A few weeks ago, on one of those warm end of summer days, I jumped in the back of a yellow taxi to visit the legendary Scalamandre townhouse.

Last week the lovely team at Serena & Lily held a Nursery Style 101 Event at their headquarters in Sausalito, CA. I have to say that being a San Francisco based blogger I was thrilled to have the opportunity to attend a local nursery design event for designers and soon to be local moms.
