Eichler dreams

Posted By Jamie Wong >>> 5 Comments

Living in the Bay Area has proven purchasing (or even renting) a decent sized home to be a challenge. Chris is really into the Eichler style homes (who isn’t??) and he’s gotten me really into it too! There are so many original Eichlers all over the Bay Area, especially around where we live, we just need to get our hands on one for ourselves! I’ve been perusing the web, mostly Houzz.com, for elements of my dream home. Here are some Eichler characteristics I want, love and need. Hopefully one day we’ll have an Eichler of our own.

Japanese Packaging

J for Jamie Blog | Japanese Mochi

I think the Japanese have mastered the art of beautiful packaging and it was very noticeable when I visited Japan a few years ago. If there’s one thing I love, it’s good packaging. Luckily we have a little glimmer of Japan right in our own backyards! San Francisco’s Japantown house plenty of unique Japanese stores and restaurants that is a mild resemblance of the real thing. We came across this little shop that had boxes and boxes of beautifully wrapped treats stacked all the way to the ceiling. I was in packaging heaven! Of course, I picked up a box to take home with me – I picked a summer mochi because the box was wrapped in the prettiest delicate cotton fabric.

Asmbly Hall

J for Jamie Blog | Asmbly Hall SF

Asmbly Hall is a stylish husband and wife owned shop on Fillmore Street in San Francisco that my friend Kelly brought me to on the way to the Cherry Blossom Festival. I just love finding shops that have so much of my own style and I can pick something up for Chris at the same time (shopping guilt trip diffused!). I treated myself to the loveliest Dear Creatures maxi dress and I know I’ll be visiting again soon for some summer attire. Asmbly Hall has an online shop so you can peruse and buy clothes from their shop anywhere. They even have rotating local art for sale – it’s the ultimate San Francisco clothing boutique!

Cherry Blossom Festival

J for Jamie Blog | SF Cherry Blossom Festival

It’s Cherry Blossom Festival season! The time of year when there are street fairs, parades and festivals celebrating Japanese culture. Of course in San Francisco, it’s held in the city’s prominent Japantown. I went with a couple friends and we ate delicious Japanese street food, shopped at the booths, watched sushi-making demonstrations and of course, enjoyed the blooming cherry blossoms that lined the streets. It’s one of the more pleasant street festivals in the city – low-key and truly centered around it’s main purpose, Japanese heritage. The good news is it’s 2 weekends in a row so if you missed last weekend’s festival, it’s happening all over again April 19-20 in San Francisco.

Fritz the dog

J for Jamie Blog | Fritz the dog

We got to dog-sit a little guy named Fritz while my co-worker friend Blair was out of town. We were a little nervous to have him at our house with Roxy but surprisingly, she took quite a liking to him – even sharing her bed with him! He is a golden retriever cocker spaniel mix and just the cutest thing. We took Fritz for hike in the Fremont Older to exert some energy, he has a lot of it!

J for Jamie Blog | Site Redesign

I’m so excited to officially share the new look for J for Jamie! This re-design was, once again, done by my talented husband Chris of I Heart Design Studio. He did this for me as a birthday present when I mentioned wanting to refresh the site. I just said I wanted a cleaner look, bigger photos and easy navigation and let Chris take the creative reigns. I am so happy with the outcome, I don’t think anyone else could have known my vision better than my own husband. We have even more exciting projects coming and I can’t wait to tell you all about it here soon!
