    R29 may be based on the East Coast, but one of our most lovely tastemakers lives across the country. Meet Angela Tafoya, our effortlessly stylish S.F. editor. While she's been sussing out the greatest in tech, dining, fashion, and beauty in the Bay Area for five years (and writing for the site for three), she and her fiancé, artist Eric Bailey, moved into their current nest in the Mission District about a year ago.

Click ahead for Angela's smart home-office tricks and all the DIY details that went into this perfect palace for two.
