It's no secret that I love food and dining out. I had been toying with the idea of adding a section to my blog to feature a few of my favorite SF eateries for awhile, and today I bring you the first in the Good Eats series! A woodsy California interior meets organic Korean American cuisine. Namu Gaji is located in the Mission district and perched on the corner of 18th & Dolores Street (kitty-corner from Dolores Park.) If the sleek and modern wood decor isn't enough to catch your attention then their line-up of organic locally sourced grub will.Read More
Every season brings it's share of newness. With Spring on the horizon, it's only natural that shorter hemlines, flowy dresses, and dainty accessories are on my mind. I've been pursuing a few new sites lately and have been loving the mix of new and seasoned designers including Alexis, Cmeo, and Quary, which I'm sure many of you have heard of before. SRead More
Too many glasses of vino on a Friday night can lead to miscellaneous Zara boxes popping up on your doorstep the following week. I'm not one to get rid of too many good things, and often times my best finds are all thanks to a little late night shopping.Read More
Living in 600 square feet is a task all on its own, but creating a designated work space is a true challenge. San Francisco brings an abundance of entertainment, fabulous food, and endless sites; however, finding a large apartment is not one of them. Don’t get me wrong: I’m more than happy in my little abode. It just took some serious planning to make the most of the space. Prior to kicking off the new year, I had resolved to transform an area of my home into a work space where I could blog and get organized. My predicament fell between not being able to fit additional furniture and needing additional storage. I was tired of resorting to writing from bed or dealing with a poorly lit kitchen, and, more importantly, misplacing important papers.
I opted to rearrange my living room to accommodate a small writing desk. I actually owned the desk already, so to freshen it up I added a few coats of paint, new drawer pulls from Target, and a faux marble top (which happens to be contact paper!). I love the minimalist aesthetic, but I never seem to be able to commit to a stark blank canvas. Since this is a space where I’ll be sending plenty of “me time,” I knew that I wanted to be surrounded by things that inspired me. I purchased a few vases so I could bring color through flowers and succulents, and change them through the seasons.
To tie in other metallic pieces in the room, I purchased a gold hanging file and desktop accessories, which would conveniently double as additional storage. I had actually eyed these Nate Berkus accessories on Instagram, and I was so excited when I saw them in stock at Target! Although I’ve only just begun working from this space, I already feel more productive than I’ve felt in months. There is certainly something to be said about making a space that truly is all your own.
Where do you enjoy your me time? Do you have a designated space in your home that gets you inspired?
