For San Francisco Interior Designer Sarah Holland, luxury design is everywhere. Her edgy and iconic style is inspired by luxury interiors and high fashion; so naturally, in between working with clients, she spends loads of time exploring high-end retailers and showrooms. Sarah also stays busy by collaborating on fresh pop-up installation events. Here, she shares her San Francisco weekend routine with Haute Living.

My weekend starts with Illy coffee, then…

–       I check out a blog created by fashion stylist Ana Dahlman and by Reverie fashion designer Ronit Genik. The blog features unique fashion and lifestyle posts. –       Walking around Union Square, I always pull inspiration from bright retail windows, art galleries, and glossy fashion magazines.


–       Park Tavern, the design is reclaimed and the vibe is chill. My favorite thing to order with a mimosa – the avocado toast with a poached egg. In the cute North Beach area across from the park, it’s a great place to get lost.

–       Saks in San Francisco, It’s my go to – they have everything from red carpet to denim. Some of my favorite everyday lines at Saks are Rag & Bone, Haute Hippie, and Theory. On my way out I always manage to lose track of time at the YSL and Armani makeup counter. –       Bloomingdales, because I recently discovered they have a small section of Zadig & Voltaire there and they don’t have a store in SF. Love the contrast of distressed and glittery pieces. –       Cesare Paciotti, or closest store is LA, my favorite shoe designer love the daggers on everything – so rock and roll. –       For luxury interiors, The Arkitektura Showrooms, Cassina Showroom, and B&B Italia Showroom are the best selection in San Francisco. Other great pieces to see there – the Diesel with Foscarini lighting and Alias furniture collection. –       Rada Katz Fine Antique and Estate Jewelry at the Four Seasons Hotel in San Francisco, Rada is a talented jewelry designer and features some of the most rare and exotic pieces. – Melissa Fleis fashion designer and project runway finalist, Melissa’s designs are geometric with some serious edge. Check out her new collection online at


–       Jones, Great industrial design with a nice outdoor space. Perfect place to catch up with friends for pre-dinner drinks.

–       Café Claude, I love that everything here is really uncomplicated and it just works. You can expect at the downtown location sexy tres cool style, a nice jazz band, and great wine, with steak frites – and don’t forget to order the Crème Brulée it’s worth all of the calories.
