A Designer-Friendly Alamo Square Home

On the border of Alamo Square Park (overlooking the Full House family's famous picnic spot!) lives Janette Yost Crawford, head of expansion for Homepolish and mother to 3-year-old Viv. With a deep love for comfortable, practical, and beautiful design, one of Janette's solutions for both a toddler-and visitor-friendly home (translation: enough space for play dates and a neighborly cocktail hour—not necessarily mutually exclusive events) was to keep half of the living room furniture free.

Mother's Day Contest at Flora Grubb

Giving your mom a bouquet of flowers is sweet, but come on - the woman gave birth to you. You can do a little better than that. Get her something that'll last longer than a week by taking her over to Flora Grubb this weekend. She can pick from their wide selection of succulents, herbs, or flowers, choose a colorful pot, and tada! A gift for your mama that will last until next Mother's Day and beyond. Also, stop by this Sunday and all moms will be entered to win a $100 gift certificate from the store - much more enjoyable than that old Safeway bouquet, right?

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.
