cozy modern.

cozy eclectic modern decor. / sfgirlbybay

this is what i would call cozy modern. eclectic spaces that while definitely have a very vintage vibe, don’t swing in the direction of ‘country’ and instead are a little more modern. and they get that way with the addition of contemporary lighting and artwork, bringing in the latest on-trend greenery, and are much more a mixed bag and less matchy-matchy. it’s as if you perhaps inherited a family heirloom, like your grandmother’s windsor chairs but then paired them with a burl wood countertop you made from scratch (like you see below). lesson? don’t be afraid to mix and match what’s old and new, and just keep what you love. because what you love will ultimately make for a very happy, cozy modern home.

    Hi. I just found your blog and I’m loving it. Could you tell me where the print of the woman in picture 2 is from? I would love to get it…it’s beautiful! Thanx.

    Hello Victoria,

    This is the first post I’ve received and absolutely love it. Love the indoor plants.
    Where do you find the beautiful pots for the plants? It’s hard to find interesting containers for my plants in Tennessee.

    Thank you!

    Hi there! Love the blog and your Instagram!!! I’ve been on a teak binge, any favorite spaces you’ve come across to find tables and chairs? I’m in the East Bay :) Thanks, keep up the awesome posts!

      Thanks, Ajshia! I would try the Alameda Flea Market. I’ve also seen a teak wood shop just off the Mill Valley exit on the 101 freeway. You can’t miss it.

    Hi! I was wondering if you knew where the ottoman is from in the last picture?

      I’m sorry but I checked but the article didn’t say. But the interior design is by Wolf in Sheep Design so maybe check with them. It almost looks custom built.
