I finished my move this past weekend, but there's still a mountain of boxes staring me in the face at my new place. I made a wish upon a star last night that someone, preferably Oprah-approved, would come and turn this mess into pristinely organized perfection.

Last night was the gala dinner for the tenth anniversary of DIFFA’s Dining By Design in San Francisco. And it was the first time I got to put oversized sparkling rocks in my earlobes and go to the dinner myself

This Saturday and Sunday Hudson's Gallery offers the goods from nine estates under one roof at their warehouse in Oakland. The amount of inventory for sale is staggering, numbering into the thousands of items. It's kind of like the design center of used furniture and accessories.

Everyone loves the classics, and a new crop of entertaining accessories takes a fresh look at time-honored favorites.

When people ask Jonah Ward what type of artist he is, he’s often met with puzzled stares after he tells them that he “burns wood with glass.” But once Ward whips out his iPod and shows a short video of himself in the studio, the confusion quickly turns into bug-eyed fascination.

You may have seen Los Angeles photographer Sharon Montrose's animal prints before, but have you seen this delightful Flying Geese print? Although Montrose writes, "It's really just two geese at a fraction of a second," I love how they appear to be flying—or, in my eyes, dancing.

If you're in the market for some home-related purchases, there are lots of ways to do your shopping and save a little money this weekend.

When it comes to interiors and architecture, San Francisco loves a good show. Off the top of my head I can think of three major annual home tours or showcase houses, and that's not counting the myriad of smaller ones that pop up each spring and fall. But take it from a women who goes to (nearly) all of them, the Elle Decor Showhouse is not-t0-be-missed (purchase tickets here). There are at least eight reasons why.

  Got a hankering to make a design statement in a small space? Dean Larkin of architecture firm, Dean Larkin Design did just that in his own office.

  It's not every day you can buy a house with a foyer modeled after the Pantheon in Rome, but just such a rarity is on the market in Los Angeles, asking $5.495M. Now's your chance.
