Everything is slowly finding its home in our peaceful bedroom - San Francisco, CA
By - Chiinori
LOL. I could never compromise on windows because I have plants. I rented rooms without closets before, but never one without windows. Definitely feel very lucky to have big windows. My old apartment is West facing and I still miss the many beautiful summer sunsets I got to see from the living room.
I used to live there for a very long time and got priced out, however now that Ms. Rona came to town you can actually find some decent spots in an affordable range. It's almost like the San Francisco of yore.
So true re: coming back to town. When we toured this place, management was offering 8 weeks free, but to further entice us, they were willing to offer 10 weeks free, so effectively we'd pay less for what we were paying for our old place and would have the motivation to move.
Makes it very hard to find him when he stays perfectly still...
Can you also share the link for 3 pots stand?
Not OP but I believe I own the same plant stand, [here](https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/satsumas-plant-stand-bamboo-white-40258154/) at IKEA.
I got it secondhand, but it's from [IKEA.](https://ikea.com/us/en/p/satsumas-plant-stand-bamboo-white-40258154/)
Amazing light in this room!
Why do you keep your plants in plastic pots inside terra-cotta pots?
I find it easier to repot, especially since calatheas and marantas grow so quickly.
This room is gorgeous. Where did you get your nightstand?
Thank you. The nightstand is [this one.](https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MYAK4CZ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1)
Where’s your duvet cover from?
It's a clearance linen duvet cover from [West Elm,](https://www.westelm.com/m/products/belgian-linen-duvet-cover-shams-b1580/?pkey=s%7Clinen%20duvet%20cover%7C50) but I never see the mint green color coming around anymore.
Agh I didn’t find the ones from West Elm to last very long :(
Somehow I've yet to find any duvet cover that doesn't lose the strings to tie it to the corners of the duvet, but I got this one on a bargain so I feel less bad 😂
What’s kitty’s name? Beautiful bedroom and beautiful cat!
Thank you! His name is Benji and he's benjithesfkitty on Instagram.
That poster gives me feels
Looks lovely. Your plants are begging for a humidifier though ;)
Where did you get the van gogh poster?
I bought a printable from Etsy and printed it at Walgreens.
Guitar awaiting new neck*
I wondered when someone was going to mention this. Leaving your guitar in direct sunlight, rested against a window is a fool proof way to fuck it up beyond repair.
Uhmm...that's why it's on a guitar mount.
Definitely. I hope it wasn't in the sun too long! I use those same mounts for my guitars. They're great!
Direct sunlight (mount or not) will bend the wood. Can go from "needing to adjust the truss rod" to "fuck beyond repair". If it was in the direct sunlight for the picture, that's OK and it actually looks very nice but we are telling you this just so you can take better care of your instrument! Cheers and beautiful bedroom!
The sun never reaches the wall where the guitar is mounted. Thanks.
Your plants need water and less light. The tips are burning
They are doing great, thanks for asking.
Pretty but your calatheas look a little sad - probably from too much sunlight being next to the windows. They enjoy dappled indirect light
They are next to a Northwest-facing windows, so they are actually tucked away from strong light for most of the day. They are not at their peak aesthetics and look a bit unruly, but actually thriving and giving me new leaves constantly. Plus the movement through out the day - they look like this in the picture, but at night, the leaves fold up.
Ohhh nice northwest windows sound ideal! I only have south facing windows so all my plants burn to a crisp if they’re that close to a window
I miss south-facing windows, but my partner had enough of these heat waves 😂
Love how bright and clean it is! Have more pics you can share?
Thank you. Here's the modest half of the [home office](https://www.reddit.com/r/AmateurRoomPorn/comments/jbsnl2/my_side_of_the_home_office_san_francisco_ca/)
Where days you get the lamps on the nightstand?
The lamps are [here.](https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07WJSWL35/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1)
Where did you get your Van Gogh poster? Your room is beautiful
Not as beautiful as yo momma
^I ^am ^a ^bot. ^Downvote ^to ^remove. ^[PM](https://www.reddit.com/message/compose/?to=YoMommaJokeBot) ^me ^if ^there's ^anything ^for ^me ^to ^know!
I got it as a printable from Etsy and print it at Walgreens.
The first picture could be a sims4 build. I seriously love it
Also, cute kitty cat!
😍😍😍 Source for the bedside table and plant stand?
Both are secondhand, but the plant stand is from [IKEA](https://ikea.com/us/en/p/satsumas-plant-stand-bamboo-white-40258154/) and the nightstand is from [Amazon](https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MYAK4CZ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1).
Thank you! 🙏 How about the lamps? 💡
Wow this looks amazing
Waking up to natural light = waking up like a king
I have the exact same lamp. 😍
What camera/lens did you use? I love the vibe
It's my Samsung S8 - you can tell I don't change smartphones often. :P
Whaaat, I have a Samsung S9 and my pictures do not look this good hahaha
What kind of plants do you have?
In the bedroom alone (left to right) are calathea makoyana, maranta leuconeura, calathea vittata, varigated rubber plant, and a peperomia obtusifolia.
Why the spoiler tag?
That first picture is straight up Instagram material
Calm, cool, introspective. I like it so much.
Have you considered a [burled](https://www.michaelscustomframing.com/shop-products/custom-frames/photo-and-art-prints/47929216.html?lang=en_US&cm_mmc=PLASearch-_-google-_-MICH_Shopping_US_N_Custom+Frames_N_Smart_BOPIS_N-_-&Kenshoo_ida=&kpid=go_cmp-10440013891_adg-112057545308_ad-445601179393_pla-293946777986_dev-c_ext-_prd-47929216&gclid=CjwKCAjwiaX8BRBZEiwAQQxGx1Opq4EQo54BPmu6DBR2897L5FSQJngKciRCLNU1uqyIbrnaES8-JhoCmCUQAvD_BwE) poster frame? Catches both Van Gogh's famous brush strokes and connects to the furniture while letting the image float a bit more. The two tables are over-matched - maybe tuck something like [this](https://www.framedart.com/plout/blue-birds-on-wires-print-966992.htm?sku=P966992&source=organic&ad=P966992_GoogleShopping&utm_source=google&utm_medium=organic&utm_campaign=shoppingfeed&utm_term=966992) behind the lamp & plant by the window. Echoes the accent colors and mood of the room without taking up visual space. The other side of the bed needs a secondary focal point - switching for a [terra cotta](https://www.etsy.com/listing/872751989/vintage-lisa-larson-style-pottery-cat?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=terracotta+cat+pot&ref=sr_gallery-1-9&organic_search_click=1&cns=1) personality piece keeps the minimal.
Thanks for the suggestion, but that's just not my taste.
It really is. It's just your taste in layers. Not the cat! The pot was illustration, basically I'm saying 'accent spot there.'
Agree to disagree. I actually dislike all the products and placements you suggest, so I'm pretty sure they are not at all what I want. They might work great for another room, but not this one where I specifically want everything this way.
I like your room. Cerebral, yet homey.
What’s the rent like?
The lowest in the last 4 years.
I live in Sac and I’ve noticed it’s the exact opposite. Do you personally know people moving to East Bay/Sac?
Oh ya that’s a sexy room
