San Francisco Decorator Showcase :: Shared Girl and Boy Bedroom

The San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2016 is in full swing and for the first time featuring a home in Telegraph Hill near Coit Tower. I’m super bummed that I had to miss the press tour last week, but I’ve received lots of beautiful images to share with you! Today, we are touring a shared girl and boy bedroom by interior designers Heather Brock and Jennifer Wundrow of Nest Design Co. The shared children’s bedroom they call, Two Bedheads Are Better Than One is set in a bright room with white walls and is infused with an eclectic mix of pattern and color.  To create a unique space, Heather and Jennifer designed custom furnishings, soft goods and accessories – including upholstered built-in beds joined at the headboard. A brilliant solution to a shared bedroom. I’m loving all of the storage drawers for children’s books, toys and cherished collections. However, a corner embellished with mountain climbing footholds is perhaps my favorite element in the space. It gives the space a wonderful sense of adventure. This room is adorable and I think you’ll agree!

Book Review :: Patina Farm

When I started blogging back in 2009, there were a few hundred decor bloggers out there. Now there are thousands and it’s been really hard to keep up with all my favorites because the list just gets longer and longer. One blog that I’ve followed from the very beginning is Velvet & Linen by interior decorator, Brooke Giannetti.  We quickly bonded on interior design, being moms and raising backyard chickens. At the time, Brooke and her world-renown architect husband, Steve were living in a lovely home in suburban Santa Monica, California. I’ll never forget her decision (which she shared on her blog) to leave the bustling, star-studded Los Angeles community for the quite, serene oasis of Ojai Valley – situated just south of Santa Barbara. I was inspired by her bravery to move her school aged children, build her dream home and follow her heart to spend her free time in nature.

Over the course of the last few years, I’ve watched Brooke and Steve’s dream unfold and was thrilled to hear that they were going to give us a tour in their just released book, Patina Farm . Through 150 stunning images and beautiful sketches by Steve, the book delivers a detailed account of inspirations, architectural elements, and various influences the designing couple encountered throughout the process. I found it interesting that the number one influence in their home’s footprint was sunlight. To achieve their goal of maximizing sunlight in and outside the home, they situated the house so that the back faces south. They also balanced the light in rooms by adding windows to two or three sides allowing for natural light for greater lengths of time. The connection of the indoor and outdoor spaces just flows in this house – allowing the family to reach their goal of of being surrounded by nature.

The mix of materials used throughout Patina Farm was heavily influenced by French, Spanish and Belgium design and included galvanized steel, terra-cotta roof tiles, limestone, glass steel doors, and reclaimed barn doors to name a few. The Giannettis wanted their home to feel as it was built over time this mix helps them achieve that look. The result is a home that’s stunning from every angle. It’s superbly elegant, yet inviting and unpretentious. Brooke and Steve make it look effortless.

One of the main reasons we built Patina Farm was to show our children the power of a dream. – Steve & Brooke Giannetti, Patina Farm

This one of the loveliest decor books I’ve read and I’m amazed at how intimate it is. From the first page, Brooke and Steve welcome you into their home in the most down-to-earth, personal way. I highly recommend taking a tour of Patina Farm for yourself!

Floral Nursery by Emily Henderson

Have you had a chance to see the sweet floral nursery by Emily Henderson? The LA-based designer created the girly, girl room for Lulu & Georgia founder, Sara Sugarman and her new baby girl. The custom designed floral wallpaper on pink ground was designed just for this space (my favorite detail in the space!)  The large scale floral pattern with leafy ferns and blooming peonies has an old Hollywood Regency feel that’s undeniable. The color chartreuse was pulled from the wallpaper and repeated in solid velvet drapery and a bench cushion. Love, love, love!

Lining drawers with wallpaper is a fun way to add some whimsy to a desk, vanity or dresser. This is a great way to use up remnants like Jess Lively did with this project.
