Resto Art

Hello all, I am finishing a restaurant design project here in San Francisco area, and installed most of the art yesterday.. thought you might like to see an iPhone take on how it's coming along! 

What do you think of this modern, fresh look? do you like the way the art works with the wallcovering and the mirror? what about that teakwood wall sculpture? Do you like the palette we've chosen?

This beautiful painting is the work of Kerry Vander Meer, a highly regarded artist from the San Francisco Bay area.   


thanks for visiting and
for commenting.. I love
to hear from you!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Vivid Pastel in Provence

May in Provence is a soft time of year. 
The greens are still tender and new, the ochres are gentle, 
the pinks are softly radiant in the still-gentle sunshine.

Of Martha Stewart : Tricia Rose : Rough Linen

If Martha Stewart is as smart as I think she is, tomorrow Tricia Rose of Rough Linen will be a finalist in the Martha Stewart American Made Awards and YOU can cast your vote for her! Believe me, you really should do that. Even if you haven't experienced her linens yourself, you will some day, I am certain of that!

And even if you haven't been lucky enough to have a delightful English tea with her in her atelier, and watch her at work on her custom linens with her wonderful view of the water... well I have, and I am here to tell you she is one very busy and very creative hands on artisan. 

Please get right on over to Martha's site and cast your vote for our own fellow blogger Tricia Rose! Voting starts Friday, September 7.

Then get yourself over to Rough Linen and order your very own luscious linens... go ahead, you need to get ready NOW for the coming wintry months and holidays!

Congratulations Tricia for making it this far with the coveted Martha Stewart American Made Awards!

Summer She Flew

Not believing she's almost gone, and already feeling a little nostalgic for the long lazy days and langorous warm evenings of midsummer, here are a few glimpses of our summer.. for Chris and me here in the San Francisco Bay Area...

a duck I saw, somewhere near the sea.. isn't she pretty?

remember those plums I kept posting about
on Facebook?

I spent as much time as I could in my little greenhouse
this summer.. can you blame me?

maybe take a little break from the rake

our backyard took on a "Maxfield Parish" vibe

walked past this neighbor's roses a thousand times this summer...

...on my way to the farmer's market to buy fresh eggs.

looking straight up through the sunroof while stopped in traffic
on the Golden Gate Bridge this summer

my husband's favorite, we always have
lots of artichokes when they are in

our little room at the Panama Hotel

I did not see enough of these sunsets in Sayulita this summer, that's for sure

walked and stopped here hundreds of times for croissant...
... and cafe au lait

pored over my grandmother and mother's joint passport I found
this summer.. from 1922!.. and this is just the first page! I love

the frame-worthiness of this

...and admired the dahlias and succulents that thrive in the cool..

Hoping yours has been wonderful... and if you live "Down Under"... how lucky you are to be coming into spring with summer soon to follow! Keep us posted with lovely images!

Old Provençal Fireplace, Modern Furniture

Stunning in its simplicity and elegance,
I love this beautiful room in a hotel in Provence:

a soothing palette with soft coral, cream and taupe washed
exposed beams and walls; with the plush and inviting
linen velvet upholstery on the modern seating; love the
touches of mercury glass on the mantel, bringing sparkle
to the room in small doses

hope your weekend is going wonderfully! Kit
