As I strolled through the streets and Halloween festivities, I found myself drawn to the demure. I found contentment looking for the furtive decorations that caught my eye. I am loving the murmurous ripples of spooky. Happy Halloween!!

I love to step back and just look at icons of this city. San Francisco has so much history, built by loving accepting people. From North Beach to Russian hill, these cityscapes have so many individual stories to tell. These hills, this sea– home. I am so fortunate to see these views on a daily basis. Last night I was in awe of how much noise this city can make, the Giants make this town go wild– honking, screaming, helicopters, and fireworks, even the trolley car bells were nonstop. It’s is always fun to experience these joys, but this morning I am extra thankful for the peaceful quit- it is kind of amazing how little noise we make in contrast to how much we can make.

Locanda is a refined spot to dine. I have a special warm fondness for the cuisine. The kitchen is open– everyone can watch the chef’s working their magic. I think I love the wolf drawings the most– their wild images can induce kilig for me. Everything is clean and delicious, a perfect scrumptious balance.

The Interval bar was built on the notion of expansive thinking. I’m loving the community minds that came together to construct such a concept advocating long-term thinking, the Long Now. The space has a floor-to-ceiling library, a spiral staircase, and a clock that was built to reframe the way people think. Powered by seasonal temperature changes, this clock auto-corrects by monitoring the noon sun.  There are seminars held at the Interval that promote connection, empowering global philanthropy and exploring the future of science. Step in and discuss longevity, patience, and responsibility while sipping on some Sightglass coffee..yum.

I love hosting dinner parties around the holidays! Having people over always inspires a fresh look for my small space. Sometimes rearranging furniture is all you need to completely change appearance. I don’t have much space so I find it key to keep my decor simple. I believe simplicity is elegant. I choose to use leaves as an element for my table to make it feel special. What inspires you this season?
