Our Inner Richmond Apartment


We moved a few months ago after living in the same Nopa Edwardian for over four years - the longest I’ve lived anywhere since the home I grew up in! After a few unsuccessful attempts at buying an apartment in San Francisco, we decided to take a pause and look at a bigger rental. We found our new Inner Richmond apartment on a Sunday, signed the lease Tuesday (while I was in the Munich airport on my way to Greece for work, no less), and moved two weeks later. 

Our new space is spacious (for a city), at 1,100 square feet, has wood floors, a second bedroom, and the kind of details that made me fall in love with San Francisco in the first place. We immediately bought the Mid-Century sectional we’d been eyeing, some rugs to pull the space together, and a daybed to allow guests to visit immediately (we have a guest room!!!). We still have some projects to finish but it already feels like home.

I was hesitant to share any photos because in the blogging world “home reveals” are kind of a big deal. We’re not working with a decorator, the apartment isn’t finished, and I took these photos on my iPhone, but I’m sharing them nonetheless. I think we need a little less perfect on the Internet anyway, right? And as much as I love gift guides, it’s pretty much the only content I’m seeing right now.
