By Gloria Tai (Aug 19, 2004)
Once that familiar San Francisco fog rolls in, you can't help but think that Bay Area Indian summers are just around the corner. And then the visions of backyard, rooftop, and beachside cookouts come to mind. The timing couldn't be better to get into gear and shop for those wonderful gadgets and accessories for dining al fresco. Large chain stores like Crate and Barrel and Pottery Barn are practically giving away outdoor-themed merchandise in order to make room for the fall back-to-school season. Bay Area residents are just beginning to dust off those beach chairs and picnic blankets... More

Floral Extraordinare
By Nirmala Nataraj (Aug 19, 2004)
If you ask Mary Lois Hare to give you a condensed history of her work as a designer, you'll quickly discover that she's a jack of all trades - and from the looks of it, she's mastered them all. Hare is an award-winning San Francisco-based event and floral designer, interior designer, set designer, and visual and performing artist. Celebrated for her dreamy theater designs, verdant nature-inspired installations and sculptures, grass-covered indoor furniture, and live theater performances, Hare's personal aesthetic is borrowed from "using objects found in nature, those things deeply familiar to us." More

People may say that clothes make the man, but there's nothing more indicative of someone's personality than the manner in which he or she chooses to furnish a home. Tasteful drapes and puffy cushions might serve as markers for classic sensuality; ergonomic Panton chairs and monochromes might indicate a get-to-the-point simplicity. Most likely, there's a little bit of everything in our personal chic. Whether it's French country, American classic, or an altogether unique universe of textiles and upholstery, there's a place in the city that reflects each decorator's special je ne sais quoi. More

Valentine's Gifts
By SFS Staff (Feb 21, 2003)
The one time I had a boyfriend on Valentine's Day, he gave me a heart-shaped box filled with those candy hearts stamped with little messages, and on the outside, the $1.99 price tag was still stuck on. You might think that this must have been a ten-year-old boyfriend from my childhood days, but no, it was just a few years ago. Since my boyfriend was foreign, he probably had a different idea of standard American practice for the holiday, but he also had no money and was cheap to boot. More
