A Skateboarder's home...

Who would have thought a Skateboarder's home would look like this? Claire, an interior designer, & Jay, a skateboarder & musician, turned this beautiful old style Victorian in San Francisco into a dream house. They bought their home together for cool $1 million in 2005, can you believe that?! I L-O-V-E what they've done to all the rooms, especially the kitchen!

I am also admiring the steel corrugated fencing (below) that surrounds the backyard area. I'd like to add that type of fencing to the back of my patio area to give it a slightly modern edge. Awesome, no??


Below, Claire painted the mantel in the bedroom Benjamin Moore’s Pool Party Blue

Hi Jen,

your blog is really motivating. the day i stumbled upon your blog and read it, i was inspired to finally start my own one. I actually have a string of blogs that I've started but without any theme or direction. but your blog opened up ideas for me on how to start my own blog!

thanks so much!
