Hello lovelies! Today I’m excited to introduce a new series to sfgirlbybay — I have big plans of exploring all of my favorite colors with you and would love to know which shades you’re digging right now.

As a former lover of all things neutral, I’ve been experimenting a ton lately with adding color to my life, home and wardrobe. Naturally, this earthy rust hue is at the top of my list! I’m obsessed with all things copper, terra cotta and tawny and I think the color is perfect for injecting a little bit of natural richness to everyday.

Keep scrolling for my favorite rust-tinged spaces, styles and products.

xx, chelsea

tiny canal cottage home tour. / sfgirlbybay

if you’ve ever searched any variation of the phrase “small home inspiration” it’s likely that you’ve come across the wonderfully warm and delightful living space of creative director whitney leigh morris, founder of  tiny canal cottage. she and her husband adam have transformed a small 1920’s craftsman cottage near the venice canals into the most space efficient home without sacrificing one ounce of character. add one adorable curly-headed boy and two incredibly photogenic rescue beagles and now you’re even more impressed that everyone fits, right? they recently acquired the neighboring cottage which provides a bit more room for guests and creative crews and opened up the adjoining patio, allowing them to take full advantage of that ideal southern california weather. we got a special sneak peek at her new patio setup and squeezed in a snuggle with stanlee + sophee before leaving. be sure to check out Whitney’s blog for more inspiring design tips, tricks, makeovers and diys.

sometimes i just space and forget how a plethora of wonderful handmade items can be found right at our fingertips — quite literally. etsy is just a click away from some of the loveliest online resources for handcrafted goods of all kinds — from stationery, ceramics and art prints like lucy augé’s Pink Hydrangea Exhibition Poster (above), to handmade lampshades. i went and checked out some of my favorite shops and then scoured Etsy for some new ones and found a dozen favorite shops among them. enjoy, and perhaps go on an Etsy hunt of your own!
