LISTED...IT'S ALL ABOUT THE VIEWS







Loving this multimillion dollar estate in the Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco. This is what $15 mil will get you in SF...peep the deets,..."4 stories, 7100 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 6 baths, an upper floor terrace with spectacular views of the San Francisco bay. Mediterranean on the front exterior...for great curbside appeal...and then all modern and contemporary inside and in the back".  It's all about the views for this city by the bay.

"Listed" is a new series on the blog that features design and style inspiration in architecture and interior design. Enjoy and Be Inspired!

HERMES VESTIAIRE SS 2015 LOOK BOOK
























Cool temps and rain are only adding to my impatience for spring to get here already, and after browsing the Hermes Vestiaire Spring/Summer 2015 Look Book with their understated minimalist chic, and luxury that is synonymous with Hermes, a brand that pretty much, only the 1% could actually afford, is definitely fueling  my Monday inspiration for  summer wanderlust. I can appreciate the timelessness and a warmth that evokes a summer spent in the Mediterranean; buttery soft leathers, crisp white linen shirts, the contrast of the worn stone and nature. Enjoy and Be Inspired!
