Last May, LA-based interior designer Kelly Wearstler confirmed that she would take the design helm for the Renoir Hotel reno. And in this month's Elle, Wearstler revealed her regular hangouts and shops that she visits during her monthly stays in SF. Farmers Markets, William Stout Architectural Books, and Nopalito top her list. But it's the Castro's graffiti murals that seem to have left the biggest mark and inspired Wearstler's soon-to-be released Paperless Post line (Wearstler's actual stationery of choice). We'll have to wait a few more months to see Wearstler's transformation of the boutique hotel in Mid-Market but for now, we can tour our town the Wearstler-way.
