San Francisco Decorator Showcase :: Teen Girls Bathroom

As I mentioned before, the 2015 San Francisco Decorator Showcase  featured lots and lots of beautiful wallcoverings. One space that stood out, was the “Lip Service” teen girl’s bathroom by designers Jennifer Wundrow and Heather Brock of Nest Design Co. The daring kiss-themed wallpaper by Voutsa in crimson, tangerine and blush covered much of the walls. The playful, modern pattern was paired with a classic marble herringbone floor. In addition, the bathroom features strong sculptural pieces including the freestanding cast-iron tub by Kohler and a gorgeous custom inlaid horn vanity. Touches of brass are found throughout the space such as the statement light fixtures, contemporary faucets and brass intaglio inlaid in the flooring and shower. Such wonderful details in the space!

San Francisco Decorator Showcase :: Living Room

Glamorous. The one word I’d use to describe the Living Room designed by Phillip Silver in this year’s San Francisco Decorator Showcase. The space was inspired by the 60s glam of Yves Saint Laurent and the luxurious high-end fashion trends hitting New York, Paris and London. The hot pink and burnt orange accents (colors of YSL’s “Rive Gauche” label) pop in the otherwise neutral space. Phillip’s own beautiful custom furnishings are found throughout the room (the lucite coffee tables are a great example – love!) and are intermixed with Italian and French antiques. This space is simply stunning. I hope you have the chance to tour it!

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,
