The story of my first major home renovation in San Francisco. Watch as my pink mid-century home is transformed…one choice at a time. I’ve given 100’s of clients advice on colors, what’s trending, good resale choices... and now it’s my turn. Oh, and I’ll still be helping people buy and sell homes, shuttling my kids around, and having some fun!

Sweet Smell of…

Copper plumbing! After 3+ years of not being able to flush a toilet while someone else was showering, we so look forward to all new copper plumbing. Our old plumbing was ripped out and the new is going in. Can’t wait for our new showers with good water pressure!

Slab Heaven

First time to IRG to look at slabs. Still torn between quartzite and a Quartz composite- one does better with red wine spills and one with hot pots- I’m guilty of mishandling both!

Thankful for Wise Counsel

Windows and doors ordered! That is a big relief since turnaround is about 8 weeks. Albert at Bonelli was awesome to work with and gave me ideas neither I nor our architect had considered. He’s a genius for modern Windows and I highly recommend him! From type of glass to hinges, levers, kick plates and alignment- call him – Bonelli!

Too many decisions!

From tile which ranges in price from $6-$100 a square foot to picking the kitchen sink, too many decisions in this operation! And there’s a learning curve for each item- sinks: curved or sharp corners, depth, quality of stainless steel, noise transfer…the list goes on. I now understand why your 2nd or 3rd renovation is so much easier!
