Quick Changes, Chocolate Tart and SF at Night

Jackie wanted to "freshen up" her 
master bedroom on a budget.  
After visiting her home, I gave Jackie and
her husband some direction
 to carry out the project themselves. 
Here are photos that she sent to me recently...
I recommended recovering her chair with tufting 
and in this subtle stripe that I found at 
Dorell Discount fabric (about $10/yd).  
All their bedroom furniture was "matched."
Since they needed more storage, 
we ordered two of these from 
This was the major investment.  
They were relieved that I
 didn't suggest changing everything.  
Jackie got the mercury lamps at Home Goods.

In this before photo below, I suggested spray painting the botanical frames black and rehanging them to frame the mirror.

I, also recommended painting the walls 
Benjamin Moore Glass Slipper.

We have enough of the coordinating 
discount paisley fabric (on the pillow)
 to have a tailored bedskirt made in the near future. 

Here is another quick before and after for a different client who only wanted to replace her powder room's faded wallpaper.

We also grabbed a different mirror from the hall
and installed this beautiful 
(wish you could see it in person)
Phillip Jeffries Moroccan Metallic Gold 
on Ivory Hemp Wallpaper.

My client just sent this photo to me via her telephone.
The scale of this mirror feels slightly too large 
for the base but the price was right :)
I won this book from the wonderful blog,
Thanks, Karena!

It's displayed without the cover 
(showing the neutral cane cover) on our coffee table.

Yesterday, I made this 
to take to our friends' dinner party... 
few blocks down the street…
They have an amazing view of the 
Golden Gate Bridge 
from their rooftop deck.
(thanks, Dwight, for taking these photos)
This is a view back towards Russian Hill on the right, 
where we live…and see the shooting star?
Next time... a tour, of our compact but 
efficient and relatively spacious, galley kitchen.

Thanks for visiting!
