It seems like just yesterday I moved to San Francisco and embarked on the process of decorating my new home- you can see the full tour here. It was a blank canvas heaven for me- every design lovers dream. I savored each moment of the process (even the stressful ones), stretching my decorating limits, trying out new ideas, like a dark, moody color for the living room walls, and listening to that whisper inside that said, “Indulge in a pink bedroom while you’re still single and can!”

That apartment went on to become a very special one for me simply because it symbolizes my last home as just me. Soon after I moved to San Francisco, I met the wonderful man who became my husband last June. With our marriage came a new home for me and so I packed up my Bachelorette Pad, as I affectionately call it, to start the next exciting chapter in my life (and new decorating project!).

Sadly, I couldn’t bring everything with me when my husband and I combined belongings. It’s pained me to know that many of my beloved pieces from the Bachelorette Pad have been sitting in storage without a place to call home. So, when I learned about the new resale site and “pre-loved” furniture and decor marketplace, Chairish I was over the moon! This sounded liked the perfect place for me to sell my pieces in hopes of finding a new home for them. Teaming up with Chairish has been a seller’s (and buyer’s!) dream- they take the hassle out of the logistical process so you can focus on the fun part: passing on your furniture and decor and/or decorating your home. And if you’re interested in selling your home decor, Chairish has an iPhone app that makes it super easy!

Though the thought of parting with some of these pieces is difficult (like this sweet tufted fainting sofa and the vintage mirror picked up at a flea market), it makes so much more sense to have them enjoyed by new owners, rather than collecting dust in storage. So, I’m excited to share today that I’m selling over 31 pieces from my personal collection of furniture and decor on Chairish. My hope is that these pre-loved items will bring you as much joy and use as they’ve brought me. The sale starts now, so hop over and check it out before everything is spoken for!
