I think I just found my next vacation destination: the Petit Hotel Hafa in Sayulita, Mexico. The six-room hotel sits just a few blocks from the beach, and has been decorated with Mexican, Mediterranean and Moroccan influences in mind. And would you believe the rooms are all under $100/night?! I think it’s time to dust off my passport…

A while back I bookmarked a photo a friend of mine took of an amazing leather chair at a hotel he was staying at in Austin, Texas. I couldn’t figure out who made it at the time and had forgotten about it until cleaning out my bookmarks recently. But this time I searched a little harder and was able to track down the designer: Jamey Garza of Garza Design + Build. Aren’t the chairs gorgeous? I’m particularly fond of the Desert Round Lounge.
Renegade Craft Fair was in San Francisco this weekend, and a few friends and I ventured up to Fort Mason to check it out. I recognized many of the same vendors as last year but there were a handful of new ones too. I snagged a handful of business cards for gift ideas but I couldn’t resist buying a few things for myself too.
I got a beautiful leather and brass necklace from Tangleweeds. I forgot my camera (argh!) but fortunately Jeannine took some photos of her booth. The one I bought is the half moon with cream leather on the far right.
I also got a succulent planter from Planted by Chandra Abel Designs. As you can imagine, her booth was a big hit at the fair. I had to fight my way to the front of the table to grab one of those lovelies!

So much to love about Jane Herman’s gorgeous Brooklyn apartment (she’s Gap’s Director of Concept). I’m crazy for all the white and wood – it makes the apartment so light and airy! Aren’t those built-in bookshelves and window seats great? And hello, awesome bar over the radiator!
