Gorgeous Linens & Lunch with Lea

A few weeks ago I spent an afternoon with Lea McIntosh. She was in need of some gorgeous linens and had made an appointment with Lily Yeung at Wildflower Linen up in San Francisco to browse their samples and place an order for a client. I tagged along just for fun. I'd attended Wildflower's opening during the winter but had neglected to bring my camera along that night and had been wanting to go back up to grab a few shots for the blog.

As you can see this is a very special place. The fabrics and display pieces transform what was a ho hum interior into a an opulent display of textures and colors that epitomize the term "eye candy."

The variety of fabrics is pretty mind blowing. From simple to beaded, ruched, crinkled, and more, the possibilities are endless at Wildflower Linen.

Two versions of their gorgeous, bustled covers...

With extra bling...

I love this one! It's so unique. 

Layers of ethereal chiffon...

And to finish off, a sexy lace up number...

After we said our thanks and goodbyes to Lily we headed back down to San Jose but stopped off for lunch at one of Lea's favorite restaurants

Vive Sol in Mountain View on El Camino.

The rustic exterior stands in contrast to the whimsically decorated interior.

Of course there were chips...

and salsas...

For lunch I ordered the soup. You can't tell from this photo but it was a big bowl! And really yummy.

For those of you who love meat, there are many options at Vive Sol...

Owners Hector and Helena's philosophy: "We believe that fine food and warm hospitality are central to the life well lived."
