Lifestyles We Share

I think we can all agree and some may disagree that we have lots in common during this pandemic lockdown/half-lockdown/possible opening/maybe closing/much reservation in the season ahead – that we have found new ways to keep busy or distracted. In my case, updating the house, swooning over travel destinations, cooking, watching movies on various apps, and tapping into my artistic side – oh and don’t forget walking, lots of walking (which I used to do anyway) I’ve never been a fan of the gym. So this Thursday, while juggling a bathroom renovation, painting the kitchen cabinets to a lighter color – grayish-blue, and updating the bedroom, I am mostly focused on home renovations and what I am taking from each one: What’s got you distracted, or busy these days?

Home Decor At Its Best

I went on my normal or usual walk on Saturday across the city, towards Pacific Heights, and as always, marveled at the beautiful architecture and renovation projects taking shape in the neighborhood. One home in particular that stood out was the same I saw in a magazine, showcasing the perfect interior renovation – which I often do wonder about – the inside of each home and choice of design and decor. And here’s a glimpse into the interior of this wonderfully old Victorian home turned modern on the inside. Or how about you take the video tour here and see the spectacular renovation project Do you ever walk through neighborhoods in your neck of the woods and wonder about renovations taking place?

Today’s Pretty Things

It has been a week – on a personal level, with a car break in, plumbing issues lost driver’s license, and health related concerns, and yet I am buying a bouquet of flowers, and sprucing up the house, to do my best in staying positive or even optimistic. Photographs of pretty things help, especially these lovely ones. Hang in there if you are having an equally tough week. {featured image source and full credit}

Decor: Home Is Where We Are

Although many states, or countries are lifting the shelter in place to boost moral, moods and the economy, I am still considering staying more at home, and focusing on projects around the house which will certainly boost moods or moral if done as suggested in these topics of decor interest on this Wednesday. {featured images and article full credit}

Tuesday Beautiful Things

June gloom is how Californian’s see this month – due to the relentless heavy fogs along the coast and sometimes even inland. Surprisingly, we had a few gorgeous days at the start of the month, so we took to the streets, parks, and sandy beach walks soaking it all up. Today, the fog has rolled in as expected, and we are once again indoors, wearing sweaters and socks and all things winter related. For this very reason, I felt the need to share some beautiful things to help stay focused on positive thoughts… {featured image source and credit here, here, here, here}

Decor: Living Room Statement

During lockdown, like most of you, I’ve spent some of my time contemplating Springish(now) cleaning and sprucing up the house, in this case where my mother lives. So we talk, once a a day about my vision and she simply stares at me. I can tell she isn’t too thrilled about the idea of brightening her beautiful living and dining room first and then we’ll talk about tackling other parts of the house. So she said, show me what you are talking about and of course, here’s what’s happening this beautiful Monday in the city after experiencing some unbearably high winds over the weekend, which had the Golden Gate bridge howling – so eerie if you ask me. (Take a listen here) But before you go  – check out some of my favorite ideas I want to throw around and 54 more from here  in case you are also in the mood to create a new living room space or just go outside and enjoy the weather  – it’s summer and some of the restrictions …

Decor: A French Riviera Home

Dreaming of owning a home high on a hilltop, say somewhere along the French Riviera? I do. Actually, anytime a film is made along the French coastline, I stop and watch, no matter how cheesy the story, like this and this film. So, naturally, I did a stop and watch with this amazing home tucked somewhere high above Cannes and had to share my admiration of the craftsmanship. The decor is truly in line with the environment, sixties inspired. The view isn’t bad either. featured image and source full credit

Lovely Things On This Wednesday

I love the end of May in the city. Because it is the only week before the actual summer we get sun, warm temperatures, and no wind or very minimal.  Everyone is out this week, walking naturally this year, or sitting six feet apart at the beach or the parks. So with that mood, I feel the need to share a few lovely things on this Wednesday. Featured image source, 1 – 2 – 3 – 4 – 5
