The Ritz-Carlton rises from the top of Nob Hill like a neoclassical Roman palace. But cross the threshold into Parallel 37, the reimagined restaurant from chef Ron Siegel, and a more modern aesthetic reigns.

Our April issue just hit the stands, and it is one of my favorites so far. The cover line says it all: Cool + Collected. It's our art issue, and inside we feature the most striking pieces, the hottest new artists and the best galleries and homes that house it all. Putting this issue together allowed me to switch gears a little bit and focus on a different type of creative expression—one that's less about comfort and more about challenge. 

During a recent visit with my mother-in-law in LA, she relayed the following celeb-spotting story: Dining out, she saw one of her favorite stars at a nearby table. "It looked like he was on a date, so I had to stop myself from going over to him and telling him how much I love his work. But I kept looking over all through dinner. He is just fabulous. It was so exciting!"

In the need of some new spots for finding stellar home accessories and furnishings? These three LA hot-spots are at the top of their game. 

If the Shakers had been secret modernists, their patios might have looked a lot like this.

San Diego’s Little Italy is having a moment, and it has nothing to do with pizza.

Mid-Market, SF An old warehouse in SF’s Mid-Market neighborhood is blooming. AQ is a new dining destination focused on the seasonable and sustainable. In addition to a refreshed menu every few months from chef Mark Liberman, the art, table settings and logo will also change with the seasons.

On Friday morning I'm off to Palm Springs for my first-ever taste of Modernism Week. I've been pouring over the schedule and trying to figure out how to fit it all in. Officially, the events kick off Feb. 16 and continue through Sunday, Feb. 16. Here's a sampling of some of the things I especially don't want to miss.

Last week nearly 500 people came out to the the San Francisco Design Center Galleria to hear fashion, fabrics and home accessories designer Trina Turk tell us about her life, her business and what inspires her on a daily basis.

Looking for something awesome to do this weekend? We've seen a lot of cool things around SF in our days, but this one takes the cake.
