Design Trends and Fun in San Francisco


Happy Summer!  I've been out and about in SF and want to show you some things on my radar...

First, on Friday, my friend Mindy and I toured the SF Decorator's Showcase (ends on Memorial Day).
Some highlights...
Designer: Martin Kobus Home
Photographer:  Russell Abrahams


In a tiny, neutral study, this papered ceiling really pops.
Blossoms floating in glass...



How about this Fortuny table skirt?
I'm stealing this idea of ferns and moss in the base of the tree...

Next stop...the new Minted store downtown...
It's fun to be able to see and touch items that before were only available on line...like

You can make an appointment for party planning.
There is a new, massive Apple store in Union Square with a two story fountain.
I like this herb planter idea at the downtown Anthro store (smells great too)...but does the flatware placement seem funny?
 It's a beautiful weekend here in SF.  Our daughter and her friend are visiting and we are  having lots of fun.   We went to the Oscar de la Renta exhibit yesterday and I'm taking them back to the Minted store and general walking around town.  What are you up to?

  2. Love Showhouses and this one was super!
    The flatware isn't set the way I was "taught"!

  4. Thanks for sharing since it's a bummer that I haven't been in town to see the house for myself. And will definitely be checking out the new Minted store!

    1. I know, Shelley! It's fun that they let you take photos so you can relive it.

  7. Looks like such fun and beautiful weather. Yes, I do wish I could have seen the Oscar de la Renta exhibit. It rained most of the weekend here, as it is now, but we're headed out to Santa Monica on Thursday for some sunshine and beach!
