In The News.





sfgirlbybay gets its first bit of real press when it hits the stands tomorrow in the form of the San Francisco Chronicle. Freelance journalist Ahn-Minh interviewed me a few weeks back about decorating as an apartment dweller, keeping tenant restrictions and budget in mind with inexpensive and vintage furnishings. The Chronicle also had a very nice photographer, Brandt Ward, shoot some pics of my apartment, and then tail me around the Alameda Flea Market (which was pretty embarrassing, and yet hilarious, as he kept an almost undercover profile). So, hopefully there will be a nice glimpse of the flea market experience, if you've never made the trek out there. The article should appear in tomorrow's House & Garden section. I hope you'll take a look.

Wish I could see it from Singapore too. Probably you could provide a link to its internet version? Or a scanned copy would suffice too! Thanks.

Great article! Your apt looks great (as usual) and it was a really nice article.

FYI: the chandelier you have in your dining room - they have an identical one at Burma Superstar...random observation, but I definitely noticed when I went for dinner!
