A San Francisco Treat

A few weeks ago, Joni and I were in San Francisco meeting with our new clients who have purchased a casali (farmhouse) at Castello di Casole.  One of the best things about travel is being inspired by the people and places we visit.  San Francisco is such a beautiful city with its own cool vibe and fabulous views. We were only there two days but accomplished a lot with our clients and managed to squeeze in a bit of fun as well!

Here are a few photos of some things we found particularly inspiring in San Fran!

The lobby at the Clift Hotel was designed by Philippe Stark. The colors are warm with pops of pale pink.  The dim lighting and dramatic fireplace create a very intimate, cozy space.

Yes – That is a huge oversized chair!

We met up with my friend Shannon (former J Bankser) at the Red Room Bar.

We fell in love with these classic Art Deco light fixtures.

Instead of a chocolate on your pillow, they leave you a postcard with these words of wisdom. Who knew Mark Twain was into fashion?!?

We did have a chance to get in a little retail therapy and were excited to see that color is definitely here for spring.

Joni introduced me to my newest LOVE… Britex Fabrics. Located downtown on Geary Street, this place is four stories of Designer Disneyland!

The fourth floor is all remnants of fabrics at great prices. Check out our haul!

Look for these Missoni fabrics on our retail floor soon. (Pillows or a fab ottoman?)

Baci,

    I loved your post. We used to live in the Bay area and love everything about California. Make sure you get to the Lake Tahoe area next time you are out there. We still own a home there and that’s where we spend our summers. I agree with the shopping. I have made a trip or two to Britex fabrics.
