From Place To Space: Go West - San Francisco


This week is kicking off with great news. It is not about a past trip, but the announcement of my big holidays this year and it will be happening in just a few weeks! Mid September I am off to Paris and then on the plane westwards to the US and Canada! I will be doing a roadtrip in the Pacific Northwest discovering Seattle, Portland and Vancouver and then heading southwards to San Francisco. Hence, I will show you the places where I will be staying during my big American trip and today I want to show you one of the absolute highlights - my 'home' in San Francisco for a week.

In bustling San Francisco I will be staying in the best place ever an interior loving guy could wish for. I will be staying in the home of design blogger icon and my all-time favorite blogger Victoria Smith of sfgirlbybay. When she offered her home to me, I was beyond happy and - truth be told - a bit speechless. I have admired Victoria's style and sense for design ever since I've embarked the interior design blogger adventure. 



Actually, I wanted to meet up with Victoria for a coffee in San Francisco, but she will be heading to Europe at the very same time as a keynote speaker for Meet the Blogger in Amsterdam. But I am pretty sure it will be like meeting her through her impeccable home. I love to 'meet' people through their personal homes and style. And this will be a more than pleasant rendez-vous in San Francisco.



I warn you, I will bring loads of pictures of Victoria's home back and share with you, but I am pretty sure you will enjoy it as much as I will. For now I am sharing her shots published on sfgirlbybay.com of her 'Modern Cottage'. 


I can't wait to head off to my 'Go West' adventure and up to then I will share my next American 'homes' coming Monday. Stay tuned & happy week!

  12. Blago tebi Igore :). Da znaš da ti malo zavidim. Baš sam se prekjuče srela sa sestričnom, koja živi u San Franciscu, letjela je iz Ljubljane pa smo imale par sati za priču i kavu. naravno opet smo po ne znam koji put planirale moju posjetu :P.
    Šteta što nećeš imati priliku, da se vidiš sa Viktorijom. Jedva čekam tvoje poste sa tog putovanja i želim ti sretan put, naravno.

  21. You lucky duck! Victoria's apartment is one of my favorites of all time.:)
    You will have a great time in SF. And at that time Karl, the fog, should be also on vacation, far away from San Francisco. ;)

  22. What an amazing adventure you have coming up! I travel to SF for work and I'm sure you'll love it- it's a beautiful city, and there's so much shopping and dining to be done. If you're looking for restaurants I've always enjoyed these:

    Le Colonial - French Vietnamese fusion
    kokkari - Greek
    House of Nanking - Chinese
    Colibri - Mexican
    See's Candy - sweet treats
