Dad and Stepmom's House

My stepmother has good taste. It doesn't hurt to live 45 minutes from the Design Center. Lucky.
Here are some pics of their house in Half Moon Bay, CA.

She wanted a dog. So my dad bought her a Blue Dog by George Rodrigue (on the wall).
Oly coffee table, Rogers and Goffigon fabric on sofa with Jim Thompson silk pillows, Thomas Pheasant for Baker lamps, mohair club chair and seagrass rug.

Carver's Guild sunburst mirror and Oly Studio bookshelf.

Galbraith and Paul pendant. Vintage mismatched wingbacks in Nancy Corzine crewel on the front and mohair on the back.

Vintage stained wicker chairs in Pindler & Pindler's linen with Raoul Textiles pillows. Unlucky zebra on floor. Trot faster, friend.

Peter Dunham pillows on the sofa and Bergamo on the ottoman. Mercury glass lamps from Park Monceau Antiques in Atlanta...conveniently located next to Mrs. Howard.

Phillip Jeffries grasscloth, vintage farm table, Hickory Chair chairs with Alan Campbell's Zig Zag.
Vintage Italian prints from me (ebay).

Super cool vintage gilded yoga speed skater lamps from ebay. Old chests from The Heights antique store in Portland, OR.

Awesome kitchen with calcutta marble. I hate my kitchen. Hate hate hate. Did I say I hate my kitchen? I want a good kitchen when I grow up. Just like this.


  1. let's just say, if you ever to grow up to be worthy enough for a kitchen like that, I would hop on a plane and cook for you. I think I have those dish towels. (but not that kitchen)

  2. What a stunning house- I love everything!! Do you know what the paint colors are?? I'm totally loving all the gray tones

  3. I recently came accross your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I dont know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.



Tell me what you really think.
