Designing an Adult Bedroom : Part 1

I'm in the process of helping my friend, and new roommate, update her bedroom. She moved in about a month ago, and asked for my help designing an adult, refined bedroom that would serve a number of purposes. The room needed to act as a personal sanctuary, and a quiet place she could come relax after a long day. The main challenge for her is storage. She's super athletic and has a bunch of equipment: two bikes, lots of water bottles, yoga mat, training gear--a little of everything. 

Fall Living Room Update : 90% Complete

I've been working little by little to update our living room for fall, but it's probably 90% complete! Finally! Our tv (which is actually a projector!) fits comfortably into its new home, we've updated a couple of pieces (one more furniture change is in the works but hasn't been ordered yet!), and I've added some textural pieces for fall and winter coziness. I'm a firm believer that since you, as a person, are constantly growing and changing then your surroundings can never be 100% done. There's always something to tweak, or change or a replacement for something you're just not that into anymore. But for now, I'm really loving our living room again.

City Bedroom REFRESH : Fresh, Neutral + fit for two

Lately I've been seriously craving a bedroom refresh. My boyfriend has lived in our flat for more than five years, but we've only been in our room about two. We have a mix of pieces--everything from street finds and Ikea to a DWR Sapien bookshelf I just had to buy a couple years ago. A few months ago I took the time to re-style our Ikea Expedit shelf, and it cured my need to start fresh for a while, but lately I can't take it anymore!

How to Style an IKEA Expedit Shelf

Living in SF means living with less space, and less storage space, than you'd find other places. To combat this, creative storage solutions are a must. If Carrie Bradshaw can store shoes in her oven, you can pretty much do as you darn well please. Ikea's Expedit and Kallax are excellent storage solutions.
