Favorite Posts of 2016

As I welcome 2017 with open arms, I also reflect back on this past year. As you may know, we moved into a 1940s home that desperately needed a face-lift, so for the last year and a half we have been in the process of various renovation projects. In fact much of the last year we were in the mist of several projects which included the kitchen & great room, three bathrooms, and a laundry room. Each project brought challenges and joy along the way – some which I have already shared like the process of designing our master bathroom & closet and guest bathroom. Once I catch my breathe and get some photo taken, I’m planning on revealing some of the other projects we undertook in the upcoming months.

Wishing you a very happy, healthy 2017!

Here’s a look back at some of my favorite posts of 2016:

Design Crush :: Maggie Pierson Design

Comfortable sophistication. That’s what homeowner, jewelry designer, and founder of Dogeared Jewelry, Marcia Maizel-Clarke was seeking when re-designing her Malibu, California home. She hired interior designer and friend, Maggie Pierson to execute her vision of an inviting home that flowed and was well suited for entertaining. The result, as featured in MyDomaine is light & airy, approachable & open, and chic & relaxed. Love, love, love!

Fresh Picks :: Laundry Room Supplies

The chic laundry room design by Evars + Anderson earlier this week had me thinking about the unavoidable task of cleaning, folding and ironing the endless laundry that piles up. Okay, I rarely iron, but seem to be washing and folding clothing several times a week.

To brighten up the dreaded task, I’ve rounded up a few fresh, functional and innovative laundry room products to help you get the job done.

San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2015 :: Sneak Peek

This year’s San Francisco Decorator Showcase is a beautiful Elizabethan-style home designed by iconic architect Julia Morgan (notable works include the legendary Hearst Castle and became the first woman to be awarded the American Institute of Architects’ Gold Medal). The residence located on Jackson street in the prestigious Presidio Heights neighborhood, was completed in 1917 for $20,000 for Abraham Rosenberg, the “Dried Fruit King” and his wife, Alice.

In the last few months, thirty-eight Bay Area interior designers have transformed the six bedroom, eight bath home for the San Francisco University High School’s 38th annual Decorator Showcase. Gorgeous light fixtures, exquisite furnishings and extraordinary wallcoverings had me visiting spaces more than once on my tour. Here’s a sneak peek of the showcase:
