Last weekend, Elise and Guillaume, fellow French residents of San Francisco and owners of North37 Design, invited us to share a happy hour/ French apéro moment on their roof-top terrace overlooking the San Francisco bay and with a fantastic view of San Francisco landmarks – can you spot Alcatraz in the back?
North37 Design is an online store for French eco-friendly well-made labels, selling items made of recycled sail cloth : bags, totes, chairs and even lamps or poufs. Each item is unique, made with a sail cloth that previously travelled the oceans and got a new life as a North37 Design unique piece.
We had such a lovely time. Radostina and her husband Martin were there, along with my other half and my daughter Maya, and I also got the chance to meet the couple behind Bon Appetit Box, a gourmet French food subscription company, Zoé and Bertrand, who had kindly brought one of their box to share with the group. Elise had also prepared some lovely platters of mozzarella, cantaloupe and ham, and the rosé wine – as well as the champagne we tasted – completed the setting perfectly.
Overall, a lovely evening, spent with a fun group of people, eating good food and enjoying the gorgeous views San Francisco has to offer. Happy spring and a lovely weekend to you! Xo, Si-
