The whole world is moving and I’m standing still – San Francisco, CA

ASOS top

The interior of this hotel room is like my ideal place, original exposed brick wall, and a vintage vaulted window frame that opens (reluctantly, with a lot of wiggling) to lead up to the rooftop overlooking the city or down to a fire escape (have always romanticized fire escapes from that Postal Service song), and it lets in a glorious flood of light.

I’ll be the fire escape that’s bolted to the ancient brick
Where you will sit and contemplate your day.

    I love exposed brick, too. And open duct ceilings…the city-living feel. Is that hotel in Napa?

    that top is pretty much perfection. the print, the sheerness, the cut out in the back. LOVE IT! xo
