House Call

Have you ever wondered what our apartment looks like? Have you ever wondered what it looks like when I’ve spent a few days obsessively mopping and dusting with Q-tips, because I know the Internet is about to see it? Well then, head on over to Apartment Therapy San Francisco and have a look. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll wonder where we put all the toys.

Between the Mighty Haus launch, the launch party, moderating a panel at Blogher, and attending the conference, I have lots and lots to tell you. It’s been a good week.

    I had a blast meeting you at the party and at the book signing! Our pictures turned out very nice:)

    Let me know if I can do anything for you with your launch, etc.

    Bird By Bird? Just when I thought my adoration of you had reached its limit.

  • evany Says:

    The apartment looks spectacular! Would it be okay if I moved in? I could make you and Bryan Glass Houses every evening and tuck myself under Hank’s crib at night…?

  • rena Says:

    you are the queen of the county, miss maggie. thanks for the props, it warms my fuzzy little heart!

    I am in love withe the color and the bubbles in the nursery – they are spectacularly gorgeous!! What a great room to wake up in. Your apartment is fantastic.

  • superblondgirl Says:

    And my reply to your post is overly gushy, ugh, but it’s so true. : )

  • Jenn Says:

    Love, love, love the portrait and the tea lights in the hall. Gorgeous Maggie!

  • Laurie Says:

    You create such a beautiful environment for your family and friends…everything really does have meaning and a story. I really admire and am inspired by that.

  • Ella Says:

    They must invent a name for that disease where you tell everyone what you paid for an item after a compliment on it.

    I have it too. “nice dress…’
    “OH! H&M, $5”

    I even leave price tags on shirts I buy my husband at the Gap outlet so he can see what a victory my shopping day was…

  • Karen Andrews (miscmum) Says:

    I have that Ann Lamott book you had a shot of with the Harpers mag. I had to pay an import tax to get it too, so lucky I really like it!

  • Steph Says:

    I want to see the paintings of tiny Hank screaming his head off!

  • andrea Says:

    I’m drooling over your apartment! And seriously, where do you keep the toys?

  • Spring Says:

    Oh, Maggie. Seeing Bird by Bird on your nightstand just brought tears to my eyes. Changed my life, that book.

    What a lovely home. I just might steal your bookshelf idea. Bookshelves are something I always need more of, and those 3-footers are cheaper than others.

  • Desiree Says:

    I wanna see the paintings of Hank, too!!

  • A Whole Lot of Nothing Says:

    Your house is my aspiration, but unfortunately, between my laziness and lack of motivation (same?), it will stay MessyHouse.

    Thanks for the peek!

  • Jennifluff Says:

    I am amazed at how clutterless your place is considering you inspire others to buy “stuff” for a living! What restraint!

    Your style inspires me…I need more things with a story (other than, yeah, the cat really likes to sharpen his claws on that).

  • Melis Says:

    Mighty Girl you inspire me! I love your site, and the pics of your apartment are incredible!

    I am just a teeny tiny baby in the world of blogging, have only been doing this for a few months, but I must say, I love it. If you happen to visit my site, I would appreciate your input.

    You’re great! Rock on!

  • elayne Says:

    You know what would rock? If you set up a Mighty Redecorating site where people send in pictures of their problem rooms or areas and you offer suggestions (and products) based on your own impeccable sense of style. You could charge a certain amount per “makeover” and make a fortune in a month. And since I suggested it, I get mine for free, right?

    Dang. Well, it was worth a shot.

    Srsly. I wish I knew someone like you IRL. I have just moved into a house that has a couple of really awkwardly arranged rooms and I am good at copying ideas (like your tealights on the wall), but absolutely useless at innovating anything to solve my own decorating difficulties. My friends’ advice all boils down to “It looks fine how it is,” but I don’t WANT it “how it is.” Everything I do come up with involves spending several thousand dollars to tear down walls. Oh well.

  • Aimee Greeblemonkey Says:

    Love the apartment pics, what fun! I need to make my own “Plan Less Do More” frame.

    And it was great to see you guys this weekend.

  • Laura Says:

    Love it! I do wonder where you keep all your stuff… *jealous, but in a good way*

  • Mommy Cracked Says:

    I love getting a peek inside other peoples’ homes. I love your style!
