Magazine Girl By Bay

vic

I was pleasantly surprised yesterday when I opened the magazine, Do It Yourself (a special interest publication from Better Homes and Gardens), to see a familiar face and home in it's pages! Sfgirlbybay's Victoria Smith's home has been making it's round in recent publications, but I have to say, these photo's by photographer James Carriere may just be my favorite version of this sought after San Francisco apartment yet. Also Victoria's flair to make her place look different with each photo shoot along with all her clever tips on how to decorate on a shoestring budget keeps our interest peaked to keep coming back for more! Sfgirlbybay's is also being featured in Canada's Style at Home this month along with her ever-popular Keep Calm and Carry On Posters she sells at her etsy shop.

Oh - I love this look. It's nice to see Pink incorporated with a look that isn't so overwhelming - just very pretty.
