This ravishing road trip is certainly off to a spectacular start!

Our friend the distinguished and delightful aesthete, Philip Bewley, has been an invaluable resource, offering perfectly sublime suggestions for what to see, and where to dine. An authority on all things beautiful, his exquisite eye will certainly make for some epic posts here on WIJW.

And of course, connecting in person with many of our WIJW readers here on the West coast is proving to be a huge treat!

In any case, just a bit of a teaser post – I’m captured by the super chic Philip Bewley documenting highlights of fabulous Filoli. More on this spectacular estate upon our return.

  1. Hi James,

    So thrilled to see that you’re in the Bay Area. In particular at Filioli! One of my favorite places. Having been born and raised in the Bay Area, and to have worked for many years in San Francisco your blog certainly makes me long for home! So happy that you were able to connect with Philip who I have known for many years. He is a real treasure and a great source for pursuing beauty in the Bay Area.

    Today must be my Cali day, I just discovered an artist called Tracy Porter, her company is called Poetic Wanderlust, based in Santa Ynez. I actually ordered one of her jute rugs today- and saw zinnias on her site that remind me of your Filoli portrait. I also recently saw the new film “Blue Jasmine” – which is partly filmed in San Francisco. WIJW always inspires me, and I know that you will be inspired by your California trip, as artists and designers have for over a hundred years!

  3. This is such a great photograph!! California in all its beauty; and… you are so lucky to visit Filoli with Philip Bewley! Look forward to more.

    Hello My Dog-Eared Pages,

    Philip Bewley is just so delicious and I was very blessed to have been given so much inspiration by him.

    Wait till you see our – Ravishing Road Trip posts.

    Dear Michael,

    Just back to NYC and get wait to begin sharing this remarkable journey.

    I was truly inspired and get wait to have new projects infused with all that I have gleaned from this experience.
