bits and pieces of Sacramento Street

Caitlin’s blog, Sacramento Street, has been a long time favourite of mine and I can’t describe to you how excited I am to have her here today. Chances are, you’ve seen her stunning San Fransisco apartment throughout the blogosphere by now as it has definitely made its rounds, and for good reason. The girl is simply bubbling over with style. Here are some bits & pieces of Caitlin…

::A random fact::
My first language was Sinhala, the main language of Sri Lanka. My babysitter when I was little taught it to me so that I could communicate with her daughter.

::Your go-to recipe::
Carbonara. (No.1)

::You can’t live without::
Not surprising, but my iPhone, it’s literally my third hand.

::Currently coveting::
For my home, a Moroccan Oushak rug. I have a friend that picked up a few on his trip there and I’m incredibly jealous.
For my closet, I’ve been lusting after this Rolex watch. I love that it’s big and the camel leather strap is just yummy. Also on my wish list – a Celine handbag. The simplicity and clean lines make each handbag so stunning. (No. 2 & 3)

::Your daily reads::
Simple Lovely, Wit & Delight, Apartment 34 and Miss Moss

::On your playlist::
The Florence and the Machine pandora station.

::Your favourite quote::
I’ve got two current favorites – “There is nothing like a dream to create the future” and “Be Silly, Be Honest, Be Kind” by Ralph Waldo Emerson

::On your night stand::
The latest issue of Kinfolk, Vogue Living Australia, back issues of Domino, Bossypants, a picture of Eric and I from prom and an Astier elephant.

::Your favourite designer::
Michele Janezic, she’s a local fashion designer here in San Francisco. I don’t know what I would do without her line. My closet is filled with her beautiful clothes. What I love most about each piece that she makes is the simplicity. It makes everything incredibly chic.

::In your wishing well::
Oh my goodness, there are so many things on my bucket list. To list a few; travel to Morocco, drive across the country antiquing and sourcing every step of the way (going to Brimfield and Round Top are a must), purchase a home, and get a puppy (currently obsessing over aussiedoodles).

::Your dream home::
I’d love to find an Edwardian style home here in San Francisco that we could fix up to make our own. I dream of having Farrow & Barrel “All White” walls, open shoveling kitchen with beautiful marble and a floor plan on the main floor that is open so that when we entertain everyone feels included – because if not, everybody will end up in the kitchen.

If that dream doesn’t pan out then a tiny spanish style bungalow in Mill Valley would be equally as perfect.

::Your happy place::
Home. When I come home every night from work the stress gets lifted from my shoulders and I feel relaxed. What’s funny is that I constantly call it my happy place. (No. 4 & 5)
