7 Things Janelle Loevner, Owner of Anthem, Can’t Live Without

Janelle Loevner, owner of the new luxury home boutique Anthem, on posh Sacramento Street, dishes with us on the seven items the former residential architect and Pac Heights resident just can’t live without.

 

We Heart the Mission Saturday Stroll

Despite the hipsters, drug addicts, and occasional puke-spattered sidewalk, you'd be hard-pressed to find someone in the city that doesn't have a little place in their heart for the Mish. Why? The food, unique shops, and independent spirit keep everyone coming back. Show your love this Saturday by popping into some of your favorite neighborhood haunts in support of We Heart the Mission, a "midwinter stroll" featuring  sales, parties, and all sorts of incentives for keeping it local. For instance, you'll find 10% off everything at BellJar or 20% off in-store purchases at Rare Device...

Valentine's Day Gifts at Design Public

Shopping for that special gift for your special someone on that special day can be so... exhausting.  Flowers and chocolates will do, but they're usually lacking in the creative department.  Thankfully, Design Public did the work for you by going through its products and selected the best gifts for Valentine's Day.  From Alexander Girard's iconic Love Heart print (see photo to the left), to a fashion-forward modern beanbag, you're bound to find something for your special someone.

Deals at Flora Grubb

The fallback gift for Valentine's Day is usually to say it with flowers, but this year why not say it with a potted planted? It's the gift that keeps giving, seeing as it won't be tossed out in a week, and with the big sale going on over at Flora Grubb this month, it's a cost-effective choice too. Get 25% off on all garden plants that are 2 gallons or larger, and 25% off most garden furniture and accessories. We're particularly fond of their stock tanks (shown here) which would work perfectly as a little garden container for the urban green thumb you adore.

Love's in the Air at Jonathan Adler

It seems love is in the air over at Jonathan Adler, where the four letter word is emblazoned on everything from porcelain fists to tissue boxes.

New Vintage Furnishings (And a Sale!) at Lotus Bleu

Lotus Bleu will be having a sale throughout the month of February so that they can make room for the new additions to their collection.  The new pieces aren't really new at all, rather, they're reinvented.  For instance, In the photo to the left there's a slipper chair in the bottom left-hand corner.  Although it was designed in the 1950's or 60's, it's been updated with a beautiful and bright silk-screened linen pattern of colorful flowers and leaves, which give it it more of a modern appeal.  Embrace this great weather and bring some of the outside in, al la vintage prettiness and floral linens.  Sale runs through February.  Select items between 20-40% off.

30 Days of Discounts at Limn

Things are abuzz at the courtyard of Limn, where for the next month they'll be unveiling sales upon sales in their "30 Days of Discounts" event going on now. Expect to see items for designers such as ArmaniCasa, B&B Italia, Tom Dixon, Zanotta, and many more. Products available include furniture, rugs, lighting, and accessories... really it's quite a selection. Limn's San Francisco showroom is located at 290 Townsend Street right by the Caltrain station, so make sure to stop by!

7 Things Kendall Wilkinson Can’t Live Without

Kendall Wilkinson, formerly of Patina Atelier and Threshold, just opened up Kendall Wilkinson Home last May in SF’s Laurel Heights district. Originally from Mill Valley, Kendall gave us a peek into what makes her tick.

30% Off Furniture at Oakland's Mignonne

A mix is always better - mixed nuts, mix CDs, mixed drinks - we'll take 'em all. And it seems that Kim and Johnelle Mancha, the mother-daughter team behind Mignonne, feel the same way. The selection at their Oakland store is a mix of new items, vintage finds, and repurposed pieces that are all equally desirable. And right now, all furniture is 30% off through February 3rd. Another reason to head over? The ladies of Mignonne have added furniture refinishing to their list of services.

Get your Kitsch at Urban Outfitters

Urban Outfitters has always been a great place to score funky and cool home accessories on the cheap.  They recently added a bunch of fun new items to their website, and most of them are quite kitschy, which (with limited applications...) can help give an otherwise drab interior a little spunk and cleverness.  Check out the top 5 Kitschy items at Urban Outfitters:
