Tactility

Fall is upon us.. (although the summer is just about to get going here in San Francisco). However, it's September, which ushers in a season of wool, flannel, tweed, cashmere and lots of plaid- not to mention thoughts of cider, apple picking, crispy nights, boots, fall fashion and cozy blankets. Such things make me swoon.

Road Tripping

Itching to get on a long open road with key essential components: my lover, dog, good friends, CD's, jacquard blankets, and gear. But first, I need to get my hands on some old school wheels...

After party (post Studio 54)

I had so much fun working with Catherine Kwong on the design and development of our Rock n Roll Hideaway for the SF Decorator Showcase. It was thrilling to bring Mick and Bianca back to life and design the Living Room of this 115 year old Edwardian mansion around their aura. The main feature is the painted floor, expertly finished by the talented Stancil Studios- inspired by the poetic graffiti-like drawing/paintings of the late great American artist Cy Twombly. The result? A meeting of old and new, refinement and edge, classy and sexy. All photos by Bess Friday.
