Urban Outfitters has stepped up their game in the furniture department and is now featuring some great retro style remakes, and this Mid-century modern rocking chair is my favorite. The Mid-Century Rocker Chair comes in a variety of colors and perfectly mimics authentic Danish mid-century versions, with a price tag of $288.
Amy Butler is very talented at creating beautiful, colorful and unique prints and I adore her handmade rugs, especially the Bright Buds design for Chandra Rugs. She calls it “A modern take on the bright sky and flowers waving in the field. Deep blues give the feeling of a garden pond oasis”. In addition to being [...]
My husband and I just moved and we’re planning to set up a bar area in our new home. I’ve been on the hunt for bar stools for days and just found these new arrivals at one of my favorite stores TINI Vintage in LA. White vintage modern bar stools in white=true love!
Last week I was in the modern home store Propeller in Hayes Valley, and I saw this amazing Alder Cube side table by Brent Comber. As Comber puts it “I have always loved the spaces created between the trees in a forest. I was inspired by the positive and negative shapes and the play of light [...]

On a recent trip for a San Francisco based client, I came across this Italian antique carved mahogany mirror at Anthem in the Presidio. Dramatic and elegant, it’s a wonderful piece for a dining or living room.
My new fave and top wish list item is the eco-friendly Sundial bedding by Sang & Serena, which I found thanks to Coco + Kelley. I have always admired Indian bedding, but most prints I’ve seen are too feminine, whereas Sang & Serena’s textile collection is well balanced in terms of masculine & feminine colors. [...]
The new advances and designs in wallpaper are one of my favorite trends in interior design. I became obsessed when I first saw Cole & Son’s Wood handprinted wallpaper at Moda Hotel in Vancouver. I’ve always considered the print to be rustic, playful, relaxing and beautiful, so I was excited that Designers Call used it [...]
