The show doesn’t go on because it’s ready; it goes on because it’s 11:30.

We are so honored to have been selected to participate in this year’s San Francisco Decorator Showcase! The Showcase is a long-standing San Francisco tradition, and when I first moved here from New York, I attended the Showcase with my mom, to check out the local talent and see which firms I liked best and to which I might want to apply. Now, four years later, I’m one of the designers! I still can’t really believe it, and I’m so grateful for this amazing opportunity. Opening night is next Friday, and we’re getting the room ready for visitors! More info here.
I’m obsessed. My brother-in-law introduced me to Alabama Shakes, a band out of Athens, Alabama. Brittany Howard, the lead singer/guitarist met bassist Zac Cockrell in their high school psychology class (!). That’s such a cool thought, to think of two teenagers rehearsing together after school and, over the years, developing this amazing new sound. Howard’s voice just sounds like heartbreak, doesn’t it? I love it.

Charles and Ray Eames are getting a lot of love these days. There’s a new documentary out titled ”The Architect and The Painter” all about the creative husband-wife dream team; their work was featured in the LACMA’s exhibition “California Design, 1930-1965: Living In a Modern Way” (check out the amazing time-lapse video of their living room being carefully deconstructed here), and even Ice Cube shows his love for the beauty of the iconic Eames design aesthetic. Charles and Ray Eames have shaped the way that Americans see design and also the way they see their own homes. As Ice Cube says, “they was doing mashups before mashups even existed…”
Love this print, those herringbone floors, and that wall color…
Steve Jobs’s sister, Mona Simpson, wrote a touching eulogy for her brother. It was interesting to get such personal insight on a very private person, and I definitely teared up towards the end.

This photo is from the Ikea website, of all places, but I thought it was a cute way to arrange a children’s room where siblings may be sharing a small space. Each kid gets her own side, clearly delineated, but the space remains open and the effect of the different patterns on the wall is really graphic and sweet.
