Known to represent kindness and remind us of those sweet flamingos, the color pink comes in many shades. Although I love them all, lately I’ve most drawn to the hue’s pale, pink side that is often featured in a baby girl’s nursery like the one by Caitlin Creer above. The fresh and cool shade of pink is also popping up in other areas of the home as a primary or accent color. Pale pink takes on a modern, sophistication when paired with a darker hues like black, navy and green.

2015. It’s almost history and boy was it a year of change (at least for me). The biggest of course was my family moving from the bustle of the San Francisco Peninsula to the slower paced Sierra Nevada high dessert. I’ll be honest, it took me a few months to adjust (missing our California friends the most), but I love our new lifestyle. I’m also enjoying renovating our 1940s home (no small task – so lets see how I feel about it next year!). I’ve already tackled the foyer, thanks to a nudge from the One Room Challenge and will be sure to share other projects we are undertaking in the upcoming months.
Wishing you a very happy, healthy 2016!
Here’s a look at some of my favorite posts of 2015:

In just five short months from first meeting to installation, San Francisco-based interior designer, Nicole Hollis created the cutest bedrooms for three very lucky sisters. I first spotted the bright, whimsical designs on Instagram and had to take a closer look at the feature in Lonny.
Each room is distinctly different, yet all are full of personality, color (a dose of girly hot pink spotted throughout) and whimsical wallcoverings. Built-in desks, bookcases and smart storage help keep each space stylishly organized. Love it all! Take a peek for yourself.

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!
