Bay Area native Catherine Kwong (catherinekwong.com) left a career in advertising to design stores for Ralph Lauren, all before setting up her own business in 2011. This month, she’s featured in the S.F. Decorator Showcase. March for anything kitchen-related: gorgeous linens and handmade serving pieces. 415-931-7433; marchsf.com. Almond Hartzog in Potrero Hill has finds like an amazing vintage Eileen Gray desk lamp. 415-355-1200; almondhartzog.com. To get inspired, I visit the Asian Art Museum (415-581-3500; asianart.org), and the new Eli Ridgway gallery (415-777-1366; eliridgway.com). Del Popolo offers a cool wood-fired pizza oven on wheels. delpopolosf.com
