A Local Designer Shows Us Her Rad Boat-Like Home & Workspace

Need some inspiration for the upcoming America's Cup, touching down in S.F. next week? Look no further than lovely local Susan Hoff, a sea-centric designer who hawks dreamy bags made out of reclaimed sails. We became obsessed with her accessories after seeing them at some of our fave shops (Voyager, Gravel & Gold, etc.) and just had to meet the woman behind the brand.
Turns out, she's just as unique as her one-of-a-kind creations — and so is her Valencia Street home-slash-studio. The totally rad boat-like space features a rustic work area and a sleeping bunker that the blonde babe made herself, inspired by living on the waves as a sailing instructor. Dive into the impressive space right here, plus get Hoff's sailor-approved guide to the city.
