I Am An Unexpected (House) Guest

Wednesday, March 30, 2011 · 5 Comments

Today I have the absolute pleasure of being an unexpected guest of Victoria of sfgirlbybay. I’ve always been a fan of her aesthetic and loved how honest, real and warm she comes across. She features interiors that are inspirational but real. And it’s always rooted by a genuine personal interest in the people who live there. Yes, I have a bit of a blogger crush on Victoria.

Going back a bit, we moved into our current apartment in Brooklyn a year and a half ago, and I’ve spent the past six months really pushing hard to get the space to where I wanted it. We’re super lucky to live in an inviting space that gets a ton of light, but it was still a difficult ongoing process figuring out how to arrange it to best fit our lifestyle and aesthetic. I’d love to say that it all came together effortlessly but that would be a total lie! Along the way there were many iterations of furniture layouts and art hanging.

Take a peak at the finished product below but be sure to check out more (including an interview) over at sfgirlbybay!

    Your collections feel so personal, and well-edited. I love that.

    I have the same Sharon Montrose photo and it’s always a conversation starter. 😉
