It’s no surprise that interior designer Ken Fulk‘s book was titled Mr. Ken Fulk’s Magical World because he really is a magician. No where is this more apparent that his newest creation the Saint Joseph’s Arts Society in an old historic church San Francisco that sat empty since an earthquake. The private arts and social club has […]

I usually stay at the Hotel Drisco when I visit San Francisco and last year I stayed at the Four Seasons. I’m hoping to return to San Francisco this fall to celebrate the publication of the book The Curated Home by my dear friend Grant K. Gibson and might give the new Proper Hotel a […]

I love walking through the Pacific and Presidio Heights neighborhoods every time I visit San Francisco. I don’t remember seeing this Tudor house designed by Hillary Thomas which is a shame. The stunner featured in Architectural Digest is full of classic details and beautiful colors. I especially love the custom pale blue/grey color of the […]

Traditional design often gets a bad rap but in the right hands, it can look fresh instead of fuddy duddy. The clients who hired interior designer Miles Redd and architect Gil Schafer to design their San Francisco home actually suggested the look and had Pinterest boards to help convey their vision. The wife said, “Antiques are […]

I love visiting San Francisco because I have so many lovely friends who live in the city and because it has such a robust design community. My recent 10th Anniversary trip to San Francisco before heading to Napa was a little rushed. I got to visit a lot of my favorite places but didn’t have […]

When you visit San Francisco, you start to realize how many places Ken Fulk has designed in the city. I’ll have more on this next week but until then, I wanted to revisit one of his finest design projects in the Presidio Heights area of the city that was featured in Elle Decor last year. […]

As I mentioned a little while back, I’m celebrating my ten year blog anniversary with a trip to San Francisco and Napa, California with my friend from Utah and we’re off today. JetBlue is the best airline to fly from New York to San Francisco and I look forward to trying their new JetBlue Mint  first class that […]

Thank you for all the lovely ten year blog anniversary messages and comments. By the way, did you know you can leave comments on blog posts again? I’ve responded to all of them on Instagram but I’m still trying to get through all the emails. I really appreciate all the love and continued support. To […]

More is More

The incessant rain lately has been great for spring cleaning and organizing. As I was throwing out magazines, I came across the home of retired Hyatt executive John Mayberry in San Francisco in House Beautiful. He downsized from a 4,000 square-foot house in Georgia to this 900 square-foot rental apartment and still managed to hang his entire art […]

Everyone keeps asking me when I’m going back to California and now I have another reason to book a trip. One Kings Lane has just opened a new chic Studio in San Francisco that’s filled with great decorating pieces for summer. The best part is that if you can’t visit the Studio in person, you can […]

People in Glass Houses

11 . 25 . 14

I was lucky enough be invited to stay at the Chafen’s new house in Napa Valley when I visited them. It is located a short drive from the Dutch Henry Winery but has its own vineyard outside the front door that had just been planted. Every time I looked out the windows, I questioned why […]

Chic at Work: Everlane

11 . 17 . 14

I’ve been wearing Everlane since 2012 so when I was in San Francisco, I couldn’t wait to pay a visit to their office to see where the magic happens. For those of you not familiar with them, Everlane is billed as “luxury essentials without traditional retail markeups.” It was founded by Michael Preysman who decided to rethink […]
