I cannot possibly explain it in a way to make you understand, that is unless you are a resident of the fine city of San Francisco and by resident I don't mean that you live in the Mission or SOMA, which are always sunny, like, everyday of the week. This summer fog. You just cannot possibly get it until you are forced to live under it's grueling iron fist day in and day out. It'll suck the very life out of you. And along with the life it'll suck the to-do list, the cleaning, the working out, all of it, right out of your body and you will be left lying on your cozy sofa under a blanket with your dog and Downton Abbey. All. Day. Long. I am on a mission to win today. I will succeed!
I need a good dose of color. Wanna check out some Katie Ridder? Ok. I agree. Let's.
To be honest, I'll say that some of it isn't my fave. But she certainly has a way with color and she uses it very liberally. I am definitely more drawn to her muted designs (shocking!).
As you'll see, sisters got a knack for little girls rooms. This is just about the cutest thing ever with the pinks and the sheep and the little truck on the windowsill.
It's bigger than my whole apartment but, hey, what are you going to do?
Again, killing it. That giant roman shade is pretty dope.
Nice use of turquoise and red with the neutrals. Brings some energy into the room.
If you have ever known a little girl you will fully understand that this would be her heaven. And, because of that red chair in the corner, it is mine too. The bed and the bedding probably cost as much as I make in a year.
Pretty traditional but I am really liking the solid red headboard and bed frame. Bold move.
I think Katie digs the ugly pretty. I like that. This is all just weird in a good way.
I don't know about the mint green and pink. eh. Headboard is great though.
Bright and sunny.
I don't remember what that looks like...
I spy a lantern. One that I am majorly crushing on right now.
In the details. The light fixtures. The rug. The tile. Done.
Spindle bed, suzani pillow, Chinese lamp. Take away the swan and I can get down with this.
What did I tell you about the ugly pretty?
The light. The shade and the mini green chairs. And don't forget that wee sconce. Cute.
The ship fixture plus the Moroccan tile. These must have been some dream clients to let her use that.
I rather like this, not for me, but it is certainly interesting. Right?
I am pretty much obsessed with this. Whoa.
Citron and seafoam. And, boy, she really does roman shades to perfection.
And here we are in my very own comfort zone. Very nice.
And right back out of the comfort zone we go.
I am loving just the hint of color here. Those purple stools are so unexpected. As are the lavender pendants. Beautiful work.
