House Tour

People have been asking to see the inside of my odd little house. Here goes:

housewindow

Come on up the front stairs. Which are at the side of the house. The window is where my desk is (you’ll see it later).

staircase1

The staircase to the sleeping loft is right in front of you when you walk in. Rob made the picture frames from found materials. He’s the best upcycler I’ve ever met.

loft2

The staircase landing. The railings are made of driftwood.

desk1

Here’s my desk, where the magic happens. It’s right next to the bathroom:

bathroom1

Where you see Audrey enjoying the window in the shower. Who doesn’t love a shower with a view?

The door leads to the back deck and the outdoor shower.

Walk back to the door, and you’ll see the main living area.

livingroom1

The painting is “Russian Hill”, by Keith Wicks. It shows the neighborhood I first lived in when I moved to San Francisco. It’s my little piece of the city.

livingroom2

Here’s another view of the living room, showing the sliding glass doors to the garden.

View from the sliding glass doors to the sleeping loft and balcony.

View from the sleeping loft to the living area. To the right you can just about see my heirloom Wedgwood, which dates to the 1820s, and the edge of the wooden chests containing my grandmother’s ivory-handled silver and fish set.

kitchen1

To the right of the sliding glass doors is the kitchen(ette). You can see that I have not been exaggerating about the lack of counter and cupboard space. Yet I can and have made Thanksgiving for ten people here.

And we’re back to the front door. Come back and visit again soon!

  1. Thanks for this. I would love a place like yours. No wonder you can write such long posts; there’s inspiration where you live. BTW, we have that clock in our kitchen! Good old Ikea!


  2. I love your place – you have a designer’s flair…..very nice indeed.
    All looks fresh and neat…. I can’t believe that you have cooked for more than one in that kitchen….I don’t think I have ever seen such a small cooker. Congrats on your prowess.
    Again – just love your place. Wish yours shower area was not only great to look at, but let you shower with peace of mind!

    jxx PS your camera is doing you proud.


  3. It does have its charm – when it’s not driving me crazy! Kind of like the kittens. 🙂

    The clock is actually a stainless steel one I picked up in England several years ago. The matching barometer hangs beneath it but doesn’t show in the picture.

    The shower is working fine so far. Maybe it’s waiting for winter to give me the cold water treatment again!

    As for the kitchen…if you clean up as you go along, it makes things easier. It’s amazing what you can get used to if you have to!


  4. Great photos of your home, looks very tidy and comfortable, you must be very happy with the results, congratulations with the decor.


  5. Thanks! And Guy – thanks for the compliment!


  6. Suzy, your house is adorable! I want to come visit!
