San Francisco Decorator Showcase :: Dining Room

The striking formal dining room in this year’s San Francisco Decorator Showcase was created by Cecile Starin. In addition to being trained as a fine art painter, graphic illustrator and interior designer, Cecile was a fashion designer for over twenty years. Her extensive experience is most evident in her design projects and most recently in the creation of the showcase’s formal dining space. For the room’s design, Cecile brings a raw, modern twist to the controlled, classical architectural details by incorporating street art into the setting. The noted San Francisco street muralist, Ian Ross was commissioned to create the bold black and white abstract murals to mimic ocean wave patterns and wild flora found off the Northern California coast. The colorful, recycled aerosol “Spray Can” sculptures flanking the fireplace are also by Ian.  The furnishings are too a mixture of modern and classical. For example, a large circular table with a galvanized top and earthy root base are paired with timeless Loius XVI black patent leather chairs. The eye-catching Italian LED chandelier for NIDO Living SF features a set of four concentric burnished brass rings. It’s stunning.

I love the design’s juxtaposition of contemporary street art with classical, glamorous luxury. What a feat Cecile has pulled off here! Hope you have a chance to see this room and showcase for yourself.

happy decorating,

California Traditional Home Tour

A few weeks ago, a traditional style home designed by Chloe Warner of Redmond Aldrich Design caught my eye. Domaine featured the transformation of the beautiful Hillsborough, California home. Warner’s client, a Williams Sonoma Executive knew what she wanted – a happy, colorful and youthful space. As you will see, the result is just that. Using playful fabrics, chic wallpaper and elegant furnishings, Warner created a fresh and inviting home – just what her client dreamed of.
