The San Francisco Decorators Showcase is online this year thanks to concerns with safety. On the plus side that means all of us who can’t get to San Francisco can have a peak of a showcase home showing off the skills of over 20 interior and landscape designers in the city! This decorator showcase in San Francisco is in its 43rd incarnation and proceeds go towards the University High School Financial Aid program. The design showcase interiors include stunning showcase bathrooms, a clever showcase design for the kitchen, and a fabulous dining room showcase.
Showcase Home Overview
The designer showcase house is an expansive Mediterranean-style house built in 1926 in the West Clay Park neighbourhood with a view towards the iconic Golden Gate Bridge.
This 6500 s.f. showcase home is for a family relocating to the Bay Area with young kids so it’s stylish but also family-friendly. The San Francisco Decorators showcase home has got 5 bedrooms with 5 1/2 bathrooms spread out over 3 floors. A couple of the bedrooms have been converted to lounge spaces from what I can tell.
Design Showcase Interiors
Here are some of my favourite rooms for the design showcase interiors including the fabulous showcase kitchen and bath(s) and the dining room showcase. This family clearly likes to entertain so not only is there a dining room showcase but plenty of lounge options.
When you go online to check out the San Francisco Decorators showcase, you will see various options for hanging out with friends – from the liquid lounge and Mescal Bar to the wine room and wet bar. In addition, the online San Francisco Decorators showcase shows off the beautiful front and rear gardens which can accommodate both entertaining adults as well as young children.
Showcase Design for Kitchen
The showcase design for the kitchen was done by Regan Baker Design. Like all period homes, the kitchen isn’t as big as we like our modern day kitchens to be. Moreover, this showcase design for the kitchen had to take into account that there were windows everywhere! Great for natural light but not so much for kitchen storage.
I am loving the mint green of the kitchen cabinets, with the unfitted-furniture look of the kitchen island as well as the touches of bronze and marble for adding the luxury and glam factor!
Regan Baker Design did a great job keeping period features as well as getting a relatively big kitchen into a space-constrained room. There’s extra storage in a pantry room as well as space for an eat-in kitchen.
Dining Room Showcase
The showcase dining room was by Kelly Hohla interiors. Once again, the room is flooded with light making it adaptable for both dining as well as a multi-purpose room. With kids, so many times the dining room is used as space for doing homework, or doing puzzles or playing board games. Note there’s plenty of space for storage in the library-like shelves flanking the window.
The Japanese wallpaper on the ceiling adds interest to the room as well as ties in the colors of the dining chairs in this dining room showcase.
Media Showcase Room
There’s a media showcase room by Chad Dorsey Design. Instead of the usual home theatre, this designer showcase house has created a listening room for the owners to listen to music and/or read in quiet contemplation.
Just like the dining room, there’s a handprinted ceiling that draws the eye up and also ties in the brown/orange color scheme together.
Interior Design Showcase: Staircase
The dark drama of the staircase and landing is by DZine. Not only is the original staircase a beautiful piece of architecture, but its automatically eye-catching with its inky-black color. It functions as an art gallery as well with the botanical photography prints by artist Elina Frumerman.
Interior Design Showcase: Kids’ Rooms
Both kids’ rooms are gender neutral and evoke a sense of calm. Definitely rooms that they won’t age out of years to come.
My favourite, designed by Benni Amadi, the Lumber Slumber bedroom is meant for two young boys to share. With the charming trees wallpaper and the sage green color scheme, the mood is of a magical treehouse or fort for the kids to hang out.
Not only is there room for sleep but also for play and creativity – including a charming room swing and a closet turned reading nook.
Some of my favourite interior designs were found among the assorted showcase bathrooms in the San Francisco Decorators Showcase.
The Jack-and-Jill children’s bathroom is a riot of color with llamas and foxes created in mosaics by Da Vinci Marble. Dina Bandman interiors proves that children’s showcase bathrooms can be whimsical and fun without being childish. The glitter is added to the mosaic with semi-precious stones like peridot, lapis lazuli and citrine!
The master suite bathroom by Fatima Silva is not only huge but a luxurious spa-like room. The marble is once again sourced from Da Vinci Marble.
One of the guest showcase bathrooms in my opinion is a total rockstar! Check out the azure blue bathroom designed by Barbra Bright Design – deep blue tile, black and white marble and brass fixtures. Just glam!
