This past week I visited the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2018. Our visit was sponsored by the local American Society of Interior Designers Northern California Central Nevada chapter and Premier Bath & Kitchen Rancho Cordova, CA. The home was located at 465 Marina Boulevard. It was designed in 1930 as a Spanish Revival home by San Francisco Architect George Edward McCrea. Each year this fundraiser event benefits tuition for San Francisco University High School students. The tour is open until May 28, 2018.

The entry and foyer by Molie Malone was exquisite from the custom hand painted wallpaper on muslin by de Gournay to the lighting fixtures by HEWN/Fuse.
The kitchen was a masterpiece of color by Designer Ian Stallings. He used Bluestar appliances and Da Vinci Marble for the stone. His paint color match for the cabinets and 16 coats of lacquer continue to highlight the vibrancy of the kitchen. It was stunning. Ian also was responsible for the breakfast nook and the family room which was very playful.
Gender neutral was the direction Dina Bandman chose to go with the baby nursery. She focused on using the colors yellow and mint green. De Gournay “Lemondrop Lullaby” wallpaper was used in conjunction with hand painted fabric for the window treatments. A custom Lucite Plexi-Craft crib was the modern star of the room.
With green being my favorite color it was no surprise that I liked this powder room completed by Beth Daecher. The seascape design featured flooring and green onyx vanity slab from Walker Zanger, and Phillip Jeffries vinyl wallpaper and much more.
The Master bathroom was a mixture of textures, materials, and organic elements that culminated in a beautiful modern and classic design. The wood elements were placed along the shower glass enclosure making it appear that the shower was covered in wood only. It was something I hadn’t seen before.
To conclude I had a very nice day enjoying the San Francisco Decorator Showcase and topped it off with a trip to the Legion of Honor exhibit of Casanova. I went home a happy designer.
