San Francisco Decorator Showcase :: Master Bedroom

Dark moss green. It’s a color that was popular in the 90s is making a comeback. The earthy shade of green covers the walls in the Master Bedroom designed by Will Wick of Wick Design for this year’s San Francisco Decorator Showcase. To balance the masculine walls, Wick adds soft feminine tones including the light cream drapery and pale pink bedside lamps. To achieve a curated feel, the space features a mixture of modern-styled furniture (much of which was custom designed by Wick himself) with antiques. In addition, Wick’s use of lighting, artwork and color is tremendous. I was smitten by the level of detail that went into this design. Bravo!

Book Review :: Windsor Smith HOMEFRONT

Her interiors are glamorous, yet practical; sophisticated, yet relaxed. She strikes the perfect balance. I’m talking about A-list interior designer, Windsor Smith. She is simply one of the best in the business and so it’s no surprise that her first book, HOMEFRONT (Rizzoli) is absolutely fantastic. Filled with over 200 inspiring images, Smith walks through her process for creating beautiful, functional spaces from design intuition to the home in balance. In the book’s introduction, she explains her goal is to “design beautiful rooms for the way people today actually use them, regardless of their intended purpose, breaking the rules as to how a room ‘should’ function.” Her approach of creating livable spaces in every corner of the home resonates with me. Take a look at just some of the gorgeous images that grace the pages of this book and I think you’ll agree too.

A home in balance is masculine and feminine, antique and modern, light and dark, austere and glam, rustic and sophisticated – all these things in perfect harmony. – Windsor Smith

I’m like an unruly child when it comes to design. There’s always a point where I say: “What if this weren’t the dining room?” – Windsor Smith

Design Reveal :: My Home

Today I’m thrilled to share a very personal space: my home. Recently I welcomed a favorite online shelter magazine, Rue to take a tour of our ranch-style home located on the San Francisco Peninsula. The design has been a work in progress for over a decade (I’m never really done!). When we first moved in we tackled renovating the kitchen, bathrooms and landscaping front & back. In the last year as you may know, we added a master bedroom suite. Here’s a look…

I hope you enjoyed a little peak into my home – pop over to Rue Magazine to see the entire feature. And a big thank you to the Rue team including Crystal Palecek (founder/editor-in-chief), Julia Robbs (photographer) and Shoko Wanger (writer) who made the whole process so fun. You’re the best!

happy decorating,

San Francisco Decorator Showcase :: His Office

Even thought the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2015 closed the doors this past weekend, I still have a few rooms I’d like to share with you. One is “His Office” created by Brittany Haines of Authenticity B. Designs. The design was inspired by the literature, art and design resulting from destruction. “We kept coming across this concept over and over again – my team couldn’t escape it. So we designed a room around it. The centerpiece of the room is a desk constructed from material called shou sugi ban, created by an ancient Japanese technique of charring cedar planks.” says Haines. Placed opposite the desk is a painting by Ian Kimmerly which was inspired by the crackly, damaged videotapes. Even the smallest details like a wooden tray has a rawness about them. Even with the “destructive” elements, the room is approachable, flooded with natural light and brilliantly layered.
