Thank you so much for the sweet words on yesterday’s home tour video! We filmed this a few months ago, but I was waiting until after the holiday madness to share it so it could have its own time to shine. I’m absolutely dedicated to creating more video content in 2019 but putting together one video is probably the same expense/effort that 5+ photo blog posts take, so I definitely want to be intentional with the themes and topics we cover. If you have any subjects you would like to see covered in video, please let me know in the comments and be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel to get the heads up on all future videos!
Yesterday’s post was a quick walk-through of the space, so today I’m sharing photos of all the little nooks and crannies so you can see the detail, as well as product links for most everything at the bottom of this post.
We went from about 1200 square feet (not including a garage and patio) in our Orange County townhouse to around 1000 square feet in San Francisco (we do have a garage spot but no outdoor space). For two 5’7″ and 6’3″ adults, an 88 lb. labrador, three legged cat and home office… we are cozy, ha!
We definitely look forward to having more space in the future (particularly storage as we essentially have one small coat closet as this year’s storage), but we also know that there will be times we’ll look back at this small apartment fondly. Christian and I joke that we’ll probably never be able to get from the bedroom to the kitchen for a glass of water as quickly ever again (it’s like… 10 steps).

If you see anything else that is not linked, it’s either because I don’t know the source or it is no longer available for purchase. Thank you so much for reading this novel! It’s wild to think that in only 5 more months we’ll be packing up this space and moving onto the next (city and state TBD)… but I am manifesting that it has a yard and no shared walls. I’m saying that jokingly… but also not at all. I’ve been sharing walls with strangers for 7 of the past 8 years and I’d really like my own walls!
Thank you so much for reading today – and it’s such a privilege to share this little space with you guys! You can find all home-related content in the “home” category of this site, including our home tour video in OC. Big hugs and have a beautiful weekend – XO
