moving on out!
eclectic simplicity via emma’s design blog.
i’ve got some pretty exciting news today! sfgirlbybay is moving! or more precisely, i am moving into a cute little rental house in san francisco’s noe valley neighborhood. and you may have seen this house before, because my good friends eszter & dan used to live there, so i’ve shared it here, and it’s also been on atsf. the house has come available again, and i swooped on it! now the packing and purging starts! i’m one of those weirdos who actually likes moving, and looks forward to starting fresh in a brand new (old) place!
a couple of eames eiffel dining room chairs to mix it up, via the brick house.
so, you guys are gonna be forced to watch me redecorate the new place, and i’ve got quite a few rooms to contemplate. it’s two bedrooms, one of which will be my studio/work space, a living room, dining room, a funky old kitchen complete with beautiful old gas stove, with a breakfast nook and small patio off the nook. it’s also got a garage (if you don’t live in san francisco, you can’t understand the significance of a parking spot!) and a small backyard with a patio and garden! i am excited beyond words (although, i’m doing a pretty good job of gushing right about now, aren’t i?).
some butterfly chairs for the patio, via the brick house.
i went to some of my usual suspects — the brick house, door sixteen, design*sponge and emma design blog, to name just a very few — in search of inspiration and i’ve got a pretty good inkling of what i’m going for. thanks ladies, as always for your excellent taste! here’s what’s inspiring me right now for the new place. you know how obsessed i can get, and how much fun this is for me, so stay tuned for more!
i’d like a painted chalkboard wall like this in the dining room, via emma’s design blog (above) and maybe in the kitchen too, which has black & yellow vintage tile, like this wall via door sixteen and design*sponge (below).
maybe some black and natural wood kitchen accessories, via emma’s design blog.
a clean, simple looking bedroom with lots of calming white and dramatic black here and there, via the brick house.
