One of the benefits of having wildly creative friends is that they usually have homes to match-- homes full of color, interesting details and individual style. On a recent visit to San Francisco, I stayed with my good friend Leslie, a fantastic photographer and blogger extraordinaire. Leslie, who lives on the top floor of a beautiful old home with her son Riley, has filled the space with so much charm and color I just had to share. Thankfully, she was kind enough to send a few photos of her space my way. (And a few of my own photos are mixed in too).
I love the turquoise and brown in the sunroom, the painted floor, the pops of yellow, the colorful prayer flags. Perfect place to lay around. I promise you.
A mix of clean color and old architectural elements greet you on the way inside.
Leslie has one of the coziest homes I've ever been in. Chalk it up to a nifty mix of textiles and a super rich color palette. And years of scouring estate sales (a girl after my own heart) makes for a home filled with fascinating finds. Like the vintage botanical charts that hang above the couch.
And the light-up Champale sign that sits atop the armoire in the dining area. Which I sort of want to steal every time I visit.
Sweet personal details in the bedroom.
And the most comfortable bed in the history of the world.
Striking black and white toile in the bathroom.
And the most beautiful old creamy yellow stove in the kitchen. Really, it needs to be seen to be believed. Completely original to the place (it was there when Leslie moved in) and a functioning showpiece through and through.
More sweet, colorful details in the kitchen.
The doorway to the laundry room would have me wanting to visit the laundry room all the time. Which is nothing short of a miracle.
Actually, every detail of Leslie's place sings out sweetness. Even the old wooden gate you walk through on the way out. Thanks for sharing your home with Poppytalk, Leslie!
