when i’m hosting my fellow blogger friends for a party and everyone’s using my network to Instagram all the fun!

so far, my experience with eero has been totally headache free and a real game-changer compared to the service i was getting with my old set-up. their easy to use technology and clean design allows your wiFi to fade into the decor background so you can focus on the things you love. plus, your system automatically updates its software each month, all on its own, so you’re always getting cutting edge service, maintenance-free! check them out and use promo code SFGIRL for free overnight shipping.

collect not clutter.

i’m feeling much more zen today, so thank you for all the positive comments yesterday — i was way down there in those dumps! but what also makes me feel better, besides your trusty companionship here on the blog, is cleaning out the cobwebs — literally and figuratively. i’ve been sorting through my belongings and trying to declutter – a lot! it’s a difficult task for me, because i love collecting lovely things, but one can only own so many beautiful objects and those we do own should be sentimental and shared lovingly — maybe in a special display case or a prominently on a shelf for all to gander. they should also be displayed in a cohesive collection as to not look cluttered — “like objects” with their mates, so to speak. i think these images give us a great example to live up to. collections so pretty, but not in the least bit cluttered, so on with my purge!

anywhere but here.

pink vintage patio chairs. / sfgirlbybay

ugh. am i ever in a mood today. i don’t usually share too much here when i’m in a funk or down, but honestly, i just don’t have it in me this sunday to write another inspiring post for monday. i’ve tried and tried and sometimes i just get stuck creatively and today is one of those days. i’m feeling a little depressed so when that happens it can be tough to rally and bring you guys what you deserve — some interesting and pretty content. i am just in a state and probably not for any particular reason other than it’s been kind of a lonesome weekend — that kind where you want to be anywhere but here, so let’s go elsewhere together, shall we? let’s go somewhere pretty in pink.
