Today I was craving a bit of color. Sometimes you just need an edge, a dose of color. Weather it is in music or visual stimulation– whatever way you choose to spice things up, to put that smile back on your face and a snap in your fingertips. Sometimes I need to take a drive and dream a little. Did anyone else see Anderson Cooper cover the Netherlands bringing their loved ones home? The lady playing the harp was singing I still cry by Julie Miller, that song gets me every time.

Aurora Kirby had Kate and me over last night. It is such a treat to hear about her favorite books and shows because she has an amazing Irish accent that captivates you as she describes everything. Aurora got me all excited to check out Ai Weiwei’s upcoming art exhibit at Alcatraz– what a perfect place to have it. Visiting Aurora sweeps me off to many lands, her diverse experiences are so enriching. I love exploring how places are influenced. Check out her son Aaron’s place I photographed a while back. I can see the influence and design language, can you?

This weekend was filled with beautiful things. I got to attend the wedding of Daniel Crane and Mindy Bach in Golden Gate Park– few things are as beautiful as a wedding. It was almost like a reunion for me because I got to see some longtime friends. Daniel and Mindy’s wedding was perfect- filled with some laughs and some really sweet moments, you could tell they were smitten with each other. I loved the pink accents, the subtle hues brought such warmth to the wedding. I am a sucker for happy children running around– They were playing hide-and-go-seek it was so sweet, I couldn’t resist snapping a few shots.

I tried the fried gator at the Boxing Room, it is great that we have this southern-geared restaurant in Hayes Valley. Why is it called the boxing room? It was named that because its location was once where shirts and other shipping supplies were store to be boxed up. The interior is made casual and comfortable by the use of the reclaimed wood finish. The restaurant has an airy modern feel to balance the fried goodness of the creole filling cuisine. Can’t wait to go back and try dessert.

Jamie Alexander’s home is playful and sophisticated, full of light and colors and fun! It is easy to see the correlation between his place and his awesome novelty store Park Life. Jamie also serves on the board of the Headlands Center for the Arts which provides artists with support and housing on a beautiful campus. I am totally digging his collection of pop art, and his 6 year old son Hank’s hip bedroom. I can’t wait to share with you his store and the Headlands Center for the Arts in the weeks to come. Jamie is an artistic inspiration and a super cool, chill dad. Stop in and say hi at Park Life.
