My San Francisco Apartment: Bedroom

Our San Francisco bedroom never totally felt finished to me but we ran out of time to make changes (we had to move) so it is what it is. I love our Dwell bedding which I purchased right after it came out. I guess I was on the same wavelength as every other person out there because I’ve seen it in lots of home tours. The drapes are pinch pocket drapes I made with fabric Jenny sent me. The vintage paintings I’ve picked up at flea markets and thrift stores and a couple on ebay, I never quite finished it.

See our Living Room right here.


Sources and Notes: Bed from Room & Board | Bedding from Dwell |Drape Fabric by Thomas Paul |Yellow Lamps from Ebay | Chevron Frame from Furbish | Vintage Persian Rug from Craigslist | Artwork in small white frame by my friend Sunny Belliston | Faux Bamboo Dresser from Ebay | Bench and Nailhead Chair from Craigslist

(ps the dresser photo was pulled in from earlier last year so the artwork and lamp make a repeat appearance.)

    I am in love with your nightstands and have been kicking myself since for not buying them (was in the process of moving and not sure what my new set-up would be).

    I have that draper stripe Dwell bedding as well (and 800 other Dwell things as I used to work for them) and it never gets old! It’s so classic and goes with every one of my decorating phases:)

    Everything looks wonderful. I remember years ago that you had an armoir that you redid. What happened to that? I’d love to see it again or hear how your refurbished it!

    I love the pictures of your living room (so colorful!) and your bedroom (how beautiful!). I’m on the hunt for new bedding, so I might have to check Dwell out. :)

    love the room. it feels very warm and eclectic. definitely offers some inspiration.
    Would like to echo the question about the nightstands and where they are from?

    I can relate to that unfinished feeling in the bedroom. It has been the case in this current house – it sorta became the room where un-used furniture from around the house ended up.
    Your room looks finished (to the untrained eye. Haha.). I like the grey chest of drawers!

    wow, your bedroom is basically what I would dream up if I was redoing my own boudoir right now. From the grey and yellow scheme of the bed to the fun art collections, eclectic furniture and white walls. It is gorgeous!
