Seeing as I am new to San Francisco and only know a fraction of the antique stores in comparison to NYC, this "grand prize" felt impossible. I woke up the next morning at 7:00 am on the dot like I do every day and was completely anxious about the dream I had just had. An hour or so later, after finishing breakfast with a friend, I was still unable to shake the dream, so I decided that the only way to ease my anxiety would be to face the challenge head on!
The inspiration piece for my bedroom scheme started with the actual burlwood desk that I found and purchased for myself in Petaluma a few weeks ago, because it just so happens to be scheduled for delivery this Tuesday night at my new apartment!
Seeing as it was a Sunday, and most antique stores are closed, I had to open my trusty bookmarks bar on my internet browser and start shopping the web. Keeping in the constraints of the 24hr challenge, I limited myself to only sourcing items items in stock and currently for sale in San Francisco.
Here is my gorgeous dream bedroom that could feasibly be bought all in one day! (with the help of an American Express card and a moving van!)
