Home Sweet Home Tour: Jackie



I'm so excited for today's Home Sweet Home tour. Welcome to the lovely world of Jackie from Berkeley, CA, whose home is an incredible blend of found vintage and newer, fantastically chosen pieces (some built by her husband). Jackie's a California girl who grew up in LA, and went to school at UC Berkeley. She worked in the arts for 10 years as a grantwriter, then got married, had a kid (the very cute Graham) and then another (the also very cute baby Simon). After some time in New York her family is back in Berkeley, where she runs a consulting business that does fundraising & marketing for non-profit organizations ranging from the arts, to social services, to education.


Jackie's entry - loving that chair



(lamp from West Elm; table found on street, wooden shoes from flea market)





Her charming kitchen...



Master bedroom - I really like Jackie's art. She's collected great pieces from flea markets, etsy, and talented artist friends...



This is her son's room. Her husband made the bed (um, how amazing is that?), and the bird decals are from elly nelly's etsy shop.



(these prints are by Ashley Goldberg)





Jackie's home has a room with map wallpaper that's been there since 1964...



(here's the sweetest picture in the world of her son)



And her basement craft room. (As one of the millions of non-basement California homeowners I am quite jealous of this)

Below - Jackie says the men in her home do all the cooking.

Hmmm. Inciting jealously (mine). Not very helpful! You mustn't feature beautiful houses like this too often or I'll have to stop reading! : )

It's all beautiful but the exterior had me at "hello".

Annie Pazoo said...

I am salivating over the gray exterior, green door, great foyer, wonderful colors, and cozy home. How lovely!

Bethany Hissong said...

I love her home... the best thing about it is that it looks comfortable and inviting. I smiled when I heard her son's name! I wanted to name my son Graham! But it was Craig's turn to pick a name instead!

Audrey said...

LOVE, love, love these home tours. Keep up the great blogging. What a charming home!

Laura said...

Would it possible to list the paint colors that were used on the house? I would love to have them to put in my "house ideas" folder...for my dream house someday! Pretty please!

If ordering from an online ed hardy Clothing store, she should either have tried ed hardy sale the garment on in a store somewhere ed hardy or she had better be buying ed hardy UK from a vendor with a great return ed hardy cheap policy. Buying from an ed hardy Clothes online vendor has its risks and ed hardy store they should be understood. The edhardy.com upside is that online stores christian audigier sale tend to have a large selection ed hardy dresses of clothing to choose from. The ed hardy Polos bad news is they can be more ed hardy sandals expensive, or the cost of shipping and handling ed hardy Jackets can offset any cost savings she might have enjoyed.

The designer louis vuitton are not only the best someone could ask for in terms of quality, but at the same time would add exclusiveness to the personality of women going for the designer Louis Vuitton Suhali Leather replica bags .Having said that, it is one thing to afford such exclusive and expensive vuitton handbags and it is another thing to take care of them.
