Here's what they meant by "limed" legs. The legs look to me like they were just half stripped of their paint. I would have preferred a solid wood. The fabric is not a warm color at all. In fact it looks dead in my house. Granted, it is beautiful and would work somewhere else, but not with what ...

On The Edge
My contractor had a few countertop edge and thickness options mocked up for me to consider. He especially wanted to know how thick I want my kitchen countertops.  I hadn't given it much thought before.  So I immediately went to Pinterest to research the opt...
He especially wanted to know how thick I want my kitchen countertops. I hadn't given it much thought before. So I immediately went to Pinterest to research the option of thick countertops. This kitchen by Barclay Butera Interiors is close to what my kitchen will look like.

Herringbone, Basketweave and Crown
Well, the brick made it all the way up the front stairs to the entry I'm happy to say! Each landing is herringbone which will be carried into the house only in hardwood. I guess it's a theme? The hardwood arrived and is acclimating in the living room.  Inst...
Michael framed out the opening to the family room and then decided the crown was too wimpy, so he mocked up a beefier crown above. It's actually three pieces. Much more substantial. It's beginning to feel like a house, don't you think? Pin It! Posted by Delores Arabian at 8:10 AM ...

A Lot Of Progress!
I've been told that once the drywall goes in, things start happening very fast. I'm finding that to be true.   The drywall is 90% finished and it's starting to feel like a house now. This is the family room right after the drywall went in. The wet bar was i...
Yesterday, the French doors were installed to the closet. The glass is obscure, so you won't actually see the closet, but it will have a nice glow at night when the doors are closed and a light is on in there. The closet itself will be delivered next week. Here's the master bath from a week ago, ...

My vision was to brick over the terrazzo using half bricks. The masons who bid the job said they could do it, but couldn't guarantee their work. They would however guarantee their work if the terrazzo was ripped out and the stairs rebuilt. Here is the progression of the stairs from terrazzo to ...

Saying goodbye to her wasn't easy, but also saying goodbye to this English oak parquet table wasn't either because of all the memories of holiday dinners we enjoyed on it. It will look fantastic in her new home in Seattle though. Not so much in my home in San Francisco.

I Really Tried!
The chairs arrived from One King's Lane and I really tried to love them! What's not to love?  They're upholstered in a camel colored linen, similar to burlap, the legs are limed and they're over 100 years old.   Here's what they meant by "limed" legs.  The ...

Brick House
 Right after my last post, many pallets of brick arrived. I got so excited to think that the brick would now be layed. It's been a slow process... Day one. The front walk way design is determined.  Herringbone. Day two. The front walk was bricked, but two w...

Brick Stairway Update
The original stairs to our front door are your typical stairs in the City, especially the Marina. They are almost always terrazzo.  Ours are terrazzo with weird tile inlays and tile on the landing. My vision was to brick over the terrazzo using half bricks....

I don't know who you are, but you turned up on my google page? I'm not sure how this happened. Can you let me know?

Saying Goodbye
 Last Friday, I not only said goodbye to my daughter and family, but also to half my furniture! Melissa arrived early morning, driving a 26 foot U-haul to pick up the furniture that I promised her. Saying goodbye to her wasn't easy, but also saying goodbye ...
