A whiff of an ocean breeze blew down the runway at California College of the Arts' senior fashion show this past spring.

Where to dig in this week!
We here in San Francisco love our gourmet provisions, but from time to time we need a break for good old comfort food—and the diner never disappoints. With nostalgic charm, coffee that flows like wine, and single breakfast portions that could feed a small army, we'd like to take a moment to salute our favorites.
It'd be a crime to stay indoors today! Feel free to escape to one of these sunny, warm, and inviting beaches around the Bay Area.
It’s time to consider your next cozy escape. Since cottages can be code for floral chintz and wallpaper adorned with ribbon-necked geese, we’ve assembled 11 stylish hideaways that eschew cutesy for comfort.
Filled with eclectic pieces from mid-century to modern to craftsman, these local showrooms are sure to give you a heaping dose of décor inspiration.
Some of us here at 7x7 think that cake reigns supreme in the circular desserts category, while others believe the nostalgia, homeyness, and American spirit of pie trumps any layered creation. For the latter of us, we’ve ranked the best in the Bay. Get out your forks, and open your pie hole.
Built in 1960 by architect-to-the-wealthy George Livermore, this four-story Pac Heights condo blends old-world charm with modern amenities.
