ampersand, san francisco by leslie santarina.

i went plant shopping last week, which always makes me happy and inspires me to track down more green. i think in another life i’d like to be a gardener. being around plants just makes me so content, and i’m always envious of the folks who work at the nursery. these homes all have nice touches of green, living things in them which looks so refreshing and pretty, especially with all that white. greenery looks great against black, too — and i’m actually considering painting my new house solid black (scandinavian style) with some white trim. but, i digress — here’s a look at loads of green and white. a mighty great green team.

what’s up, doc?

denmark's house doctor / sfgirlbybay

every single thing i see from the denmark-based house doctor is just so lovely. so, this is my desperate-sounding plea for them to please find distribution here in the united states! i think they’d do smashingly well here — so how about it, doc? we need a spot to shop house doctor stateside! their collections are vast, and so well-designed — from accessories and homewares to furniture and home office gear, and beautiful lighting, too. i find myself cursing under my breath at my inability to make them mine. have a look. see what i mean?

new + noteworthy: feist forest table / sfgirlbybay

1. the ashling table from feist forest.

for this new and noteworthy post i felt a rather modern bent — lots of geometric shapes, sharp angles and clean lines. like louise gray’s reinterpreted, handcreafted modern quilts, and the flower “LYS” vase – a combination of vessel, vase and candle holder, from mizko design. now that’s a real multi-tasker! and some of the coolest looking color-blocked lockers i’ve ever seen, from heartwork.

The Parker when it sizzles — find us sipping a cucumber water by the pool, beating the heat in a lightweight frock and hiding behind our statement sunnies. If there’s anywhere to stay cool in Palm Springs it’s within the eclectically sleek modern walls of The Parker hotel. Designed by Jonathan Adler himself, this is where those vintage California visions come to life. wear this there.
