sage living + a giveaway.

sage living by anne sage / sfgirlbybay

one of the very first profiles on my home was for rue magazine, and it was written by one its founders, anne sage. it was also one of my favorite write-ups because i felt like anne was able to really capture the essence of what it was like for me to live in that home in san francisco, and how much i loved it. she created a scenario for the readers that really expressed the kind of home i had hoped to make for myself and how i wanted my guests to feel when they visited. so when i heard anne was coming out with her first book Sage Living: Decorate for the Life You Want, i knew it was going to be a good one, and that i had to have it on my bookshelves. i think you’d like one on yours as well, so we’re giving one away.

sage living book by anne sage / sfgirlbybay

published by Chronicle Books, Sage Living: Decorate for the Life You Want profiles 28 spaces photographed beautifully by emily johnston that are designed in accordance with the occupants’ goals or wishes in mind. These homebodies created spaces not just for aesthetics, but to help them thrive personally and professionally. Each one has an inspiring story with takeaways for readers on how to achieve a similar feel themselves. this book is in anne’s words, “not only for the interiors junkie but for anyone in transition, the object enthusiast, and the personal growth devotee”. she had me at hello! anne and i have both been transitioning from our move from san francisco to los angeles, and her reflections on this process have always been ones i look forward to — whether it’s a pithy tweet or a moving snapshot, anne is a great writer, with wit and wisdom that goes deep and hits at my core. i believe her book will do the same for you, and help you create the kind of personal and meaningful home you were always looking for.
