After a long night of food, wine, and song, the BlogTour Cali gang headed back to the beachside cottages to rest in preparation for the long road trip the following day. We traveled north out of Cambria, which showed off its spectacular rolling California hills, along the Pacific Coast Highway until we reached San Francisco. Zephyr Ventilation graciously opened their show room to us for dinner, a Zephyr media tour, and a presentation by the wonderful architect and Zephyr designer, Fu tung Cheng.
The drive was breathtaking–the steep cliffs and winding roads made a few of us a bit uneasy, but the beauty of the coast seemed to make all of our worries disappear. Faces and cameras pressed against the window glass, we continued through Big Sur until our view of the Pacific was hidden behind an immense forest of redwoods. The drive was almost over.
San Francisco was the final destination on the BlogTour Cali road trip where VIctorian architecture, winding streets and one very iconic bridge welcomed us to our last stop of the day–Zephyr Ventilation’s San Francisco Show Room for dinner, cocktails, and a presentation by the one and only Fu tung Cheng.
Zephyr was showcasing a brand new hood color from their Okeanito line. Zephyr’s Okeanito Hood now comes in rose gold perfectly in sync with the color’s recent popularity. We asked each blogger what their favorite hood is and why. The overwhelming answer: The rose gold Okeanito hood for its classically modern look and clean, simple lines.
During dinner, each of us had a chance to talk with Fu tung Cheng one-on-one. We were gifted Fu tung Cheng’s new book, Concrete At Home, to take a look at the possibilities of incorporating concrete in the home.
We were honored to have Fu tung Cheng tell us his story from humble beginnings and to see the passion that goes into the designs that he creates. Over the course of 30 years, he has turned his home, still the same home by the way, into a masterpiece that flourishes as does his creativity, using products that range from concrete to high school gymnasium flooring. His ability to create exceptional home interiors and exteriors, turning a typical suburban home into a modern work of art, ignites an inspiration to create beauty in the most unexpected places.
