Sfgirlbybay on Location.

A few months ago I rented out my apartment to the UK-based clothing catalog, Boden for a photo shoot location. And today, lo and behold, the Boden Spring catalog appeared in my mailbox. Recognize this room? Yes, she's standing at my desk in the shot. Kinda fun for me to see my place in a whole different light. And, Boden's clothes are super cute, so take a look at their website, if you don't already get their catalogs.

Jenny said...

far out - can't wait to look at it! Which makes me wonder, what would MY place be used as the backdrop for? Probably the "Before" pics in a hardware catalogue, or an interior designer's promo'!! ha!

Jessica said...

That is really awesome. Congrats!

I just started getting the Bodum catalogues a few months ago, I thought the clothes were very stylish...

Jessica said...

make that Boden...sorry its been a long day

Jenny said...

oh no! can't see the catalogue online. don't think they'd send it to Aus. Can you put pics on your site or flickr?

sfgirlbybay said...

This one pic was the only one I could find, and I"m not sure there are more online...I've been to busy to peruse!

They set up like five shots here, but this is the only one in the catalog i could locate. Sorry, Jenny!

Did they happen to include a little Boden frock in with catalogue? As a small gift.

I love their catalogs, but always steal them from my friend but I went online to request a catalog of my own as soon as I saw this. Congrats! Their clothes are so cool and it's really neat that you get to be a part of that!

So funny! I just got my first Boden catalog in the mail yesterday & was totally coveting the blue typewriter in that shot. Is it yours? Thanks for posting this!

sfgirlbybay said...

it was fun, but there were so many people in here i left!

raya - ha! not mine - just a prop. they moved my iMac to make room for the cute typewriter! ;)

Good-Grace said...

WOW!!?! That is so neat! I love Boden... their asethetic is so bright, happy and playful - yet classic. A great fit for a photo shoot at your happy abode!

How cool is that?!

Boden's great. Wondering why would they come to the US to do a shoot?

Yvonne at Yvestown said she liked Boden so I checked them out. I'm on my 3rd order. The duty kills me because I have to order from England (the US won't ship to Canada on this one), but I love the stuff. I have two of the velvet coats.

Enough about me - Congratulations for the exposure.

Aww! Your place in perfect for their shots! I love so many of their skirts. It's really hard for me to buy a skirt when it's 2 degrees outside....but I still enjoy the pics:) Congrats!

LINDSAY said...

Also---do you have a public flickr account where you store inspiration photos? I didn't see a link. I'm sprucing up a few rooms and need some inspiration. Your style always seems so effortless and cheery...I'd love to see some interiors shot that inspire you...

so funny--when that catalog arrived in the mail, i started giggling at all the SF places in the background; fantastic that one of them is yours! (made me very homesick, too...)

drollgirl said...

thank you for the tip on these great clothes! can't wait to get the catalogue! and your place is TO-DIE-FOR.

I've gotten this catalog since Boden began a US version -- but when my catalog arrived yesterday it was the first time I really noticed how great the backgrounds were. How fitting that one of my fave blogs is a part of it.
