{Decor} Living Room Update

San Francisco Living Room Bay Window

If you saw Monday’s post, then you know we made a few updates to our living room. Gwyneth and I have been busy doing what we do best – moving furniture around and dumpster diving, and we’re pretty pleased with how our living room has turned out as a result! We moved our couch so […]

{Decor} Odds & Ends

Yellow Front Door

We know it’s been a while since we’ve been here; because last week Gwyneth and I fielded the same question from family, friends and you, dear readers – “Are you two alive?” It’s been two weeks since we’ve written, and those two weeks have gone by in approximately 3.4 minutes.

But we’re taking the Julia Roberts The Mona Lisa Smile approach to defining art today, asking ourselves: “What is art? Is it good? Is it bad? What criteria can be used to decide […]

{Decor} Our San Francisco Living Room Update

Living Room Wide

Today’s post concludes the tour of our new apartment in San Francisco. Please don’t misunderstand us here – we’ll be rearranging furniture and accessories until the day we move out of this apartment, and there is one big design dilemma here that we need to solve. (Help us, please!) But for now everything is unpacked […]
