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.
After 12 short months, and DIY aplenty, their space is airy, modern, and full of personality — which shows us there's much to learn from the aesthetes out west. (We're not the only ones who think so; the couple was recently featured in Anthology magazine, too.) Click ahead for Angela's smart home-office tricks and all the DIY details that went into this perfect palace for two.
